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.

After days of what counts as sweltering heat in San Francisco, that brisk chill that we know and love greeted our beloved city once more this morning. Since it's technically fall, and retailers want you to buy jackets —that's what normal people do during fall— we're here to help with a map to some of our favorite jacket-buying destinations. From puffers to capes, we have you covered. Some are cheap, some aren't, but —with 20 options— you should be able to find something somewhere.
