Place of Origin

Maker Van Heusen

Maker Details It begins in 1881 in the Appalachian coal country of Pennsylvania, where Moses Phillips and his son Isaac sold woolen shirts to local coal miners from a wooden handcart. The shirts, sewn at home by Moses’ wife Endel and their daughters, soon gained a following for their looks and their longevity.
