RE: The tariff classification of a men’s suit-type jacket and sweat jacket from China.

Dear Ms. Horton:

In your letter dated May 23, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, your sample will be returned.

Style “Husky M739XHUS” is a men’s double jacket that consists of a suit-type jacket and a sweat jacket that can be worn together and attached by buttons at the nape of the neck and at the sleeve ends, or worn separately. Since each garment can be worn separately, they will be classified as separate garments.

The suit-type jacket of Style M739XHUS is constructed from 65% polyester, 35% wool, woven fabric with a full lining of 100% polyester, satin fabric. The jacket has six panels sewn together lengthwise and features a notched collar with lapels, a full front opening with three button closures, long hemmed sleeves with three buttons on the sleeve placket, elbow patches, an inset pocket on the left chest, two pockets with flaps below the waist, buttoned inner welt pockets, a back vent, and a hemmed bottom. There is a button at the inside rear neckline and on the sleeve ends that enable the suit-type jacket to be attached to loops on the sweat jacket.

The sweat jacket of Style M739XHUS is constructed from 65% polyester, 35% cotton, finely knit fabric that is napped on the inside surface. The garment has a lined hood with a drawstring, a full front zippered opening, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, thumb holes on the cuffs, two pouch pockets below the waist, fabric loops at the outside rear neckline and on the sleeve cuffs, and a rib knit bottom.
