We’re not dead yet!

 It’s a been a while, fezzy friends – nearly a year in fact. But, the Fez Museum continues to plod along. We’ve been acquiring fewer pieces as time goes on, but we are still collecting. This is a long overdue update for sure and we should have some additional updates coming in the next several months as we catch up on our backlog of new acquisitions.

To start, we have a major update to the Religious Groups section, specifically several fezzes dealing with the Nuwabian movement. We came into a cache of fezzes from this group and we’re excited to share them with you, even if they come from a dubious piece of history.

Then, we’re happy to share a special, new fez to the collection – the curator’s own fez from the Dramatic Order of the Knights of Khorassan, the fun side branch of the Knights of Pythias.

As always, we thank you for your continued support and interest in our site!

Look, in the sky, a new fez!

Holy smokes! It’s been a while since we’ve updated the Fez Museum. But, worry not! We’re still collecting fezzes as we find them and posting them here to sate your curiousity!

Today, we add four next pieces to the collection, across three different fraternal groups.

First up is a rare white Macabees fez. While it has some moth damage, it is in remarkable shape for an old piece. It’s also very tiny and may have been made for a child! Research into this fez continues.

Next is a very unique Order of Alhambra fez. The design is entirely embroidered in one color, making it distinct amongst the other pieces. Thank you to the seller who contacted us through this website!

Last, we add two Ancient Mystic Order of Samaritans Past Divisonal Monarchos fezzes (say that five times fast!) both are very rare and make excellent additions to our exhibit, so check them out!

Until next time, keep on fezzing!

Fall Fez Update

giantfezguyWe’re not dead yet! Really though, we’ve just been busy here at the Museum of Fezology with real life. Our collecting continues and remains active, with nearly 200 fezzes in the collection today (some of which aren’t even posted to this site!)

To remedy that, we’ve got four new updates for you to check out today. Let’s take a look!

We’ll start in the Odd Fellows Social Groups exhibit, where we’ve added an old Ufa Sanctorum fez. This is a nice piece from a very unstable time in the history of the organization, so it’s definitely worth checking out.

Next up is a Sciots Past Toparch fez from the 1950’s. While it’s not terribly old or different, it is a nice fez and bridges a time gap in our collection.

Then, we added an old Grotto fez from Cheliminar Sanctorum in Yakima, WA. It features what we fondly refer to as the “South Park Mokanna” on the front in metal.

Lastly, we have a completely new and altogether rare organization fez for the collection. We’ve got our mits on a Fraternal Order of Orioles fez over in the Animal Lodges exhibit. The Orioles have been around since the early 1900’s, but weren’t known to be fez wearers, making this a really unique piece.

Until next time fezmigos!

Good day loyal reader! We just wanted to take a moment and let you know that things are a bit slow here at the museum. We don’t have anything new to report at this time. So, instead, enjoy this silly fez based picture!

As soon as we have updates, we’ll be sure to post them!
