It's been more than five hours since the Hermès sale began this morning on West 18th Street and while the line to enter has dwindled, there's still a serious wait to get in. A correspondent sent us a photo of the scene (click to expand) taken from the best stakeout spot we've heard of yet: the second floor of the Modell's across the street. If you're still planning on going today, bring a diversion. [RackedWire]
