RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s jacket from China

Dear Ms. Greener:

In your letter dated April 2, 2008, you requested a classification ruling.

The sample submitted, style number 006-6592, is a woman’s hip-length jacket with a shell composed of a woven 100% polyester fabric that has a visible polyurethane coating on the inner surface. The jacket is lined in the body and hood with a knit polyester fleece fabric and in the sleeves with a woven man-made fiber fabric that is quilted to a nonwoven batting insulation. In your letter you indicate that the jacket will also be imported under style numbers 006-6593 in petite sizes, 006-6594 and 006-6595 in tall sizes.

The jacket has an integral hood with a drawcord tightening, a full front opening secured by a zipper closure, long sleeves with partial elastic and a tab with a hook and loop fastener on the cuffs, two front pockets with zipper closures at the waist, a pocket with a hook and loop fastener on the inner portion of the left placket, and a drawcord tightening through the bottom hem.

The sample is being returned to you as you have requested.
