I have several San Diego Hat wool berets in pink, camel, navy, burgundy and burgundy tweed and love them all. The faux leather band, slightly different shape and chenille fabric made this one stand out. This company has great customer service, too, by the way.
My daughter has this hat and loves it! I decided to order one for an upcoming beach trip. I love the hat too! The brim size is perfect to protect and great for more than just a beach trip. I wear it doing yard work, daily 5 mile walks and playing with grandchildren on the playgrounds.
The Beret that I bought was a gift. The recipient absolutely loves it! In fact, she suggested it become an annual tradition!
