Project Cubbins: Hat 199 - The Hipster Before Christmas Edition

Day 199 / Hat 199: Black-and-white-striped woven fedora with black grosgrain hatband screen-printed with the smiling visage of Jack Skellington from "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas." Interior tags read: Disney Parks, Authentic, Original" and "100% straw, Made in China."

Another loan to the Project from the magical millinery holdings of Team Boucher, I'm not sure what amazes me more: the fact that is is just one of several  available options for an authentic Jack Skellington themed fedora (go ahead, search the interwebs, we'll wait) or the fact that the movie came out twenty years and two months ago.

Oh, and if anyone happens to own one of these Goorin Brothers Walter White Heisenberg pork pie hats, I'd love to borrow it for the Project.

So today's hat-tip goes to Team Boucher who just keeps bringin' it!


PC 198: Total Rykiel
PC 190: Makin' Census
PC 128: Skywalker Firefighter

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