The second law of thermodynamics and the first law of Nelly lyrics hold that ambient heat and clothing have an inverse relationship. Disturb the natural order with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of men's and women's apparel, accessories, and shoes at Incognito in Royal Oak.
For nearly 30 years, this industrial retail warehouse has stocked its racks with chic, alternative duds by brands such as Jeffrey Campbell and Miscellaneous, a tradition that earned the store a spot on Metro Times' Best of Detroit 2011 list. Legs stay warmer than chocolate-chip cookies just pulled from the clothes dryer in a pair of knee-high zippered stockings ($20). Skull Candy ear buds ($30) whisper sweet nothings into curious auditory canals, and classic black-and-white Converse All Stars ($45) reward feet for years of loyal service. Those seeking camouflage in a field of feral glow sticks can accessorize with a painted neon clutch ($65), and gals can increase pogo-stick difficulty by donning a pair of sky-high Luichiny surfer wedges in purple ($85). This Groupon is also valid for sale items.
