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 Alessandro (71.8% Perfection!/ 14.3% So close/ 10.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 4.2% Who did this to you?) wearing a jacket, pants, and tie from Jil Sander, shoes from Dior and glasses from Morgenthal Frederics.

On the right, we have our LA contender Rosson (37.5% Perfection!/ 15.6% So close/ 23.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 23.4% Who did this to you?) wearing a vintage dress and sunglasses, Zara shoes, and a Marc Jacobs handbag.
