The jacket features a rounded lapel collar, long hemmed sleeves with slit ends with button trim, faux pockets with flaps below the waist, a center back vent, a rear tab at the waist, shoulder pads, a lining and a full front opening secured by four buttons. The jacket extends from the shoulders to just above the knee.

You have indicated that this garment is part of a mix and match grouping containing several suit-type jackets and various styles of skirts and/or pants of matching fabric.

The applicable subheading for style 55202ME/65202ME will be 6211.43.0078, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: jackets and jacket-type garments excluded from heading 6202. The rate of duty will be 16 percent ad valorem.
