Every pierced and tattooed teen in the city knows that shops like Hot Topic are the places for all indie and punk culture–related merchandise. But where do you go once you’re past your 21st birthday? Luckily, the founders of the popular mall-rat shop have realized that teens do, in fact, grow up, so they’ve opened Metropark, a store that keeps Hot Topic’s rebel edge and takes it to a slightly sophisticated level—and higher price points. Items such as men’s Obey T-shirts ($29–$36), Mek Denim jeans ($139) and Matty M crocheted cotton tube dresses for the ladies ($79) are featured in the Lincoln Park outpost.
