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.

What to wear when you're a 6'2" man who's 163 pounds with 6% body fat and you can't appear too wealthy or too cut (even though you have a chiseled, Adonis-like frame) because you're trying to woo a country that's enamored with the idea that their politicians are regular folk? That's a tough one, but Paul Ryan has found a solution: baggy shirts, ill fitting pants, and lots and lots of fabric overhang. See all the bunching and weirdness over on Buzzfeed and instead of sending letters of support/rage-filled dissatisfaction, consider sending him names of decent tailors. [Buzzfeed]
