Project Cubbins: Hat 292 - Rando and a Ribbon Lid Edition

Day 292 / Hat 292: D.C. Shoes/ New Era  men's trucker hat with white mesh back, 100% black cotton front with red bill. Additional details include red horizontal ribbon strip across front edged in black and white horizontal stripes, D.C. logo embroidery and red contrast embroidery on eyelets.  

Based on my brief forensic scouring of the interwebs, this appears to be a Men's Rob Dyrdek Ribbon Trucker Hat, which is part of the Rob Dyrdek Teamworks Collection.

I poached this lid -- ever so briefly -- from the sizable cranium of one Nathan Walls (with me in the above photo) a spring-breaking college student from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

How did "Walls from the Ball" come to be in my kitchen on a Friday afternoon? Ah, that's a story you either know or don't want to know.

Did I mention dude man has a huge noggin? Look at how the hat is swimming on my own not-tiny pinhead.

At any rate, Walls gets the hat-tip for being a good sport. I'm told his penchant for headgear is legendary back at Ball State, so this documentary evidence should go a long way to cementing his legacy.

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!
