We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked NY and Racked LA; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left, we have our NYC contender Andrew (45.4% Perfection!/43.7% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/10.9% Who did this to you?) wearing a Marc Ecko t-shirt, Paul & Shark Yachting pants and a jacket and Converse sneakers. On the right, we have our LA contender Sarah (32.1% Perfection!/34.9% So close/10.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/22.6% Who did this to you?) wearing a vintage dress, shoes from a boutique in Chicago, stockings and jewelry from Forever 21, and carrying a Louis Vuitton handbag.
