RE: The tariff classification of a dog sweater from Hong Kong or China.

Dear Ms. Bennett:

In your letter dated April 3, 2008, on behalf of your client Global Knits Corporation, you requested a classification ruling.

The garment has a rib-knit neck opening, rib-knit cuffs for the front paws and rib-knit at the waist. The garment also has two rib-knit rear leg loops. The purpose of the leg loops is to hold the sweater onto the hind legs of the dog. The dog sweater features a snowman motif, located on the back of the garment. This sample is being returned to you as requested.
