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.
We have a winner for our final Racked Awards reader poll, in the category of So Hot Right Now—VFiles! Congrats to them, and big ups to all the other nominees—particularly Carson Street Clothiers, who just tweeted: "In honor of overwhelming support we received in the @rackedny Awards, we are offering 15% off all in-store purchases today from 12-8!!"
