Beret sizing?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Im just about to order a new one due to the unfortunate circumstances that ended the life of my last one (me) But im stuck as to what size I need.

    On the site it goes from size 54 to size 60, Great I thought, Centimeters...

    So I got my old beret wrapped some string the length of the leather band, measured it...69cm, added 4cm for shrinkage etc because its a bit tight atm anyway...73cm.

    Now ive either got a big fook off head (I know its a big donkey head but it cant be that much bigger than average) or 54-60 isnt centimeters but a sizing guide.

    Does anyone know what size I need? :?
     
  2. My size beret is 60, my head is 62cm
    Then again the beret is Maroon. Phone the site and ask.
     
  3. Site? Can't you go to your stores and get another?
     
  4. Im TA so wouldnt know until about 2 weeks time when we go back, but I cant really wear the one I have ATM on parade.
