Project Cubbins: Hat 326 - Attitude Adjustment Bureau Edition

Day 326 / Hat 326: Khaki-colored basebeall-style cap with red embroidery on front that reads: "The Adjustment Bureau." Interior tag reads: "Authentic Head Shots by KC Caps," on one side and "made in Bangladesh" on the other.

Most likely this was originally a cast and crew gift (or a promotional freebie) related to the movie of the same name. I purchased it minutes ago from the Good Will store at 7919 Beverly Blvd. not far from Project Central, having identified the store earlier this morning as a potential source of headwear.

While There was a deep bench of hattery on hand, I picked this one nearly immediately because the movie whose name graces the front was a particularly hat-heavy one. (I did a q-and-a with the film's costume designer Kasia Walicka Maimone titled "The hierarchy of hats" back in 2011.)

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the hat is adjustable in the back.

PC 325: Tiny swashbuckler
PC 324: Priceless Pyramid
Return of the broad-brimmed hat

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 celebrated 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
