RE: The tariff classification of a man’s flocked jacket from China

Dear Ms. Cheung:

In your letter dated June 12, 2006, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 6N731, is a man’s blazer-style jacket constructed of a shell composed of a woven denim 98% cotton/2% spandex base fabric which is coated with an adhesive and then covered on the outer surface with a 100% viscose flocking dust to create a velvet look.

The garment has a notched-lapel style collar, a full front opening secured by a left-over-right, two-button closure, long hemmed sleeves with a vent opening at the wrist area that is secured by three buttons, two front pockets with flap closures below the waist and a straight cut hemmed bottom with a rear vent.

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

The applicable subheading for the garment will be 6210.40.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: other men’s or boys’ garments: other: other: other. The duty rate will be 6.2 percent 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/.
