The Czech Service Star has been in production for decades, but is now only made on special order. South Pacific Berets has done so and stocks the Service Star in black, navy and winter-green (not available anywhere else, not even in the Czech Republic). This is a kind of hybrid beret; with the size of a
large diameter Basque beret in 11.5" or 29.2cm, while having a military style
<outside> rim with drawstring and three air vents on the side. A very well finished beret with an exceptional tartan lining.
The Service Star is a seriously comfortable and pleasant beret to wear; the leather headband can be worn "military style" with the rim outwards, or "Basque style", with the rim folded inwards.
Originally only available in classic black, but exclusively for South Pacific Berets now also in Navy and Winter-Green.
