RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s knit top from Cambodia.

Dear Ms. Grible:

In your letter dated February 22, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample, Style #3T4441, is a woman’s top constructed from 100% cotton knit fabric. The fabric of the garment has an all-over printed floral design. The top features a V-neckline in front with shaping below the bust, straps that criss-cross in back, and a hemmed bottom.

In your ruling request, you recommended classification of the submitted top under HTS 6109.10.0060 as a tank top. The garment has shaping below the bust and is therefore is precluded from being classified as a tank top or similar to under HTS 6109.

We are returning your sample as you requested.
