A Beret is a soft round cap often worn by military forces, police units or the sensibly chic. Berets were originally worn by the Northern Basque peasants in Southern France and first used as a military headdress by the French Chasseurs alps in in the early 1880s. When properly worn the Beret should fit snugly around the head and is commonly pushed to one side. Make a fasion statement with your jet set Parisian or give your impressionist artist some style. Also a great accessory for myth-bustin’ geniuses, comedians, musicians and beatniks. Beret fits most standard minifig heads.
