American Eagle Opens

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.

A sparkling brand-new American Eagle Outfitters flagship store flung its doors open today in Manhattan's SoHo. What's the big deal? Um, 1,000 people showed up at 4:30 a.m. to line up for its grand opening. Seriously, folks, we were there—and we filed our report and observations over on Racked NY. There's actually a ton of really great exclusive merch in this location, so when the furor dies down, we're gonna head over there and pick ourselves up an antler-knit-faux-fur-lined-hat. Yup.
