It never occurred to her that those people in turbans and fezzes were human.
The hillside became a perfect storm of fezzes; the tide of spectators rose till its waves touched the housetops.
The dark faces under the fezzes were changed by the fervor of battle; the bared teeth shone out beside the locks of the rifles.
Turbans and chimney-pots salaam to each other, and fezzes nod to straw hats and wide-awakes.
They buried their identities under darkened hair, false moustaches, fezzes, and forged vecikas.
1802, from French fez, from Turkish fes, probably ultimately from Fez, the city in Morocco, where this type of tasseled cap was principally made.
