A beret is a soft round cap with a flat crown which is worn by both men and women. The cap fits snugly around the head, and the soft crown can be shaped in a variety of ways, though it is commonly worn angled to one side. A beret is differentiated from a cap because it does not have a peak. Berets were originally worn by Basque peasants and were knitted from wool. Today, berets are normally made from wool felt.

DelMonico Hatter offers berets both lined and un-lined, and with and without interior sweatbands. Berets have traditionally been associated with Frenchmen, artists, painters, and intellectuals, and are now worn by all United States Army units as distinguished by the color of their headgear: Green - Special Forces, Brown - Rangers, Maroon - Paratroopers, Black - all other US Army units. Some of the world's finest berets are manufactured by Borsalino Hats in Italy, Hoquy in France and Kangol, the last of which is designed in Great Britain and manufactured in China. In addition to the traditional black beret, DelMonico Hatter has a wide selection of berets in a full palate of colors.
