all sizes, audiophile, black, dieselpunk, Fez of the Week, low profile, steampunk, vacuum tube, wavy -

It’s the audiophile’s thinking cap! The perfect fez for those evenings spent relaxing at home listening vintage radio programs as you bask in the warm glow emanating from an antique radio while sipping a nice single malt… or streaming online music while you work late, under the sterile glow of florescent lights, while guzzling stale coffee. Look, what I’m saying is whatever your situation, it can only be improved by wearing a fez. This week’s fez is a design that has been picking at the back of my brain for years. The vacuum tube was one of the earliest requests...

clockwork, Fez of the Week, leatheresque, steampunk, tall -

This week’s fez is a test of a new fabric we found recently. This synthetic “leather” is actually created in a similar fashion to our velvet but this has a waxed finish that creates the worn leather look you see here. We decided to test out the small bit of fabric we have by creating this variant of our classic Clockwork Fez. This photo also features one of our newest tassel colors that will be added to our site in the near future. We are working on securing more of this style of fabric and we have a few more...

Just in time for that last minute shopping! Our Clockwork design returns for a third round on yet another type of velvet. This time we have a soft brown velvet with a pebbled texture that makes for one comfy fez. This is also the first of the Clockworks to be featured on our new Mark VI fez design. The key difference between the MK V and the VI is the new addition of an antique copper tassel grommet. I plan to do a full write up on the new improvements in a future post. For now all you need to...

blue, Fez of the Week, slate blue, steampunk, tall -

This week's fez is one that has been requested for a long time. I remember it first came up as part of a larger discussion with fans of the comic Girl Genius - a great online "gas-lamp fantasy" comic. Well we get a lot of requests to do fezzes with a specific piece of art on them and unless we have permission I am loathe to capitalize on another artist's endeavors so I avoided the topic of a trilobite fez for some time.Then as I was perusing the directory of vendors at Comic Con this year, I noticed that Studio...

all sizes, available, gear, mahogany, Production, steampunk, tall -

Another one of our Fez of the Week experiments returns as a Limited Edition Fez! I was lucky enough to find a few yards of this beautiful mahogany velvet and immediately knew what I needed to do with it. We've made 22 of these and we have enough fabric for maybe a dozen more so act quickly, I don't know how long they will be around. The gears are my take on the proverbial "thinking cap." Sure, I got the old light bulb suggestion numerous time but after dwelling on how I would do a glowing light bulb in thread...
