During the ending credits for The Ren & Stimpy Show both are seen wearing Fezzes.

In the Austin Powers movie series, evil henchman Mustafa (played by Will Ferrell) wears a fez and sunglasses.

In the video-game Team Fortress 2, the Spy class can wear an item called a "Familiar Fez" (actually a combination of a fez and sunglasses, apparently a reference to Mustafa from Austin Powers)

In the Doctor Who episode "The Big Bang", the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith dons a fez, proclaiming that "I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool." It is then blown up by River Song. He and a young Kazran Sardick also wear fezzes in "A Christmas Carol". The Doctor includes a fez in his list of things he needs to help President Nixon in "The Impossible Astronaut". Even earlier in Doctor Who the Seventh Doctor wore a fez briefly in the serial "Silver Nemesis"

The shipping rates kinda kill this deal... $10.95 ground shipping?!

Check out was a pain, required you to say when you needed them by ( even though it still gave a shipping option in a later menu ) and also a when the performance date is. After I worked my way thru the menu, it finally told me the shipping for my 2 fez were going to be 11 bucks. Bit high for my blood.

But Fezes are cool !

@magiccheese: It's basically a theatre supply store, hence some of the quirks about delivery needs.

Muslims slew thousands of Christians and rejoiced in their victory by gathering their blood in their white hats (fez). Ever since then, they wear red fezes. Now that is the meaning of their red fez.

@inkycatz: so cool, right up until the point River blasts it. /sigh. One would think the perks of time travel would be immediately going and getting another one.

It's too red...needs to be a bit more of a maroon red.

Now if only River Song had blown up Matt Smith instead, so we could get someone in the role with a little talent, instead of a jug-eared, Frankenstein's monster-jawed idiot.

That said.. definitely a cheap fez. Too bright a red, no embroidery, and from the pics on the site, looks like the felt (if it's even felt at all) is paper-thin. Tassel is barely thicker than string, and is just yellow instead of gold.
Pass on this one and pick up one that has some class, if you're one of the few people who can rock a fez and do it right.

Before 1826, the fez had been a Greek Christian fashion, worn in the Aegean Islands.[2] This is what made it a symbol of religion and modernity.[3] It was also found in the Maghreb and was known by the city of its own name Fez. The production of the headgear was developed to high fashionable heights by Jewish tailors with a special style of it in Tunis by the XVII century when fashions in Europe already changed in less traditional ways. The artisans involved in their making were the most selective members of the cities Souq.

Remember that this is a Theatre site. These are props and costumes, meant to be cheap, modifiable, and only worn occasionally on stage. In other words, meant to really only look good at a distance under a lot of lights.

All that being said, if all you want is a costume item. Halloween, costume party, reenactment, or "Doctor Who" veiwing party... Go for it. If you want to wear this on a daily basis (no comment), I would suggest a hat retailer for something more sturdy.
