Berets were the typical headgear of whalers; Basques alike many other nationalities; partly tradition (Basques), mostly convenience.
Times have changed, luckily, and apart from some stubborn Japanese and Scandinavians, hunting these animals is a thing of the past.
It always makes my day when I spot a whale (orca's or dolphins) when driving along Wellington's south coast - always a magnificent sight.
Seems many people share this sentiment, even showing so by wearing 'whale berets'.
