Project Cubbins: Hat 303 - Croft & Barrow & Brittany & Me Edition
Day 303 / Hat 303: White, woven roll-up sun visor with 6 1/4-inch brim around three-quarters of the hat as well as white woven and grosgrain bow/Velcro closure detail. Interior tags read: "Croft & Barrow" and "spot clean only, made in China."
(Croft & Barrow, FYI, is currently an exclusive-to-Kohl's brand of casual contemporary clothes and accessories.)
Graciously loaned to the Project by Ms. Brittany Nowak (at right in the above photo -- wearing my beloved Borsalino from way back at PC 19) the production assistant on this morning's shoot at Two Rodeo for a future episode of "America's Secret Slang."
Which, of course, means Ms. Nowak is due today's hat-tip.
PC 302: Slash Topper
PC 301: Black Hills Bucket
PC 300: Three Heads and a Hand-Knit
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!
