RE: The tariff classification of a men's padded, sleeveless jacket to be manufactured in Thailand

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated August 8, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, designated style number 17606, is a men's padded, sleeveless jacket manufactured from a 60% wool, 20% mohair, 20% nylon woven fabric. The garment has a full lining of a 100% wool woven fabric. Between the outer shell and lining is quilted a layer of an unspecified textile fiber filling.

The garment features a full frontal opening secured by a coarse-toothed plastic zipper, a left breast patch pocket, two front patch pockets below the waist, two and one-quarter inch side seam vents, and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6201.91.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for men's or boys' padded, sleeveless jackets, of wool or fine animal hair. The applicable rate of duty is 15.3%, ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 459. Based on international textile trade agreements, products of Thailand are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. 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.

The sample is being returned to you, as requested.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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.
