Portuguese Boys' Headwear: Berets

Figure 1.--Here we have two little Portuguese brothers, Alvaro and Carlos Antunes. It was taken in Valado dos Frades about 1950. They wear maztching black berets and flannel shirts.

We do note some boys wearing berets. We are not sure how common this was or the chronological trends. As in Spain, the Portuguese term is boina. We also see Borla being used. It does not seem to be a child's garment as we see men, but not women wearing them. The ones we have noted are black. This seems to be a Basque fashion influence. We do not know if Portuguesr berets were thus worn regionally, more in the north near the Basque country. Some Portuguese military units wore berets as part of their uniforms.
