The submitted sample is an Item Number 6861021-LJUG (M) and 6861023 (L) shrug-like garment, which you refer to as a cotton twill bolero. The shrug-like garment is constructed of woven cotton twill fabric. The well-made garment features knit polyester sleeves, finished neck, large metal grommets, a sewn-on rhinestone skull on the back panel and contrasting color edging. The garment is part of a mix and match assortment for a punk teen costume.

The applicable subheading for the Item Number 6861021-LJUG (M) and 6861023 (L) shrug-like garment will be 6211.42.0081, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Track-suits, ski-suits and swimwear: other garments: Other garments, women’s or girls’: Of cotton: Other. The rate of duty will be 8.8 percent ad valorem.
