RE: The tariff classification of women’s apparel from Turkey and Hong Kong.

Dear Ms. Brokaw:

In your letter dated March 25, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Two items were provided for review. Style S215007 consists of a women’s panty brief and a protective washing bag. The women’s panty brief is constructed of a seamless 90% nylon 10% elastic knitted fabric. The panty brief features a hemmed doubled fabric waistband with “Adidas” printed at the center of the back, elasticized capping at the leg openings, and distinct heavy ribbed construction that outlines the area below the waistband. The polyester mesh protective washing bag measures approximately 8-1/2 by 6-1/4 inches and has a drawstring closure top. Style S215007 is made in Turkey.

Style S215026B is a women’s underwire brassiere constructed of 78% nylon 22% elastic mesh fabric with plain knitted fabric at the lower cups. The brassiere features a heavily elasticized bottom band, heavily elasticized vertical strips sewn at the either side, adjustable shoulder straps made of doubled fabric at the front and an elasticized band at the rear, a triple row hook and eye rear closure, and elasticized capping at the top of the garment. The brassiere is packed in a rectangular steel can with a removable lid. Style S215026B is made in Hong Kong.

The style S215008 man-made fiber panty brief is specifically provided for under 6108.22.9020, HTS. Therefore, your suggestion for classification under 6108.92.0005, HTS, is not applicable.
