One of our past designs that got a lot of love and many requests for a re-visit was our original sugar skull themed fez. Now as promised and just in time for your Day of the Dead celebrations we have the Calavera Fez 2.0
We have a bit of an obsession with skulls around here, both for their historic symbolism and their organic mechanical beauty, so it was only a matter of time before we returned to one of the most culturally – and artistically – significant uses of skulls in our world. Our Calavera features a decorated skull inspired by the traditional art of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos celebration.
This fez features a Black Chrome tassel-grommet and is pictured with a Red tassel and the optional Black Chrome vents.
Our fezzes are sized differently than traditional brimmed hats. 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. Our fezzes are made in half-inch increments so find your head measurement and round up to the half inch. Don’t round down. Don’t pull the cord too tight. While the fezzes may stretch a bit you don’t want to cut off the flow of blood to your scalp… unless you are in to that sort of thing.

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.
We can also go ‘outside’ the norm when it comes to making either extreme size fez – from XXXS to 7XL. However, these can be done only for current production designs, and we do need a tad bit of lead time. Send us an email and we’ll see what we can do.
Optional Fez Vents
Optional mesh vents can be added to your fez at the time of purchase. Unfortunately due to changes in the store’s code we have had to separate the vents into their own product. Simply add the fez of your choice to the cart then go to the vents page and add those to the cart as a separate item. Vents are sold in pairs so buying 2 sets will get you 4 vents on the fez. If ordering multiple fezzes with vents, please use the comment form at check-out to tell us which vents go to which fez.
Add alternate tassel colors to match your mood or grab a back-up in case your tassel meets an early demise.
Tame that tassel and keep it out of your eyes with one of these stylish Tassel Pins.
