RE: The tariff classification of wearing apparel for toddlers from China

Dear Ms Fingard:

In your letter dated August 12, 2002 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 4501 is comprised of two presumably boys’ wear garments. One of these garments, manufactured from finely knitted fabric of 100% cotton, is a short-sleeved, round-necked, pullover onto each of the shoulder seams of which a textile loop is overlaid. The other of these garments is sleeveless, manufactured from denim fabric of 100% cotton. Its characteristics include short legs, which snap together along each inner side; a high back, which extends into the adjustable suspenders, which are drawn through the shoulder loops of the knitted pullover before attaching to the hardware at each upper corner of the bib front; and a buttoned opening at and below each side of the waist. Various pockets, embroidery, and belt loops on the front of the waistband decorate the garment.

The applicable subheading for style 4501 will be 6110.20.2065 for the upper-body garment, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pullovers, and similar articles, knitted, of cotton, other, other, other, boys’; and will be 6203.42.2050 for the denim garment, which provides for boys’trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts, of cotton, other, other, boys’, sizes 2-7, other. The duty rates will be 17.3 and 10.4 per cent ad valorem, respectively.

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.
