RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s cardigan from Turkey

Dear Mr. Gould:

In your letter dated December 10, 2002, on behalf of Esprit US Distribution Ltd., 16/f 1370 Broadway, New York, NY 10018, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style QU1762, is a woman’s cardigan that is constructed from 100% cotton, double knit fabric. The outer surface of the garment measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction. The garment features a drawstring hood, short hemmed sleeves, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 pouch pockets in the waist area and a ribbed bottom. The pockets are finished with ribbed fabric. An “Esprit” design is on the left chest.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the cardigan will be 6110.20.2075, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pullovers, knitted: of cotton: otherother: women’s. The duty rate will be 17.3% ad valorem for 2002 and 16.9% ad valorem for 2003.

The cardigan falls within textile category designation 339. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Turkey are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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. Customs Service 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 the ruling 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 the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mike Crowley at 646-733-3049.
