This is a special collaboration with our friend, the very talented illustrator Valentine Barker. We’ve been in love with Valentine’s illustrations for years and he has become one of our good con-friends. This year we asked him if he would like to collaborate on a special chapeau design to debut at Emerald City Comicon. It was a lot of fun capturing his illustration style in thread.
Only 25 of these limited edition chapeaus were made and each comes with a numbered edition pin and an illustration card signed by the artist.
This classy pin-up design is embroidered on our deep emerald green velvet and looks great with a copper, red, or white tassel.
This Fez-o-Chapeau features an Antique Copper tassel grommet and is pictured with a Copper 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.
We have turned off all back-order and made-to-order options as we prepare for our next 2 shows and work on launching the new site. Dismiss
