RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Mr. Ashear:

In your letter dated February 17, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your customer, Wal-Mart Stores. Inc. The provided sample will be returned as per your request.

Style 20350803 is a men’s camouflage-printed polyester fleece glove with fourchettes and an elasticized knitted cuff. The glove will also be available as style 20350801 in a different camouflage pattern and in youth sizes as 20350803Y and 20350801Y. We believe all glove styles show design for use in the sport of hunting.

Knitted polyester fabric hunting gloves are provided for under 6116.93.0800, HTS. Therefore, your suggestion for classification under 6116.93.9400, HTS, is not applicable.
