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 Arabella (70.9% Perfection!/ 16.3% So close/ 11.6% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 1.2% Who did this to you?) wearing an Urban Outfitters dress, sandals and a cropped jacket from Australia, and Ray-Ban sunglasses.

On the right, we have our NYC contender Alanzo (38.2% Perfection!/ 14.6% So close/ 11.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 35.8% Who did this to you?) wearing a Hanes undershirt, a shirt from American Eagle, shorts from Vintage Army Surplus, vintage YSL glasses, and a bag from the National Rifle Association.
