P. A. LUCKETT.
UNDERGARMENL APPLICATION man JULY 29.1919.
Patented May 4, 1920.
PHILIP A. LUCKETT 0F PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
UNDERGARMENT.
Specification of Letters Patent. Patented May 4;, 1920.
Application filed July 29, 1919. Serial No. 314,033.
I '0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, PHILIP A. LUCKETT, a citizen of the United States, residing at Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Improvements in Undergan ments, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to under garments and particularly to drop seat structure therein.
The object of my invention is to provide an under-garment having a drop seat opening at both sides below the waist line and secured by only a single fastening means. I also provide a drop seat having asingle fastening means located near the center of the back, allowing the seat flap to drop symmetrically. A further object is'to provide a drop seat having a single fastening, and one which has no tendency to gap, though it provides a transverse opening across substantially the entire width of the garment. 7
Numerous attempts have been made to provide a practical drop seat structure having only one detachable fastening, the convenience of which is obvious. Such structures, however, have uniformly been made unsymmetrical, opening from one'side only and requiring considerable stretching and distortion of the arment to provide an adequate opening. buch garments furthermore have a tendency to gap and sag due to the fact that-they have a transverse upper edge" supported at its opposite ends only. In my improved garment I combine the convenience of a single detachable connection with the full opening advantages of the usual straight top drop seat, opening down both sides, and further arrange the parts of the garment so that the tendency to gap is eliminated. Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which;
Figure 1, is a rear View of the garment showing the flap in closed position;
Fig. 2, is a similar view showing the flap open.
My inventionincludes a union garment having the usual front portion 10 which preferably is open from the neck to a point near the crotch with the usual detachable connections for the edges thereof. It also has the usual rear body portion 11. The
seat portion isformed by an upward continuation of the rear leg-portions 12 and is tapered from points 13 in the side seams to form a triangular seat flap 14: having a button hole at its upper pointed end 15 adapted to engage a button 16 at approximately the waist line of the wearer. The upper edges of said flap 1 1 are preferably slightly concave from points 13 to end 15 to decrease any tendency to gap at this point and to insure a snug fit along the curve of the wearers body.
lVhile the seat flap has been described as extending to the side seams of the garment it will be apparent that the garment may be constructed without side seams, the front portions of the garment being cut to extend around the sides and rear of the legs to form the seat flap. Regardless of the exact method of constructing the seat, the opening will extend substantially across the entire width of the garment. This will permit points 13 to be located relatively high in the legs, an advantage over former structures where the opening along the side seam was at one side of the body only and pad to extend nearlyto the bottom of the The rear body portion 11 is extended downwardly below the waist line and has its lower edge underlying and spaced at an approximately uniform distance from the upper edge of the seat flap 14. This arrangement, as will be seen from Fig. 2, produces a sharp upward curve in the middle portion of said lower edge of the rear body portion 11, which underlies flap 14. This upward curve is of decided advantage in accommodating the garment to forward bending motions which make it necessary for the seat of the garment either to expand substantially or to bind the wearer. It will be apparent that if the lower edge of this underlying portion were even approximately straight, it would bind sharply across the wearers buttocks. If desired this extension of the rear body portion below the waist line may be composed of a separate piece of material 19.
To facilitate bending of the body in a forward direction I may insert an elastic element in the vertical line of the upper end 1.5 of the seat flap 14. This elastic element may consist of the common transverse elastic strip 17 located at the waist line between rear body portion. 11 and its extension 19,
or it may consist of an elastic strip located in the flap 14, preferably adjacent the tip 15 thereof as shown at 18. If desired both these strips may be used as illustrated in:
applicable to nether garments, and that numerous changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit of my invention as covered in the claims.
What I claim is:
1. A union undergarm'ent having a substantially triangular drop seat su )ported in closed position by a single d'etac able fastner located adjacent the center of the back,
the edges of said drop seat extending downwardly and outwardly from said fastener t0 the side seams of the garment to form an opening, extending substantially across the entire width of the rear portion of the garment.
2. A union undergarment having a drop seat supported in closed position by a single detachable fastener located adjacent the center of the back, the edges of said seat extending downwardly and outwardly from said fastener to the side seams of the garment to form an opening extending substan tially across the entire width of the rear por tion of the garment, said edge portions being concave to permit them to conformaccurately to the contour of the body regardless of bending movements of the wearer.
3. A union undergarment having a drop,
seat supported in closed position by a single detachable fastener located adjacent the center-of the'back, theedges of said seat extending downwardly and outwardly from said fastener to the side seams of the garment to form an opening extending substantially across the entire width of the-rear portion of the garment, and a transversely arranged elastic insert located in the vertical line of the detachable fastener and adapted to yield under forward bending movements of the body to reduce the strain on said fastener. I
4. A union undergarment having a drop seat supported in closed position by a single detachable fastener located adjacent the center of the back, the edges of said seat extending downwardly and outwardly from said fastener to the side seams of the garment to form an opening extending substantially across the entire width of the rear portion of the garment, and a transversely arranged elastic insert located in the drop seat adjacent the detachable fastener and extending from. edge to edge thereof and adapted" to* yield under forward movements of the body to reduce thev strain on said fastener.
5. A union undergarment having a drop seat supported in closed position by asingle detachable fastener located adjacent the center of the back, the edges of said seat extending downwardly and outwardly from said fastener to the side seams of the garment, and a skirt portion connected to the upper back portion of thegarment' and extending downwardly beneath the seat, the lower edge of the skirt'portion beinglocat'ed below and spaced from the upper edges of the seat throughout the entire width of the garment, said lower edge" being curved upwardly adjacent the center line of the garment to prevent constriction of the body during forward bending movements.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set In hand.
