RE: The tariff classification of a man's jacket from the People's Republic of China and Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Murphy:

In your letter dated March 11, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style "Wilderness Jacket" is a man's knit jacket constructed from fabric consisting of an outer layer of a 100 percent polyester, finely knit pile fabric which is napped on the outside surface, a middle layer of a bonded, breathable, blown film membrane, and a layer of a 100 percent polyester, dropped stitch, brushed knit fabric. The garment features a full front, zippered opening; a convertible collar; long sleeves with elasticized capping at the cuffs; two zippered slash pockets below the waist; a woven fabric overlay on the shoulders and on the front and rear yokes; and elasticized capping at the bottom.

As requested, your sample will be returned.

The applicable subheading for Style "Wilderness Jacket" will be 6101.30.2010, Har- monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: men's or boys' overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks, anoraks (including ski-jackets), wind-breakers and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, other than those of heading 6103: of man-made fibers: other: other: men's. The duty rate will be 29.5 percent ad valorem.

Style "Wilderness Jacket" falls within textile category designation 634. Based upon inter- national textile trade agreements, products of the People's Republic of China and Taiwan 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 Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter or the control number indicated above should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-466-5877.
