Jil Sander's line for Uniqlo, +J, landed in stores today. Doors opened at the Soho flagship at 546 Broadway this morning at 10 a.m., and by 3 p.m. 75 eager shoppers were still waiting in line outside. Security guards kept the crowd moving briskly, letting in up to fifteen at a time. Once inside, the +J line was curtained off with floor-to-ceiling white sheets. People seemed to be buying in bulk, and smaller sizes were scarce, especially the wool jackets, collared shirts, and stretch cashmere items, which the sales team says have been the best sellers.

The items that are nearly sold out include:

WOMEN
• Velvet tuxedo jackets
• Gathered jackets
• Wool blazers
• Miniskirts
• Button-down shirts
• Stretch cashmere items

MEN
• Most wool trousers
• Most wool outerwear
• Stretch cashmere items

That sounds like everything! But the store expects to restock tonight, so if you didn't camp out for the items today, you'll probably still be able to pick something up by this weekend.
