Dear Mr. Cashin:

In your letter dated December 14, 2005, you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample is a “Tag Along Cap.” On November 3, 2005 you received ruling NY L88322 on a version of this cap that was constructed of woven 65% cotton, 35% polyester fabric. The instant “Tag Along Cap” is constructed of woven 100% cotton fabric. The soft fabric foreign legion-style hat, without a peak, covers the back of the neck and that portion is lined with terry fabric. The neck-covering portion of the hat features a zipper pocket.

The applicable subheading for the “Tag Along Cap” will be 6505.90.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for hat and other headgearmade up from lace, felt or other textile fabrics, in the piece (but not in strips), whether or not lined or trimmedother: of cotton, flax or both: not knittedheadwear of cotton, other.
