RE: The tariff classification of a turkey vest from China.

Dear Ms. Beegle:

In your letter dated September 30, 1999, on behalf of Cabela’s Inc., you requested a classification ruling. The sample will be returned to you as requested.

The submitted sample, #93-0884, identified as Deluxe Turkey Vest is composed of woven 100% nylon fabric. However, as per our telephone conversation the imported product will be composed of woven 55/45 cotton/polyester fabric. The garment consists of two woven adjustable straps at the shoulders, two snap flap pockets with inside bullet holders, game pouch, removable seat, and a blaze at the front and back. Information supplied to this office shows that the item is designed to be worn by men.

The applicable subheading for the Deluxe Turkey Vest, #93-0884 will be 6211.32.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: Other garments of men’s or boys’: Of cotton, Vests.” The duty rate will be 8.4% ad valorem.

The Deluxe turkey Vest, #93-0884 falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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 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.
