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.

The Wang x H&M sale is going live online at 10am, or "around 10am." Things look normal on the site right now, but at around 5:50am this morning we caught glitches occurring on the sale's homepage. While technical difficulties are par for the course when it comes to collabs, we're hoping that the site will at least stay up long enough to get that neon sports bra through checkout.

And, while you're planning your attack, take note that there won't be any holding merchandise in carts allowed. According to the message on the site, "items placed in the shopping bag are not reserved," so don't spend any time shopping around if you've really got your eye on a certain piece.

Update: They're pulling the site down for about 15 minutes for maintenance. Sit tight everyone.

10:01am: H&M's site is still down but 13 pieces from the collection are live and shoppable on Alexander Wang's site!

10:24am: There's nothing but these high top scuba sneakers in a size 10 left on H&M is STILL down.

10:34am: H&M is live! It looks like nothing has sold out so far, but we're experiencing glitches during checkout.

10:47am: Pity the H&M technical web support team. The product pages are still wonky:

11:00am: We were able to make it all the way to checkout this time before getting kicked off. Progress! H&M recommended trying to order over the phone (855-466-7467), but those lines are currently tied up as well.

11:18am: The men's section is completely wiped save for these leather high tops. If you're a men's size 7.5, you're in luck.

11:28am: And it's all already up on eBay. The cropped scuba sweater that retailed for $60 is being sold for $120, and that $30 Wang beanie has a buy it now price of $80.
