The collar and the sleeves are also made from the mesh knit fabric. The outer surface of the jersey knit fabric measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction and less than 10 stitches per linear centimeter in the horizontal and vertical directions. The garment features a turn down collar, capped sleeves, a full front opening with 7 rhinestone buttons, and a crocheted bottom with a scallop finish. Decorative beads, rhinestones and sequins are on the front panels.

The essential character is given by the jersey knit fabric. Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), General Rules of Interpretation (GRI), Rule 3, noted.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

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.
