The line at the Manhattan Vintage Show in February
CHELSEA—The Manhattan Vintage show kicks off tomorrow at Metropolitan Pavilion. Last time, there was a line of about 150 eager shoppers waiting to get in when we dropped by at opening time, so go early if you don't want to stand on the sidewalk for an hour while more punctual types snap up all the good pieces. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online. [Manhattan Vintage]

The shop is releasing a collection of button-down shirts handmade in NYC, and will offer guests first crack at them along with cocktails mixed by a Clover Club bartender. The event's from 7 to 10pm; RSVP to email@example.com. [RackedWire]
