Project Cubbins: Hat 439 - Hemp Day Edition

Day 439 / Hat 439: Gray, flat-topped cap with short bill. Interior tag reads: "Yellow 108, 56% hemp, 44% recycled polyester, made in China." 

Hang tag reads: "Yellow 108 is based in sunny Los Angeles, California. We specialize in creating access made from recycled, salvaged and sustainable materials.Designed to make you smile :)" (emphasis original).

Yes, in a moment of weakness I stealth-snapped at the local Whole Foods on the way to work. You might say I went for a salad and left with a hat. But in my defense it is a super cute lid, no?

Based on a cursory search of the interwebs I believe the company calls this style the "Curtis Cap." (I could'nt find an adult version at the Yellow 108 site but here's a kids' version in purple.)

The road to 500 is a rocky one and sometimes these measures must be taken.

PC 339: Hello Knitty Cap

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
