How to find your head measurement for a beret.
Berets are worn with a closer fit than your panama or trilby. Whereas with other hats you normally go up a size from your head measurement, with a beret you are likely to stay the same. To find your beret size measure your head by running a soft tape around the crown of your head about half an inch above the ears. Hold the tape tightly but with enough slack that you can slide the tape measure about. The tightness of the tape will be about the same as the tightness of the beret's headband and should give you the correct size of your beret. We recommend that you do this three times to provide an average.

The Txapeldun is the quintessential Basque beret, the most perfect embodiment of a tradition that goes back centuries, a symbol for champions (the Txapeldun is often used as a trophy in competitions of sports and the brain), the ultimate protection from sun, rain and snow for the Basque shepherds in the Pyrenees mountains, a hat widely adopted by artists with a reminiscence of the Renaissance and generally, a fantastic beret to wear.
