Whats size of beret would you buy to allow for shrinkage if the person had a 55cm head size, and is there any where in Glasgow i can get an AAC beret?

Boil your face, then put the beret on, it will help it shrink.

Buy the size that you need for your head, then shrink it. The material shrinks, not the band (well it does a little, but will stretch back to fit)

How do you forget how to shrink a beret?!?!

Hot and cold water, repeat. Shave as necessary. No need to cut out the lining if you do't want to?

Yes, I can think of nothing more scary than some lad rocking up dressed as a member of the AAC...

ha has all the gear from the flightsuit, to the boots and gloves, patches etc, when he gets the beret he will look the part hopefully. He is still a bit too thin though

Syledis, my o/h just bought yet another beret.This one comes with an idiots guide to shaping :wink:

1. immerse beret alternately in hot & cold water until soaked through.
DO NOT WET LEATHER BAND :?

2. place beret on head and mould to desired shape.

3 .leave beret to dry naturally

btw it also says ..........dry clean only :? :?

May I also suggest you buy the little tike one of these, to poke out from his growbag.

I had a beret brush to brush my red beret with.
If you're a hat, just use a boot cleaning brush.

Red? Never heard a Monkey call someone a Hat?

You sure?

Syledis,
Did the little chap manage to get hold of the items he wanted?

I think the swollen head would be a good idea and I'm sure his two erstwhile patrons would agree...(MDN and Flashy).
