Virtual Museum of Fezology
As Grandpa Barney said in the movie Peggy Sue Got Married, "It wouldn't be a lodge without hats."
Some may prefer the jaunty trilby, some the humble homburg, and others the noble fedora, but Brother Seth Andrews in Pennsylvania loves fezzes. He is obsessed with all things fez. He is the penultimate fraternal fez fanatic. Others may ridicule the tassel-festooned felt flower pot as a sartorial catastrophe, but not Seth.
In his capacity working for DeMolay in Pennsylvania, he has even designed a limited edition DeMolay fez as a fund raiser, spreading his fuzzy fez fetish to another generation.
Now he has turned his personal collection into an online virtual museum.
Drop in and visit the Virtual Museum of Fezology.
