About Military Black Berets

The official cap of the United States Army troops and worn by renowned armed forces such as the British Army's Royal Tank Regiment, the Russian Naval Infantry, and the Royal Canadian Armed Corps, the military black beret was first proposed by the Alpine Hunters or the elite mountain infantry of the French Army. The military black beret was chosen for the British Royal Tank Corps and the color black was particularly selected so that it wouldn't show oil stains for tank crewmen. You can find a vast inventory of these historical berets on eBay. The classic design of an army black beret features a ribbon around the inner circle of the hat, which is made of either leather, cotton, or silk. You can wear this traditional headgear tilted to the side like the army troops, flat on the head, or tilted to the front. Select a beret with a drawstring that allows you to tighten the hat according to your desired size. If you are looking for an everyday look, simply wear your hat without any insignia. However, you can also choose to adorn your hat with different types of symbols or badges that are usually displayed on one side.
