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

Dear Ms. Adams:

In your letter dated September 10, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 8-035-0399 is a mans reversible jacket. The garment features a full frontal opening with zipper closure, a hood with functional drawcord, rib knit cuffs and waistband. One shell is 85 percent polyester/15 percent cotton knit fabric, having a kangaroo pocket at the front center of the garment. The other is 100 percent cotton woven flannel with side seam pockets. The sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6201.92.2051, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other men’s anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles, of cotton. The rate of duty will be 9.7 percent ad valorem.

The garment falls within textile category designation 334. As a product of Thailand, 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.
