This streetwear shop looks as dark and gritty as the Frank Miller Sin City comic it's named for. Ear-numbing techno music and a graffiti-covered interior provide an appropriate backdrop for teens and 20-somethings prowling for sports wear with a rebellious vibe. Despite the punk rock feel, the shop's clothes, shoes, and accessories are largely mainstream and name-brand: Adidas sneakers, Puma hoodies, and ironic tees are packed into the men's section, along with the occasional studded belt or leather wrist cuff. Women may be surprised to find a decent collection of designer jeans, in addition to Izod polo shirts and Puma warm-up suits. One quirky section is full of kitsch, like Paul Frank wallets, blow-up dolls, cheeky coffee table books, and pop novelties.
