It features cuffed leg openings, a wide waistband with five belt loops, a front zipper and a button closure above the zipper. It has two side pockets and one small welt pocket in the front and two back pockets with a button closure.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for style F56V6 will be 6204.61.9010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Women’s trousers: Of wool: Other: Women’s. The duty rate will be 13.6% ad valorem.
