For the past two years, Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation, one of the world's largest apparel companies, has been sponsoring the Pro Football Hall of Fame under it's Van Heusen brand, and just this year entered into a multi-year sponsorship agreement with the New York Giants. Now, the Van Heusen brand has entered into a sponsorship agreement with the NFL. The campaign, which will kick-off this Thanksgiving weekend, will focus on the brand's Pro Football Hall of Fame Fan's Choice program (www.fanschoice.com). The Fan's Choice Program is a forum where fans can "debate, discuss, and cast their ballot for who they believe should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2011." (Phillips-Van Heusen, November 22, 2010 Press Release) The Van Heusen brand will also sponsor the Giant's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.

Bass & Co., and its licensed brands, Geoffrey Beene, Kenneth Cole New York, Kenneth Cole Reaction, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Sean Jean, Chaps, Trump, JOE Joseph Abboud, DKNY, and Timberland.
