The garment is woven and features a detachable fake fur trimmed hood, a stand up collar , a full front zippered opening beginning at the top of the stand up collar, a three button front self fabric tab closure, long sleeves with elasticized cuffs and button tab closure, a drawstring waist, two slash front pockets, and a velcro like closure at the front of the hemmed bottom.

You state in your letter that the jacket will be imported in girls' sizes 4-6X.

We are returning you sample as you requested.

The rate of duty will be 29.3% ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 635. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of the are presently subject to visa requirements and 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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
