New, 5 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, 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.

Time for a fun new game, folks. 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 Joao (63.6% Perfection!/22.1% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./14.3% Who did this to you?) dressed in a shirt from "80's Brazilian designer" Mr. Wonderful, Trovata shorts, Flossy shoes and Super sunglasses. On the right, we have our LA contender Lorena (39% Perfection!/31.4% So close./15.2% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./14.3% Who do this to you?) wearing a Banana Republic dress and bag, Montego Bay Co. sandals, H&M belt, Forever 21 scarf, and glasses by JF Rey.
