The socks feature designs of baseballs and pennants, with the words "Rah, Go, Win, Team, and Home Run" printed on both sides. The items are knit, and constructed of 65% acrylic, 20% nylon and 15% spandex.

The submitted sample, Style 35474, is a pair of infants' socks. The socks feature a screen pint design of bunnies and easter eggs. The items are knit and constructed of 70% acrylic, 20% nylon and 10% spandex. Thy will be imported in infant hosiery sizes 4 to 5 1/2. The applicable subheading for the toddler's socks, will be 6115.92.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for panty hose, tights, stockings, socks and other hosiery, knitted or crocheted, other, of cotton, other. The rate of duty will be 14.3% ad valorem.

The infant's socks, fall within textile category designation 239. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of Korea are presently subject to quota restraints and visa requirements.

The toddler's socks, fall within textile category designation 332. Based upon textile trade agreements, products of Korea are presently subject to quota restraints and 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 the ruling 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 the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Bruce Kirschner at (212) 466-5865.
