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.

Coming to lower Sixth Avenue later this year is Destination XL, a "superstore" for big and tall guys looking for larger sizes of contemporary labels. The selection will include True Religion, Michael Kors and Brooks Brothers alongside an in-house line. They're taking over a part of what used to be Staples, which has been shuttering several stores across the country.

Just a few avenues east, the Casual Male store, which is owned by the same parent company, will be shut down.
