RE: The tariff classification of a men's knit garment from China.

Dear Ms. Angelo:

In your letter dated April 30, 1999, you requested a tariff classifi?cation ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style M61194 “Slam” is a men’s garment constructed from 100 percent polyester, finely knit fabric which is napped on the outside surface. The fabric contains 26 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style M61194 “Slam” features a full front opening with six large snap closures; a self-fabric spread collar; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; and a straight, hemmed bottom. Woven fabric logos are sewn to the left chest, the left sleeve, and the back panel. There is a small embroidered logo on the right sleeve and embroidered lettering on the back panel.

The applicable subheading for Style M61194 “Slam” 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 M61194 “Slam” falls within textile category designation 638. 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.
