Vintage Calvin Klein Hoodie. In 1968, Calvin Klein founded Calvin Klein Limited, a coat shop in the York Hotel in New York, with $10,000. The first Calvin Klein collection was a line of "youthful, understated coats and dresses" featured at the New York store, Bonwit Teller. Just one year later, in September 1969, Klein’s designs appeared on the cover of American Vogue. And rest as they say it history.
