RE: The tariff classification of a man's jacket from China

Dear Ms. Boyce:

In your letter dated February 23, 1998, on behalf of DKNY Mens division of the Donna Karen Company, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number K38201E7B, is a man's pullover constructed of an outershell composed of a woven quilted 100% nylon fabric which has a visible polyurethane coating on the outer surface. The coating does not completely obscure the underlying fabric. The garment is lined with a woven nylon fabric and has a down fill.

The jacket features an integral hood which is lined with a knit polyester fleece fabric. There is a partial opening at the neck secured by a zipper closure, elasticized sleeve cuffs with "VELCRO"-type fasteners, two front pockets with snap closures located at the waist, a zipper opening on the left side seam and a drawcord tightening through the bottom hem. There are two reflective strips on the lower portion of each sleeve which have the "DKNY" logo.

The sample is being returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6210.40.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: other men's or boys' garments: of man-made fibers: other anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles. The duty rate will be 7.4 percent ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 634. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are presently subject to quota restraints 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 W. Raftery at 212-466-5851.
