Hello alexshor-ga,

I found the same source as cdom-ga that identified the Parkhurst beret
as the one worn by Ed Harris in The Truman Show. This hat is
manufactured by a Canadian company. Dorothea Knitting Mills Ltd. is
also known as Parkhurst Knitwear and sells its products through many
distributors online and in shops in the US and internationally.

I?ve included a selection of these stores for you so that you can
choose whichever best meets your needs. There is some variation in the
colors available in each and in the price of the product and the
shipping charges.

Have fun with your beret.

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.
