PVH NAME CHANGE?: The Phillips-Van Heusen name may be on the way out for the New York-based apparel giant. At the company’s annual meeting this morning, shareholders will vote on whether to officially shorten the company’s name to the acronym PVH Corp. Following the acquisition of Calvin Klein in 2003, the company began kicking around the idea of changing its name, and the acquisition of Tommy Hilfiger last year may have added to that momentum. The Phillips-Van Heusen name goes back as far as 1881, when Moses Phillips and his wife, Endel, sold hand-sewn shirts to coal miners in Pottsville, Penn.
