Cadillac makes fine luxury performance automobiles. They do not make clothing, purses, shoes, belt buckles, floor mats, etc. Cadillac DOES license their logo and trademarks to select Merchants who want to produce items with the Cadillac wreath and crest or other trademarks under license. This is a win-win situation, as it allows Cadillac lovers like me to have Cadillac hats, or jackets, or shirt to wear. It also helps let other people know you love Cadillacs, so it helps indirectly to sell cars.
How can you tell if something is made by Cadillac or someone else?
If it is a Cadillac vehicle, it is made by Cadillac. If it is anything else, it is probably made under license from Cadillac, and should have a tag or other indication that this is the fact. If you see a Cadillac logo item for sale that is NOT marked “GM Official Licensed Product” or similar, skip it.
Occasionally one can also find items, such as a copy of a jersey for ‘Cadillac’ Williams, or these “Cadillac Gloves” that have little to do directly with Cadillac at all. In the latter case, the gloves claim to be “the Cadillac of gloves”, hence the name.

@Caddyinfo the purses are awesome. Made a great gift last year for my mom who owns a Cadillac. She always gets compliments on it.
