The garment is comprised of three panels, two of which are in the front, sewn together lengthwise. The garment features long sleeves and a full front opening with a tie closure. The jacket does not reach the waist.

The applicable subheading for the bolero jacket will be 6104.33.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for women’s suit-type jackets, knitted: of synthetic fibers: other. The rate of duty will be 28.2% ad valorem.
