Project Cubbins: Hat Seventeen

Day Seventeen / Hat Seventeen:  Red felt fez from Fez, Morocco, procured in the cap's namesake city by one Ms. Rose Apodaca, a dear friend and former co-worker (and the R in the A+R Store) who realized early on my love of a good chapeau.

This has to be one of my all-time favorites, not only because it was my first fez (I have two) but because the fez is a key part of "Wives with Knives" my favorite Shag paintings of all time (you can see one of the fez-wearing, tongue-wagging fellows over my shoulder in the photo -- we have a print hanging in our kitchen).
