Cairo fez maker pessimistic after revolution

“The fezzes’ glory days were long ago,” he told The Egyptian Gazette in an interview. “Tell me in God’s name, who wears them nowadays?” Sebai produces a fez every five minutes, even though he is well aware that the prospects for his products are dim, now that Egypt has broken away from its monarchic and dictatorial past. A military coup that ended the monarchy in 1952 also put an end to the fez as Egypt’s official headgear.
