The garment has a full-front zipper opening covered by a placket with six snap closures, long sleeves with adjustable snap closures, two front cargo pockets located beneath the waist, a zippered breast pocket, a hood with drawstring and a drawstring at the waist. The samples are being returned as requested.

Style 1057725 falls within textile category designation 339. Style 1057766HSP falls within textile category designation 335. As products of Macau, this merchandise is subject to quota and visa requirements based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be sub- divided 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations.

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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
