The most distinctive item of traditional Basque clothing is the beret worn by Basque men. Beret is a round, flat-crowned hat with usually a small stub in the center. The stub in the center is called the “txortena” in Basque. Basque beret was popularized when Napolean III took interest in them during his visits to Biarritz. Since then, It has been commonly even in Basque countries till today. The color of the beret is different with geography. Basque countries wear blue berets, people of Navarre and Aragon wear red berets, and common workers in France and Spain wear black berets. Berets is something I would like to try on someday.
