RE: The tariff classification of a man’s jacket from Vietnam

Dear Ms. Boullet:

In your letter dated March 23, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number WM5361, is a man’s jacket constructed of a shell composed of a woven 78% polyester/22% rayon moleskin fabric that has a visible polyurethane coating on the inner surface. The jacket is lined with a woven man-made fiber fabric that is quilted to a nonwoven polyester batting insulation.

The jacket has a detachable hood with a rear tab secured by a hook and loop fastener, a stand-up collar and a full front opening secured by a zipper closure that extends to the top of the collar. An overlapping flap with six magnetic closures along its length and one-snap closure at the bottom covers the zipper area. The garment has a left chest pocket secured by a flap with snap closures, two double entry front pockets below the waist secured by a flap with snap closures and two inner pockets, one of which has a zipper closure. The jacket also has long sleeves with fold over cuffs that are secured by a snap closure and a straight cut hemmed bottom. The “Columbia” tradename and logo is embroidered onto the bottom of the left front panel.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.
