RE: The tariff classification of a women’s knit cardigan from China

Dear Mr. Haber:

In your letter dated March 6, 2006, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of The Talbots, Inc.

You submitted a sample of a women’s knit cardigan identified as style 64121239. The cardigan is constructed of 100% cotton knit fabric that measures more than 9 but equal to or less than 18 stitches per 2 centimeters measured on the outer surface of the fabric in the direction in which the stitches were formed. The garment features a jewel neckline, a full front buttoned opening, tubular hemmed long sleeves and bottom. The front panels are knit to shape with a self start bottom, self finished sides, and full fashion marks at the armholes. The back panel has a self start bottom, self finished sides, full fashion marks at the armholes, but only marker holes to delineate the curvature of the neckline. The neckband material has self finished sides but does not have a self start bottom There is a line of demarcation between the pieces of neckband fabric, but the pieces of fabric that contain the neckband do not distinguish from the waste yarn and the neckband fabric by anything other than a change in color of the fabric. The garment does not meet the requirements of statistical note 6 to chapter 61. The garment will be returned as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for style 64121239 will be 6110.20.2079, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, cardigansand similar articles, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Other: Other: Other: Women’s or girls’: Other.
