Regarding the shako issue as bigcity pointed out, it does add to the Execution score. The exposure to error and degree of difficulty rises if using a shako. I used to do palm spins with a bearskin on, so I'm sure your friend can do some overhead stuff as well with the headgear Riordan wears.

From a showmanship standpoint the beret doesn't offer as much as the shako. Especially if the rest of the band is in shako's. Remember the DM's first responsibility is to the band. They are a part of the showmanship score up here. And yes, a good DM routine adds to the score but so does the look. Just my to cents again. :)

I have 5 pair of hand gloves. I just love these gloves. Amazon products are really fantastic. I have found an article about these gloves that helped me much to choose the best gloves. I think this article will help you. Here is the article http://bestproducts-4u.com/best-workout-gloves/
