available, Chapeau, Fez of the Week, Production, Prototype -

10 years in the making and after much fussing and teasing, it is finally time to introduce our new hat style. Way back in the previous century I started making fezzes for my friends. That first Christmas it was 8 fezzes for the guys, many of whom I had known for well over a decade. As I continued to make a fez here and there as birthday gifts throughout the year I started getting asked if I was going to make fezzes for the girlfriends. Since I had already been making fezzes for the guys, I wanted to do something...

Chapeau, Fez of the Week, kanaloa, Prototype, Tiki Oasis -

Tiki Oasis Preview #8 Wait Chapeau? Yes, you read that correctly. We’re entering a whole new category of hat here. This cap is based on a hat I did way back in 1997 as part of my design thesis collection. While it was just an accessory it became one of my favorite details. Some of you may recognize it as the style of hat I used for the Cult of the Eye’s WOE Chapeau –hence the use of the sloppy French. After getting a number of requests to make some of these for public consumption I decided it was time...
