SOLIDARITY 1. Unity (as of a group or class) that produces or is based on a community of interests, objectives, and standards:

Tommy Hilfiger is well known for his egalitarian approach to fashion. He started his career in the late 1960s with the People’s Place boutique and launched his eponymous label, inspired by the preppy aesthetic, in 1985. The broad popularity of his sportswear collections, marked by a red, white, and blue palette and branded with an abstracted American flag, reached its apex in the late 1990s. This sweater from that period is emblematic of Hilfiger’s career-long commitment to inclusion, recently expressed through his designs for nonbinary people and adaptive garments.
