RE: The tariff classification of men's knit garments from India.

Dear Mr. Nadgar:

In your letter dated October 6, 1995, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The pullover features a rib knit crew neckline; short sleeves with rib knit cuffs; a wide, loose fitting body; side slits; and a hemmed bottom. Styles BB and BB1 are men's pants constructed from 100 percent cotton, jersey knit fabric. The pants feature a covered elastic tunnel waistband with an outside drawstring; a one button fly front opening; two side seam pockets; and tunnel elastic at the ankles. A one and one-half inch wide woven fabric overlay covers the elastic waistband.

The pullover falls within textile category designation 338 and the pants fall within textile category designation 347. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India 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 attached to 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.
