RE: The tariff classification of infants’ wearing apparel from China

Dear Ms. Scandrett:

In your letter dated July 24, 2006 you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 715-255 that is patterned for boys’ wear, is a one-piece, footed garment, manufactured from fleece fabric of 100% polyester, that is further characterized by long sleeves and by a snapped opening that extends from the neckline to the inner side of each of the legs.

Submitted style 719-075 is comprised of three pieces. Two of these pieces, manufactured from finely knitted fabric of 100% cotton, are a short-sleeved dress and a panty-like garment that is fully elasticized around the waistband and around the lower edges. The third of the pieces, manufactured from knitted pile fabric of 80% cotton/20% polyester, is a long-sleeved cardigan, that does not fasten together.

As you have requested, the sample styles are being returned.

The applicable subheading for the boys’ garment will be 6111.30.5070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for babies’ garments, knitted, of synthetic fibers, other, other, other; and for the dress set will be 6111.20.4000, HTSUS, which provides for babies’ garments and clothing accessories, knitted, of cotton, dresses.
