Calvin Klein dinnerware, Polo house paint, and Tommy cars  AUG 23 1998

I'm looking though the Sunday paper today...searching for bargains. I open up the ad sheet for Dayton's, an upscale department store, and what do I see but dinnerware by Calvin Klein. Let me repeat that: dinnerware by Calvin Klein. And Ralph Lauren makes Polo house paint. Tommy, Calvin, and Ralph all have their own "lines" of bed linen. I'm currently looking for a new car...does anyone know if I can get a Tommy car yet? If I can, I bet it'll look just like a low-end Toyota and cost as much as a high-end Lexus.

And borrowing liberally from Henry Ford, Mr. Hilfiger had this to say about the Tommy car: "they can have a Tommy car in any color they want, as long as it's red, white, or blue."
