RE: The tariff classification of man's cotton woven jacket from Singapore

Dear Mr. Imbrogulio:

In your letter dated September 10, 1998 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The garment submitted for a ruling, Style J8950 HECA, will be returned as you requested.

Style # J8950 HECA is a man's woven jacket made from 100% cotton fabric. The jacket is unlined and features long sleeves, hemmed cuffs and bottom, full frontal opening with a covered placket and five button fasteners. It has a shirt type collar, one small breast pocket and two waist slash pockets covered by large button-flap barn pockets. It also has a flap button back pocket that spans the entire bottom half of the back panel. The garment has underarm eyelet type venting.

The applicable subheading for the jacket style # J8950 HECA will be 6201.92.2051, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Men's or boys' overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks, anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles (including padded, sleeveless jackets), other than those of heading 6203: Anoraks, etc.: Of cotton: Other: Other: Other: Men's. The duty rate will be 9.8%.

Style # J8950 HECA falls within textile category designation 334. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Singapore 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.
