RE: The tariff classification of girls’ cardigans from China

Dear Ms. Kittel:

This ruling replaces NY M83810, dated June 6, 2006, for which you indicate that you submitted the incorrect samples. A corrected ruling, based on the new samples which you submitted with your letter of July 24, 2006 follows.

Submitted styles 203962 and 203963 are long-sleeved, cardigan-like garments that reach the vicinity of the waist.

Style 203963 has a pointelle design, set-in sleeves and a six-button opening that extends from the neckline to the waist. Style 203962 has a band of crochet fabric at the neckline that secures the garment, at the neckline only, by means of a two-button closure. Style 203962 has raglan sleeves and crochet fabric at the garment waist. Style 203962 is not knit to shape because of the crochet fabric.

As you have requested, both of the submitted garments and their accompanying component parts are being returned.
