                PRUDENTIAL OVERALL SUPPLY COMPLETES
                       NEW LABOR AGREEMENT

  The accord with UNITE HERE is overwhelmingly approved by employees and takes
                              effect immediately

IRVINE, CA. (July 14, 2008) – Prudential Overall Supply, an industry leader in image work
apparel, announced today that it reached a new labor agreement with UNITE HERE that has been
overwhelmingly approved by employees. The agreement takes effect immediately and provides
employees with expanded pay and benefits.

The 3-year contract affects employees in 7 plants, including Van Nuys, Carson, 2 Los Angeles
locations, Cerritos, Riverside, and Vista. It provides employees with pay increases and
enhancements to benefits. The agreement settles all outstanding contract issues between
Prudential and UNITE HERE.

“Prudential Overall Supply has been a family owned and operated employer for more than 75
years and we have always had a strong commitment to our employees,” said Tom Watts,
president of Prudential Overall Supply. “We are one of the highest paying firms in our very
competitive business.

Mr. Watts said that fair dealing with employees is essential to Prudential’s ability to maintain the
high quality of service that customers expect and deserve. He said the company’s commitment to
the best possible work environment shows: Prudential continues to experience among the best
employee retention records in the image work apparel industry.

“It took a lot of hard work and many months to reach this agreement,” said Mr. Watts. He noted
that during the long contract talks, the union sometimes employed tactics that were intended to
upset the business and that this is, unfortunately, to be expected in some contract negotiations.
“We worked hard to minimize the impact on our employees, and I can assure you that it had no
effect on the service we provide to our customers.

Mr. Watts said that as a result of this agreement, UNITE HERE is ending all such efforts and is
now working cooperatively with Prudential to ensure the company’s business remains strong.

“I want to thank all of our customers, friends and associates for their support through this
process,” said Mr. Watts. “We look forward to continuing to serve our customers with the same
high level of service they have always received from Prudential Overall Supply.”
