RE: The tariff classification of men's knit pants from Pakistan.

Dear Ms. Singer:

In your letter dated January 15, 1999, you requested a tariff classifi?cation ruling on behalf of Host Apparel, Inc. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style IR 01531 is a pair of men’s pants constructed from 100 percent cotton, jersey knit fabric. The pants feature an elasticized waistband with an inside drawstring; side seam pockets; and hemmed leg openings.

The applicable subheading for Style IR 01531 will be 6103.42.1020, Har?monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: men’s or boys’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): knitted or crocheted: of cotton: trousers and breeches: men’s. The rate of duty will be 16.6 percent ad valorem.

Style IR 01531 falls within textile category designation 347. Based upon in?ter?national textile trade agree?ments, products of Pakistan are subject to a visa re?quire?ment and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the sub?ject mer?chan?dise may be affected. Since part categories are the result of in?ter??na?tion??al bilateral agreements which are sub?ject to frequent re?ne?go?ti?a?tions 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?spec?tion 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 docu?ments filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-637-7081.
