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

Dear Mr. Bennett:

In your letter dated May 11, 1998, and in subsequent correspondence dated May 27, 1998 and June 15, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of I.C. Isaacs & Co., L/P. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Item H1566G "Aeroglider" is a men's garment constructed from 100 percent cotton, interlock knit fabric which measures 24 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Item H1566G "Aeroglider" is loose fitting and features a full front opening with a zippered closure; a rib knit spread collar; a patch pocket on the left chest; long, hemmed sleeves; and a straight, hemmed bottom with side slits. There is a fabric label sewn to the chest pocket.

You state that the garment is intended for sale as an outer garment similar to a sweater. Consequently, the applicable subheading for Item H1566G "Aeroglider" will be 6110.20.2065, Har
monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Item H1566G "Aeroglider" falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agree
ments, products of the Philippines are subject to a visa require
ment 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 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-
