RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s tank top from Hong Kong.

Dear Mr. Pascarella:

We are returning your sample as you requested.

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
