RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jacket from Singapore

Dear Mr. Hyland:

In your letter dated November 16, 2004, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number WB474ADV221, is a woman’s hip-length jacket constructed of a shell composed of a woven 58% cotton/42% polyester fabric. The jacket is lined in the body with a woven 35% cotton/35% polyester/30% rayon fabric and in the sleeves with a woven 100% nylon fabric and has a nonwoven polyester batting fill.

The jacket is slightly fitted at the waist. It has a full front opening secured by a double pull zipper closure and a fold down pointed collar with a tab secured by a snap closure at the neck. The jacket also has long hemmed sleeves with a gusset opening at the wrist area that is secured by a zipper closure, two front in-seam pockets with zipper closures at the waist and a straight cut hemmed bottom.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6202.92.2061, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other women’s anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles: of cotton. The duty rate will be 8.9 percent ad valorem.
