Dear Mr. Ashear:

In your letter dated June 7, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling. The submitted sample will be returned as per your request.

Style 15004 is a men’s glove constructed of a polyester fleece fabric with a palmside thumb made of a pigskin suede. A pigskin suede fabric palm patch reinforces the center of the palm. The glove also features a pigskin overlay at the thumb/forefinger crotch which extends up the outer forefinger and outer thumb, an elasticized wrist, fourchettes, a hemmed cuff, a suede pull tab sewn on the lower palmside cuff, and a hook and clasp. The cumulation of features on the glove shows a design for use in the sport of cross-country skiing.
