Los Angeles, We Bring You the Racked 38

View as Map

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.

Many weeks and thousands of dollars in the making, we present the Racked 38, our relatively definitive list of what shopping in Los Angeles is all about. Included are stores that are wholly unique or uniquely Los Angeles -- Wacko and Fred Segal, respectively -- as well as shopping that just plain kicks ass. We've included just a few for the novelty factor, but for the most part, this is a list of retailers who, from display to staff to selection, do it right.

It's impossible to make everyone happy. Your favorite not on this list? Make your case in the comments, or send an email to the tipline.
