Hey ladies! Macy’s now selling hijabs!

Hard pass on that which women in Iran are fighting to have the right not to wear.

From InStyle: Macy’s is taking an inclusive step in the right direction with the launch of its latest line, Verona Collection.

Set to drop on Feb. 15, the modest brand is unique because it includes easy-to-wear items like tops, pants, cardigans, and dresses that are aimed at both Muslim and non-Muslim women. The collection comes from Lisa Vogl, a designer and 2017 graduate of The Workshop at Macy’s, which serves as an incubator for minority- and women-owned businesses.

The Verona Collection lookbook highlights multiple ways of wearing the pieces with accessories like sunglasses and various hand-dyed hijabs. Prices range from $13 to $85. In a statement, Vogl explained why finding space at Macy’s is so important to her. “Verona Collection is more than a clothing brand. It’s a platform for a community of women to express their personal identity and embrace fashion that makes them feel confident on the inside and outside,” she said.

While Macy’s and Vogl didn’t specifically tout the collection as targeted toward Muslim women, the line’s wraps can be worn as hijabs or similar headscarves. The term “hijab” itself loosely refers to the veil often worn by Muslim women, which comes in various in sizes, colors, and shapes. (There are many other forms of the veil, such as the burqa, which covers the entire face with a mesh layer over the eyes.)

“Through The Workshop at Macy’s, we want to nurture and support minority- and women-owned businesses to build their capabilities and become the next generation of retail partners,” Shawn Outler, Macy’s executive vice president of Licensed Businesses, Food Services, and Multicultural Initiatives, said in a statement.

The move is a major one for the major department store, especially considering modest options for Muslim women aren’t plentiful. Vogl’s online store currently ships to the U.S. and U.K., and includes beauty products like nail polish and hair mist, not to mention quick tutorials that show women how to style and accentuate their hijabs.

  3. Seriously, how many hijabs does Macy’s imagine would sell? This will only hasten store closings, 11 so far this year, and we’re only 10 days into February.

      • Right. Macy’s has fired at least two Christians that I’m aware of, who’ve agreed to enforce the tranny bathroom order but said they were personally opposed because they’re Christians.

        Macy’s is also highly emblematic of the NWO, promoting public opposition to this very sort of Islamic dress for women in Iran as a means of destabilizing that nation while promoting it’s use here to destabilize this nation.

  5. Good Grief! This article indicates that these hijabs will go on sale in order to satisfy Muslim women and other’s alike (I am paraphrasing.) Really, how many “other women are going to rush to Macy’s to purchase these rags.” My heart stands with all the Muslim women all over the globe who wish to throw off this symbol of their ownership by the men in their lives–Fathers, Brothers, Sons, Uncles, Cousins, etc. My heart goes out to all those women who are thought of by their “male owners” as being lower than animals. The very reason why some Muslime men would rather fornicate with a goat, rather than their wife. This BS on the part of Muslime men is outrageous. Any self respecting American women needs to find her voice, or pick up a pen and tell Macy’s exactly what they think of this. Shame on Macy’s for pandering to the male Muslime community! I can only hope that Macy’s continues to slide as far as paying customer’s coming through their doors–and that it is necessary to close yet additional stores. This is thoroughly un-American BS thinking! A pox on Macys.

      Even though we had a Macy’s card, we stopped it when Macy’s stopped carrying the Trump fashions.

  6. Just how many more bad decisions can retailers make? Pennys a few years ago decided to pander to gays, turned off straights. K mart locally got so desperate they shut down half of store lighting. Sears just closed our mall store. I bet they never went shopping at a competitor to see what they are doing. Went to a new double enlarged IKEA in Burbank. Beautiful store catering to high rent people living in cubicles. I once worked for B of A . Their retirement plan was based on Sears. Tell that now to the poor guy without a job after working at Sears for 15 years.

    It is a fine thing for women to adopt more modest garb out of sincere respect for moral values; but to even suggest that islam, and in turn muslim customs, should be granted any serious cultural viability is anathema to any freedom minded people.

