Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated June 17, 2004, on behalf of High Style Intl. Ltd., 22 W. 38th Street, NY, NY 10019, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, style number H04-K201, is a woman’s jacket that is constructed from 100% cotton, mesh interlock knit fabric. The jacket features a hood, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, grommets in the armhole areas, a full front opening with a zipper closure, inset slant pockets at the waist, and a ribbed bottom. Vertical strips of rib knit fabric extend from under the arms to the ribbed bottom.

Your sample is being returned as requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6102.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s overcoatswindbreakers and similar articles, knitted, other than those of heading 6104: of cotton: women’s. The rate of duty will be 15.9% ad valorem.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 335. Based upon international textile trade agreements products of the China are subject to quota and the requirement of a visa.

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 the ruling 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 the ruling, contact National Import Specialist 359 at 646-733-3049.
