Fez Venting

Add some venting to your fez.

The Flying Scarab Fez features an ornately decorated scarab with spread wings rendered in bright jewel-tone threads on a low-profile black velvet fez.

I have a bit of an obsession with wings and flying designs, as you can see with many of my past designs, but up until this point I had yet to tackle insect wings. While doing research on traditional Egyptian Scarab designs I just couldn’t get the beauty of actual scarab wings out of my head. I decided to take the beetle concept into a more physical direction and shift the design inspiration to the Victorian era with their infatuation with bug themes.

This fez features a Black Chrome tassel-grommet and is pictured with a Purple tassel.
We recommend the optional Black Chrome vents.

IMPORTANT
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.

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|

RIGHT                                WRONG

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.

Extra Tassels
Add alternate tassel colors to match your mood or grab a back-up in case your tassel meets an early demise.
