RE: The tariff classification of two women’s pullovers from Hong Kong or China

Dear Ms. Malina:

In your letter dated April 11, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your samples are being returned as requested.

You submitted two samples, styles 54137 and 54138, of women’s knit pullovers. The garments will be constructed from 96% cotton, 3% nylon, 1% lycra or 95% cotton, 3% nylon, 2% lycra, knit fabric. The outer surface of the garments measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the horizontal direction.

Each style features ribbed V-necklines, ¾ inch long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, and ribbed bottoms.

You state in your letter that the style numbers above were used in binding ruling number D87345, issued on May 24, 1999 for men’s pants. You also state that the development of the men’s pants were dropped after the ruling was issued and were never imported under the above style numbers, and, that the style numbers are now being assigned to women’s sweaters. Binding ruling number D87345 does not have to be revoked.
