RE: The tariff classification of boys’ board shorts from Bangladesh

Dear Mr. Evan:

In your letter dated October 17, 2006, on behalf of your client, In Private, Inc., you requested a classification ruling.

Four samples have been submitted with your request. The garments, which are similar in construction, except for the outer shell design are identified as styles 00207470, (Camo leaf), 00207469 (Dragon Blade), 00207678 (Torch Shark) and 00207469 (Surf Unit). The garments are boys’ board shorts constructed of printed woven polyester fabric that has a visible plastic coating on the inner surface. The shorts are not lined.

The shorts extend to the lower thigh area and have banded waistbands with front waistband openings secured by hook and loop fasteners and self fabric tabs, each with two eyelets, located on either side of the opening. A drawstring capable of tightening the waistband is threaded in a criss-cross pattern through the eyelets. Styles 00207469, 00207678 and 00207469 have pant leg patch pockets that are secured by pocket flaps with hook and loop fasteners. Style 00207470 has a back pocket that is set-in and secured by a pocket flap with hook and loop fastener. All shorts have leg separations that are hemmed at the bottom.

The samples will be returned to you as you have requested.
