“It really opened my eyes to the possibilities.  They’re displaying Tommy right up there with Ralph Lauren.”

Finding every avenue possible to keep building his empire, Sean “Diddy” Combs has partnered up with Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren to sign an exclusive deal with Macy’s.

Now having a distribution deal with the department store, Combs will have yet another outlet to showcase his Sean John brand in men’s sportswear.

During a press event Wednesday, the man behind Bad Boy stated that Sean John has “done more than $1 billion of business at Macy’s, and we plan to do a couple billion more.”

Starting exclusively at 400 stores, they hope to extend it out to all stores, according to Chief Merchandising Officer Jeff Gennette.

By Spring 2011, Sean John men’s sportswear will only be featured in Macy’s.

Diddy reflected back on his history/upbringing with the store before he became known as the mogul in the shiny suit.

“I got my start at Macy’s when I was 16, selling shirts and ties,” Combs told The Post in an interview, adding that he had worked at the New Rochelle, NY, store. “To come full circle like this is a dream come true.”

Well folks, he keeps saying it so it must be true.  “Can’t stop, won’t stop…ehh ehh, ehh ehh”
