Who designs your artwork?
Currently all of the designs are done "in-house" by the same guy that patterns the fezzes,engineers the embroideries, designs the graphics for this web site, types the run-on sentences and answers hypothetical questions in the third person. We occasionally do collaborations with other artists that we meet along the way.
Why should I buy a Fez-o-rama fez?
We take our fezzes very seriously. These are not your usual tourist fez. They are designed for style and comfort and after you have tried one on you will know the difference. Each Fez-o-rama fez goes through 26 quality checks before it gets shipped - 26 - ye gads! How many quality checks does your morning nonfat-venti-latte-with-two-splenda go through? huh?
We use velvet for our fezzes - NOT FELT - which makes our fezzes better. Period. Deal with it, and no - we won't use felt... get over it. You'll want to read about the latest Mark VI Fez - and its many improvements. Inside each of the Fez-o-rama fezzes are quilted linings - not cardboard - meaning you can crush/fold/pack your fez knowing that it will pop back into shape with minimal fuss. (just take care of that tassel!) And, speaking of tassels - each Fez-o-rama fez comes with a tassel cord lock so you can adjust the tassel length to suit your needs. (just be careful when the head-twirling gets overly enthusiastic)
Our fezzes come in three sizes: 'Low', 'Tall', and 'Venti' - however, only the Low and Tall are available via the website. (The Venti is a current experiment and not ready for general consumption) The Low fez is about 4 1/2" in height; while the Tall is closer to 6".
Can I get a fez with my favorite band/sports team/soft drink/corporate logo...?
All custom orders would require a minimum order as well as actual ownership of the artwork. We can not, and will not reproduce copyrighted artwork without written permission of the Copyright owner. We value the creative endeavors of others and would not, and do not want to exploit their work. If you are curious about a custom fez, please read our 'Custom Fez' page before writing us... almost all of your questions can be answered there.
Can I get a blank fez with no embroidery on it?
Our fezzes are handmade in small batches and the embroidery is done before the fez is assembled. We do not have a stock of blank fezzes just sitting around waiting for decoration. The designs are an important part of our fezzes and frankly, blank fezzes just don't excite us very much. We would rather focus our limited time on the creative stuff. Perhaps we will offer blank fezzes when we grow into a massive fez making factory, but that may be some time off.
Why do you reserve the right to refuse designs?
The creativity of our products is our biggest motivator. If we find the concept too mundane or personally disagreeable we will likely reject it. We respect others' creativity and enjoy collaborating on designs, but if the concept doesn't inspire us - we most likely won't enjoy the process... and enjoying the process is very important to us.
Do you ship fezzes around the world??
YES! Current shipping times (business days) based on recent orders:
Australia - 5-21 days
If you are wondering why we are only using the slightly more expensive international shipping methods - well, we've recently been made aware that there are some unsavory types out there that really enjoy our fezzes - just like you do... and they've been intercepting our delivery llamas. The new transport methods protect us, and you, in case of loss.
note: Customs/Duty/Import fees may apply - those we know of include: UK, Austria, Thailand, and Germany. Customs will either send out a note, or hold the fez shipment until you're contacted. Still need answers? Send us an Email
