Item 8.01. Other Events.

In connection with the 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (the “Company”), which is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, June 10, 2009, the Company has received feedback from a few institutional investors who assert that one of the Company’s directors, John W. Kessler, should not be considered independent and should not serve on the Company’s independent director committees.

Mr. Kessler is the Company’s longest serving outside director, having been a member of the Board of Directors since 1998 when the Company was spun off from its former parent. His service to the Company has been distinguished, and his efforts on the Company’s behalf have been tireless. In conformity with the rules of the New York Stock Exchange, the Board of Directors has affirmatively determined that Mr. Kessler has no material relationship with the Company and is, therefore, “independent” within the meaning of those rules.

Nevertheless, in light of the investor feedback, Mr. Kessler has unilaterally determined that he will resign from the Board’s Nominating and Board Governance Committee and from the Compensation Committee effective immediately. Mr. Kessler will continue to serve on the Board of Directors and on the Board’s Executive Committee.
