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.
