Project Cubbins: Hat 176 - Hey, Hey Leather Beret Edition

Day 176 / Hat 176: Black leather beret with black grosgrain fabric lining and adjustable cord detail. Interior tag reads: "Eric Javits Hats are Blocked and Trimmed by Hand."

This is another installment from the bountiful IS series and it reminds of what a bad-ass Guardian Angel might wear --  or someone at Greenwich Village poetry slam. All I need to do now is wrangle me a turtleneck and shave my beard into a Van Dyke.

PC 169: Ingrid's Name on the Brain
PC 156: Snakes on the Brain 

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

Got hats? If you loan 'em, you'll get e'm back safe and sound!
