06/22/2018

Beginning today, U.S. exports to the European Union will face an extra duty at their border. The duty will be levied against a range of products including agricultural goods and steel and aluminum, as well as many fashion and apparel articles, each of which will be assessed an additional 25 percent ad valorem tariff penalty:

Here is a list of the apparel and footwear products affected by the tariffs:

*61091000 T-shirts, singlets and other vests of cotton, knitted or crocheted  

*61099020 T-shirts, singlets and other vests of wool or fine animal hair or man-made fibers, knitted or crocheted
