In your letter dated April 1, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style 1786/96 “Chrono Top” is a men’s pullover garment constructed from 94 percent polyester, 6 percent spandex, finely knit fabric that measures 30 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. Style 1786/96 is sleeveless and features shoulder straps that measure two and one half inches in width; a partial front opening with a zippered closure; a low, round front neckline; a rear neckline that falls below the nape of the neck; a rear pocket below the waist; and a tunnel elastic bottom with a curved tail. There are reflective heat seal logos on the left chest and on the rear pocket.

The applicable subheading for Style 1786/96 will be 6110.30.3050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: other: men’s or boys’.

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 this ruling letter 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 this ruling, contact National Import Specialist Mary Ryan at 646-733-3271.
