RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit shirt from China. Dear Mr. Sun:

In your letter, dated February 8, 1999, and in your re- submission dated February 22, 1999, you requested a tariff classifi?cation ruling on behalf of Sucraft, Inc. As requested, the sample will be returned.

Style Thermal Henley is a men’s shirt constructed from 100 percent cotton, waffle knit fabric which measures 13 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the horizontal direction and 15 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the vertical direction. The garment features a rib knit Henley neckline; a partial front opening with a three button placket; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; and a hemmed bottom with side slits.

Thw applicable subheding for Style Thermal Henley will be 6105.10.0010, Har?monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: men’s or boys’ shirts, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: men’s. The duty rate will be 20.4 percent ad valorem.

Style Thermal Henley falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon in?ter?national textile trade agree?ments, products of China 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.
