RE: The tariff classification of gloves from China

Dear Ms. Helm:

In your letter dated July 10, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The submitted samples will be returned.

Style 0775 is a man’s golf glove that is constructed with a complete palmside from fingertips to wrist, and a complete forefinger, constructed of a synthetic leather material. The balance of the backside and fourchettes feature a finely knitted nylon fabric that has been brushed on the underside. The tight fitting golf glove also features a backside center vented cuff that contains a finely knitted fabric insert, which is secured by a hoop and loop fastener. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the synthetic leather palm.

The applicable subheading for style 0775 will be 6216.00.4600, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts: other: of man-made fibers: other gloves, mittens and mitts, all the foregoing specially designed for use in sports, including ski and snowmobile gloves, mittens and mitts.
