The garment is sleeveless, has a U-shaped neckline in front and back and shoulder straps that measure 1-½-inches in width. The front of the garment has an inner layer that extends above the front neckline and ties around the neck, similar to a halter styling. The applicable subheading for style J833P will be 6109.10.0070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Tank topsand similar garments, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: Women’s or girls’: Other.
