The fabric measures 24 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The garment features a partial front opening with a zippered closure; a convertible collar; long, hemmed sleeves; a zippered pocket on the left sleeve; side seam pockets below the waist; and a straight bottom with a drawcord and cordlocks. The same garment will also be imported as Vendor Stock Numbers FG-3406BP, FG-3406BG and FG-3406TL.

The applicable subheading for Vendor Stock Numbers FG-3406, FG-3406BP, FG-3406BG and FG3406TL will be 6110.30.3050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: 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.
