RE: The tariff classification of a man's shirt from Guatemala.

Dear Mr. Shapiro:

In your letter dated November 5, 1997, on behalf of Lucia, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Your submitted sample, style L524-909 is a man's 55% cotton and 45% polyester woven shirt. The garment features long sleeves, a snap cuff, a sleeve opening with a snap, a collar, a full frontal opening secured with a seven snap closure, two breast patch pockets with snapped flaps and a curved hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for style L524-909, 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 L524-909 falls within textile category designation 340. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Guatemala are subject to quota and the requirement of a 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.
