Project Cubbins: Hat 312 - Basic Brown Burlapish Edition

Day 312 / Hat 312: Brown baseball-style cap with a slightly coarse weave reminiscent of burlap. Additional detail (and by that I mean the only additional detail of any kind on this simple, straightforward hat) is a single eyelet in each of the six panels that comprise the crown.

Interior tag reads: "Yupoong, cotton, one size fits all, made in Dominican Republic."

If I'm not mistaken (I'll go grubbing tomorrow to be sure) this represents the last hat from the incredibly bountiful Susan J. Tschorn Bag O' Hats (SJTBOH). A sincere hat-tip to sister Sue and her thoughtful hand-off of the hats -- not to mention filling in the details and backstories on the assorted lids along the way.

PC 311: Yellow Dot
PC 310: Agua Caliente Cap
PC 309: Ace in the Desert

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!
