The garment is constructed from two free-hanging layers that are securely joined only at the neckline and at the armholes. One side of the garment is of 100 percent cotton, finely knit jersey fabric with a rear yoke of mesh knit fabric and the other side is of 100 percent polyester, finely knit, mesh fabric with a rear yoke of jersey knit fabric. A fiber content and origin label is sewn to the rear neckline and tear away country of origin, fiber content and care labels are sewn to the rear neckline and the side seam.

Following General Rule of Interpretation 3 (c), the applicable subheading for Style 3k1300 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’.
