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 $15, you get $30 worth of gently used clothing and accessories at Plato's Closet on Ming Avenue. At this location, girls' pant sizes tend to run 00–16 and guys' run 28–40. Shirts run XS–XL for girls and S–XXL for guys.
Plato's Closet carries a wide assortment of gently used men's and women's clothing and accessories, ranging from affordable high-end retail brands to finer designer items. Surrounded by discounts of as much as 70% off retail price, uninhibited shoppers can construct a complete outfit or six without having to empty their wallets to pan for river-diamonds. All of the merchandise that Plato's Closet stocks—including shoes, skirts, tanks, clutches, and more—is held to a strict quality standard and generally dates from the past 12 to 18 months. The racks of goods (individual items are often priced at less than $10) rotate constantly, and the front door goes ajar seven days a week, leaving a wide timeframe for store-crossed shoppers and garments to unite under seasonal practicality or astrologically illogical harmony.