    • Kevin . . . . Thank you so much for that the sincerity in the comment regarding “women wearing more modest garb out of sincere respect for moral values.” But, unfortunately, we all know too well, that the women who are wearing these modest garments are forced to do so by the men in their lives; supposedly so that honor Alah, but personally I think this s a way of branding the women, and subjugating them . . . that is not freedom, and for anyone who is Christian . . . we all know that Christ would have us choose for ourselves to dress and act in a pure, modest, chaste manner. In the Muslim world the women are forced under threat to dress as the men wish!

  14. That photo looks like the woman is having a ‘bad hair day’.
    Some countries were saying (England I think) that the hijab is a security risk. After all, anyone could don one of those and go rob a bank. If they went “full burqa” they’d definitely obscure themselves, wouldn’t be able to tell if they’re male, female, or anything else.
    Wouldn’t it be ironic of Macy’s got held up by someone in a hijab. 🙂

    • chemtrailssuck . . . . I certainly do agree that dressing so that you are nie unto disguised, really is a security risk in the Western world.

      I was waited on by a Muslim, Hajaib wearing woman several weeks back, and frankly the experience was not pleasant. In fact I later complained to the Manager regarding the experience. I will never allow her to wait on me again. She can just take care of the Muslime customers.

        • chemtrailssuck . . . . Now I have purchased my medications at this particular Walgreens for three years now, because they will get the Mylan brand of fentanyl patches that I need (other brands have a caustic in the glue that will eat through your skin.) During my trek to the back of the store where the Pharmacy was, I saw one of these “rocker kind of things that you balance on to build up your core” (I had originally saw it on that show where the big entrepreneurs via for investing in new ideas, I thought it was pretty neat at the time.) So, I grabbed one of them as I was about to pickup and pay for my meds. With receipt in hand, along with the balancing board, and the bag with the meds, I said to this Hijab wearing clerk, “I just paid for this (holding the balance board up along with the package of meds) when I paid for my prescriptions. She screamed back at me “I HAVE TO SEE YOUR RECEIPT!” Now, if she had said to me, “Could I please see your receipt,” or “I’m sure you did, but company policy insists that I check receipts.” or some type reply that did not involve yelling at me in front of other customers, I would have been okay. Back in the Pharmacy, the young man knows me by name . . . as a 71 year, old lady, am I really going to try to walk out of the store with a huge plastic thing in my hand (kind of think the size of a skate board.) I had to ask myself, if I had been a Hajaib wearing, brownish skin toned woman . . . rather than a rather pale Caucasian woman . . . would she have treated me in the same hostile manner she did? In my heart I think not. This was as much a signature move to show hostility towards me, as an infidel, rather than to catch a likely shop lifter. Perhaps others will think I was overly sensitive, but to have a store clerk yell at you, does not really show any degree of customer appreciation. I presented my receipt, which showed that I had indeed paid for the item back in the Pharmacy.

          I don’t want to be treated in that manner by any store clerk, for any reason, and I’m not about to cut her any slack!

            For some reason I get the feeling that they think they are superior and disgusted with us. That is an utterly bizarre attitude.

  15. The sad thing is that a few short years ago, American women could wear headscarves and warm headwraps without being thought a Muslim, and now we can’t really do that anymore. In the winter, I appreciate a good warm scarf that can cover my head and neck. Now people look at me funny and seem relieved when I take it off inside a warm store.
    I can think of other ladies that could don a headscarf, the older women, Catholic ladies, Mexican ladies, and there are many non Muslim cultures that wore headscarves. Now, it’s just creepy.

    • whisperingsage1 . . . . I certainly do remember going off to grade school in the 1950’s with a wool scarf which had been folded in half and tied under my chin (like a babushka). It was quite nice and warm. But, as you say in this day and age people just don;t dare dress like that. Although, I have seen some of the Romanian women from Southeast Portland wearing headscarfs. It’s more like they have adopted the Russian peasant look from the 1950’s. In those instances people don’t seem to care as much.

I cut up my card 3-4 years ago, over something that didn’t sit right with me . . . and now I can’t remember what it was! Macy’s just doesn’t seem to be able to get it right with the majority of folks out there in the purchasing public.

        These outfits aren’t making “business decisions”. They are pushing politics and social engineering memes.

