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!

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!

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!
