The bonding substance is not visible in cross-section. Style “AK Super Shirt” #5001 features a rib knit crew neckline; long, hemmed sleeves; embroidered logos on the right chest and on the lower portion of the left sleeve; and a hemmed bottom with a curved tail.

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.
