Calvin Klein’s Long Lost Brother?

Only a few people know about this, but Calvin Klein has a long-lost brother who grew up in another place. Cailv Kailun is also a designer, and has also designed his own apparel under his own name.

that being said I actually love bootleg logos and bootleg products - like even more than the actual real stuff - i think because I enjoy the bootleg/pirate spirit, and the ambitiousness to not care about copyrights - and brands take themselves too seriously

Once upon a time, over 20 years ago, I lived in the Dominican Republic for about a year. Needed a new belt one day. Came home with a brand new, spiffy looking, Bogle Boy leather belt. Literally took me weeks before I realized it didn't say Bugle Boy (which is a brand that existed, was big in a span of the '90's, then completely disappeared).
It was a nice fake... but I was too embarrassed to wear it since the lettering was clearly visible. What's kind of weird is the reasoning behind the misspelling. Like... why? I also most definitely owned fake Vuarnet and Ocean Pacific clothing at the time, which had legit looking labels with proper spelling on the shirts, it was just the internal label which indicated that it was clearly made by other companies. So why bother with a misspelling, especially for clothing in countries where counterfeit isn't going to be punished? Basically what I'm saying I guess is that if you're going to clearly do a ripoff counterfeit, just go all the way. Nobody wants something that says Bogle Boy or Cailv Kailun.
