RE: The tariff classification of leather work gloves from China.

In your letter dated January 22, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Midwest Quality Glove, Inc.

You submitted a pair of work gloves representing style # 7759 for our examination. They feature gunn-cut construction, a full cowhide leather palm and thumb, additional leather reinforcements over the palm, thumb, first finger, knuckle area, inside base of the wrist, and finger tips. The back of the glove is made from a heavy woven cotton material which incorporates an internal elasticized tightener strip over the wrist. The extended gauntlet is made from a stiff, multi-layered woven cotton fabric, and there is fleeced interlock fabric inner lining on the palm side.

The applicable subheading for the style # 7759, work glove, will be 4203.29.1800, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Articles of apparel and clothing accessories, of leather or composition leather: Gloves, mittens and mitts: Other: Gloves of horsehide or cowhide (except calfskin) leather: Other: Other.... The rate of duty will be 14 percent ad valorem.

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.
