In times like these, who doesn't like to get stuff for free? Lucky for you, the Racked Giveaway Extravaganza is underway. Until we run out of merch, while supplies last, for a limited time only, etc. etc., check this space every day for new chances to win. We're cleaning out the sample closet, hitting up our favorite designers for gratis goods and will be sending it all your way. EVERYTHING MUST GO. 'Tis the season, friends.
Here's one for the guys (or the women who love them) from LA's Cloth Logic. We were taken with the label's spring '09 collection, which showed with sister label Tulle, at LA Fashion Week, where vintage met modern with pleasing aplomb. From Cloth Logic's winter '08 collection, we have a deep gray crew sweater with military styling, which retails for $70, and a black hooded wool coat with ample, precise pockets and back vent for comfort, retail value $130.
Though days are infrequent when you can pile on the wool layers in LA, these are perfect for your cold-weather travels. As such, we want to hear your most nightmarish travel experience. Email us the nitty-gritty details, and the worst of the bunch gets the cozy duo! Contest ends 6pm tomorrow!
