RE: The tariff classification of upper body garments from China

Dear Ms. Kittel and Ms. Mitchell:

This ruling replaces NY M80376 dated February 16, 2006 that contained a clerical error with regard to the tariff classification of boys’ garments, styles Q40676MR14 and Q40676MR12. A corrected ruling follows.

Submitted styles Q40676MR14 and Q40676MR12 for boys, manufactured from finely knitted fabric of 55% ramie/45% cotton that measures less than nine stitches per two centimeters, are sized “M” that is correspondingly larger than the “M” of the girls’ styles. The former boys’ style is a long-sleeved pullover, the partial-front, zippered opening of which extends into the high neckline; and the latter boys’ style is a long-sleeved, round-necked pullover.
