RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit pullover garment from China.

Dear Mr. Gregory:

In your letter dated January 3, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling. Your sample is being retained for our files.

Style K5-239 is a men’s polo-style pullover constructed from 92% cotton, 8% wool, jersey knit fabric that measures 14 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The garment features a rib knit spread collar; a partial front opening with three button closures; long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a rib knit bottom.

Because the front neckline is cut to shape and the placket is cut to length at the edges attached to the collar, the garment does not meet the requirements of Chapter 61, Statistical Note 6. Consequently the applicable subheading for Style K5-239 will be 6110.20.2069, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTSUS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: men's or boys': other. The duty rate is 16.5% ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

Style K5-239 falls within textile category designation 338. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel at otexa.ita.doc.gov.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177). A copy of this ruling letter or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported.
