From a Racked commenter and Hermès aficionado: "The line was not that bad AT ALL, compared to six months ago. In fact, I am surprised it wasn't longer. Last year, I came 2 hours before opening and arrived to over a hundred people before me. This time, arriving 2 1/2 hours early I was 4th in line. Just left at 10am and barely ANY people in line (11-12 people)." [Racked Comments]
