RE: The tariff classification of a men's pair of knit shorts from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Dubai.

Dear Ms. Glazer:

In your letter dated May 10, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. Host 200 is a pair of men's boxer style shorts which are constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit fabric. The garment features a covered elastic waistband; a front fly opening with a single button closure; and hemmed leg openings.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6103.42.1050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: men's or boys' suits, ensembles, suit- type jackets, blazers, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear), knitted or crocheted: trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts: of cotton: trousers, breeches and shorts: shorts: men's. The duty rate will be 17.1 percent ad valorem.

This garment falls within textile category designation 347. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints. Products of Dubai are presently not subject to visa requirements or quota restraints.

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 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 already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
