RE: The tariff classification of a man's knit garment from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Rutt:

In your letter dated July 16, 1992, resubmitted on August 21, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Brawn of California dba International Male.

Style No. A579, which you identify as a "Shoulder Strap Boxer", is a man's step-in garment which is constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit fabric. The garment features an elasticized waistband with no opening; an unsecured fly front; short pant legs which are finished with elasticized rib knit capping; straps which measure two and one-quarter inches wide at the shoulder; a two inch wide cross strap at the center back; and a fabric label which reads "Tactics Sports" located at the center front of the waistband.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6114.20.0055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: other garments, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 11.5 percent ad valorem.

This garment falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements.

The designated textile and apparel category 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 in- spection 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 already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
