RE: The tariff classification of infants’ and girls’ wearing apparel from Lithuania

Dear Ms. Wege:

In your letter dated August 9, 2002, written on behalf of Garnet Hill, you requested a classification ruling.

One of the garments is a loose-fitting pair of trousers, fully elasticized around the waistband through which a drawstring is threaded, elasticized around the ankles, and and ornamented by tucking and by textile overlays. The other garment is a sleeveless blouse, ruffled around the neckline and around the armholes, which buttons together vertically along the entire mid-section of the back.

What you have submitted as style CH607S03 is a one-piece garment, which will be modified upon importation so as to be short-legged without leg openings. Other characteristics of this garment include short sleeves, front pockets, and a buttoned opening, which extends from below the round neckline to the crotch.

In larger sizing for girls the one-piece garment falls within 237; the trousers of the two-piece style fall within 348, and the blouse of this style falls within 339.

If so, visa and quota requirements applicable to the subject merchandise may be affected and should also be verified at the time of shipment.
