RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit vest from India.

Dear Mr. Merendino:

In your letter dated February 14, 2002, on behalf of Tommy Hilfiger Retail, Inc., you requested a classification ruling. As requested, your sample is being returned to you.

Your sample, style 680314598, is a woman’s vest constructed from 100% cotton variable ribbed knit fabric. The outer surface of the garment measures more than nine stitches per two centimeters measured in the horizontal direction. The vest features a round collar finished with 1x1 ribbed knit fabric. The armholes and bottom are finished with 1x1 ribbed knit fabric.

The applicable subheading for the woman’s pullover will be 6110.20.2035, 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: vests: women’s. The duty rate will be 17.3 % ad valorem

The pullover falls within textile category designation 359. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of India 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 Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
