American Apparel CEO bemoans war on leggings1/30/2013
America is embroiled in a great culture war. And while it's easy to think it's over something as divisive as immigration or abortion, this fight is over … leggings. Yes, leggings. Schools in Vermont and Pennsylvania have banned students from wearing the skin-tight garments, but Dov Charney, the CEO of American Apparel and one of the largest manufacturers of leggings, says the fight is nothing new. "There’s always going to be a tug of war of young people wanting to wear certain things and perhaps the academic institutions wanting them to wear other things," Charney said. Charney noted that denim jeans were banned from schools in the '60s and '70s just in case you were inclined to roll your eyes over this perceived struggle. Good thing we don't have bigger problems at hand. [Source]
