Fez of the Week no.158 ~ Pre-order thru October 8th 2018
4 colors on Black Velvet
This updated version of our classic Bat Chapeau made its surprise debut at Son of Monsterpalooza and is now back for a special Fez of the Week - Double Feature!

The one mammal that dares to break the bonds of gravity, a symbol of death and rebirth, and universally accepted measurement device for the level of mental health of belfries the world over; is now gracing the front of this fine velvet fez.

Wear one the next time you spend the night eating your weight in flying insects.

Are you a wealthy orphan that spends their nights dispensing vigilante justice in a vain attempt to avenge the deaths of your parents while endangering those around you by inspiring the local criminally insane to dress up in themed attire and cause large amounts of collateral damage? Than have we got a fez for you!

Actually, even if you aren't some costumed nut-job with a chirotophobia fetish you might be interested in our new Bat Fez. This design is part of the natural progression of our ongoing wing obsession and features a New World leaf-nosed bat rendered in rich copper and browns with a pale purple outline to create just a touch of Halloween creepiness.

It's the perfect thing to wear on a late morning while roosting in your man-cave, hollow tree or rural underpass.

This Fez of the Week design is only available thru October 8th 2018.
Please allow extra time for production before shipping.

For tassel colors we recommend Purple or Copper.

This chapeau features an Antique Copper tassel-grommet and is pictured with a Purple tassel.
Important As the chapeau style fits higher on one's head, the sizing is different than that of our fezzes. Men tend to wear them lower and should go with the larger size. Some women prefer to wear them with hairpins or clips and can option for the smaller size. Please double-check your size before ordering.
More info can be found on the Size tab.

We can also go ‘outside’ the norm when it comes to making either extreme size fez – from XXXS to 7XL.  However, these can be done only for current production designs, and we do need a tad bit of lead time.  Send us an email and we’ll see what we can do.

Each fez or chapeau comes with one 6 inch tassel included, the option to purchase a second tassel if desired, and extra tassels can be purchased separately on their own. Tassels are easily removed and replaced. We recommend removing tassels before cleaning your fez. Tassels are susceptible to high humidity and have very poor defenses when attacked by cats.

Optional Fez Vents

Need to let off a little steam? Optional mesh vents can be added to the top of your fez at the time of purchase. Vents are sold in pairs, so buying 2 sets will get you 4 vents on the fez (chapeaus can only fit one pair of vents). Vents come in 3 finishes and we will install the one that matches the tassel grommet already installed on the fez. Vents cannot be removed and any hat customized with vents will not be eligible for a full refund if returned.

Good News Everyone…

Now then – you may be asking yourself, “Self – I wonder what happens if I measured, ordered, my fez arrives via the shipping llama… and it doesn’t fit!”  Well – look in the mirror…  and blame them. Yep – your evil other-dimensional twin did it!

If after all the careful re-measurements, the thoughtful contemplation, and the dog stops laughing…  feel free to contact us and let us know.  Our exchange policy is pretty liberal as long as the design is ‘current’ we should be able to exchange for your proper size within 90 days of purchase. This is all based on the fact that you tried on the fez and didn’t wear it out on the town or to a bachelor party.(read as: not worn)

Exchanging the fez then continues by shipping it back to us at our Fez-o-rama address – the same that’s on the shipping box, which you could use as well. (just fold the flaps the other way to hide our label and *poof* instant box!)  Once we receive the fez, we’ll send it through to Inspector 23, (Inspector 12 retired in 2015) and they will give it the once over.  We will then ship the replacement as soon as humanly possible. 

For fez accessories, the same applies - if an 'oops' occurs, we will work with you to remedy the situation.

If the mistake is ours we will gladly pay the shipping costs, as we only like insanely happy customers, however; if we crossed our ‘t’s and dotted our lower case ‘j’s – the exchange shipping cost will be your (the customer’s) responsibility.  Sound fair?
