RE: The tariff classification of boys’ knit T-shirts from Mexico

Dear Mr. Venable:

This ruling replaces NY M83556, dated May 30, 2006, which contained a discrepancy with regard to fabric weight. A ruling with revised fabric weights follows.

Style 5480 is manufactured from jersey knit cotton fabric in both all white and dyed fabric that weighs less than 200 grams per square meter. It is characterized by a close fitting body, a round neckline and short hemmed sleeves.

As you have requested, both submitted samples of this style are being returned.

The applicable subheading for this style in all white fabric will be 6109.10.0004, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for men’s or boys’ T-shirts, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, all white, short hemmed sleeves, hemmed bottom, crew or round neckline, without pockets, trim or embroidery. The applicable subheading for this style in dyed fabric will be 6109.10.0014, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for men’s or boys’ other T-shirts, knitted or crocheted, of cotton, boys’. The duty rate will be 16.5 per cent 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/.
