Before we close our laptops for the holiday weekend, let's all enjoy a little thing we like to call the East-West Friday Face Off. The drill: We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked LA and Racked NY; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left, we have our LA contender Match Stik (74.4% Perfection!/11% So close/9.8% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/4.9% Who do this to you?) wearing pants and shirt by Parasuco, Banana Republic jacket, PF Flyers shoes and vintage sunglasses.
On the right, we have our NYC contender Adam (59.4% Perfection!/20.5% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/20.1% Who did this to you?) wearing a Zara vest, a Uniqlo shirt, a Club Monaco tie, Gucci pants and Bottero shoes.
