black, Duck Soup, Fez of the Week, Groucho, Marx, retro, tall -

Once again it is time to turn to our annual tradition of marking the changing of the calendar year by watching the entire Marx Brothers' oeuvre, in order, starting December 31st and running until we're done. The point of doing this is to end the year the way we began it: laughing and celebrating my favorite classic-comedy team. To coincide with our movie marathon, each year we open up orders for a special tribute to Groucho and the boys, the Freedonian Fez. Inspired by the fantastic film Duck Soup, the Freedonian features the great seal of Freedonia emblazoned on our...

black, fez, gaming, king, low, Production, retro -

Our long gestating playing-card themed design is finally available on the web site. The Suicide King Fez is our take on the classic self-skewering king of hearts imagery. I first teased the concept sketch for this over a year and a half ago and it has taken me this long to get this into thread. The challenge with this design was the amount of small detailed patterns traditionally found in playing card design. I also had a good time working with a mostly primary color palette. I wasn't sure that I would be able to capture the same mood found in...

black, Chapeau, fez, pirate, Production, skull -

Our Crossbones design returns in an oft-requested black velvet version! Our original Crossbones Fez and Chapeau were consistently two of our most popular styles at the cons over the last year and a half. That of course didn't stop us from getting numerous requests to produce it on black velvet. Due to the limited space we have to carry and show fezzes at the cons, it wasn't possible to stock up on multiple color variations of a single design. So as the original red velvet version sails off into the horizon, this new black version is ready to take its place. The...

black, glow in the dark, goat, horror, low profile, Production -

Live life deliciously in this cheerful Capra Aegagrus themed fez! Back in 2015 we added the Yule Goat Fez to our ever-evolving holiday collection of designs. The Yule goat had a tenuous balance of creepy and cute, and I pretty much knew immediately that I was going to have to create a non-holiday version to wear for the other ten months of the year. Then at the beginning of 2016 we saw the fantastic film The Witch that happened to feature a rather creepy goat named Black Phillip. Inspiration had clearly struck and the Black Goat Fez made its début at Emerald City Comicon...
