RE: The tariff classification of a man's knit shirt from Macau.

Dear Ms. Han:

In your letter dated April 22, 1993, you requested a tariff classifica- tion ruling on behalf of J. Crew, Inc.

Style number 49773E is a man's Henley shirt which is constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit, 1x1 rib knit fabric that measures more than ten stitches per linear centimeter counted in both the horizontal and verti- cal directions. The garment features a three button, left over right placket; a rib knit neckband; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; and a hemmed bottom.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6105.10.0010, Har- monized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: men's or boys' shirts, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: men's. The duty rate will be 21 percent ad valorem.

This garment falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Macau 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 mer- chandise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of interna- tional 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.
