Replacement for Victors beret?

#1
Well before Victors got shut down they used to sell the best quality beret's to get that pukka finish.

Anyone know where the best place is now to buy them?

What the fcuk is up with the spatics on ARRSE at the moment? I think this has to be the 3rd thread on where to buy berets from in the past month?

Don't people get berets issued anymore?? Why the hell would anyone waste cash on something they can get for free, and they look no different.

Bless poppet I was actually enquiring for my old man as both he and my uncle told me to buy a decent one to replace the shit quality one you get issued.

Funnily enough I respect their opinion more both having served in Para Reg than some mong mouthing off behind a keyboard, go back to your fat Mrs mate she's missing you.

Top tip, the issued beret is spot on. I never purchased one in my life. But if you want to look a cnut with a beret you've paid for, feel free.

I hope your attitude improves, you're gonna get filled in.

Good old Victors eh! Facing the 5's wine bar in Aldershot. Yep excellent berets. Next best is now.DUBORA's. Thats where all us sweats got them from once Victors shut down. Apparently DuBora got the contract from them. Good berets though and I couldn't tell the difference.

Cheers for the advice stain, maybe you should read a page from your own book? Personally I don't think taking pride in your kit is a bad thing.

TBH the issue berets are not bad now. The kangol shoite that made your head look like the extension of runway 4 at heathrow, that they issued in ninety eighty something or other are now long gone, you even get a leather band on them these days. Save your cash matey.

With that attitude, I take it that you could be going RMP,because you seem to have got the hang of making friends down to a fine art.

Going to last very fucking long being a gobby cunt. Your old man and uncle may have been in, but you're not darling, wind your neck in or you're going to be in for a slap.

Editted for spelling like a twat.

You are correct of course. The issued beret these days is adequate, though you can't beat a Victors beret.


Especially in Maroon. :)

I only came on to answer a question for my old man not to get started on by some keyboard hero to be fair. The only time I am going to take shit of anyone is when they outrank me simple.
