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

Dear Ms. Brown:

In your letter dated May 4, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Augusta Sportswear. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style 3560 is a men's pullover garment constructed from 100 percent polyester, finely knit fabric which is napped on the inside and outside surfaces. The fabric contains more than 9 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style 3560 features a partial front opening with a zipper closure; a convertible collar; long sleeves with elasticized capping; two side entry pockets; and elasticized capping at the bottom.

You have stated that the same garment will be imported in size XXL as Style 3565.

The applicable subheading for Styles 3560 and 3565 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: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 33.3 percent ad valorem.

Styles 3560 and 3565 fall within textile category designation 638. Based upon international textile trade agree
ments, products of Hong Kong 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 in
spection 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 indicated above should be attached to 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.
