RE: The tariff classification of women’s knit pajamas from China.

Dear Mr. Macken:

In your letter dated July 6, 2006, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of Avon Products, Inc. The submitted item will be returned to you as requested.

Style PP350772 is a woman’s pajama set constructed from 100 percent cotton knit fabric. The pajama top is made from pointelle knit fabric and has a rounded neckline with an openwork, sequined insert, long sleeves, and overlock stitching creating a “lettuce” edge at the bottom. The pajama bottoms are made from plain, jersey knit fabric, and are pull-on pants with an elasticized waistband and hemmed legs. Based on appearance, as well as the supporting marketing information, this style is considered sleepwear, and classified in heading 6108.

The applicable subheading for the pajamas will be 6108.31.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’spajamas knitted or crocheted: Of cotton. The rate of duty will be 8.5 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/.
