RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit pullover garment from Indonesia and Sri Lanka.

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated March 7, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style 033-0502 (in men’s regular sizes) is a pullover garment constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit French terry fabric that measures more than 9 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style 033-0502 features a self-fabric hood with a drawstring; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs; a nylon woven patch pocket on the left chest with a flap and a Velcro-like closure; and a loose fitting, rib knit bottom. The same garment will be imported in men’s tall sizes as Style 033-0503.

The applicable subheading for Styles 033-0502 and 033-0503 will be 6110.20.2065, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: men’s and boys’. The duty rate will be 18.2 percent ad valorem.

Styles 033-0502 and 033-0503 fall within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Indonesia and Sri Lanka 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.
