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

Dear Ms. York:

In your letter dated June 4, 2007, on behalf of Target Stores, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 210688, is a man’s hip-length jacket with a shell composed of a woven 100% cotton twill fabric and a lining composed of a woven 100% cotton fabric in the body and a woven 100% polyester in the sleeves, which are quilted together in a vertical pattern with a nonwoven batting fill in between.

The jacket has a fold-down pointed spread collar, a full front opening secured by six left-over-right, rivet-type button closures, epaulets with a one-button closure on the shoulders and long sleeves that have a gusset fabric insert at the wrist area and a one-button closure on the cuffs. The jacket also has two chest pockets with a one-button flap closure, two front slash pockets at the waist, four inner pockets and a curved bottom hem. Each button features the “Mossimo Denim Est 1987” tradename.

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