The leather band on the industries examples are thicker and wider than the other makers and tend to be a lot smother in all better made than all of the others being attached by 2 stitched lines all the way round . There are 3 lines of stitching which holds the leather band and internal stiffening material to the brim of the beret in place which is 1 more than the other makers also note the internal lose stitch is in fact a 4th line of machine stitching which is unique to this maker
1st , 2nd & 3rd pictures show the stitching and the leather internal patch
4th and 5th pictures show the difference in width and texture of the leather band which is finished in the lap over method .
