Day 475 / Hat 475: Forest green buckle back baseball style cap with a crouching yellow, black and white tiger logo on back and the ords: "Davidoff Columbus Circle" on back in yellow embroidery. Interior label reads: "Alternative Apparel, 100% cotton, made in China."
Loaned t the Project by Josie Witte, it was among those in a bag awaiting my return home from New York City. Which is ironic considering that, based on my sleuthing, it references a cigar club/store/lounge Davidoff of Geneva that is located in the shops at Columbus Circle -- right around where I was stomping my feet and hanging my many hats for the run of New York Fashion Week.
What's a tiger got to do with cigar bars? It certainly makes one paws. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) I couldn't find any information about that in my cursory search of the interwebs, but I did find a limited-edition Davidoff cigar humidor with a laser-etched tiger on the lid that refers to: "[t]he chosen image of the Tiger -- the symbol of strength and grace ..." So there's that.
Is it just me or does the Smokin' Tigers sound like the perfect name for a Triple A baseball team made up of cigar aficionados that tries to defect to Cuba in a fictitious Garry Marshall movie from the '80s? (Yeah, it's probably just me.)
At any rate, the hat-tip to Josie for the smokin' lid.

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