Dear Ms. Pate:

In your letter dated February 9, 2007, on behalf of Kayser-Roth Corporation, 102 Corporate Center Blvd., Greensboro, NC 27208, you requested a classification ruling. Your samples are being returned as requested.

The garment features a mock collar, long sleeves with layered cuffs, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front vertical pockets at the waist, and a hemmed bottom. The pockets are finished with layered fabric. The sleeve cuffs, the side seams, the center front panels, and the bottom have topstitching. Decorative printing is on the left sleeve in the cuff area.

Style PJ74148 is a sleeveless cardigan that is constructed from 95% cotton, 5% spandex jersey knit fabric. The garment features a hood, a full front opening with a zipper closure, 2 front vertical pockets in the waist area, and a hemmed bottom. The armholes and pockets are finished with layered fabric.
