Hello,

What is the ranking for the top lines of Calvin Klein? I believe that there is Calvin Klein Collection, and also Black Label. Are there any others?

I haven't bought Klein for some time so what are the pricing for shirts, pants, jackets for these two collections? Thank you.

I can't speak to pricing, but you're correct about the hierarchy. In mens' wear, it seems to go thus:

Calvin Klein (Black Label)
Calvin Klein Collection
cK Calvin Klein
cK Jeans

I wouldn't touch either of the last two (though I understand that cK Calvin Klein is a Gruppo GFT license, which means it's probably wearable, at least). Calvin Klein Collection stuff seems quite nice, if you like the look, but is extremely expensive - a few seasons back, they had cotton golf shirts for US$450.

Calvin Klein Black Label garments are lovely but difficult to come by - I suspect they're only sold in Calvin Klein boutiques? I have a grey, very narrow-lapel two-button number that I bought in New York that I always get compliments on - but I can't even figure out who makes it. (Not Zegna, before anyone suggests it.)

The newish Calvin Klein white label is actually pretty decent - a bit minimalist, and wearable, especially given the price (and it's ability to be had on sale very often).
