Introducing the latest in our on-going series of Lovecraftian inspired designs: The Cthulhu Cthorps Chapeau!
For our fourth original Cthulhu design (not counting color/fabric variants) we wanted to go with a more Art Deco styled militarized look that would work well on both a chapeau and a fez. We also wanted to include the multiple eyes that were featured on HPL’s original sketch of the “Horror in Clay” that often get passed over in modern versions. The conservative pallet of neutral tones with the blood red contrast allows this design to strike a balance between casual and formal. Wear it with your favorite tuxedo or go for that relaxed but threatening look with combat boots and a cargo kilt.
The Cthulhu Cthorps – The Few. The Proud. The Insane.
This Fez-o-Chapeau features a Black Chrome tassel grommet and is pictured with a Red tassel.
Our Chapeaus are sized differently than our fezzes so it is best if you measure your head before ordering. The easiest way to measure your head is to wrap a measuring tape around your noggin just above your ears – with TWO fingers under the tape (both fingers should be against your temple). If you don’t have a fabric measuring tape simply wrap a ribbon, a bit of string, or a cat5 cable around your head, mark where it overlaps and then measure the distance. Don’t pull the cord too tight, your fingers will let you feel when that happens.

Most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask questions. You can email us or find us on the social networks.
Some have found the whole ‘finger’ part a tad confusing – as an interested fez customer recently wrote in – and he had a very clever way to clarify it:
(head)8| or (head)oo|
Where the ( ) is your head, and the | is the tape.
Add alternate tassel colors to match your mood or grab a back-up in case your tassel meets an early demise.
Optional Fez Vents
Chapeaus don’t typically get vents but there are cases where extreme environments might justify it. In that case we recommend only ordering a single set of vents. Be sure to use the comment field at check-out to indicate that you want the vents installed on the chapeau. This is especially important when ordering fezzes at the same time.
Tame that tassel and keep it out of your eyes with one of these stylish Tassel Pins.
