The Year of the Monkey
For anyone that has been following our antics over the years it has become pretty clear that we have a bit of an obsession with putting primates on our fezzes. One of the first fez designs we created was a monkey design. We kind of drifted away from our simian muses for a bit, 2015 didn't get a new monkey fez at all. That isn't to say we didn't come up with any ideas, we just didn't get around to them. 2016 is going to change that.
The Year of the Monkey
Anyone familiar with the Chinese zodiac (or with internet access) knows that February 2016 starts the year of the monkey and what better time to bring our focus back to our genetic cousins. So let's start with the new
The Manic Monkey Fez
First up we have this new Low-Profile fez featuring an overly caffeinated capuchin wearing a fez with his spiritual totem, the coffee bean.
This is the perfect fez to don when you need that extra little boost from the world's most popular psychoactive substance. Wear it to your local coffee bar to let them know you mean business.
This style is already in production and available on our website. We also plan to bring this one out to some of our shows over the year.
The Mandrill Fez
Next we have our classic tall black velvet fez featuring a majestic mandrill in all of his full-color glory.
This beguiling baboon add a bit of class to any ensemble, just remember that smiling is a display of aggression. Approach with caution.
We are fully stocked up on this guy and plan to continue to keep him in production throughout 2016. Look for him to join us at our shows starting next month!
