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

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated July 7, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 8B920 is a man's one piece step-in garment constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit fabric. The garment features a rib knit Henley neckline; a front opening to the waist with five button closures; a woven fabric half-moon at the inside rear neckline; long, hemmed sleeves; and hemmed leg openings.

Your sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for Style 8B920 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 11.4 percent ad valorem.

Style 8B920 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 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, these rulings should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
