Our critical shopper sibling over at Consumerist got a copy of the 2005 resignation letter from an American Apparel employee. We'll toss the entire thing after the jump (it's loooong, and the spelling is intermittently correct), but here's our favorite part:
The stores have lost concept and look like flea markets, your products have lost quality, and your business ethics are being erased and replaced with the usual corporate shtick- in short, you are well on your way to becoming another institution, and your outrageous company has become horribly predictable.
Unverified reports suggest that immediately upon receiving the letter AA founder Dov Charney fucked the envelope in which it came.
