Macy’s Celebrates the Divine Nine with New Menswear Collection & $3M in Donations


May 3, 2024

From Alpha to Iota, they’re making sure our fraternity men look dapper!

Today, Macy’s announced the launch of an exclusive menswear collection dedicated to the prestigious fraternities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), known as the Divine Nine.

This move builds upon Macy’s successful collaboration with the Divine Nine’s sorority counterparts in 2022, which offered stylish apparel designed for their signature events. Now, brothers can proudly represent their organizations with a versatile collection inspired by the signature colors of Alpha Phi Alpha, Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi, Phi Beta Sigma, and Iota Phi Theta.

The collection, ranging from polos and blazers to cardigans and accessories, empowers these esteemed gentlemen to express their individuality while staying true to their fraternity’s legacy. Prices start at a budget-friendly $49, making it accessible to a wide range of members. The collection will be available online and in select Macy’s stores by July 2024.

“As a proud member of The Divine Nine, I am thrilled to provide members with a collection that reflects their organization’s mission and history while empowering members to express their personal style,” says Elwyn Mapps, Macy’s vice president of men’s sportswear and a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity.


This partnership goes beyond stylish threads. Through their “Mission Every One” social purpose platform, Macy’s is committing a staggering $3 million in donations to various foundations identified by the Divine Nine Fraternities. This commitment extends to the previously launched sorority collection, with $1.75 million already donated to support the education and research initiatives of Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho Sororities.

Macy’s commitment doesn’t end there. They plan to work hand-in-hand with these organizations to explore further avenues of support, ensuring the Divine Nine can continue their vital missions of academic excellence, community service, and brotherhood for generations to come.
