RE: The tariff classification of a mens reversible jacket from China

Dear Mr. Lee:

In your letter dated November 10, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Marshall Gobuty Intl Inc.

The submitted sample, style 3011, is a mens outerwear reversible jacket which is made up of 100% nylon woven fabric on one side and 100% polyester knit fabric on the other side. The polyester side is coated on the outer surface with polyurethane, which completely obscures the underlying fabric. The nylon fabric is coated on the inner surface. The jacket features a full front opening secured by a zipper, a drawstring hood with a Velcro closure, long sleeves with elastic and a Velcro closure, and a drawstring bottom. The polyester side has two half welt pockets below the waist and the nylon side has two pockets with zipper closures below the waist.

As requested, your sample will be returned to you.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6201.93.3000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), if it passes the water resistance test. The rate of duty will be 7.4%. If the garment does not pass the water resistance test, the applicable subheading will be 6201.93.3511, HTS, which provides for mens man-made fiber anoraks, other. The rate of duty will be 28.8%.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 634. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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.
