A long overdue fezzy update!

Well hello there, intrepid reader! It’s been a while since we’ve updated the fez museum, but we’ve picked up a few interesting new pieces that we wanted to share with you.

First, stop over to the Ladies Shrine organizations page where we’ve added a basic Shrine Guild member’s fez. Passing from that, we find the Boo Hum Dit Dum added to the occupational groups section. This organization was hard to track down and we’d love to know more about it! Lastly, we’ve added a whole new exhibit on the Knights of Peter Claver, a traditionally African-American lay Catholic fraternal order.

Thanks for checking back and your support of sharing fraternal history!

A Hot Fez Update

plateofezzesToday is one of the hottest days of the summer in the Northeast. This gave us the needed to time to spend a day in air conditioning and updating the Museum! We’re happy to bring you three updates, all in some smaller categories.

We start with a Fraternal Order of Eagles fez, hailing from Spokane Aerie No. 2. It’s a more recent piece, but comes from a group not known for wearing fezzes, making it a unique addition.

Next up, we have a “small” addition to the collection in the form of an Abadan Grotto Ladies Auxiliary fez. This hat is positively tiny, perfect for the ladies that probably wore it.

Last up is a new Independent Order of Odd Fellows Encampment fez. This new addition is embroired in multiple colors and is quite old, so check it out!

We hope that you enjoy this round of updates. As always, we continue to look for additions to the collection to bring to you!

We come to you today with no less than 6 new fezzes in the museum!

  • We’ve added a new fez to the Charitable Groups section, detailing a little known African American Fraternal body call the Lily White Security Benevolent Association.
  • The Maccabees, one of the most well known fraternal bodies of the 20th Century weren’t known for wearing fezzes, but, thanks to a donation, we have one!
  • The Sons of the Desert, deveoted to comedians Laurel and Hardy, are a great fez wearing social body for fans.
  • Recently revived, we bring you a fez from the Noble Order of Muscovites.
  • The Ladies of the Orient are on the move as well, with two new additions to this section.

We thank you for your visit and look forward to bringing you images of more fine fraternal millinery!

February Fez Update

funny-fun-lol-cats-wearing-fez-pics-images-photos-pictures-bajiroo-6Things have been pretty quiet around the Fez Museum as of late, but we have been picking up pieces as time and money allow.

This update sees three new fezzes in our Odd Fellows area, covering the Imperial Order of Muscovites, the Pilgrim Knights of Oriental Splendor, and the Ladies of the Orient.

We’ve also added two fezzes to our Masonic related organizations collection, with a Past Monarch’s fez from Avalon Grotto and a member’s fez from Osiris Shriners.

Enjoy the update and be sure to check back for more!

Well then, an update!

Mayor richard daley in fezWhile we had planned to do an update much sooner, rather than the current state of later, we’ve finally added some new pieces to the collection worth noting.

A rare find indeed, we’ve added a Supreme Treasurer’s fez to our AHEPA exihibit. Following that, check out the new Kolo Sanctorum in our AMOS area. Lastly, we wrap up this update with a Yedz fez over in our Grotto area.

As always, we continue our search for new and unique fezzes, so feel free to contact us if you have something strange that you are looking to part with!
