Overview

What started out as a coat-shop with childhood friend Barry Schwartz in 1967, is today recognized as one of the most famous fashion brands in the world, Calvin Klein, Ltd. Over the generations Klein, the “Sultan of Simplicity,” has helped define the American look, from classic jeans to sexy underwear, sportswear, fragrances, and more. While mothers may blame Klein for their kids’ underwear sticking out of their pants, Calvin Klein (brand) makes more than $5 billion in sales every year, and is one of the most successful and profitable fashion brands in the world.
