Great news, Hermés fans: As of 2:30pm, the line for the sample sale is no longer three hours long. In fact, it's only 45 minutes to an hour, according to the guy at the door. The outdoor section of the line is only about 20 people deep, and they seem to be letting people in fairly regularly. However, the line apparently continues once you get inside, winds around the building and goes up stairs. The outdoor portion of the line is also directly under the sun, and it currently feels like about 90 degrees with no breeze. We strongly suggest sunscreen and water bottles. There, you've been warned. If that doesn't turn you off discounted leather goods, get there now before the after work rush!—Molly Vu
