The pressure is mounting at A Bathing Ape. Per our correspondent, doors have still not opened and the raffle system is causing a lot of confusion. Earlier, staff had the first 100-150 people in line take a ticket, with people in line understanding that it denoted their place in line and a free T-shirt. Now, it seems that staff are honoring the free T-shirts but not necessarily honoring the tickets as line holders. Some people who had been waiting since Wednesday left for a bit and came back and now it look like they may be sh*t out of luck, and they're angry and upset. [RackedWire]
