Have you ever worn a fez? It’s quite uncommon here in the States, but in other parts of the world (particularly the Middle East) it can be seen from time to time. Researching quickly on Wikipedia, I learned that it was once the official male headgear of the Ottoman Empire, and is part of the traditional clothing of Cyprus — completely random facts, but ones that make it all the more interesting.
Walking in Harlem one day, I found a stand filled with incense, beaded jewelry and, hiding in the back, stacks of colorful fezzes. They were only $15 each, so I bought one. Mine is slightly discolored from sun exposure, and in hindsight I wish I got another color, but I think it’s pretty cool :)
