Dov Charney is still trying to get back together with American Apparel. Women’s Wear Daily reports that Charney has had conversations with American Eagle Outfitters chairman and SB Capital Group head Jay Schottenstein, among others, in an attempt to regain his foothold at the company. Charney, who is still a shareholder, has been advocating a new approach for the company that involves opening more brick-and-mortar stores — seeming less than discouraged by the fact that he was fired only last month. In layman’s terms, Charney is holding a giant boom box aloft at American Apparel’s window, blasting “In Your Eyes.” But the company, under new CEO Paula Schneider, appears to be moving on — if a bit gingerly — without him.
