A sparkling brand-new American Eagle Outfitters flagship store flung its doors open today in Manhattan's SoHo. What's the big deal? Um, 1,000 people showed up at 4:30 a.m. to line up for its grand opening. Seriously, folks, we were there—and we filed our report and observations over on Racked NY. There's actually a ton of really great exclusive merch in this location, so when the furor dies down, we're gonna head over there and pick ourselves up an antler-knit-faux-fur-lined-hat. Yup.
