RE: The tariff classification of a man’s woven reversible short coat from Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Stavola:

In your letter dated April 24, 2000, on behalf of your client, Henry Cottons, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The classification of style 116034 cannot be given without the submission of a sample.

The sample submitted, style number 116035, is a man’s woven reversible short coat, having a full frontal opening, with button closures. Side A is 57 percent viscose/43 percent cotton, with welt pockets. Side B is 100 percent wool, with lower patch pockets. The sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6201.13.4030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other men’s overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks and similar coats, of man-made fibers . The rate of duty will be 28.4 percent ad valorem. The garment falls within textile category designation 634. As a product of Hong Kong this merchandise is currently subject to visa restrictions and quota restraints based upon international textile trade agreements.

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 Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
