While some people obsess about a perceived Islamisation of the west, Lord Bassington-Bassington tends to take a more relaxed stance, focusing on the advantages of being lightly enriched by Muslims.
And a few days ago, His Lordship decided to Islamise his head by ordering his first fez hat. Like any piece of clothing worth owning it has a rich and conflicting history, and we at the Chronicles would like to point our readers’ attention to this interesting treatise on the matter.
As this picture by the remarkable artist Shag clearly shows, the fez is an indispensable part of proper nightlife. But it is also possible to wear a fez in a variety of ways, as demonstrated by this auxiliary member of Slovenian Industrial group Laibach.
In fact, His Lordship can't really think of any outfit that doesn't work with a fez. This will be an interesting autumn indeed.
