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.

Ralph Lauren, who grew up in the Bronx and sold ties to department stores, made $27.7 million in the fiscal year ending 2010, says WWD. He also picked up $857.1 million from the "conversion and sales of some of his Class B voting shares" in June (we don't know what that means either, but $857.1 million is a lot of money). Forbes magazine estimates that Lauren is worth $4.6 billion. [WWD]
