RE: The tariff classification of a sueded PVC bomber jacket from China.

Dear Mr. Attias:

In your letter dated June 28, 1999 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, is a Sueded PVC Teddy Bomber Jacket. The garment has a suede look outer shell, is waist length and features a full front zipper and snap closure. It has a stand up knit and suede collar, knit waist and cuffs, and a quilted lining. The “suede” appears to have been constructed from knit scrim covered on both sides with cellular PVC. The product then appears to have been embossed on one surface with a “leather” grain and coated on the other with textile flock to simulate “suede”. Accordingly, the flocked cellular PVC from which the jacket is made is not a fabric within the scope of Section XI. NY Ruling E80854 issued May 6, 1999 refers to Style Bpf001. The identical jacket will be made in China. You state Styles Bpf002, Btf1011, Btf1012, Pf101 and Pf102 will be the identical fabric and design with the difference only in the embroidery.

The applicable subheading for the Sueded PVC Teddy Bomber Jacket, Styles Bpf001, Bpf002, Btf1011, Btf1012, Pf101 and Pf102 will be 3926.20.9050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Other articles of plastics and articles of other materials of headings 3901 to 3914: Articles of apparel and clothing accessories (including gloves): Other: Other, Other.” The rate of duty will be 5% ad valorem.

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 Kenneth Reidlinger at 212-637-7084.
