Street Scenes East-West Friday Face Off: Liisa vs. Roman

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'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 Liisa (44.3% Perfection!/38.6% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/17% Who did this to you?) wearing a jacket from a thrift store in Seattle, Uniqlo jeans and Two Lips boots.

On the right, we have our LA contender Roman (51.1% Perfection!/18.9% So close/18.9% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/11.1% Who did this to you?) wearing a Cotton Club shirt from Paris; Diesel jeans; a Ralph Lauren vest, hat and shoes; and a Cartier watch.
