The beret is almost exactly the same colour as a Charles Ingram cropped velvet jacket I have, shown in the third photo. It's also almost the same as a pair of Moroccan trousers I own. I was wearing the beret, jacket and trousers while shopping, when I heard a voice outside: "Oh my God. He's dressed like a Europe flag!" It was a student from Italy, talking to his friend. He asked me "Is that a European hat?", and when I said yes, he said "Thank you!" I found it rather sweet.
In my photo, the bEUret is resting on a copy of the Sunday Sport. I wanted some Brexit news showing — there was bound to be some — and the Sport's journalism seems appropriate to the times. This is the paper that once reported a German World-War-II bomber being found on the Moon.
