The garment also features long sleeves, a mandarin collar, left breast pocket, a pocket on the sleeve and a full front double breasted button closure that closes left over right and right over left.

The applicable subheading for Style 55004 will be 6206.40.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for "Women’s or girls’ blouses, shirts and shirt-blouses: Of man-made fibers: Other: Other, Other: Women’s."
