RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China.

Dear Ms. McCabe and Ms. Hess:

In your letter dated August 8, 2005, you requested a tariff classification ruling for two styles of gloves.

Styles #TG67790 and #TG67791 are clute cut gloves that are similar in style and construction. Both styles are constructed with an outer shell, from fingertips to wrist, made of polyester and cotton knitted fabric, with a compact rubber/plastics coating on the outer surface. As per U.S. Customs and Border Protection laboratory analysis, style #TG67790 has been found to be constructed with an outer shell made of 66.2% polyester, 33.8% cotton knitted fabric, and style #TG67791 has been found to be constructed with an outer shell made of 67.4% polyester, 32.6% cotton knitted fabric. For both styles, the coating exceeds 50% of the weight of the knitted coated polyester/cotton fabric. The coating is also featured on the complete thumb and forefinger of both styles. The gloves also feature a ribbed knit cuff, a100% polyester knitted fabric on the remainder of the backside, and a separate inner liner made of knitted polyester pile fabric.
