The beret is possibly one of the most iconic, timeless hat styles of all time. This piece is a late 30s version, in softly gathered black velvet. It is soft sides and slouched, made of rayon velvet and lined with mesh. The left side is fully shirred, so you get some dimension when it slouches right. The interior grosgrain band was made adjustable in fit with an elastic band on the right, so this will accommodate all head sizes

This hat presents beautifully and is ready to wear. As noted, the interior grosgrain was altered to accommodate elastic - this slightly messes up the shirring at the right, when the hat is at rest, but not when worn. I find no other issues to note!
