RE: The tariff classification of a woman's nightgown from Portugal

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated April 15, 1996, you requested a classification ruling. The sample submitted with your request will be returned to you under separate cover.

Style 81874 is a nightgown constructed from 100 percent cotton yarn dyed flannel woven fabric. The slip-styled garment features a scoop neckline, spaghetti straps and a flared body. The garment extends from the shoulders to approximately mid-
thigh. You state that the garment will be advertised in the J. Crew catalog in the sleepwear section and that the fabric and construction of the garment indicate that it will be used as sleepwear.

The applicable subheading for style 81874 will be 6208.21.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's or girls' singlets and other undershirts, slips, petticoats, briefs, panties, nightdresses, pajamas, negligees, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: nightdresses and pajamas: of cotton: with two or more colors in the warp and/or the filling. The duty rate will be 9.4 percent ad valorem.

Style 81874 falls within textile category designation 351. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Portugal are currently not subject to quota restraints or a visa requirement.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at (212) 466 - 5866.
