Dear Ms. Pu:

In your letter dated November 16, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling. As requested, the samples will be returned to you.

You submitted two samples. Style #YY001 is a pair of boy’s shorts constructed of 100% polyester woven fabric. The shorts feature an enclosed elasticized waist, a mesh liner and hemmed bottoms.

Style #YY002 is a pair of boy’s shorts constructed of 100% polyester woven fabric. The shorts feature a partially elasticized waist, fly front opening with a hook and loop closure, four grommets with a cord closure, mesh liner and hemmed bottoms.
