Calvin Klein, Inc. is one of the leading fashion design and marketing studios in the world. The company began in 1968 when longtime friends Calvin Klein and Barry Schwartz opened a women’s coat business. The small enterprise quickly expanded to include sportswear and a complete ready-to-wear collection. Later, the brand went on to revolutionize how the world viewed – and bought – jeanswear and underwear through its cutting-edge designs and advertising. Today, the company continues to be driven by the timeless yet modern sophistication of Mr. Klein’s original creative philosophy.

Reebok's United Kingdom-based ancestor company was founded for one of the best reasons possible: athletes wanted to run faster. So, in the 1890s, Joseph William Foster made some of the first known running shoes with spikes in them. By 1895, he was in business making shoes by hand for top runners; and before long his fledgling company, J.W. Foster and Sons, developed an international clientele of distinguished athletes. The family-owned business proudly made the running shoes worn in the 1924 Summer Games by the athletes celebrated in the film “Chariots of Fire.”
