RE: The tariff classification of a men's and boy's knit jacket
Dear Mr. Maxwell:
In your letter dated May 18, 1990, you requested a tariff
classification ruling and a country of origin marking determination
on behalf of E.S. Originals Inc.
The subject sample, Style No. F0005, is a man's long sleeved
jacket which is constructed from both knit and woven fabric. The
garment features a full front, zippered opening; a convertible
collar; and elasticized rib knit cuffs and waistband. The knit
portions of the garment are constructed from 65 percent polyester,
35 percent cotton, finely knit fabric which is napped on the inside
surface. The woven portions of the garment are constructed from
65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton woven sheeting. Your
letter states that the garment will be manufactured in men's sizes
small, medium, large, and extra-large and boy's sizes 8 through 20.
The visible knit portions of the jacket consist of the entire
back panel; the right sleeve with the exception of a two and one-
half inch wide woven fabric portion on the upper arm; the entire
left sleeve; the lower portion of each front panel; and two
horizontal strips of fabric on the upper left front. The woven
portions of the garment consist of the convertible collar; a two and
one-half inch wide portion on the upper right arm; and the upper
portion of each front panel except for two horizontal knit strips
on the left front panel.
You have indicated in your correspondence that an Olympic
logo displaying five interlocking hoops, a stylized flame and the
letters "USA" will be affixed to the left front panel of the
garment. Without further documentation regarding the trademark
status of this logo, we are unable to respond to your request as to
the acceptability of the country of origin marking of this garment.
You should submit a sample of the garment and information
concerning the trademark status of the logo used, and any
supporting documentation to:
