Project Cubbins; Hat 434 -- Visor and Paper Brolly Edition

Day 434 / Hat 434: Navy blue visor with adjustable velcro closure in back and multi-color crocodile embroidery on front. Additional detail includes embroidery on back that reads: "Lacoste" in white and interior label that reads: "100% cotton, made in China."

Borrowed from the Bride's headgear holdings, I added the yellow paper drink umbrella for a little extra flair as well as to commemorate last night's exceedingly rare August rain in Los Angeles.

In case you were wondering: Even though we've come to call Lacoste shirts "alligator shirts," the clothing label traces its roots to French tennis star Rene Lacoste whose on-court tenacity (and a joke about some crocodile skin luggage) earned him the nickname "Le Crocodile."

PC 234: Tschornado/Sharknado
PC 134: Flat Hats and Mermaids
A Year Ago Today in Project Cubbins

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
