RE: The tariff classification of three women’s knitted garments from China.

Dear Ms. Giasson:

In your letter dated March 26, 2007, you requested a classification ruling. As requested, your samples are being returned to you.

All three garments are women’s pullovers constructed from 95% cotton and 5% spandex knit fabric. The outer surface of the fabric for all three styles measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction that the stitches were formed.

Style number ASL-39-07 features a mandarin collar, a v-shaped neckline, long set-in hemmed sleeves, a flocking pattern on the left sleeve, and a hemmed bottom.

Style number ATL-37-07 features a v-neckline, long set-in sleeves, and has a layered raw edge finish at the sleeves, neckline and bottom.

Your suggested classification for styles ASL-39-07 and ATL-37-07 under 6109, HTSUS, is not applicable as ladies pullovers are provided for under 6110, HTSUS.

Style number ASL-30-07 features a v-neckline with a beaded appliqué on the front panel, long set-in sleeves with gathered elasticized stitching at the bottom, and a two inch self-fabric bottom band with four horizontal rows of elasticized stitching.

The applicable subheading for all three styles will be 6110.20.2079, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of cotton: other: other: women’s or girls’: other. The duty rate will be 16.5%.
