Last night, when we went to check on any Comme des Garcons line action at the Beverly Center and Sunset Boulevard, we didn't find any H&M waiters, but we did find Jon, who's been waiting outside the Beverly Center since Monday. What's he waiting for? "A four-pack of Nike Hyperdunks at House of Hoops." He wants to be sure to be first in line, and he absolutely is. He's waited in line like this before a few times but never for so many days. "I think three was the most." He's been living off a lot of Quiznos and snacks. He plans on buying one pair of each, at about $150 a pop. [RackedWire]
