RE: The tariff classification of a men’s knit pullover garment from China.

Dear Mr. Katsaros:

In your letter dated June 24, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Michael Gerald LTD.

Style 6-024 is a men’s pullover garment that features a rib knit crew neckline, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, and a rib knit bottom. The garment is constructed from two different knit fabrics. The outer portion of each sleeve and the front and back yokes are cut and sewn from 80% cotton, 20% polyester, finely knit pile fabric that measures 23 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction. The remainder of the garment is constructed from 100% cotton, 5x2 rib knit fabric that measures 10 stitches per two centimeters counted in the horizontal direction.

The provisions of Chapter 61, Statistical Note 6 do not apply because the front and back yokes and the outer portion of the sleeves are integral components of the garment and are not knit to shape. Consequently, the applicable subheading for Style 6-024 will be 6110.20.2069, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTSUS), which provides for: sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: other: other. The rate of duty will be 16.5% 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/.

Style 6-024 falls within textile category designation 338. Quota and visa status are the result of international agreements that are subject to frequent renegotiations and changes. To obtain the most current information as to whether quota and visa requirements apply to this merchandise, we suggest that you check, close to the time of shipment, the “Textile Status Report for Absolute Quotas” available at our web site at www.cbp.gov. In addition, you will find current information on textile import quotas, textile safeguard actions and related issues at the web site of the Office of Textiles and Apparel, at otexa.ita.doc.
