    Ever feel like your job in Hollywood or your large trust fund has left you out of touch with the working class in America? Well, now there’s a new way to reconnect with the hoi polloi: Buy a pair of $425 jeans that promise to show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.” Luxury fashion retailer Nordstrom was previously best known for dropping Ivanka Trump’s brand back in February—unofficially out of political spite, officially because of declining sales. The company is now desperate to ruin its own brand further by selling a pair of working class-inspired pants, so that...

    A $425 pair of men's heavily-distressed, straight-leg blue denim jeans sold at Nordstrom, which according to the retailer's website, has "seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you're not afraid to get down and dirty." ... Finally - a pair of jeans that look like they have been worn by someone with a dirty job…made for people who don't.

    Nordstrom insists its line of Ivanka Trump products, ranging from professional sheath dresses and black pumps, wasn’t selling well, so it had to be dropped. So what did it pick up? High-wasted, acid-washed mom jeans, complete with see-through knees, selling for $95 a pop. Made by Topshop — a hip British retailer — the jeans feature clear, plastic kneecap covers, sewn into the fabric. says the jeans have a “futuristic feel.” Even the liberal Huffington Post is questioning why.

    There's no such thing as bad publicity, as Ivanka Trump is discovering. The president's daughter was caught up in a row this month when Nordstrom said it would stop selling the her brand of products. Although the upmarket department store said the decision was simply down to poor sales, Donald Trump accused the company of treating his daughter "so unfairly". His senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was then "counselled" by the White House after urging the president’s supporters to buy Ivanka's line of products, which includes clothing, jewellery, handbags and other goods. The encouragement may have paid off as her perfume...

    A viral video shows a group of women storming into a Nordstrom to cancel their accounts in response to the retailer's decision to stop selling Ivanka Trump's fashion brand, promising to shop at Dillard's instead. Laurie Ray posted a video on Facebook of herself and seven other women — some wearing shirts with photos of President Donald Trump that say "Haters Gonna Hate" — walking into Nordstroms in Chandler, Arizona, with handfuls of cash to cancel their accounts. "I've been shopping at Nordstrom for 30 years," one woman in the video says, speaking into a telephone. "Because of your decision...

    On February 2, retail chain Nordstrom announced that they would drop Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, which sparked major controversy to whether the decision was political, based on her father’s presidency. Nordstrom said the choice was based on the performance of the brand. Actor Scott Baio, a supporter of President Trump, and his family have more than $30,000 last year at Nordstrom, but since the store decided to drop Ms. Trump’s brand, he says he is no longer willing to shop at the retailer. Baio also fired back at liberals who are boycotting stores that sell Trump merchandise.

    Last week, employees at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls got very clear instructions about where to put signs for Ivanka Trump products: in the garbage. The TJX Companies, the retailers’ parent company, told employees not to display Ivanka Trump merchandise separately and to throw away Ivanka Trump signs, according to a note to employees on Wednesday, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. “Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs,” the note read. “Runs” refers to the normal clothing racks where the majority of products hang. “All Ivanka Trump...

    Earlier this week Nordstrom announced the retail giant will no longer sell Ivanka Trump brand products in stores, severing the previously held business relationship. Belk, Jet, ShopStyle and Home Shopping Network all followed suit. In response to the move, President Donald Trump tweeted about the situation. “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!” While it’s certainly highly inappropriate for President Trump to go after a private company on issues of family business now that he’s in the Oval Office, he isn't...

    WASHINGTON, DC — President Trump tweeted a jab at Nordstrom department stores from his personal account Wednesday morning, which was then retweeted by the official @POTUS account. @POTUS, the official Twitter account for the president, had so far been reserved for government issues. The Trump tweet blasted Nordstrom for treating his daughter Ivanka “so unfairly” by discontinuing her fashion line. Nordstrom announced last week that it would no longer carry Ivanka Trump’s line of clothing and accessories. The president went on Twitter to defend his daughter — who is also a close White House adviser. “My daughter Ivanka has been...

    Retail department store Nordstrom’s decision last week to cut first daughter Ivanka Trump’s fashion line has sparked a tremendous backlash from consumers—especially women—who say the company’s move has led them to boycott the store and cut up their Nordstrom’s cards. Nordstrom’s claimed that the Ivanka Trump brand wasn’t performing well, but industry insiders tell Breitbart News that’s just not accurate. Nordstrom’s decision to mislead the public on why they are stopping carrying the Ivanka Trump brand is part of the fury out there among its longtime customers, who tell Breitbart News they’re cutting up their Nordstrom’s cards and won’t shop...

    Getting dumped by Nordstrom, which helped Ivanka launch her brand in 2011, bodes even worse for the first daughter’s business. This isn’t a singular designer making a personal political statement, it’s a commercial giant slowly backing away from a name it thinks might be bad for business. Neiman Marcus followed suit Friday when it pulled Ivanka Trump’s jewelry collection. Whether those actions are the result of a real lag in sales or are publicity-based decisions, if two major retailers are dropping her brand, others—including Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, Zappos, and Amazon—now have precedent to follow. And even if Nordstrom...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Nordstrom says it will stop selling Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories, creating some questions about the future of the brand elsewhere.That innocuous headline caught my eye Friday, because it confirmed the arrival of what FOX Business Network and SRN financial commentator Lou Dobbs brilliantly calls “Corporate Bullying.” Naturally, Seattle-based Nordstrom stores won’t cop to knuckling-under to threats of “boycotts” by ad hoc online terrorists like the group #Grab Your Wallet. When I contacted Nordstrom headquarters to get the straight-skinny on why Ivanka Trump’s product line is really being dropped. I received the following homogenized, weasel-worded response...

    Nordstrom will stop selling Ivanka Trump’s name-branded line of clothing and shoes, a company representative said Thursday. The change followed a weeks-long boycott campaign, organized by an anti-Trump activist group called “Grab Your Wallet.” The group demanded the department-store giant cease doing business with the president or his family. In a statement, the Nordstrom representative said that Ivanka Trump products were being dropped because of poor sales. Its statement did not mention the group’s boycott effort.
