  1. rkiz and katev like this.
  2. I didn't realize that Chef Mario Batali was part of the family.
     
  3. Dumb question but why do coach items say est. 1941 if the Cahns began the business in 1961?
     
  4. I think the New York Times got some of the details wrong. According to Wikipedia, Coach existed in 1941 as a family run shop that made small leather goods. The Cahns took over in 1946. Bonnie Cashin started designing for Coach in 1961.
