RE: The tariff classification of a man's woven vest from India.

Dear Mr. Mele:

In your letter dated August 30, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. 602-941463 is a man's vest constructed from 100 percent cotton, woven fabric. The garment features a full front opening with five button closures; a V-neckline; two inset pockets at the waist; and an adjustable belt in the back.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6211.32.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, men's or boys': of cotton: vests. The duty rate will be 8.6 percent ad valorem.

The sample falls within textile category designation 359. 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 should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have already been filed, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
