Project Cubbins: Hat 280 - Derby on the Porch Edition

Day 280 / Hat 280: Black, 100% wool felt derby hat by Scala. Detail includes red feather in the hatband. I took this snap on the fly this afternoon as I was headed to the office to focus on covering a slightly different kind of derby -- the Academy Awards red carpet.

A loaner to the Project from The Headwear Association's sample closet.

By the way, Today is the 110th birthday of Theodor Seuss Giesel, (aka Dr. Seuss) so today's hat-tip goes to the hat-loving author/illustrator/man-cave-dweller. 

PC 279: Gull Skull
PC 278: Spago Amigo
PC 277: Lax Attitude

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!
