The garment features a 100% polyester woven lining, a full front zippered opening, a mock-neck collar, two inset pockets at the waist, and a hemmed bottom.

The applicable subheading for the vest will be 6110.30.3035, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers : other: other: other: other: Vests, other than sweater vests: women’s or girls’.
