The jacket is composed of more than four panels and features long sleeves, a notched collar, one chest pocket, two patch pockets at the waist, shoulder pads, a lining and a full front opening secured by three snap closures. The jacket has fringed and leather trim around the sleeve edges, collar, front opening, pockets and bottom of the garment. The pullover is constructed from 90 percent polyester and 10 percent spandex woven fabric. The pullover features a round neckline, long sleeves and hemmed bottom. The outer surface of the pullover measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6204.33.5010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirt, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): suit-type jackets and blazers: of synthetic fibers: other: women’s.
