It also has oversize, stylized, glitter lettering at the chest area. For ruling purposes it is assumed the garment is sized for girls’ 2 to 16.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.

The applicable subheading for this garment will be 6102.20.0020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s or girls’ windbreakers and similar articles, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, girls’. The duty rate will be 15.9 per cent ad valorem.
