Rad Collector - Western Edition x Vans
There was a bit of a stir a little while back when the pics surfaced of these sick, sick Western Edition Sk8 Hi’s. A lot of people, including some of those close to the brand, didn’t know how they came to be. Turns out they were done by RAW skater Nate Keegan’s homie Hush, who took apart a pair of Sk8-Hi’s and meticulously reconstructed them into the WE 10th anniversary tribute joints you see above. Check out some more of Nate’s pair after the jump. These are 1 of 2 – the only other pair went to WE’s Ian Johnson, who created the graphic. Via Re1000.

Western Edition x RAW Present Marvin Gaye: 25 Years Later

Rad Collector - WE x RAW Marvin Gaye
As a tribute to Marvin Gaye on the 25th anniversary of his unfortunate death, Western Edition and RAW have gotten together to produce an amazing in memoriam limited edition collection. The collection consists of a red beanie in Marvin’s trademark style, a tee, and deck. The companies also released this thoughtful statement to accompany the news of this collaboration.

Every man’s life has a beginning and an end. The fact of the matter is, however, that it is what a man does with the time in between those two moments that defines how he will be remembered when it is all over. From his humble beginnings in our nation’s capital to his bizarre and tragic death at the hand of his own father, Marvin Gaye filled his moments in between with ideas that will forever maintain his status as a true genius. On April 1, 2009, the twenty-fifth anniversary of Marvin’s passing, we will, for lack of a better term, celebrate. Western Edition of San Francisco and RAW of Boston have released this collection to pay respect to the musical history that Marvin Gaye left for all of us to use as inspiration.

Looks at the whole collection after the jump.

RAW Summer ’08 Collection

29 May 2008, 15.00 | Posted in Fashion | No comments »

raw summer '08 collection - highsnobiety
RAW, Ready Amongst Willing, is a Boston based skateboard company that we have been watching since last year. What we enjoy most about their product is the clean design and message. You will not find oversized prints, over-designed graphics and so many other mistakes other brands out there make every day.
Their new Summer ’08 collection is the perfect example. They offer both t-shirts and 5-panel caps. The line-up is strong, yet subtle, which turns out to be timeless.
Check out the RAW Summer ’08 collection after the jump.
