Project Cubbins: Hat 390 - I Want My BabyGap, BabyGap, BabyGap Edition

Day 390 / Hat 390: Gray felt-like BabyGap fedora with blue and red grosgrain hatband detail and gray elasticized sweatband. Interior label reads: "babyGap, S/M, made in China," and fabrication tag reads: "91% polyester, 6% cotton, 3% other fibers exclusive of decoration, label made from 100% recycled plastic."

Additional refers to the style as "TB fedora," the color as "dolphin gray," and indicates it was manufactured in May 2012 for the Fall.Winter 2012 season.

Purchased specifically for the Project from the UTB Good Will store on Beverly Blvd. -- for the princely sum of $4.99.


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.
