RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Fuse:

In your letter dated June 2, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The provided sample, style 3064, is a men's lightweight gauntlet style ski glove constructed of a woven polyester outershell with a fleece cuff. A leather palm patch overlay extends across the thumb and two fingers. The glove also features a waterproof barrier, insulation, internal knuckle reinforcement, an elasticized wrist, a hook and clasp, a sewn-in man-made fabric lining, and "Gates" embroidered across the backside gauntlet. The glove will also be available in a ladies' version as style 3064W.

The applicable subheading for the gloves will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts.
