There's a 6 Hour Line at UNIQLO Right Now

A hurricane of San Franciscan stereotypes made landfall on Union Square earlier this morning as our Asian fetish and love for standing in lines mixed with a Rainbow staircase and cool winds over the Pacific.  Unfortunately, people in the back of the line won't be greeted with a new iPhone or even some braised lamb cheek from Mission Chinese, but instead with cheap colorful cashmere sweaters that'll likely fall apart by nightfall.

Update: My friend working in the area went back around 4:15pm and said the wait is down to 45 minutes to an hour (which leads us to wonder if the 6 hour figure he was ballparked earlier was, ahem, slightly exaggerated).

At the time this story was posted the store hadn’t even been open for six hours yet. How could someone tell that the wait was six hours.

math, bro: # of people in line/# of people entering in an hour = # of hours one needs to wait for cashmere on the cheap

That’s some pretty questionable extrapolation right there.

or more likely beezies were getting hyperbolical

I’m still in line.

Bastards.
