Project Cubbins: Hat 322 - By George He's Wearing Your Hat Edition

Day 322 / Hat 322: Blue and white woven fedora with pleated floral fabric (a jacquard, I believe) hatband detail photographed at the 11th Annual John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit this afternoon in West Hollywood.

Graciously loaned to the Project by stylist, "Fashion Police" co-host and author of the recently published book "Glamour by George," George Kotsiopoulos (with me -- sans headgear -- in the above photo).

"It's from Zara," George told me of its provenance. A cursory search of the Zara website turned up this Floral Hat with Band, which describes the composition of the hat as "100% paper," and the embellishment (we're guessing that's the hatband part) as "100% cotton."

GK was a good sport for loaning his lid so a sincere thank you along with a stylish tip o' the hat for his contribution.

PC 321: T for Tiara
PC 319: Claiborne Cowboy

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
