RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s top from China.

Dear Ms. Bauman:

In your letter dated October 11, 2005, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Dress Barn Inc. As requested, your sample is being returned.

Style 6030 is a woman’s top constructed from 70 percent cotton, 30 percent nylon knit fabric. The garment has a full front opening with a top button and long sleeves. The neckline and front opening have a rib knit finish. The garment does not entirely reach the waist, but does provide sufficient coverage of the bust.

The applicable subheading for style 6030 will be 6114.20.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Tops: women’s or girls’. The duty rate will be 10.2% ad valorem.

Style 6030 falls within textile category designation 339. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
