Dear Ms. Lee:

In your letter dated June 13, 2005, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s tank top. The garment will be returned as requested.

Style 72202 is a tank top constructed from 100 percent cashmere knit fabric with more than nine stitches per two centimeters in the horizontal direction. The tank top has one-inch shoulder straps a square neckline in front and back, and a self finished bottom.

The applicable subheading for the tank top will be 6109.90.8020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Tank Tops, knitted or crocheted: Other: Women’s or girls’: Of wool. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

The tank top falls within textile category designation 438. 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.
