Dov Charney Is Already Recruiting Former American Apparel Employees

“Come help me,” he said to cut workers at American Apparel’s Los Angeles HQ.

News broke over the weekend that American Apparel would be closing down 110 U.S. retail locations. On Monday the company made 2,400 employee cuts. Workers who arrived to the Los Angeles HQ were directed to collect their last paycheck.

“They told us no more jobs. That’s it,” one worker told WWD. “Everybody’s very, very upset. It’s a difficult situation.”

Meanwhile ex-CEO Dov Charney was on location to spread word about his new T-shirt company. “Come help me,” he told the workers and when asked how many people he could hire, responded that the “number was in the dozens.”

Charney’s new company will reportedly be named That’s Los Angeles by Dov Charney. Just like at American Apparel, he’s got plans to produce in the U.S. He once told South China Morning Post: “It’s highly efficient to make clothing here, but a lot of people don’t understand how to do it… American manufacturing is underrated.”

Stay tuned. More new about American Apparel’s shutdown will come.
