RE: The tariff classification of a pair of woman's pants, from Peru.

Dear Mr. Persily:

In your letter dated April 5, with additional information provided on June 30, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of J. Crew Group, Inc. The sample is being returned, as you requested.

The submitted garment, style 32624, is constructed from 100% cotton waffle knit fabric. The garment is a pair of woman's pull-on pants with an elasticized waistband. You have referred to the garment as a skinner/leggings, and have indicated that it will be worn to lounge in around the home.

The applicable subheading for style 32624 will be 6104.62.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit trousers of cotton. The rate of duty will be 16.5 percent ad valorem.

Style 32624 falls within textile category designation 348. Based upon international textile trade agreements, garments imported from Peru are subject to a visa requirement.

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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
