Social media pantsed Nordstrom, and jacketed the retailer with criticism for its $900 mud-splattered denim duo of jacket and jeans. This, despite the brand’s Teflon-coated ability to deflect presidential ire after pulling First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing line from its shelves a few months ago.
The day of brands quaking at the thought of a presidential tweet may be over, thanks to the Nordstrom surge. The retailer made a business decision to remove First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s fashion line from its stores, saying the line’s sales were dropping. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump railed against the brand, saying Nordstrom treated his daughter unfairly.
