Email Scan: A New Menswear Designer, A Nifty Wireless Headset, A Buzzed-About Tote And A Comfy Desk Chair

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We scan the inbox so you don't have to. Today, four items of note:

MESSAGE: A new menswear designer (formerly a contestant on Fear Factor) whose clothing is available at boutiques INA Men, Namja, Caravan, Oak and Razor as well as on his website (the discount code for online purchases is PR-J95II40C34K).
DISCONTINUED: "Though perhaps most famous for suckling a goat's teat on national TV, Yoo's now carving a more savory rep with a line of button-downs equally suited for work/pleasure," "a must-have feature for the stylish/fat," "a siren song for women questing after a stinky, uncircumcised wang," "power through a garbage can full of tarantulas"
