RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit shirt from India.

Dear Ms. Fust:

In your letter dated May 5, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

The submitted sample, identified as “Ingeo T-shirt”, is a men’s polo style shirt constructed from 100% PLA, finely knit fabric. PLA is the generic name for a manufactured synthetic fiber made from polylactic acid polymers. The fabric measures 10 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the horizontal direction and 11 stitches per linear centimeter counted in the vertical direction. The garment has a rib knit spread collar, a partial front opening with two button closures, short sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a hemmed bottom with side slits.

The applicable subheading for the shirt will be 6105.20.2010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTSUS), which provides for: men’s or boys’ shirts, of man-made fibers: other: men’s. The duty rate is 32% ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

The shirt made falls within textile category designation 638. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes.
