There are two front panels, two side panels and two back panels. Other features include two front pockets below the waist, a notched collar and a lining. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6204.39.6000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for women's suit-type jackets of silk. The duty rate will be 5% ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 735. As a product of Hong Kong, this merchandise is subject to export licensing requirements based upon international textile trade agreements.
