RE: The tariff classification of a cardigan from China

Dear Mr. Gomez:

In your letter dated May 9, 2007, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Pak International, Inc.

The cardigan extends to below the waist and features a zippered full front opening with a v-shaped front neckline, a hemmed bottom and hemmed long sleeves.

The garment is not made up of fabric of heading 5903, HTSUS, therefore, Style PUG-4286j cannot be classified in heading 6113, HTSUS. The garment is properly classified as a knitted polyester cardigan under 6110.30.3059, HTSUS.
