RE: The tariff classification of a man’s jacket from Indonesia

Dear Ms. Kim:

In your letter dated April 11, 2007, on behalf of Hojeon Limited, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, item number HJ070330, is a man’s lightweight baseball style jacket with a shell composed of a woven 94% polyester/6% spandex fabric with a visible polyurethane membrane on the inner surface. The jacket is lined with a knit 100% polyester tricot fabric in the body and a woven man-made fiber fabric in the sleeves.

The jacket has a stand-up collar composed on the outer surface of a ribbed-knit fabric, a full front opening secured by a zipper closure that extends to the top of the collar, long sleeves with ribbed-knit fabric cuffs, a rubber patch depicting a baseball team’s initials on the left sleeve, an embroidered logo on the right sleeve and a rubber batter patch on the center portion of the rear panel at the nape of the neck. The jacket has two front on-seam pockets at the waist, a zippered inner pocket, a label with the “Therma Base” trademark on the lower portion of the left front panel and a ribbed-knit fabric waistband.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.

The applicable subheading for the jacket will be 6210.40.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Garments, made up of fabrics of heading 5602, 5603, 5903, 5906 or 5907: Other men’s or boys’ garments: Of man-made fibers: Other: Anoraks, windbreakers and similar articles.
