RE: The tariff classification of men’s knitted garments from China; applicability of HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 6

Dear Ms. Fox:

This letter replaces NY M84387 that was issued to you on July 20, 2006 on behalf of Peninsula Global, Inc. In that letter, Style MCS01704 was not considered knit to shape because it was constructed from components that did not meet the requirements of Statistical Note 6. In addition, the submitted garment and the submitted components did not match.

On August 22, 2006, you submitted a new sample garment and new components for this style. An examination of the new garment indicates that Style MCS01704 is now constructed with knit to shape components. Your sample has been retained for our files.

Style Number: MCS01704 (also imported as BCS01704)

Garment Description: Men’s pullover, 100% cotton; jersey knit, rib knit turtleneck collar, partial front zippered opening, long sleeves with rib knit cuffs, rib knit bottom.

HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 3 Stitch Count: 12 stitches per 2 centimeters HTSUS Chapter 61 Statistical Note 6 Stitch Count: 12 stitches per 2 centimeters

Garment Construction: All components are knit to shape and assembled by linking and looping. The front and back panels have clear and continuous lines of demarcation at the necklines and full fashion marks at the armholes. The sleeves have full fashion marks at the armholes. The turtleneck collar has a self-start bottom and self finished sides. The placket capping has a self-start bottom and self finished sides.
