Dov Charney Not Giving Up Push for Comeback at American Apparel

Dov Charney

Former American Apparel CEO Dov Charney is continuing his attempts to return to the company that fired him in December.

According to Women’s Wear Daily, Charney has met with Jay Schottenstein, chairman of American Eagle Outfitters and head of SB Capital Group, and others to discuss ways of making a comeback.

Charney, who is still a shareholder, has been advocating a new approach for the company that involves opening more brick-and-mortar stores, seemingly not discouraged by the fact that he was just fired a few weeks ago, New York Magazine said.

But the company, under new CEO Paula Schneider, appears to be moving on without him, the report said.

Meanwhile, Jezebel.com said “it’s hard not to feel empathetic for the suffering clothing company”, comparing American Apparel to a woman whose ex-boyfriend won’t leave her alone.

“To American Apparel, Dov Charney is just a bad ex-boyfriend. To Dov Charney, American Apparel is the one that got away”, the website said.

    Would love to see interviews with some of the workers who all seemed to love him (they’ve all come out to support Charney http://saveamericanapparel.com ) as well as the board member who decided on the firing
