The submitted garment, style 983, is a woman’s divided skirt constructed from 50 percent cotton, 50 percent polyester knit fabric. The divided skirt has an elasticized waistband, a front panel extending from the right seam to a point two inches before the left seam, and a plain, hemmed bottom. The front panel obscures the leg separation when the garment is viewed from the front. You have also indicated that the garment will be imported in a woman’s junior size range under style number 984.

You have indicated in your letter that the fabric is a blend of 50 percent polyester and 50 percent cotton. Garments which are claimed to be constructed from such a blend are subject, upon importation, to laboratory analysis to verify the actual weight of the component fibers. Please be advised that a slight variation from the above stated fiber content may affect the classification and the textile category designation of the subject garment.

The applicable subheading for the divided skirt will be 6104.53.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’sskirts and divided skirtsknitted or crocheted: Of synthetic fibers. The duty rate will be 16.1 percent ad valorem.
