As vintage Americana style continues to rise in popularity, it's only appropriate to pay tribute to one of its earliest modern pioneers, Marvin Gaye. He crafted a captivating style in the seventies by combining country roots with eccentric adornments and colors, such as the memorable "Let's Get It On" single-cover outfit of a denim shirt and a red knit cap. In this 1973 photo, he sticks with the denim and knit cap and elevates the rugged style by adding a classic white tee, work boots, and high wool socks.
