Dear Ms. Kittel:

In your letter dated May 5, 2004, written on behalf of Target Stores Import Dept. TPN-430, you requested a classification ruling.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

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.
