Pirate Capital Loses Place on Cutter & Buck (CBUK) Board

In a recent filing with the SEC, Cutter & Buck (Nasdaq: CBUK) noted that former Pirate Capital analyst David A. Lorber informed them of his decision to withdraw as a nominee for Director at the upcoming Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on October 19, 2006.

The Board does not intend to present a replacement nominee.

Lorber was one of the casualties of Pirate's recent shake-up.

Thomas O'Riordan, an industry expert recommended by Pirate, is still a nominee.

Mr. O'Riordan is a consultant to the footwear, apparel and sporting goods industries and was recently a senior executive anddirector with Fila. Mr O'Riordan is also a member of the Board of Directors of Innovo Group (Nasdaq: INNO), a publicly traded apparel company.

According to a recent filing, Pirate owns a 13.5% stake (1.4M shares) in Cutter & Buck.