  19. Having encountered some interesting connections between Macy’s / Marshall Field’s and the eugenics movement long ago, I did a bit more digging today on the matter to see what I could find. Following are some interesting things that I’ve learned.

    Marshall Field (1834-1906) founded Marshall Field & Co. department stores. As a philanthropist, he provided funding for the Field Museum of Natural History (which is a clue to his ties to the Malthusian conservationists). Additionally, he was “a very active member of the Jekyll Island Club” which played a role in creating the Federal Reserve.

    Marshall Field III was heir to the Marshall Field & Co. fortune when his grandfather died. As it turns out, he was one of the leading U.S. enthusiasts and financial backers of Benito Mussolini. The Field family were strong supporters of the American eugenics movement with Marshall Field III being a member of the American Eugenics Society. He and his wife, along with the Vanderbilts and Morgans helped to fund the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as well as Charles B. Davenport’s Eugenics Records Office which existed at the core of the eugenics movement. Also of interest, Marshal Fields III was a leading financial supporter and founding board member of Saul Alinsky’s community organizing network, Industrial Areas Foundation (for more on this connection, see “A Profile of Chicago’s Marshall Field Clan” here: http://www.larouchepub.com/eiw/public/1983/eirv10n06-19830215/eirv10n06-19830215_055-a_profile_of_chicagos_marshall_f.pdf).

    Macys Inc. acquired Marshall Field stores in 2005. This marriage was clearly made in heaven for Macy’s has very similar ties to the Malthusian conservation and eugenics movements. For examples of the latter connection, see the greenie-related statements made throughout their annual report: https://www.macysinc.com/assets/docs/for-investors/annual-report/2012_fact_book.pdf. Note that this PDF establishes the link between Macy’s retailer and the Macy’s Foundation (which I couldn’t find documented anywhere else). As for the former connections, although the Macy Foundation also has eugenics (more accurately, “Malthusian”) related ties, the most interesting that I found is mentioned by Anton Chaitkin in “British Psychiatry: From Eugenics to Assassination”, in which he more or less states that the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation (or the “Macy Foundation”) had served as the conduit through which LSD was popularized in the U.S. (see http://www.larouchepub.com/eiw/public/1994/eirv21n40-19941007/eirv21n40-19941007_028-british_psychiatry_from_eugenics.pdf). It seems that Macy’s was a retail front for the intelligence community long before Amazon came along.

    It makes perfect sense that Macy’s is now catering to the leftists in the selling of Muslim apparel. They’ve apparently endorsed every other leftist cause — why stop now? Next, they’ll be selling a line of Antifa wear and pre-charred American flags (assuming they’re not already).

  20. The shopping mall and Macy’s at the CA coastal town in which my husband has one of his offices, as well as taught as an adjunct at the local college there, has been overrun with muslims. (Only 5 out of more than 40 surnames in my husband’s last class were NOT middle-eastern ). Whether Macy’s sells hijabs or not here—-this particular Macy’s is closing. The mall is well-known for being a “social-gathering-place” for muslim women…who congregate, but buy little. I suspect that this propensity must be behind the last-grab-effort of anchor stores like Macy’s to stay alive in these sorts of malls. The “congregating” of these muslims in the mall also discourages others, non-muslim women esp….from shopping there. They are there in numbers, while, typically, “regular” American or Americanized shoppers travel solo or in pairs……very “foreign” and intimidating when they are all traveling in a “masked” & “costumed” group. Who knows what they have/carry under those coverings? Rightly or not….I don’t want to be in a public place with people who are covered head-to-toe…or even less. This is So. Cal….warm most of the year…with no need to cover heads/faces, shoulders……even in a modified muslim-wear. In fact, it’s probably oppressive to do so. But, they do, and then, I don’t know if they are men or women….or if they are carrying weapons or explosives….I stopped going there years ago and probably haven’t been to any other “mall” more than once a year elsewhere. I shop local, smaller venues…and of course, Amazon…..and guess what? The world has not ended b/c I do not go to Macy’s or the mall……but, MACY’S at this particular mall HAS ENDED. I guess there were a LOT of other “customers” out there just like me.
