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.
Attention Racked readership: Later this week, we're making changes around these parts. Something big is about to happen, and we don't mean Fashion Week. We're not going to reveal details yet, but here's a clue: Right now, when you visit www.racked.com, the site automatically redirects you to ny.racked.com. Please, take a moment to bookmark ny.racked.com alongside that racked.com bookmark; the reason why this is a useful idea will be revealed Wednesday. [The Management]
