The submitted samples consist of styles 519595V and 519595N. Each style consists of a man’s travel toiletry bag and a travel shoe cleaning kit. Each is presented put up for sale as one article. The travel shoe cleaning kit consists of a zippered pouch of clear polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic sheeting.

The pouch contains a can of shoe polish, a brush applicator, a buffing brush and a polishing cloth.

The travel toiletry bag, style 519595V is wholly made up of imitation leather of embossed sheeting of plastics. Style 519595N is wholly made up of a woven fabric of polyester nylon.

Although the two styles are put up for retail sale as a set, they each are not considered to be a set for tariff purposes.

The applicable subheading for the shoe care kits will be 9605.00.0000, HTS, which provides for travel sets for personal toilet, sewing or shoe or clothes cleaning (other than manicure and pedicure sets of heading 8214). The rate of duty will be 8.1 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
