RE: The tariff classification of a man's shirt-style jacket from Hong Kong

Dear Mr. Johnson:

In your letter dated June 10, 1992, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 75456-4159, is a man's shirt-style jacket. The jacket is composed of a woven 100% cotton black denim fabric.

The shirt-style jacket has a full front opening secured by seven metal snaps. There is a shirt-style collar, shirt-style bottom hem, long sleeves with snap cuffs and two chest pockets with flaps secured by a snap closure.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6201.92.2050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other men's anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles, of cotton. The duty rate will be 10 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 334. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong are not presently subject to quota restraints but a visa is required.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of international bilateral agreements which are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes, to obtain the most current information available, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the Status Report on Current Import Quotas (Restraint Levels), an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available for inspection at your local Customs office.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
