Having his DNA, in all of its many forms, all over American Apparel isn’t enough for its former CEO. So even if the last alternative investor he worked with to take the power back disappointed him with a pink slip, he’s not going to let it stop him from trying again.

American Apparel Inc. founder Dov Charney, who was fired by the company this week, is working with private-equity firm Irving Place Capital on a bid to acquire the retailer, according to a person familiar with the situation….

If Irving Place can reach a deal, it would lead to the 45-year-old Charney returning to the company in some capacity, one of the people said.
