There's been a Dov Charney sighting in the wild, and guess where he was spotted? An American Apparel store on the Lower East Side. Jen Snow, who works at nearby Russ & Daughters, captured the moment on her Instagram. Her caption says it all: "Dov Charney is in the American Apparel store on East Houston Street. I asked the employees at the counter if it was him, and one nodded 'yes' tentatively, and the other asked me, 'And how was your day at work?' with an intonation of palpable discomfort." The uneasiness wasn't there just because Charney is creepy; his leaked termination letter bans him from visiting company facilities, including stores. Hey, maybe he was just picking up some piped track shorts.
