RE: The tariff classification of socks from China.

Dear Mr. Huffman:

In your letter dated October 30, 2005, on behalf of Old Navy, you requested a classification ruling. As requested, the sample will be returned to you.

Your submitted sample, are a pair of knitted socks constructed of 77% cotton, 20% polyester and 3% spandex yarns. The socks have rib-knit turned cuffs.

You ask for classification as an infant’s sock. Your submitted sample is a size 2T/3T, which is a toddler size not an infant size sock. Therefore the socks will be classified as a regular socks.

The applicable subheading for the pair of socks will be 6115.92.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for panty hose, tights, stockings, socks and other hosiery, including stockings for varicose veins and footwear without applied soles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other. The duty rate will be 13.5 percent ad valorem.

The socks fall within textile category designation 332. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
