They're Back Again: The Peaked Berets!

No logical explanation why it is so hard to source these Peaked Berets, but every time it is a struggle to get a good number in. With the new stock in, all back-orders posted today and on the look-out for more, I hope not having to say "no" for a while. It seems to be the way it goes... 

Made immortally famous by Dutch COBRA painter Corneille, these are true Basque berets (including txortena) with an added peak. Popular among artists after the war, but disappeared in the late sixties from view.
