The Kangol Anglobasque Beret in black were the first hats made by Kangol. Kangol was founded by Jacob Spreiregen who imported berets from France to Britain. Jacob could not get enough berets from France to satisfy his British customers in the 1930s, and so he began producing them himself in the UK. The hat is 100% wool, with satin lining, and has a thin nylon web sweatband. The diameter of the beret is 10 inches.

Hat Sizing Info:
Small - 55cm, Medium - 57cm, Large - 59cm, X-Large - 61cm
I've tried many other berets but unfortunately they are so small for me because I have a big head (about 59cm), I ordered a black XL and its a bit big for me, but still very perfect. Warm and pretty, I hope there will be more colour options in the future, like dark green and burgundy, that would be great! Excellent product, thank you.

Yes, I recommend this product.
kangol anglobasque beret
I am pleased with this hat. I ordered a medium size and it fits well. It's snug and warm and stays in place when the wind is blowing strongly. An earlier reviewer says the wool itches a bit. Yes that is true but I usually forget about it and it doesn't prevent me from wearing it. I have also bought the more expensive French beret which Village Hats sell - Jaxon. That doesn't itch so if you are worried about this, perhaps you ought to buy the more expensive product.

A bit scratchy
Village Hats is fast and efficient with an amazing customer services record so I wouldn't like my review to focus on that. The hat fits well but, unfortunately the wool is they type that causes itching. I've only worn it for a day and don't think I'll get much use out of it. Sad but true.

My head larger than I thoughtI
I very recently ordered a Kangol mens Anglo Basque beret from you, size medium. It arrived the next day and I thought it fitted but after a few days realised it was too small. Having worn it a week I felt could not return it and so ordered a second beret, size large at a vbery small discount, less than I hoped for! of 10 percent.This too arrived next day and fits perfectly. In both cases the telephone service was 5 star, speedy, pleasant, helpful, and efficient. I will come to you again if ever I need another mail order hat. Mail order sizing is always a problem be it shoes, shirts, trousers, or hats. Thank you
