RE: The tariff classification of a women’s track suit from Bangladesh

Dear Mr. Mason:

In your letter dated February 21, 2008, you requested a classification ruling.

The item in question, style MJ3, is a women’s jogging suit consisting of a jacket and trousers set, both made from a woven 100% polyester fabric with a mesh lining. The sample jacket is predominantly yellow, with smaller portions of blue and white inserts, while the trousers are blue with yellow piping in the outside seams, to coordinate with the jacket. The garments are sold as a set.

The jacket has a full front opening with a zipper closure that extends to the top of the collar, long sleeves with elasticized ends, slant pockets at the waist and an elasticized drawstring through the bottom hem.

The trousers have legs that extend to the ankles, an elasticized waistband with a drawstring and on-seam front pockets. There is no opening at the waist.

The applicable subheading for the trousers portion of style MJ3 will be 6211.43.0040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other women’s or girls’ garments, of man-made fibers: track suits: trousers. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the jacket portion of style MJ3 will be 6211.43.0050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other women’s or girls’ garments, of man-made fibers: track suits: other. The duty rate will be 16 percent ad valorem.

The jacket portion of style MJ3 falls within textile category 635; the pants portion falls within textile category 648.
