RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s cardigan and tube top from Japan

Dear Ms. Chan:

In your letter dated November 28, 2000, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted samples, styles 48751 and 47999, are two women’s garments that are constructed from 100% cotton, novelty knit fabric. The outer surface of the garments measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. Style 48751 is a sleeveless cardigan that features a round neckline; a full front opening with 8 hidden snap closures; and a ribbed bottom. The neckline, armholes and the placket are finished with ribbed fabric.

Style 47999 is a tube top that features a straight front and back; an adjustable tie in the front; an inner layer of knit fabric in the chest area; and 2 side slits.

Your samples are being returned as requested.

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.

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 Mike Crowley at 212-637-7077.
