For now, bid a fond (?) farewell to Trump brand neckties and shirts. A week after Macy's announced that it would be phasing Donald Trump's menswear collection out of its stores — the cause being a slew of racist comments the billionaire made about Mexican immigrants while announcing his presidential candidacy — PVH Corp, which produces said clothing line, said that it is ending its relationship with Trump, too. 

"Mr. Trump and Macy’s have both addressed the discontinuation of the Trump business at Macy’s, which was the exclusive retail account for the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection dress shirt and neckwear collections produced under our license agreement for the brand," a PVH rep wrote in a statement to Fashionista

"We are in the process of winding down this business. The license agreement was scheduled to run through 2018."

In addition to being the parent company of Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, PVH Corp operates a number of celebrity and designer licenses, producing and distributing products associated with names like Ryan Seacrest, Michael Kors, DKNY, Sean "Diddy" Combs and, until now, Trump.
