Project Cubbins: Hat 315 - ART in RTH Edition

Day 315 / Hat 315: Black, super-soft, military-influenced cap with cord closure in back.

Additional detail on back of hat includes a pair of vertical button-hole-like holes. ("Designed for a feather," said the sales associate, "but you can put whatever you want there.")

Interior tags read: "RTH" and: "100% cotton, made in USA, gentle was cool, do not bleach, tumble dry low, med iron if needed,"

Purchased by the Bride for inclusion in the Project from Rene Holguin's RTH boutique n La Cienega, one of her favorite stores in the whole world, (longtime readers might recall I borrowed her RTH knit cap way back in August for PC 92.)

I'm thinking the flat circular top (which you can't really tell from the above photo since it's jammed down on my head) and short visor in front makes this more or less a civilian version of the kepi.

Whatever it is, I can tell you it's one of the most comfortable things I've ever placed upon my head, its broken-in feeling and super-soft hand making it the headwear equivalent of a James Perse T-shirt.

And you know what? I might just go find a feather for my cap.

PC 314: Sly Turk
PC 313: Naughty Lamb
PC 312: Brown Burlapish

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!
