The sleeve edges, neck and front opening are trimmed with beading. The skirt features a full lining, a partially elasticized waist, a back zipper closure, and a side front slit. The slit is embellished with beading on either side. The skirt extends to the ankle. The blouse is sleeveless and features a full lining, a square neckline, a back zipper closure and beading around the front neckline. The blouse measures 3 ½ inches at the shoulder seam.

The suit falls within textile category designation 644 and the blouse falls within textile category designation 641. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota restraints and a visa requirement.

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 Patricia Schiazzano at 212-637-7080.
