RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s vest from China

Dear Mr. Davis:

In your letter dated May 15, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Urban Stitching Associates.

The submitted sample, style 17425-103942, is a woman’s vest constructed from four different woven fabrics as follows: 85% polyester/12% rayon/3% spandex (stretch jacquard) 50% polyester/50% rayon (jacquard)
50% rayon/25% polyester/25% wool (tapestry jacquard) 78% rayon/28% polyester (crinkled velvet) Since each fabric is in chief weight of man-made fibers, the garment is considered to be of man-made fibers. The vest is lined and features oversized armholes, a notched collar and two pockets below the waist.

The applicable subheading for style 17425-103942 will be 6211.43.0076, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments, women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: vests: other. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

Style 17425-103942 falls within textile category designation 659. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. 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).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Patricia Schiazzano at 646-733-3051.
