RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit garment from Korea.

Dear Mr. Walton:

In your letter dated March 25, 1999, you requested a tariff classifi?cation ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style 4170F9 569 is a men’s garment constructed from 60 percent acrylic, 40 percent polyester, finely knit fabric which is heavily napped on the outside surface. The fabric measures 12 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style 4170F9 569 features a full front opening with a zipper closure; a convertible collar; long sleeves with elastic binding at the cuffs; two zippered pockets below the waist; and a straight, hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for Style 4170F9 569 will be 6110.30.3050, Har?monized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: other: men's or boys'. The duty rate will be 33.1 percent ad valorem.

Style 4170F9 569 falls within textile category designation 638. Based upon in?ter?national textile trade agree?ments, products of Korea 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 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 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.
