UNION SUIT.
APPLICATION FILED OCT. 16, 1920.
Patented Jan. 24, 1922.
FRANK HARVEY MILLER, OF MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA.
UNION SUIT.
Specification of Letters Patent. P t t d Jan. 24., 1922.
Application filed October 16, 1920. Serial No. 417,315.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANK H. llIILLnR, a citizen of the United States residing at Montgomery, in the county of Montgomery and State of Alabama, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Union I uits, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in apparel and while it was particularly devised to furnish an improved garment for children, nevertheless a garment constructed according to my invention, may be used for various purposes.
.The principal object of the invention is to provide a garment of simple and inexpensive construction, which may be easily and speedily placed on or removed from the wearer. 7
A further object of the invention is to provide a bifurcated garment in which two buttons only are employed for the purpose of securing the waist and the rear panel of the trouser portion in place. i I
With the foregoing objects outlined and with other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the inven tion consists in the novel features hereinafter described in detail, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and more particularly Jointed out in the appended claims.
Re 'erring to the drawings:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of one form of the garment as worn upon the person.
Fig. 2 is a front view of the improved garment.
Fig. 3 is a rear View of the same, with the rear flaps and panel closed. r
Fig. at is a rear view of the garment with the flaps opened and the panel lowered.
Fig. 5 is a detail view of a slight modification. t
Fig. 6 is a detail sectional view of the modification.
In the drawing, 1 represents a bifurcated union garment which, in the present instance, comprises a shirt or waistportion 2, having a solid or unbroken front and a back formed of a plurality of overlappingflaps ,3. Each of the flaps 3 has an outwardly inclined side edge 4 and an are shaped lower edge 5, the length of the latter being substantially the same as the distance between the opposite sides of the garment.
The garment also includes a trouser portion 6, the upper edge of the front of which is connected to the lower edge of the front of the shirt portion and a waist band 7 is provided between these edges. This waist band is provided in the preferred embodiment of my invention as shown in Figs. 1 to l, inclusive, with two buttons 8 which are arranged at the opposite sides of the trouser portion. The flaps 3 of the shirt portion of the garment, are provided at their corners with button holes 9 which, when the flaps are overlapped, are designed to engage with the buttons 8 forthe purpose of holding the flaps in overlapped position to form the rear of the shirt portion.
The trouser portion 6 is provided with a drop flap or panel 10 provided at its corners with button holes 11 designed to receive the buttons 8 after the flaps 3 have been secured to the same.
From the foregoing Ibelieve the basic idea of myinvention will be readily understood, but to render the same absolutely clear, I may state that in placing the garment on the wearer, the legs are first placed through the bifurcated portion of the trousers 6, the arms are then inserted in the sleeves 12, and then the flaps 3 are folded and overlapped across the back and secured to the buttons 8. Finally the rear flap or panel 10 is moved upwardly and secured to the buttons 8. It will be noted that the are shaped edges project below the waist line, when the flaps are overlapped, and this downwardly extending part prevents exposure to the person should the panel 10 sag. v
In the modification of the invention shown in Figs. 5 and 6, the buttons 8 instead of being secured to the waist band, are provided at the corners of the flaps 3 and the waist band and panel are provided with button holes 9*"- and 11 through which these buttons are inserted. With this construction, the flaps 3 are overlapped across the back and the buttons at their ends are in sorted through the button holes 9, and finally the buttons are placed through the button holes 11 to hold the rear panel in place, or one end of flap 3 can be thus arranged with button and end of other flap with button hole as first described.
While I have described and illustrated the preferred embodiment of my invention, I am aware that various changes and modifications may be made in the embodiment shown without departing from the spirit of the invention as setforth in the claims.
The invention possesses the following advantages over garments now in generaluse. First, it is of simple design and easily donned or removed. Second, the construction is suitable for union underwear for adults and children and it may be used in making outer garments for children as well as worklng' suits and overalls for adults.
Third, it can be placed on the wearer without putting the garment over the head. Fourth, the overlapping flaps at the-rear provide extra warmth for the kidneys and vital organs in cold climates, while affording additional protection to the spine in hot sizes. What Iclaim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is c 1. A bifurcatedgarment including a shirt,
portion and a trouser portion, the shirt portion being providedwith overlapping flaps, each flap extending from the top of the garment to the waist line andhaving allower' edge which extends from one side of the garment to the opposite side, a drop rear panel provided at the rear of the trouser portion,
and a single fastening means connecting a corner of the panel and a corner of one of' said flaps to the waist line portion of the garment at one side of the garment.
2. A union garment including an upper shirt portion and alower portion connected thereto by a waist band, the shirt portion beingprovided with overlapping flaps, each flap extending from the top of the garment to the waist line and having a lower edge which extends from one side of the garment to the opposite side, the lower portion being provided with a drop panel, and fastening means securing the corners of the flaps and the corners of said panel to the waist band portion ofthe garment at the sides'of the garment.
3; A bifurcated union garment including a shirt portion and a trouser portion, the shirt portion being provided at its rear with overlapping flaps, each of which is provided with a downwardly and outwardlyiinc-lined side edge and a substantially horizontal lower edge, the lower edge extending from one side of the 'armentto the opposite side, the rear of saic trouser portion being provided with a drop flap, and fastening means securing the corners of the flaps and the corners of said panel to the waist band of the garment at the sides of the garment.
'4. A bifurcated union garment including a waist portion having a waist band, over lapping flaps forming part of the waistfportion and provided at the rear of the gar-' ment, eachflap extending from the top of the garment to the waist line andhaving a lower edge which extends from one side'of' the garment to the opposite side, a trouser portion, a drop, panel for. the trouser portion, and a single button for securing one of the corners of one of saidfiaps and one ofthe corners of the panel to the waistband of the garment at one side ofthe garment. V V
5. A bifurcated garment including a waist portion having a waist band,overlapping flaps forming part of the waist portion and provided at the rear of the garment, each of said flaps having a sideedge-whichis inclined downwardly and outwardly from one side of the neck portion to the opposite side of the waist band, and each flap having I a lower edge which extends from one side of the garment to the opposite side, a trouser portion having its frontsecured to the waist band and its rear provided .with a drop seat panel having an'upper edge which. extendsfrom one side of the garment to the other side, a'single fastening means connecting the corner of one flap to one of the corners of the drop seat panel, and a single fastening means connecting the corner of the other flap to the other corner of the panel, said fastening means constituting the only fastening for securing the garment wearers body;
