RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Pender:

In your letter dated September 3, 2003, you requested a tariff classification ruling. We are returning the submitted samples as per your request.

Two samples were provided for review. Style HU9121 is a tight fitting glove constructed of cowgrain leather with stretch fabric inserts across the backside knuckle area and at the lower section of three backside fingers. The glove features a backside leather tab wrist tightener which is secured by hook and loop fasteners, a partially elasticized wrist, and fourchettes.

Style HU9026 is a tight fitting glove constructed with a complete palmside and fourchettes made of cowgrain leather and a backside made of a printed camouflage fabric. The gloves features an elasticized wrist and leather trim at the cuff bottom.

Both gloves show design for use in the sport of shooting.

The applicable subheading for both gloves will be 4203.21.8060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Articles of apparel and clothing accessories, of leather or of composition leather: Gloves, mittens and mitts: Specially designed for use in sports: Other . . .
