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.

In a move set to attract the Advanced Style set, the perpetual do-gooders at Warby Parker have just announced the online arrival of progressive lenses. The no-line bifocals, which eliminate the need for separate reading and distance glasses, start at $295 including frame ($200 more than single-vision styles) and are available in both optical and sunwear designs. Your mom is going to be very excited about this.—Lauren Berger
