Style 700 features a round hemmed neckline, short hemmed sleeves, and a hemmed bottom. Style 713 has a round hemmed neckline, sleeveless hemmed armholes, and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the women’s pullover will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other.
