I didn't realize that this was a new(ish) thing. When you buy a beret at clothing and sales, they are shapeless and fuzzy as hell. We are required to shave and shape them now. It actually takes about a whole day for the entire process.
There are about 100 shops around fort Bragg that sell pre-shaved and shaped berets for about $30, which almost anyone is more than happy to pay to save the ass-pain of doing it yourself.
