RE: The tariff classification of soccer pants from Indonesia.

Dear Ms. Salisbury:

In your letter dated October 22, 1997, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Fraje, Ltd.

Representative samples of style #100020, Goalie Short, #100030, Goalie Pant, and a detailed description and illustration of #996901, Goalie Knicker, were submitted for our examination. They are loose-fitting men's soccer goalie pants in various lengths, and are made from 80% polyester/20% cotton knit fabric. Each style features an elastic waist with a textile cord tie, textile covered foam padding sewn in over the hip area, and #'s 100030 and 996901 incorporate that same padding at the knees. The -length knickers have rib knit leg cuffs and the full length model features stirrups.

The applicable subheading for style #'s 100020, 100030, and 996901, soccer goalie pants, will be 6114.30.3060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States(HTS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Other... Other: Men's or boys'... The rate of duty will be 15.7 percent ad valorem.

The pants fall within textile category designation 659. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia 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 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 been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
