RE: The tariff classification of a novelty brief from China.

Dear Ms. Sousa:

In your letter dated July 11, 2005, you requested a classification ruling. As requested by separate letter the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, style 300-021 ST Men’s moonshine studded brief is a man’s novelty jock strap-like item. The item is constructed of 85% nylon and 15% spandex fabric. The item has no back panel and is held on the wearer by a waistband and around the legs by two strap-like fabric pieces.

Although the item is referred to as a brief, it is not designed for wear under clothing; it is designed to be seen when worn.

The applicable subheading for the style 300-021 ST will be 6114.30.3060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other garments, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other, other: men’s or boys’. The duty rate will be 14.9 percent ad valorem.

Style 300-021 ST falls within textile category designation 659. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.

In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel, at otexa.ita.doc.gov. .

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
