RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit jacket from Turkey.

Dear Ms. Dilmac:

In your letter dated December 27, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample is being returned.

Style SK23550 is a men’s jacket constructed from 100 percent cotton, finely knit terry fabric that has raised loops on the outside surface. Style SK23550 features a stand-up self-fabric collar; a full front opening with a zippered closure; an embroidered logo on the left chest; long sleeves with elasticized cuffs; two slash pockets below the waist; and an elasticized bottom. There is piping on the front and rear yokes, the placket, the sleeves, and the pockets.

The applicable subheading for Style SK23550 will be 6101.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: men’s or boys’ overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks, anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers, and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: other than those of heading 6103: of cotton: men's. The rate of duty will be 16.1 percent ad valorem.

Style SK23550 falls within textile category designation 334. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of Turkey 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 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 Mary Ryan at 646-733-3271.
