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, 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'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 Elizabeth (42.9% Perfection!/20.2% So close!/14.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./22.6% Who did this to you?) wearing Balenciaga jeans, a Martin Margiela jacket, shirts from Sara and K-Mart, Army/Navy surplus glasses, and Nike sneakers.

On the right, we have our NYC contender Jill (44.2% Perfection!/14.7% So Close./23.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./17.6% Who did this to you?) wearing a hand-sewn dress she bought on eBay, vintage Dingo boots, and a bag from Asos.
