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

Dear Mr. Scher:

In your letter dated May 20, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Nautica International. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style S84407 is a men's vest constructed from 100 percent cotton, knit fabric which measures 12 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The vest is sleeveless and features a full front opening with five button closures; a V-neckline; oversized armholes; and a rib knit bottom. There is an embroidered logo on the left chest.

The applicable subheading for Style S84407 will be 6110.20.2030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: vests: other than sweater vests: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 19 percent ad valorem.

Style S84407 falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements 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.
