RE: The tariff classification of women’s knitwear from Hong Kong

Dear Ms. Weiss-Fox:

In your letter dated February 20, 2004, that you submitted on behalf of your client, Jones Apparel Group, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style 03490K418, is a woman’s crocheted, bolero-style jacket that consists of 86% cotton, 14% polyester fibers. The jacket features ¾-length sleeves and a full-front opening without a means of closure. It extends from the wearer’s neck and shoulders to slightly above her waist. The neck, the front placket, and the sleeve ends are finished with tubular, rib knit strips of fabric.

The applicable subheading for the woman’s crocheted bolero-style jacket, Style 03490K418, will be 6104.32.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets ----knitted or crocheted: suit-type jackets and blazers: of cotton. The duty rate will be 14.9% ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of Hong Kong 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 Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas, which is available at our Web site at www.cbp.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.
