Dear Ms. Sarmiento:

In your letter dated June 1, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #4X3EXD, is a woman’s blouse constructed from 53% silk, 28% nylon, and 19% cotton knit fabric. The garment features a round neckline in front, long sleeves with a three button opening at the cuffs, a full-front opening with an eight-button closure, and a tubular knit bottom. The garment also has embroidery and decorative strips of ribbon stitched to the upper portion of the front panel. The fabric of the blouse has more than 10 stitches per centimeter in both the horizontal and vertical directions.

We are returning your sample as you 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.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
