RE: The tariff classification of a men's knit garment from China.

Dear Mr. Malloy:

In your letter dated October 16, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style B2BF304 is a men's pullover garment constructed from 80 percent polyester, 20 percent cotton, finely knit fabric which is napped on the inside surface. The fabric measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style B2BF304 features a partial front opening with three snap closures; a stand up collar with two snap closures; a zippered pouch in the rear collar; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; two slash pockets below the waist; a zippered, inset pocket on the left chest; and a rib knit bottom with a zippered opening on the left side. The lower portion of the front panel is lined with woven fabric.

The applicable subheading for Style B2BF304 will be 6110.30.3050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 33.3 percent ad valorem.

Style B2BF304 falls within textile category designation 638. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to a visa requirement and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since 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 this ruling letter or the control number listed above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-466-5877.
