RE: The tariff classification of men’s woven pajama pants from Cambodia.

Dear Ms. Fagan:

In your letter dated July 14, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of The World’s Global Source, LLC. As requested, your sample will be returned.

The pants are constructed from 55 percent cotton, 45 percent polyester, woven fabric and have a non-elasticized drawstring waist; an open, unsecured fly that closes left over right; and straight, hemmed legs. Although you identify the pants as a unisex garment, following Chapter 62, Note 8, the pajama pants are considered a men’s garment.

The applicable subheading for Style MDT011069XL will be 6207.91.3010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for men’s or boys’ . . . nightshirts, pajamas, bathrobes, dressing gowns and similar articles: other: of cotton: other: sleepwear. The rate of duty rate is 6.1 percent ad valorem.

Style MDT011069XL falls within textile category designation 351. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
