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.

Just in case you were on Michigan Ave this weekend and sensed something different with Banana Republic, congratulations on your sixth sense. The first initial phase of the Banana Republic remodel will be complete on Wednesday and revealed to the public. Look forward to an all-new paint job, a new ground floor and fourth floor layout, new flooring and updated fixturing. Next up will be the closing of the Men's third floor and part of the first floor to make way for a new and improved cash wrap.
