Updating a Classic: A New Look for Racked

New, 2 comments

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.

Fashion changes pretty fast. There's a certain irony in the fact that a blog dedicated to chronicling fashion and style—like this one—has kept the same look for so long. But we're like a DVF wrap dress or a Chanel jacket: a classic that can be made to look fresh, exciting and new with just a few little tweaks.

If you've been reading Eater or Curbed, you'll recognize the new look. We want to make it easier to access recent news about individual neighborhoods—look for clear neighborhood links to the right of each post, and a full neighborhood list down the right column. We're going map-tacular, showing mapped locations alongside many posts (and, for the map obsessed amongst us, on the Giant Map that shows recent posts from all Curbed Network sites.) And we're tweaking the way user comments are displayed—guest (anonymous) comments remain, but are hidden by default. To view them, click the "Show guest comments" link at the top and bottom of each comment thread.

So, please, don't be shy: dive in, try it on for size. Let us know by email to la@racked.com if something looks amiss and we should make some, ahem, alterations. Please keep on tipping and sharing your thoughts. And you have our sincere gratitude for your continued readership and support.
