High Profile Fez - 1 color on Burgundy Velvet

After a decade of making the Sons of the Desert fez we are finally retiring it from Current production, but fear not we will be making it occasionally available as "made to order" as part of our Fez of the Week offerings.

If you want to be notified when that happens, be sure to sign up for our Newsletter.

If your Tent is interested in placing a group order feel free to contact us anytime.

Our Sons of the Desert fez, officially approved by the Sons of the Desert organization!

The design is Jason's artistic look at bringing the 1933 design into the 1940's... and beyond. So, grab your fez and sash, watch out for any wallets on the floor, and enjoy the show!
"... And no one has ever broken this Oath!" These words ring out as Stan and Ollie finish their meeting at the Oasis of the Sons of the Desert - an oath that soon leads the duo to hi-jinks and mischief. The Laurel and Hardy 1933 feature film Sons of the Desert is still funny today and rings its truthful message to us all - if you see the news that you were supposed to be on a sinking ship - read the rest of the article!!!

We are featuring a tall red-wavy velvet fez, with a one-color solid embroidery, and while you will have your choice of tassel color - we think the gold tassel suits it just fine. This fez has the licensing approval of the Sons of the Desert Organization and we've added that as an accompanying tag on the inner quilted lining.

For tassel colors we recommend Gold, or Black.

This fez features an Antique Brass tassel-grommet and is pictured with a Gold tassel.

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.

Tassel Colors

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.

Optional Fez Vents

Our fezzes can either be shipped

  • Domestic USPS Priority flat-pack - Single Fez orders can be folded and packed into a small box. The fez will need some time to relax and perhaps a light steaming before wearing.
  • UPS - one or more fezzes can be stacked and shipped in a single box, arriving ready to wear.

Note: If you are wondering why we are only using the slightly more expensive international shipping methods – well, we’ve been made aware that there are some unsavory types out there that really enjoy our fezzes – just like you do… and they have on occasion, intercepted our delivery llamas. The new transport methods protect us, and you, in case of loss.

Bigger note:
VAT/Customs/Duty/Import fees may apply – those we know of include: UK, Austria, Thailand, and Germany. Your Customs House/Post will either send out a note, or hold the fez shipment until you’re contacted.

The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of their local government. Orders shipped may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by local country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient. Fez-o-rama has no control over these charges.

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?
