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

Dear Mr. Kamnitz:

In your letter dated June 26, 1995, on behalf of your client, Polo Ralph Lauren, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 0114580 PO 71328 is a men's pullover sweater constructed from 100 percent cotton knit fabric which measures 8 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The sweater features long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; a partial front opening with two button closures; a rib knit neckband; and a rib knit waistband.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading provision for Style 0114580 PO 71328 will be 6110.20.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted and crocheted, of cotton: other: other: sweaters: men's. The general rate of duty will be 20.3 percent ad valorem.

Style number 0114580 PO 71328 falls within textile category designation 345. 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 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 s

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.
