Item 5.04.  Temporary Suspension of Trading Under Registrant’s Employee Benefit Plans.
     By notice dated November 9, 2007, CitiStreet sent the employees of Hanesbrands Inc. (“Hanesbrands”) a notice informing them that activity in the Hanesbrands Inc. Retirement Savings Plan will be closed for participant transactions (i.e., investment election changes, loans, and distributions). The blackout period is necessary for the plan to be transferred to CitiStreet as the new record keeper and will have the effect of preventing participants from effecting transactions in the Hanesbrands Inc. Common Stock Fund. The blackout period will begin on December 27, 2007, and will end the week of January 7, 2008.
     In connection with the blackout period, Hanesbrands will send a notice to its directors and executive officers informing them that during the blackout period, pursuant to Section 306 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and Hanesbrands’ insider trading policy, they will be unable to trade in Hanesbrands’ common stock (or related securities). During the blackout period and for a two-year period thereafter, information about the actual beginning and ending dates of the blackout period may be obtained, without charge, by calling 1-877-HBI-2345 (1-877-424-2345). For more information about the blackout period, please contact Senior Manager, Corporate Benefits Planning & Communications at 1-336-519-4347.
