RE: The tariff classification of a man's shirt from Honduras and the Dominican Republic.

Dear Ms. Held:

In your letter dated November 10, 1997, you requested a classification ruling.

Your submitted sample, style 6600 is a man's 100% cotton twill woven shirt. The garment features long sleeves with 3 buttons on the cuff, a collar, a camouflage print, a full frontal opening secured with a covered six button closure, two breast patch pockets with buttoned flaps, two flapped buttoned pockets below the waist and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for style 6600, will be 6205.20.2065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men's or boys' shirts: of cotton: other, other: other: other: men's. The duty rate will be 20.6 percent ad valorem.

Style 6600 falls within textile category designation 340. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of the Dominican Republic are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa. Products of Honduras are not subject to quota and visa.

The designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. 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 the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Gerard Shea at 212-466-5878.
