Dear Ms. Quinn:

In your letter dated April 17, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Christopher & Banks Company. The submitted samples will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for the hat will be 6505.90.8090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for hats and other headgear, knitted or crocheted, or made up from lace, felt or other textile fabric, in the piece (but not in strips), whether or not lined or trimmed; hair-nets of any material, whether or not lined or trimmed: other: of man-made fibers: other: not in part of braid: other: other: other. The duty rate will be 18.7 cents/kg + 6.8 percent ad valorem.
