Vrai Basque Ardennais - Sized

The béret Vrai Basque 10 pouces (28cm diameter) in vert nocturne (dark green) is identical to the once famous Berrueta label, made by the former manufacturer Blancq-Olibet from Nay. A beret that was very popular with hikers and trampers, outdoors enthusiasts, vintners, hunters and many more. It is also the beret used by the Belgian Chasseurs Ardennais; a mountain infantry regiment that -very rare in the military- wears Basque berets (with the cabillou in place), similar to the French Chasseurs Alpins.
These berets are now exclusively, and in a small number,  available through South Pacific Berets, fitted with leather headband in a variety of sizes.
