Drumroll, please. We're about to introduce Racked Philly's first-ever annual Racked Awards, and an occasion like this requires a little fanfare. So what are the Racked Awards, exactly? It's a celebration of the best and brightest of Philly retail — the local labels, designers, and indie boutiques that made getting dressed the best part of waking up over the past 12 months.
Over the following week, we'll be asking readers to vote in three polls: Most Exciting Rittenhouse Row Addition, Best Men's Store, and So Hot Right Now. The winners will be announced on Thursday, October 10. Then we'll head to a party in New York to celebrate their glory the only way we know how: By getting them drunk and bestowing each with the coveted Golden Turban. Until then, keep an eye out for polls and get ready to lobby for your favorites in the comments. Without further ado, it's time for our first poll!
Update: This poll is now closed.
