John Lennon (1)

Do I need to introduce John Lennon? John Winston Ono Lennon, (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) was an English singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles, and together with Paul McCartney formed one of the most successful songwriting partnerships of the 20th century. That already is too much of an introduction...
I came upon this photo (above) and it is hard to believe Lennon is not wearing a stonewashed cotton Tolosa Tupida beret - one of my personal favorites, but they were definitely not around when this picture was taken... Any suggestions would be welcome!
Anyway, this was not the only beret in his collection, having numerous black Basques as well. One of these sold one year ago for an undisclosed sum through Rock 'n Roll Investments
