The brand is partly named after Dutch immigrant John
Manning Van Heusen, who in 1910 invented a new process that
fused cloth on a curve.
The history of Phillips-Van Heusen (PVH) goes back in part to Dramin
Jones, a Prussian immigrant who founded the shirt manufacturing company D.
Jones & Sons c. 1857. Separately, in 1881, Moses Phillips and his wife
Endel began sewing shirts by hand and selling them from pushcarts to local
anthracite coal-miners in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. This grew into a shirt
business in New York City.
D. Jones & Sons merged with M. Phillips & Sons in 1907 under the name
Phillips-Jones after Dramin Jones's death in 1903. Later Isaac Phillips
met John Van Heusen, resulting both in their most popular line of shirts
(Van Heusen), and in the subsequent acquisition of Van Heusen by
Phillips-Jones and its renaming to Phillips-Van Heusen in 1957. In
2011, Phillips-Van Heusen is renamed to PVH.
