Once again it is time to turn to our annual tradition of marking the changing of the calendar year by watching the entire Marx Brothers’ oeuvre, in order, starting December 31st and running until we’re done. The point of doing this is to end the year the way we began it: laughing and celebrating my favorite classic-comedy team.
To coincide with our movie marathon, each year we open up orders for a special tribute to Groucho and the boys, the Freedonian Fez. Inspired by the fantastic film Duck Soup, the Freedonian features the great seal of Freedonia emblazoned on our classic tall fez.
We’ve done a number of variations on this design over the years but after this horrifying ride 2016 gave us, I’ve decided to bring it back to the beginning and do the classic red, white, blue, and gold on black velvet that started it all many years ago.
The page is now up and these fezzes are available Made-to-Order through January 6th 2017. The first batch will be made this weekend while we watch the films and start shipping after the 2nd.
