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

Dear Ms. Sarmiento:

In your letter dated February 4, 2005, on behalf of Norton, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being returned as requested.

The submitted sample, style A7ZSJK, is a woman’s bolero jacket that is constructed from 100% acrylic, knit fabric with a faux fur collar that is attached to the neck with 11 buttons. The garment does not reach the waist in the front. It is made with two front panels and one back panel which are sewn together lengthwise.

The garment features a detachable faux fur collar, a deep V-neckline, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, a full front opening with 2 button closures, and a ribbed bottom.

The faux fur collar and the jacket are considered as a composite good. The essential character is given by the bolero jacket; Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), General Rules of Interpretation (GRI), Rule 3 noted.

The applicable subheading for the bolero jacket will be 6104.33.2000, HTS, which provides for women’s suit-type jackets, knitted: of synthetic fibers: other. The rate of duty will be 28.2% ad valorem.

The bolero jacket falls within textile category designation 635. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
