Dear Mr. Ashear:

You have submitted a sample of a form-fitting glove made of soft goatskin leather, style #20771001, that you state will be marketed as lightweight shooting gloves. Knit polyester inserts featuring a camouflage print are located on the backside knuckles, on a portion of the backside fingers, and covering the hook and loop fastener located on the backside wrist. The glove also features fourchettes, a partially elasticized wrist, and will be sold on a hanger that will feature either the “Remington” or “Winchester” trademark. The gloves will also be offered in other camouflage prints as style #20771006, 20771007, and #20771009. The glove shows design for use in the sport of hunting.

The applicable subheading for the above styles will be 4203.21.8060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for articles of apparel and clothing accessories, of leather or of composition leather: gloves, mittens and mitts: specially designed for use in sports: otherother.
