RE: The tariff classification of a man's pair of woven shorts from Sri Lanka.

Dear Mr. Stango:

In your letter dated October 11, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style No. 3650 is a man's pair of shorts constructed from 100 percent cotton, woven fabric. The sample features a fully elasticized waistband with no break and a fly with one button closure.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6203.42.4050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: men's or boy's suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts: of cotton: other: other: shorts: men's. The duty rate will be 17.7 percent ad valorem.

These shorts fall within textile category designation 347. Based upon in- ternational textile trade agreements, products of Sri Lanka are subject to a visa requirement 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.
