Hundreds of streetwear fanatics lined up for the reopening of the Supreme store on Lafayette Street this morning. The crowd was eager to get their hands on fresh fall merchandise after the store had been closed a whole two weeks for restocking. The first people in line — which stretched two blocks long — camped out since Tuesday night to have first pick of the goods. Jesus Ayala, 31, took yesterday and today off from his Department of Education job to secure his spot in the front. When the store opened at 11 a.m., Ayala got past the bouncer right away, and spent about $700 on a gray hoodie, camouflage pants, a belt, and a few T-shirts. Who says people aren't spending?
