Default Velvet Merkin

Has the FW Velvet Merkin made it to stores yet? If so, how hard is it to come by? We get limited FW distribution around here but I love their specialty releases! I'd love to get my hands on a Merkin :-)

Their website says 9/16/2013. Sounds like it should be hitting shelves everywhere right about now.

The release party at barrelworks was on Saturday.
Im sure east coast will see it in ~3weeks. Cali should be seeing it anyday on shelves.
