RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s suit from China

Dear Mr.. Zelman:

In your letter dated April 26, 2006, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Tahari ASL LLC. The submitted sample will be returned to you as requested.

Style 62M584 is a women’s suit consisting of a suit jacket and pants. Both components are constructed from 100 percent polyester woven fabric and are of the same style, color and composition and of corresponding size. The tailored jacket is composed of more than four panels sewn together lengthwise and features long sleeves, a notched lapel, pockets with flaps at the waist, shoulder pads, a lining and a full front opening secured by three buttons. The collar and pocket flaps have a decorative grograin trim. The pants feature a waistband with a zipper and tab closure fastened by two hidden buttons and two hook and eye closures, long hemmed legs and a lining. The decorative trim is repeated on the pants.

The applicable subheading for the suit will be 6204.13.2010 Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s or girls’ suits, ensembles, suit-type jackets, blazers, dresses, skirts, divided skirts, trousers, bib and brace overalls, breeches and shorts (other than swimwear): suits: of synthetic fibers: other: women’s. The duty rate will be 35.3 cents/kg + 25.9 percent ad valorem.
