Dov Charney is a Classy Businessman

Stay Classy, Dov.

American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney is apparently facing a $260 million dollar lawsuit this week alleging that he pressured a former teenage employee to engage in lewd sexual acts with him in order to keep her job at the fashion retailer. It’s gotta be the shocker of the year that the man who markets his business by taking back alley photographs of sex starved teenagers in spread eagle positions while wearing nothing but underwear in order to sell his products would turn out to be a creep. Is it just me, or should the mustache have been the first clue?

Sex scandal aside, they do have some great high waisted shorts.

N.B. The Manolo has asked his friend Trisha Marie to help him from time to time. This is the first of her contributions.

Guest Posting at the Shoe Blog of the Manolo

Manolo says, things have grown stale at the blog of the Manolo.

The Manolo is in the rut.

And so, to liven things up the bit, the Manolo would like to invite his internet friends to consider contributing the guest post or two the Manolo’s humble shoe blog.

It does not matter if you are the fashion blogger, or the non-blogger, the Manolo would love to see what his internet friends have to say about such topics as shoes, runway trends, fashion history, shoes, celebrity misadventure, shoes, indeed almost any topic that is not overtly political, or overly controversial. All the Manolo asks is that the contribution be thoughtful and moderately entertaining to his readers.

If you would like to do this please send the Manolo the email telling him what you would like to make the guest post about.
