Project Cubbins: Hat 447 -- The Big C Edition

Day 447 / Hat 447: White, baseball-style cap with the letter C in green embroidery on front and the word "Chapin" in all cap green embroidery on back above plastic adjustable sizing strap. Interior tag reads: "Yupoong, 60% cotton, 40% polyester, one size fits all, made in Dominican Republic."

Borrowed from the Bride, this hat references the Chapin School, the K-12 school for girls on Manhattan's Upper East Side that happens to be the Bride's (and the sister in-law's) alma mater. It's too new to be old hat so I'm guessing it was reunion-related. There's another Chapin cap you'll see sometime in the next 53 days but today you just get the C, see?

A hat-tip to all the Chapin ladies I know -- you're class acts, every single one of you.

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
