Parkhurst, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, has been a long time vendor to The Village Hat Shop. We import both hats and berets (we are also berets.com), from Parkhurst and transport them to our stores in California for the simple reason that nobody does what Parkhurst does. Specifically, this line of headwear offers the comfort and breathability of 100% cotton. These hats and berets are fashionable, durable and washable. We often get inquiries from customers who need a soft hat because of a medical condition that requires a hat or beret be worn on a sensitive scalp. The first place we send them is to Parkhurst products. Ed Harris didn't hurt the popularity of Parkhurst berets when he wore one as the director in the movie "The Truman Show", either. Enjoy looking over this line of hats worn by both men and women.
