I love their selection of anime and Disney. They always have cute Studio Ghilbli stuff too! And they now carry a bunch of Sailor Moon stuff! They have pretty good sales and they reward you with 'Hot Cash' which is Hot Topic money to spend back at the store.

I absolutely love this store much. I shop at hot topic a lot I go in there every time I go to the mall. Not only do they have band shirts but they have makeup, jewelry, and other graphic tees. They even have alternative fashion if you're not in too all the bands.

I love Hot Topi! No matter where the store is, theres always an awesome vibe and experience! They have great products from different bands, super heroes, villains and cartoons to crazy awesome unique merchandise. They also have awesome prices and sale and talk about the vibe and music its great!

Not as good as they used to be, but they have something for everyone. I shop there frequently because it's the only store that has my style of clothing in my area. Quality isn't always the best, and sometimes it's ok. I would recommend shopping here to anyone.

The quality of most Hot Topic brand clothes/accessories is pretty low. The other brands they carry tend to be a little more well made. Their range of t-shirts can be found other places for less and their body jewelry is probably the worst thing you could ever put in your face/ears. Fine for thirteen year olds testing out who they are, not so much for grown adults.

My daughter loves hot topics we could spend hours in that store she finds a lot of shirts of her favorite bands that she likes you can also sign up for a reward discount card that's pretty good if you shop there a lot so I signed her up for one that just gave her an excuse to always go shopping there now .it does have a lot of cool stuff from hair dye to cloths.

Hot topic is perfect if you are looking for a band t shirt. Honestly the store kinda smells weird to me and like all hot topics smell the same. It's weird.
If you are into this style, it's pretty awesome.
If you aren't, it's a smelly store with good band tees.

The last thing I bought from this place (last year) was a stuffed animal from one of my favorite cartoons... This used to be my favorite store when I was around fifteen, but five years later I find it harder to find things I actually like. The clothes are really cute but way too expensive for the quality. I do however love all of the cartoon merch they now have.

Overall, HT is a really nice store. their products are high quality and decently priced, and they're always having sales. my only suggestion would be to maybe extend the women's styles into plus sizes? I love some of their designs but they tend to run a little small, so I'd need a size bigger than what they offer in stores. their men's shirts are true to size, however.

Hot Topic always lures me in. I'm pretty sure I love everything that they sell. I do remember one time they sold a VERY pornographic film to my brother (he was about sixteen at the time) and my dad was really appalled by that. Other than that, I love how they vary in everything that they sell. If I could pick a shop to be buried at, it would be Hot Topic.

Has anyone else noticed the differences in the sizing? I usually wear a large in dresses, and an Xtra large in women's shirts and small in men's shirts. I just bought a medium size long sleeve shirt that fits perfectly.

What's your favorite thing about Hot Topic? Mine is the collection of characters & jewelry that isn't widely sold in other stores. The emo styles!
