The Van Heusen roots start out in 1881 with the Philips family. Moses and his son Isaac sold woolen work wear shirts made by his wife and daughters to coal miners out of a handcart. The Philips family grew in popularity because their shirts were so durable and long lasting. Aspiring to greater heights, the family moved to NYC in 1910 where they eventually partnered with Dutch immigrant, John Manning Van Heusen, who had developed a soft folding color that maintained a stiff collar look without the discomfort. The Philips-Van Heusen brand developed a reputation for quality, creativity, and innovation. At Gotapparel.com we are happy to showcase a variety of modern Van Heusen styles for men and women at easily affordable prices.
