Project Cubbins: Hat 374 - One Night Only Edition

Day 374 / Hat 374: Black, pinch-front braided-paper fedora with 1.5-inch-wide hatband in black with white diagonal stripe detail with bow and  matching interior sweatband.

Brim measures 2 inches, crown height is 5 inches. Interior label reads: "Broner" and interior label reads: "100% paper, men's L, made in China." Hangtag reads: "Linwood Avenue by Broner." 

Another loaner from The Headwear Association's sample closet, I was able to sleuth out the style name of this bad boy from parsing the number (88-451), listed above the UPC code on the reverse side of the hangtag. According to Broner's Spring/Summer 2014 catalog,  this is called the "One Night Only." In addition to black, it's available in "One Other Color Only" -- which would be "ivory."

As I've now exhausted the latest shipment, I offer the obligatory hat-tip (and a deep bow of thanks) to THA for throwing its members' hats in my ring.

Onward to 500!


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
