RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s sunsuit from Macau

Dear Ms. Root:

In your letter dated October 23, 2007 you requested a classification ruling on behalf of your client Sugartown Worldwide, Inc.

Style 67386 is a woman’s one piece garment similar to a sunsuit constructed from 74 percent cotton and 26 percent polyester pile knit fabric. The pile is constructed from 100 percent cotton. The strapless garment extends from above the bust to the thigh. The top of the garment is elasticized with a drawstring. The garment features an elasticized waist, two pockets below the waist with a button closure and hemmed shorts style leg openings.

We are returning your sample as you requested.

The applicable subheading for style 67386 will be 6114.20.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Other garments, knitted or crocheted: Of cotton: sunsuits, washsuits, one-piece playsuits and similar apparel: Women’s. The duty rate will be 10.8% ad valorem.
