RE: The tariff classification of a pair of women’s pants from China.

Dear Ms. Jue:

In your letter dated August 14, 2007, oh behalf of your client Choice Ki Chang dba Choice Co., you requested a classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #325, is a pair of women’s pants constructed from 92% nylon, and 8% spandex knit fabric. The pants feature a rib knit waistband, and two inch rib knit cuffs finishing the pants legs.

We are returning your sample as you suggested.
