[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
Mohair berets is in the present-day Poland a contemptuous political epithet promoted by the daily Gazeta Wyborcza and used to describe religious, usually elderly people of traditionalist, politically often right-wing, views, adhered to the Catholic Radio Maryja and its charismatic director Father Tadeusz Rydzyk.

This group of people is often regarded as an important factor in the 2005 parliamentary and presidential elections in Poland, contributing to the defeat of both the liberal and the ex-communist parties and candidates.

The epithet arised from the cheap head covering — berets made out of wool that imitates mohair — worn often by elderly women in Poland.

Czolem Christopher,
Niestety jest niewielu ludzi na swiecie , ktorzy takie cos zrozumieja oprocz naturalnie Polakow . Piekne ujecie tych klasykow mody polskiej, tych wysztrykowanych beretek z tego luksusowego kiedys i nie do zdobycia oprocz pewexsow towaru.
Szlak by to trafil , ze na swiecie sa takie roznice w mentalnosci, a szczegolnie w tym "F-ieeeee".
Pozdrawiam Cezary

Priceless shot, Christopher ! And a very informative note too.

Ujęcie bardzo ładne, jeszcze ta chorągiewka z przodu...
