Project Cubbins: Hat 479 - USC Trojan Visor Edition

Day 479 / Hat 479: Gold-colored cotton visor with "USC" embroidered on front in cardinal red edged in white embroidery. Additional detail includes Velcro-closure adjustable strap with the word "Trojans" embroidered in all-capital letters over top and interior label that reads: "Heritage, 100% cotton, made in China."

The final lid plucked from the recent Josie Witte BOH, is, indeed, a visor -- though from the angle of the photo it sure seems like a full-on hat.

In putting together this post I found that the University of Southern California has some real detailed information out there on the interwebs about its school colors. For example, this little blurb from its website (it pertains to printed material in particular, but you get the idea):

"USC’s official colors are Pantone 201C and Pantone 123C. These colors, designated as USC Cardinal and USC Gold, are equal in importance in identifying the university. All printed materials, whether printed on coated or uncoated stock, should match color to the coated Pantone chips."

I think I'll take my coated (or uncoated) stock and call it a night -- with the final hat-tip and deep bow of gratitude to Josie.

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.
