The name of fez comes from the city of Fes, Morocco, where it became fash­ion­able among An­dalu­sian Arabs in the 17th century. The fez got widely popular in the Ottoman Empire after 1829, when Sultan Mahmud II ordered his civil of­fi­cials to wear the plain fez, and also banned the wearing of turbans.
