New, 1 comment

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 Willy (53.3% Perfection/21.3% So close/14.1% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/9.5% Who did this to you) wearing a sweater from Oak, a Rogan shirt, Jil Sander pants, and Martin Margiela shoes.

On the right, we have our LA contender Special (43% Perfection/22.3% So close/28.9% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/5.8% Who did this to you) wearing a jacket by American Apparel, a vintage shirt, Urban Outfitters jeans, and glasses from Ray-ban.
