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 Joseph (48.5% Perfection!/19% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/32.5% Who did this to you?) wearing a Dolce & Gabbana suit, a vintage scarf, a tie and shirt from Barneys, Hugo Boss sunglasses, and Juno shoes. He's smoking a Arganese cigar from Davidoff.

On the right, we have our LA contender Tarah (47.5% Perfection!/19.8% So close/13.9% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/18.8% Who did this to you?) wearing Steve Madden shoes. Everything else is from her own label, Tarah Smith.
