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.

Have you ever been shopping at your local Banana Republic and thought, "man, wouldn't it be great if I had the love of my life here, telling me how fine I look in my business casual separates"? Now you can get one step closer to the dream thanks the American retailer's partnership with Match.com. BR is hosting eight "meet and greets" for Match.com members only in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago as a part of its perfectly timed "Love" campaign.

As another feature to the campaign—and in case you need some tips—blogger Joy Cho of Oh Joy! will be showing you how its done (Exhibit A pictured above). She's recreating her first date with her husband on the brand's Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter pages with the hashtag #BRlove. Keep an eye on those social resources for more info on the meet ups.
