Diddy's first job was working at Macy's, and now he's signed an exclusive deal with the company, which will soon become the only department store to carry Sean John menswear. Apparently, he was inspired by seeing Tommy Hilfiger at Macy's, telling the Post, "It really opened my eyes to the possibilities. They're displaying Tommy right up there with Ralph Lauren." Discussing the deal, Diddy also told the Cut that his clothing transcends the "urban" category, explaining, "Christian Louboutin is black, but that doesn't mean his shoes are black. I'm black but my clothes are for everybody." [NYP; The Cut]
