All morning, the wait outside 260 Fifth's J.Crew sample sale stretched past 90 minutes. Is it crazy to wait over an hour to shop a mall store at 60% off? We're not going to pass judgement, but we will tell you that as of fifteen minutes ago, the line had dwindled to a nearly reasonable state. It no longer wraps around the block, and it's pretty neatly contained by the velvet ropes. If you go now, expect to wait 30 to 45 minutes.
