The fabric measures 13 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style D13834/D13835 has a rib knit crew neckline, long sleeves, and a straight bottom. The sleeves and the bottom are finished with overlock stitching.

The applicable subheading for Style D13834/D13835 will be 6110.11.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of wool or fine anmal hair: of wool: other: men's or boys'.

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.
