RE: The tariff classification of men’s knit pullover garments from El Salvador, Jamaica and Mexico.

Dear Ms. Disher:

In your letter dated January 2, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your samples will be returned.

Styles SL80 and SL84 are men’s pullover garments constructed from 70 percent cotton, 30 percent rayon, finely knit, heavy weight jersey fabric that measures 23 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Styles SL80 and SL84 feature a rib knit crew neckline; short, hemmed sleeves; and a straight, hemmed bottom. The garments will be imported in sizes S, M, L, XL, and 2XL.

The applicable subheading for Styles SL80 and SL84 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 or boys'. The rate of duty will be 17.3 percent ad valorem.

Styles SL80 and SL84 fall within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Jamaica are subject to visa requirements. Products of El Salvador and Mexico are not presently subject to visa requirements or 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 indicated 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 646-733-3271.
