Dear Ms. Purcell:

In your letter dated April 24, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

The coat is lined in the front panels with a woven man-made fiber fabric. The garment will be imported in sizes X-small through 3X.

The coat extends to the lower-thigh area in length and has a full front opening secured by four button and loop closures, an oversized fold-down collar, long sleeves and two front pockets with flap closures below the waist.

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

The applicable subheading for the coat will be 6202.12.2025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for women’s overcoats, carcoats, capes, cloaks and similar coats: of cotton: other: corduroy. The duty rate will be 8.9 percent ad valorem.
