Big in Japan

Berets are big in Japan, but interestingly, most popular are the locally made berets versus the traditional Basques from Spain, France and South America.
Unable to try any myself, I can only judge on the pictures I found on some Japanese web sites, like this one, or this one.
Many Japanese berets seem to come with print, badges or embroideries on it, suggesting potential customers to be from a generation or what after me. 
Personally, I quite like these cotton berets, complete with anchor.
