CHELSEA—A tipster sends in more pictures of the Gucci line. This is the third time we've heard about the length of the wait, and yet nobody seems to have been inside. Is it possible that the line just hasn't moved all afternoon? [Racked Inbox]

NOLITA—A Continuous Lean brings the men of New York City a second incarnation of their Pop Up Flea, promising a "curated collection" of new and vintage-inspired menswear. Labels expected to be there include Rogues Gallery and No Mas, plus many more (check out their website for the full list). The sale runs from tomorrow, November 20 through Sunday, November 22 at 201 Mulberry Street—Friday from 3pm to 9pm, Saturday from 11am to 7pm, and Sunday from 11am to 6pm. [RackedWire]

MIDTOWN WEST—From the inbox comes this epic rave review of the Portolano sale, which is apparently glove heaven: "Just wanted to report back about the Portolano sample sale happening today at 15 West 37th. They have a huge selection of sample and stock gloves (leather, cashmere, etc), scarves, clothing for children (and a few women's dresses for $25), slippers, hats, etc. It seems like the main attraction were the beautiful leather gloves (which was why I showed up)—most were between $25-40 and between sizes 6-7.5. The selection really is massive, with tons of colors and designs with different embellishments, and almost all the gloves are lined in either silk or cashmere. They also had some from Moschino and Alberta Ferretti for $59.99, which seemed to be made from the same buttery soft leather as Portolano's house line. I ended up with an awesome pair of black leather driving gloves for myself ($25) and a simpler pair of tan leather ones for my mom ($30, because they were cashmere lined). There is also 10% off the marked prices on everything at the sale. Overall, very much worth going to if you need any winter gear or need to get some great Hanukkah/Christmas presents." [Racked Inbox]
