RE: The tariff classification of a ladies’ garment from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated October 7, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style S319004 is a long line brassiere approximately 9 ¾ inches in length from the top of the cups to the hemmed bottom. A knitted mesh 85% nylon 15% spandex fabric comprises the form fitted underwire cups and the center front portion of the garment which measures approximately 4 inches across. The balance of the garment is constructed of a 65% cotton 30% nylon 5% spandex twill fabric. The brassiere features 5 vertical stays measuring approximately 4 inches in length, adjustable shoulder straps, and 9 front brassiere type hook and eye closures. The essential character of the brassiere is imparted by the twill fabric.
