The top extends beyond the waist and features a U-shaped neckline in front, ½ inch shoulder straps, and a self-finished bottom. An adjustable drawstring is inserted just below the bust. The upper back of the garment extends straight across from side seam to side seam.

The applicable subheading for style 289003 will be 6114.90.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: of other fibers: Tops. The rate of duty will be 5.6 percent ad valorem.
