Day 429 / Hat 429: Black floppy sun hat with braided woven 3.5-inch brim and crocheted scallop-patterned 3-inch crown. additional detail includes black woven hatband detail with knot.Interior tag reads: Scala, handcrafted headwear since 1921," and fabrication tag reads: "100% paper, one size," on front and "MARLP86-ASST, made in China" on the other.

The second of the hats-at-the-door collection loaned to the Project by Josie Witte (you saw the first a few days ago at PC: 425).

The hat-tip to JW and a public service reminder to keep that noggin properly covered out of doors!

And if you don't have a hat, I bet I know where you can find one ...

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.
