RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit garment from China and Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Burgos:

In your letter, dated September 27, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Paco Sport, Ltd. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style 1424 is a men’s sleeveless garment constructed from 100 polyester, knit fabric that measures more than 9 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style 1424 is designed for wear over the skin or underwear and features a full front opening with six button closures; a baseball neckline; and a curved, hemmed bottom. There is a large logo applique on the front chest.

The applicable subheading for Style 1424 will be 6110.30.3050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: other: men’s or boys’. The duty rate will be 33.1 percent ad valorem.

Style 1424 falls within textile category designation 638. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of China and Hong Kong are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. Customs Service Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. In addition, the designated textile and apparel categories may be subdivided into parts. If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177). A copy of this ruling letter or the control number listed above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.

If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 212-637-7081.
