An eccentric-looking man was spotted angrily pacing outside American Apparel on the LES Saturday; it turned out the fellow was none other than the clothing chain's founder and CEO Dov Charney. "I noticed a man with thick eyeglasses wearing a blue Member's Only jacket, carrying a denim murse, and generally carrying on like a crazy person. This wasn't especially odd. New York is, after all, filled with crazy people, but there was something about this guy in particular that really creeped me the fuck out and made me take notice. Yes, he was THAT alarming. In addition to the murse and the Member's Only gear, the guy was wearing a headset that he was barking frequently into in a somewhat agitated manner." [Cajun Boy in the City]
