RE: The tariff classification of a women’s jacket to be manufactured in China

Dear Ms. Lear:

In your letter dated September 24, 1999, which was received by Customs on Octber 8, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of LF Sportswear, of Los Angeles, California.

The submitted sample, designated style number 17155, is a women’s jacket manufactured from a 100% silk woven fabric. The garment has a lining of a 100% woven nylon fabric as well as a layer of 100% polyesyter fiber filling quilted to the interior of the silk outer shell.

The garment features a full frontal opening secured by a coarse-toothed zipper that extends to the top of a stand-up collar, two side pockets below the waist, each secured by a coarse-toothed zipper, and a straight, hemmed bottom through which is threaded a tunnel drawstring.

The applicable subheading for the garment is 6202.99.1000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for women’s or girls’ anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles, containing 70 percent or more by weight of silk or silk waste. The applicable rate of duty is 1.5%, ad valorem.

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.
