RE: The tariff classification of women’s pajamas from China.

Dear Ms. Jin:

In your letter dated May 25, 2005, you requested a classification ruling for women’s pajamas.

The submitted item, style CL0017115/8513 is a woman’s pajama set constructed from 96 percent nylon, four-percent spandex knit fabric. The camisole styled pajama top has adjustable shoulder straps, a V-shaped neckline in front, and overlock stitching finishing the bottom. The armholes, neckline, upper back, shoulder straps, and bodice are trimmed with knit openwork fabric. The panty styled pajama bottom has an elasticized waistband, lined crotch, and waistband and leg openings trimmed with the same fabric as is used on the top.

The garments are considered sleepwear, based on their appearance as well as the submitted marketing information.

The applicable subheading for style CL0017115/8513 will be 6108.32.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women's knit ...pajamas of man-made fibers. The rate of duty will be 16 percent ad valorem.
