RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit garment from Turkey

Dear Ms. Long:

In your letter dated August 12, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The provided sample is being returned as per your request.

Style THORA is a woman’s cut and sewn sleeveless pullover made of 100% rayon finely knitted fabric whose outer surface measures more than 9 stitches per 2 centimeters in the direction in which the stitches are formed. The garment simulates a tank-styled garment worn over a sleeveless scooped neck pullover. The garment is constructed from two panels (a front and a back panel) that are seamed at the sides and the shoulders. The submitted size small sample measures approximately 41 inches in length and the garment bottom is tank-styled. The wearer folds the garment bottom and brings the tank-styled straps up over the shoulders. The folded pullover garment extends to below the waist area. “Punk Princess” in printed at the upper right side of the front panel. Based on construction and styling, the garment is properly classified as an other pullover under 6110, HTSUS. Therefore, your assertion for classification as a 6114 garment is not applicable.

The applicable subheading for style THORA will be 6110.30.3059, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for sweaters, pullovers, sweatshirts, waistcoats (vests) and similar articles, knitted or crocheted: of man-made fibers: other: other: other: Women’s: other. The rate of duty will be 32%.
