      • - one garment designed to cover the lower part of the body and consisting of trousers, breeches or shorts (other than swimwear), a skirt or a divided skirt, having neither braces nor bibs.
    • All of the components of a ‘suit’ must be of the same fabric construction, colour and composition; they must also be of the same style and of corresponding or compatible size. However, these components may have piping (a strip of fabric sewn into the seam) in a different fabric.
    • If several separate components to cover the lower part of the body are presented together (for example, two pairs of trousers or trousers and shorts, or a skirt or divided skirt and trousers), the constituent lower part shall be one pair of trousers or, in the case of women’s or girls’ suits, the skirt or divided skirt, the other garments being considered separately.
    • The term ‘suit’ includes the following sets of garments, whether or not they fulfil all the above conditions:
      • - morning dress, comprising a plain jacket (cutaway) with rounded tails hanging well down at the back and striped trousers;

Additional chapter notes

  • For this purpose, the fabric used can be unbleached, bleached, dyed, of yarns of different colours or printed.
  • Sets of garments are not regarded as ensembles when their components are made up in different fabrics, even if the difference is due only to their respective colours.
  • All the components of an ensemble must be presented together for retail sale as a single unit. Individual wrapping or separate labelling of each component of such a single unit does not influence its classification as an ensemble.

  • 2. Headings 6209 and 6216 cover gloves, mittens and mitts, impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber, even if they are:
    • - made up from textile fabrics (other than knitted or crocheted) impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber of headings 5903 or 5906, or
    • - made up from unimpregnated, uncoated or uncovered textile fabrics (other than knitted or crocheted) and subsequently impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber.
  • Where textile fabrics (other than knitted or crocheted) serve only as reinforcement, gloves, mittens or mitts impregnated, coated or covered with cellular plastics or cellular rubber belong in Chapters 39 or 40, even if they are made up from unimpregnated, uncoated or uncovered textile fabrics (other than knitted or crocheted) and subsequently impregnated, coated or covered with cellular plastics or cellular rubber (Note 2(a)(5) and note 4, last paragraph to Chapter 59).
