Fez - Burgundy Wool Felt

Item: 003688


Holy smokes, our Red Fez is a fabulous addition to your Victorian wardrobe. Gentlemen from the late 1800s found it fashionable to adopt this type of centuries-old Greek and more modern Turkish headwear while lounging at home or a resort. The practice of donning a fez along with perhaps a smoking jacket or tunic during Victorian times was called wearing ‘mufti,’ loosely translated in Arabic as ‘regular clothes. It was a popular practice among British Army Officers.

This particular fez is fashioned from soft 100-percent wool felt with a flexible body for comfortable fit. Measures 6 in. high and the slightly conical shape flares to 7.5 in diameter at the base. Wear unadorned or modify as you see fit with tassels, trim and other embellishments.

Imported. Unlined. One size fits most up to men's XL/7.5 hats.

Loving my fez
I received my fez last week and have enjoyed wearing around the house in the evenings. It has provoked comments from friends, and that was the point.

Fez - Burgundy Wool Felt
The fez was a big hit. My wife and I gifted it to a 15-year-old friend who is a Doctor Who fan. She actually went into a happy dance. The product is good quality and a great value. Thank you.

Whooo-vian paradise!
My husband has been kidding about getting a fez for quite some time, but the ones I'd found so far were cheap trash costume type hats. This FEZ is the real deal! The quality and the fit are great and we are so pleased. Even the finish and the details are high quality and lovely felt feel. He's now taken to wearing it around the house and during Dr. Who fests. I would definitely buy this again and am thinking about buying another .....for me this time! thank you!

Everything I Could Want
An excellent, high quality fez at a very responsible price. When I bought this my only intention was to use it as a leisure hat with maybe occasional dress use. This immediately become my defacto "around town" hat. I'm sure that I'll soon buy a few more; one for leisure wear, one for special occasions (especially locations or evenrs that a little near-East flair would fit well), mabye a couple more for general use, ;-) To any buying one, a few suggestions: 1) Don't always wear it with the "back" (side with the tag) to the back. Randomly rotate it 90° every so often. Because of the soft nature of the fez, the shape will warp some if resting against things. This will help undo that. 2) If you wear it tight and/or lower on the head, be prepared for the bottom to stretch and become a bit wider. It still fits fine and, most importantly, looks fine (the difference is hardly noticeable unless you are really looking for it), but if you want to keep the cone tight you may wish to keep this in mind. 3) If your first impulse (even before it arrives) is to start looking for a tassel or two to adorn the top (as was with me); truly consider not doing so. The nub on top is just about perfect by itself, I think. Give some thought before you tassel. As always with the Historical Emporium, this is a wonderful, high quality touch of history that is perfect for the modern world. I have never yet been disappointed with their products or service.

Fez - Burgundy Wool. Felt
This is a well made, if possible, understated Fez. The quality, fit, and feel of the wool is thick and sensual. This is not your cheap, costume Fez hat you see at a party supply store as side of or in a box store. However, this Fez stands a bit tall on the head, but the height does compensates for this fez not having a tacky tassel.

Shades of Casablanca and eastern mystery and style, and if you're a "Who-vian", you can't resist this fez.

A FezWith Fizz
Great Fez. It is just perfect for period dressing in the "Turkish" fashion that was popular in the 1850s - 1880 in the US and the and UK. The Fez was worn as a reading and lounging hat by Fashionable Victorian Gentlemen and was popular with troops in the Civil War who adopted the "Zouave" look from French army units. The material of the Historical Emporium Fez is perfect. It is the right thickness and is not as "fussy" as the Fez worn by Shriners (which tend to be heavier material and sometimes lined with a leather sweatband.) The small tassel on the crown is a period correct rolled strip of the body fabric. The shape is perfect for a period look as it is tall enough to add some gravitas to your outfit and also has a domed crown with is also period correct. A flatter crown usually depicts a more Egyptian look rather than Turkish. I love my Fez and it will serve me well in the Wild West entertaining I do. I think it will add just the right look to my Magic act!

Burgundy Wool Felt Fez
I purchased the Fez as a gift. The gentleman recipient of this gift had remarked that all his long life he had wanted a Fez. The Fez I purchased fits him perfectly, looks great and keeps his head warm. When he discovered the contents of his gift, his smile was pure gold. Oh, and wearing it helps him win at Scrabble!
