RE: The tariff classification of a skirt and shorts for girls’ wear from Cambodia

Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated May 24, 2006, written on behalf of Children Place, you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style D3758M0006, is comprised of two pieces. One of the pieces, manufactured from woven fabric of 100% cotton, is a skirt, jeans-styled, through the belt loops of which a self-fabric belt is threaded. Sewn into this skirt, by means of one stitch at each side of the waist, is the second of the pieces, a pair of shorts, fully elasticized around the waistband, manufactured from jersey fabric of 98% cotton/2% spandex.

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

The applicable subheading for the shorts of this style will be 6104.62.2060 , Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for girls’shorts (other than swimwear), knitted, of cotton, other, shorts, girls’, other; and for the skirt of this style will be 6204.52.2080, HTSUS, which provides for girls’skirts, of cotton, other, other, girls’.
