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

Dear Mr. Gregory:

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

The sample submitted, style W6-007, is a man’s hip-length jacket constructed of a shell composed of contrasting color fabric inserts of a knit 100% polyester fabric that has a visible coating on the inner surface. The jacket is not lined.

The jacket has a full front opening secured by a zipper closure, a stand-up collar and an overlapping flap with four snaps that covers the zipper area. The jacket has long sleeves with elasticized cuffs, a pocket with a zipper closure on the left chest, two front pockets with zipper closures below the waist and a drawcord tightening through the bottom hem.

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

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6113.00.9025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Garments, made up of knitted or crocheted fabrics of heading 5903, 5906 or 5907: Other: Coats and jackets: Other: Men’s and boys’. The duty rate will be 7.1 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/.

The jacket falls within textile category designation 634. 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.gov.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist W. Raftery at 646-733-3047.
