In 1910 Moses Phillips and his son Isaac aspired to expand their clothing line and extend their reach, so they moved business operations to 502- 504 Broadway in New York City from Pennsylvania. With this move, the Phillips famikly business made the leap from small town to the national stage.
Also in 1910 a Dutch immigrant named John Manning Van Heusen invented a new process that fused cloth on a curve, fashioning a soft fold collar that captured the stiff collat look of the vera while affording the wearer a more comfortable fit.
After his quest to perfect his collar, Mr Van Heusen looked for a partner or buyer, and met with Isaac Phillips. The Phillips - Van Heusen alliance was born in 1919, the same year Van Heusens collar was patented in the United States. Van Heusen collars werec introduced to the public in 1921 and backed by the Worlds Smartest Collar, the companys first advertising campaign.
The collar and the campaign put Van Heusen on the map. Soon, the company was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Van Heusen brand acquired a reputation for its creative marketing.
