As corporate historian at PVH (parent company to CALVIN KLEIN, TOMMY HILFIGER, and other apparel brands) I'm fortunate to have intimate access to the company's incredibly rich archives, with garments, photos, and business ephemera dating back to the 1870s. In addition to regular "Throwback Thursday" posts, I contribute longer-form "Stories from the Archives" to PVH's editorial content; samples are linked below.
Warner's Seaside Institute
The inspiring story behind the education and recreation facility established for the women workers of The Warner Brothers Co. back in 1887
Dress for Your Day
In honor of the new corporate dress code policy, a look back at what the company's associates have worn to work through the decades
The Arrow Collar Man
The secret romance between the celebrated illustrator J.C. Leyendecker and the man that inspired his most popular creation
I highlighted this engaging Jazz Age episode in honor of Pride Month, and Vogue.com picked up on the story.
