Dear drstan,

Here is the only source for Van Heusen Super Silk shirts I was able to
locate. Boscov's offers them in various colours for $24.99 each:

Please note that these shirts will not be part of the Van Heusen
product line anymore, at least not under this name. In August, 2002,
the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board has decided that Van Heusen's
trademark "Super Silk" is deceptively misdescriptive of applicant's
goods and comprises deceptive matter, so the registration of the
trademark has been withdrawn. The United States Patent and Trademark
Office's database also lists Van Heusen's trademark "Super Silk" as
For this reason, the shirts at Boscov's are sales items, obviously the
last stock. Therefore, I recommend deciding soon whether to order a
quantity there.
