Now that Nordstrom has dropped Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, Donald Trump has launched — what else — a Twitter offensive against the Seattle department store. While buying something from Nordstrom is a nice show of solidarity (wouldn’t it be interesting if the company posted a banner sales month?), you can take it a step further with purchases that are a bit more pointed. Like a nice white pantsuit, or a newspaper tote bag, or a pair of boys’ gloves (size small).
Because after Tom Ford told the ladies on The View that he had refused to dress Melania, Trump told Fox News that he wasn’t a fan of the designer, and never had been. (Yes, $37 is expensive for a bar of soap, but it’s a cute-slash-ridiculous Valentine’s Day gift for a Fashion Man.)
Because the politically engaged designers of Opening Ceremony just staged a protest-themed fashion show.
Because these sneakers literally say the word Mexico on them.
Because Maria Cornejo’s also been very vocally anti-Trump.
Because Nike’s CEO, Mark Parker, spoke out strongly against the Muslim ban.
Because as any kid who’s been bullied on the schoolyard will tell you, the only way to defuse an insult is to reclaim it as a badge of honor. Not only are these the most comfortably warm wool socks — they also scream, “Yes, I’m a snowflake, and I’m proud of it.”
Update: These socks are sold out, but here’s a lovely, $12 snowflake choker.
Because these have double meaning! The easily bruised Trump really does need to be handled with kid gloves; and, of course, Drumpf is famously sensitive about his smaller-than-average hands. And either way, your son will have a nice, new pair of warm gloves.
