RE: The tariff classification of men’s shirt-styled jackets from Bangladesh

Dear Ms. Iacobello:

In your letter dated March 10, 2006, you requested a classification ruling. Samples were submitted and are being returned as you requested.

The first item, style 4551548, has a shell made from a woven 100% cotton canvas fabric. The jacket has a full front opening secured by a seven-button closure, long sleeves with vented, buttoned cuffs, button-through chest pockets, side seam pockets at the waist, elbow patches, a suede pointed collar, side vents and a back seam and a full lining diamond-quilted to a nonwoven batting.

The applicable subheading for style 455148 will be 6201.92.2051, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other men’s anoraks (including ski-jackets), windbreakers and similar articles, of cotton. The duty rate will be 9.4 percent ad valorem.

We are unable to issue a ruling on the second item, style 4551549, because the sample does not conform to the specifications you described. Please provide a sample made according to specifications.

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 4551548 falls within textile category designation 334. 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).
