RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s upper body garment from China.

Dear Ms. Chapman:

In your letter dated October 7, 2005, you requested a classification ruling for a woman’s knit upper body garment from China. The submitted sample will be returned to you, as requested.

The sleeveless garment reaches the waist and has a partial front opening with no closure, and a plain, hemmed bottom. The two front panels are twisted and attached at the bottom through two button-hole type openings, giving the appearance of two ties knotted at the bottom. The two front panels provide sufficient front coverage.

The applicable subheading for style JK55967-0016G will be 6110.30.3055, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pulloversand similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of man-made fibers: Other: Women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 32% ad valorem.
