Project Cubbins: Hat 340 - Paper Olive Edition

Day 340 / Hat 340: Olive-drab-colored, western-style woven hat with braided brown leather (or faux leather) hat band detail and brown, stretchy fabric interior sweatband. Interior label reads: "Broner, wear it!" and interior tag reads: "100% paper, men's one size, made in China."

Plucked for the Project from the most recent batch of loaner lids graciously provided by The Headwear Association.

Though not exactly my style, I think it lends a distinct James "Crocodile Dandy" Goldstein vibe to my look -- if crocodiles were made of paper, that is.

PC 339: Hello Knitty Cap
PC 338: Human Sock Monkey
PC 337: Monster Tiara

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 celebrated 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
