RE: The tariff classification of men’s woven lounge pants from Pakistan

Dear Ms. Fontecchio:

In your letter dated August 22, 2002, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Goody’s Family Clothing, Inc.

As the styles you describe differ in construction features and are not identical, we will limit our classification ruling to the sample submitted.

In the case of apparel, when these items differ by more than simple color, etc., we request that a sample of each be submitted.

Style 1179906-01 is a yarn dyed, striped, 100 percent combed cotton woven broad cloth pant. The pant features an elasticized waistband with a sewn tunnel through which a matching fabric tape is threaded to serve as a drawstring. The waistband breaks at the fly and is secured at the waist by a button. There are two additional buttons on the placketed fly which serve to close the fly. they are covered by an additional piece of fabric. There are two side pockets and the pant legs are hemmed.

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