50 Most Legendary Hats Throughout History Che Guevara’s Beret

Che Guevara’s Beret

In what is perhaps one of the most effective images in the history of political propaganda, the handsome Argentine Marxist revolutionary wears a black military beret embroidered with a single red star. It was part of the standard uniform that he wore throughout his political career. Today, variations of this image can be bought on T-shirts and stickers, even with gorilla faces — surely that’s what the revolutionary had in mind when fighting for his causes.
