This article profiles Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. as one of the best managed companies in the U.S. The company used to be a sleepy maker of men's dress shirts. Recognizing that its brands like Geoffrey Beene and Izod were what sold well, the company started to beef up marketing for those labels; then in 2003 it bought big-time Calvin Klein for an estimated $700 million in cash, stock and an ongoing earnout payment to designer Calvin Klein until 2018.
