New, 3 comments

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 Vox.com, 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 like to shop online as much as we like to shop on foot. But sometimes, the overwhelming selection of web merchandise leaves us torn between two similar items. Here, we'll ask you to pick for us. Call it Sophie's Other Choice. Feel the need to explain your decision? Hit up the comments.

On the left, we have the Alexander Wang thermal onesie. Cost: $228 on Oaknyc.com. Crucial details: long white thermal onesie with a button front placket; a worn look with tiny holes that age and grow with wear; 50% cotton, 50% modal.

On the right, we have the Eairth Ifugao jumper. Cost: $191 on Oaknyc.com. Crucial details: full body jumper made of hand-dyed cotton sail cloth; front metal zipper closure with velcro tab cover and encased drawstring waist; patch pockets and cargo pockets placed throughout; velcro air vent detail at knee; ribbing on neck, ankle, and wrist; 100% cotton.
