The Facts from the Clothing and Fashion Encyclopedia

A worker spins a Beighau beret. 
This great picture comes from The Clothing and Fashion Encyclopedia, offering some interesting facts on the beret. Factually not always correct ("Originally worn by nineteenth-century French seamen, it was adopted during World War I for alpine troops"), sometimes very funny:
"The beret is worn by modern armies worldwide, including Russia, Iraq, Pakistan, Venezuela, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and South Africa".
