RE: The tariff classification of men’s pajamas from China

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated February 14, 2002, you requested a classification ruling.

You submitted two garments which will be returned as you have requested. The two garments comprise the top and bottom of a men’s pair of pajamas. They are made of 100 percent woven cotton, slightly brushed. The set is identified as styles 015-0232 (regular) and 015-0233 (tall). The top garment is a shirt featuring a full frontal opening with four buttons, long sleeves, a breast pocket, a notched collar and a squared hemmed bottom. The pants feature a covered elasticized waistband with a tunneled drawcord, two side seam pockets and a one snap covered fly. You state that these items, top and bottom are imported together in a plastic poly bag and are intended to be sold together as a set or pair of pajamas. You state that the garments are advertised in that area of your catalogue which advertises sleepwear and underwear. You included pages from old catalogue issues which depict similar garments and they are identified in the catalogue as “pajama sets”.

The applicable subheading for the pajamas, styles 015-0232 and 015-0233 will be 6207.21.0030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men’s or boys’ singlets and other undershirts, underpants, briefs, nightshirts, pajamas, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles, nightshirts and pajamas, of cotton. other, men’s. The duty rate will be 9 percent ad valorem.

Styles 015-0232 and 015-0233 fall within textile category designation 351. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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 Specialist Camille R. Ferraro at 646-733-3046.
