HAGGAR ANNOUNCES NEW PRODUCTS FOR SPRING 1994

 DALLAS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Haggar Corp. (NASDAQ: HGGR) introduced new products for the spring 1994 season during its just- concluded national sales meeting.
 J.M. Haggar III, Haggar's president and CEO, stated, "Our extensive consumer research as well as overall industry trends indicate a substantial movement toward comfort and easy care features in men's clothes. This is demonstrated by the immense popularity of casual slacks and by the demand for comfort details in dress apparel. Haggar intends to meet this demand."
 Mr. Haggar continued, "The potential for growth is tremendous in our casual lines. Haggar Wrinkle-Free Cottons(TM) are in great demand, and we are expanding the offering to add three new fabrics (canvas, prairie cloth and gabardine), new styling details, and will also be introducing our first Wrinkle-Free Cottons shorts. Another exciting growth area for the company is our 100 percent cotton sport shirts in woven and knit styles designed to coordinate with Haggar casual slacks and shorts."
 In its dress lines for spring 1994, Haggar has several new offerings. The company, which initiated the custom-fit suit concept, will premiere a new 100 percent pure wool line of custom-fit suits featuring exceptional tailoring details. Haggar will introduce a new line of "Care-Free Comfort" dress slacks which utilize new, easy-care comfortable fabrics and incorporate comfort details throughout the entire garment. Also new in the dress area is the "Action Classics Blazer" which offers comfort and fit features along with wrinkle- resistant performance.
 Haggar will be implementing new product labeling and packaging which is designed to make purchasing decisions easier and faster. Based on consumer research, the new labeling will make it easier for the consumer to understand both fit and care features of the garment. Predominant on the labels will be the "no-iron" and easy care features found in Haggar products.
 The spring 1994 products are currently available to be ordered for delivery beginning in October 1993.
 Haggar is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of men's apparel. The company for many years has been the number one seller of men's dress slacks and is also the market leader in sales of men's custom-fit suits and sportcoats. In addition, the company's product lines include men's casual slacks, shorts and shirts.
