RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s tank top, from various countries.

Dear Ms. Stecklair:

In your letter dated March 18, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The garment is sleeveless, extends below the waistline and features a modified U-shaped neckline in front, shoulder straps measuring approximately 5/8” in width, a tub-bra insert, and a tubular bottom. The garment is decorated with 5/16” and 1/8” sequins on the front and back panels.

We are returning your sample as you requested.
