RE: The tariff classification of a man's shirt from Malaysia.

Dear Mr. Scher:

In your letter dated May 17, 1999, on behalf of Nautica International, you requested a classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, style 9W4700, is a man's 60% wool, 30% viscose and 10% nylon woven shirt. The garment features long sleeves with one button cuffs, sleeve vents, a collar, a full frontal opening secured with a seven button closure, a buttoned flapped breast pocket and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for style 9W4700, will be 6205.10.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men's or boys' shirts: of wool or fine animal hair: other, men's. The duty rate will be 19.2 percent ad valorem and 26.4 cents per kg.

Style 9W4700 falls within textile category designation 440. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Malaysia 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. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Gerard Shea at 212-637-7082.
