Dear Ms. Brandenburger:

The cardigan-styled garment is tunic length and extends from the neck to approximately mid-thigh of the wearer. The garment features a pointed collar, a full frontal opening secured by nine button closures, long sleeves, pockets below the waist, and side seam vents at the straight hemmed bottom.

The submitted sample will be returned under separate cover.

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.
