Barbisio in Turin offers an extensive collection of men's summer berets made from pure cotton and winter berets in wool and cashmere.
The beret, which has military origins, was later adopted by civilians and adorned with a "little tail" in the centre of the hat where the felted yarn (such as boiled wool) ends.
It is usually plain but there's no shortage of tweed or check variations.
There are flat berets like the one revived by the television series Don Matteo, as well as the round and rigid type.
Come and choose the model and colour that best suits your style and your outfit.
