It is constructed of 100% knitted cotton and features straps under two inches, a scoop neckline and an elasticized bottom. The vest features straps two inches in width, oversized arm holes, a flared hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the crop top will be 6114.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the Unites States (HTS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Tops: Women’s or girls’. The rate of duty will be 11.2 percent ad valorem.
