Does there really have to be a section specifically for women? No, since Marlene Dietrich caused a scandal in the 1920's by wearing a ("man's") Basque beret (and starting her own collection of 64 berets in the end...), women have been wearing the beret in great numbers.

There is a difference though. Where women can wear "men's" berets without problem, they can also wear the very large, soft and floppy berets that many men would shy away from (although great to cover a Rastafarians hairdo as well!).

These (33cm/13") berets are floppy, made of 100% soft cotton and available in black only (and nowhere else outside South Pacific Berets).
