Project Cubbins: Hat 352 - Funky Teal Fedora

Day 352 / Hat 352: Teal-colored wool felt fedora with center dent crown and 1 3/4 inch brim. Additional details include black grosgrain hatband with brown feather, oval, metallic-looking pin with the name "Bailey" on it and brown fabric sweatband lining. Silver printing inside crown reads: "Bailey, est. 1922, LiteFelt, made in the USA, packalble, water repellant." Interior label reads: "Bailey of Hollywood," and interior tag reads: "100% wool, made in USA."

Another loaner from The Headwear Association, the hangtag on this lid identifies it as a style called "Tino." I dunno who Tino was but man, he sure inspired one snazzy looking lid.

PC 351: I Messed with Texas
PC 350:  Whole Earth
PC 349: Gettin' Crabby

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
