Dear Ms. York:

In your letter dated October 27, 2006, written on behalf of Target Stores, you requested a classification ruling.

Submitted style 002062811, manufactured from jersey fabric of 100% cotton, is an unlined garment, characterized by a full-front, metal zipper, by a hood, and by shirring around the cuffs of the long sleeves and the waistband.

As you have requested, the sample garment is being returned.
