RE: The tariff classification of a boys' knit jacket from Macau, and a man's woven shirt from China.

Dear Mr. Tolentino:

In your letter dated August 23, 1995, on behalf of Marshall Gobuty International, USA, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 1595 is a boys' jacket constructed from finely knit fabric. The body of the garment is 65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton and the sleeves are 73 percent polyester, 15 percent cotton, and 12 percent rayon. The garment is fully lined with 100 percent nylon woven fabric. Style 1595 features long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; a rib knit baseball collar; a full front opening with six metal snap closures; an inner chest pocket on the left side; and a rib knit waistband.

Style 1558 is a man's woven pullover shirt constructed from 100 percent nylon fabric. The garment features long sleeves with a one button snap closure at the cuffs; a partial front opening with a zipper closure; a self fabric spread collar; a patch pocket on the left chest with a flap, secured by velcro; two side slits; and a hemmed bottom.

As requested, your samples will be returned.

The applicable subheading for Style 1595 will be 6101.30.2020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: overcoats, .... windbreakers, and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, other than those of heading 6103: of man-made fibers: other: other: boys'. The duty rate will be 29.8 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for Style 1558 will be 6205.30.2070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: men's or boys' shirts: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: other: men's. The duty rate will be 30.7 cents/kg plus 27.3 percent ad valorem.

Style 1595 falls within textile category designation 634. Style 1558 falls within textile category designation 640. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Macau and China are 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 or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-466-5877.
