RE: The tariff classification of a mans reversible jacket.

Dear Mr. McKenna:

In your letter dated June 7, 1999, on behalf of your client, Hartwell Sports, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 7720 is a mans reversible jacket. The garment features a full front opening with zipper closure, a hidden fold away hood, and elasticized cuffs and waistband. Each shell of the jacket has a chest pocket, as well as pockets at the waist. One shell is a 100 percent polyester knit fabric, the other a 100 percent nylon woven fabric which is visibly coated with polyurethane on its inner surface. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for style 7720 will be 6210.40.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907, other mens or boys garments, anoraks including ski-jackets, windbreakers and similar articles, of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 7.4 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 634. As a product of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Korea, Indonesia, Cambodia and the Philippines, this merchandise is currently subject to visa requirements and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements.

The designated textile and apparel category may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected. Since 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 Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
