The Hatrack Hunter Check Five Panel Camper Caps for March 2011 are a tribute to the blue collar Americans of the early 20th century. In Massachusetts, many cities and towns were built around the presence of textile mills, and many of the people who worked in them wore the products they produced on a daily basis. Hunter check fabric is a working class version of gingham in that the pattern is subdued by the use of tan instead of white in the weaving of the pattern. This series of caps was produced with the burgundy, forest green and red versions of the material and is labeled on the front with our “Use your head for something other than a hatrack” label, a quote passed down from great woman who worked in the textile mills of Massachusetts during the early to mid 20th century. The cap has a RAW logo label in the strap seam.
The T-7 Construction T-shirt is RAW’s take on the latest technology that goes into making skateboards. It stands for the traditional seven plies of maple that go into making a skateboard, minus the mumbo jumbo that will never save your board from eventually breaking.

The Stay Hungry series of skateboards is Jonah Miller's second full series of skateboards for RAW. It depicts the staple sandwiches found in delis throughout New England, the U.S. and the world, for that matter. In terms of skateboarding, the term "stay hungry" is a reminder to always make progress.
