RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit shirt from India.

Dear Ms. Mobley:

In your letter dated October 28, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Lot number 515-5776 is a men’s shirt constructed from 100 percent cotton, pique knit fabric that measures 10 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the horizontal direction and 19 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the vertical direction. The shirt features a self-fabric spread collar; a partial front opening with a two button placket; short, hemmed sleeves; and a straight, hemmed bottom with side slits and a tail.

The applicable subheading for Lot number 515-5776 will be 6105.10.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: men’s or boys’ shirts, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: men's. The rate of duty will be 20 percent ad valorem.

Lot number 515-5776 falls within textile category designation 338. Based upon international textile trade agreements, products of India are subject to visa requirements and quota restraints.

The designated textile and apparel categories and their quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the U.S. CustomsService Textile Status Report, an internal issuance of the U.S. Customs Service, which is available at the Customs Web site at www.customs.gov. 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.

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

A copy of this ruling letter or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 646-733-3271.
