SPORT VLSOR CAP.

Application filed January 13, 1927. Serial No. 160,843.

This invention relates to that type of caps which are adapted for useas eye shades or ,for sport wear and which are. known as visor caps for the reason that as much of the head of the wearer is left uncovered as is possible. In caps of this type 1t 1s customary to use a substantially horizontalparts in place.

ly arranged circular band to surround the head for supporting the cap. Such bands are usually made narrow and are adapted to be held in place by an elastic section there-1 in. This results in considerable pressure upon the forehead by' the tensioned band which tends to prevent proper circulation of the blood and leaves a red mark on the forehead. To avoid this objection, I prefer to provide a forehead piece of peculiar shape at the front of the cap for distributing the pressure on-the forehead, and I prefer further to secure the forehead piece to the visor through the intermediary of the front por-= tion of said band 'by novel structure'as wilL appear hereinafter.

The various objects of my invention will be clear from the description which follows and from the drawings, in which, Fig. 1 is a side view of my improved cap showing in particular my novel form of head stra Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the same. Fig. 3 is a vertical central section through the front portion of the cap showing the arrangefiient of and the means for securing the Fig. 4 is a vertical section through the I rear portion of the head band showing the 1 means for securing the head strap to the head band. 1

' Fig. 5 is an elevation of the piece of material slitted to form the head strap show: ing how the piece may be stretched or ex;

panded to form the strap.

F 1g. 6 1s a perspective view ofa modified form of my improved visor cap. Fig. 7 is a vertical central section of the cap shown in 6 and Fig. 8 is a vertical section through the headband of the cap shown in Fig. 6.

In the practicalembodiment of my invention, I provide a continuous headband 10 which is preferably formed of two layers of material. The outer layer or strip 11 is preferably made of leather, imitation leather, or similar material, while the nner strip 12 after the ends 24 of the adapt, itself to fit heads of various sizes.

Referring to the modification shown in Figs. 1 to 5 inclusive, the visor 15 is arranged with the upper edge' 16 thereof outside of and slightly overlappingthe lower edge 17 of the headband, said edges 16 and 17 being seamed together by suitable stitch-.

ing such as zig-zag overcast stitching 18 whereby-the visor is secured to and conceals part of the headband. The forehead'menb,

ber 19 is made preferably widest at the front central shaped to taper to a point at the sides .20 thereof so that thegreatest area of contact thereof with the forehead of the wearer occurs at the place wherethe pressure on the forelfead is greatest. Both the -visor and forehead member are preferably made of .suitable resilient, flexible and transparent material such as celluloid or the like, adapted to resist the passage of light, but sufliciently transparent to allow proper vision therethrough. The edges 21 and 22 of the visor and forehead'member respectively may be finished or bound by means of suitable binding material as 42 covering and stitched about said edges. The forehead member is preferably inserted between the strips 11 and 12 of the headband so as to allow the insertion of the head strap endsv24 outside of the forehead member and inside of the strip 11, all of the parts mentioned being then seamedtogether. by the stitching 23 head strap 25 have been inserted in place, whereby the lower edge of the member 19- is secured between the upper edges of the strips 11 and 12. The stitching 23 is continued about the up per edges of the headband and serves to secure the stripsll and 12 in place, while the stitching 18 is similarl continued and serves the same purpose. gaid ends 24 are preferably arranged at equally spaced intervals in order to properly support the cap on thehead and 3.1108. The head strap 25 will now be described.

to present "a pleasing appearpart thereof and is preferably A preferably rectangular piece 26 of fle'xible material, such as leather, fabric or. the like is suitably slitted to allow the expansion thereof without severance, preferably by means of a series of parallel straight slits 27, 28 and 29 arranged perpendicularly to the edges 30 and 31 in order to conserve material. 'The various slits are so arranged as to leave a top portion 40 of little depth entirely unmutilated, and a series of portions 41 intermediate of the edges 30 and 31 cut' by alternate long slits into parts of a width substantially twice that of the distance between adjacent slits, by means of which each pair of adjacent strap members 32 are joined together. An aligned pair of slits 27. and 28 extend from a point just below the edge' 31 to the bottom edge 30 with an interruption at the portion 41, whereby a pair of- 'ber of-lodse unattache members 32, upon members 32 is formed joined at 41. It therefore becomes possible to separate adjacent strap members on each side of theslit 28 slightly, and on each side of the slit 27 to a considerable extent. Similarly a separating slit 29 is made between the ad acent pairsof' slits 27 and 28, about which the major part of the adjacent members 32 may be wid 1y separated. The lower end ofthe slit 29 is spaced considerably above the bottom edge 30 and ends at a point below the upper end of the slit 28 all of said "slits be ing preferably parallel and beginning below the top edge 31. The piece 26 remains pref-' erably unsevered at the top edge 31 th'ercof, so that the iece may be readily handled yvithout the isadvanta e of having a numends dangling uncontrolledly at 'the, top. The distance between said slits is s uch 'as'to provide strap members 32 of predetermined width through out the major portion of the len h thereof, while the ends 33 and 34 of ad acent strap members are of twice said predetermined width and the juncture of adjacent strap members 32 at points 41 intermediate at the ends thereof is substantially the same width as the ends 33' and 34. The u per ends34 may be spread if desired by a nal severing cut just before saidends are seamed to the circular finished member 35 or said ends may be left unsevered and seamed in a circle' to said finished piece by suitable stitching as 36. The ends 33-after being equally spaced about the headband except at the elastic portion 14, are secured in place as hereinefore described between thestrips 11 and 12 of the headband 10 whereby the'piece 26 is stretched, expanded or spacedapart in a design of pleasing appearance which design ay upon the amount of tension put on t e strap. the distances between the ends 33 and the arrangement and shapes of the various slits. In any case, I refer to so arrange the slits that [the attached orlength of said members,

. multiplicity of such straps,

forehead member strips 11 and 12.

be varied in various ways depending posed visor of flexible,

meme? tions 33, 41 and 34 of adjacent strapmembers are alternately arranged along the the ortions 33 and 34 being substantially opposite each other.

While I have shown straight, parallel slits in the piece 26 to conserve material, it will be understood that curved, triangular or other shaped openings may be madeinsaid piece to produce designs varying in appearance, while resulting in strap members attached to each other and capable of being spread apart to act as head supports.

Inthe modification shown in Fig. 6., the strap'member 25 is omitted and may be replaced by a suitable head strap as 43 or a if desired; Since the strapends 33 are omitted it becomes unnecessary to insert lower edge 44 of the 19 between the headband Said edge portion '44 may therefore be placed on the outside of the headband 10\. and seamed thereto by suitable stitching huch gheeby the'visor is attached to said headan It willbe seen that the forehead member as the overcast zig-u zag stitching 45 -in the same manner as that distributes the pressure ofythe headband over a considerable area .of the wearers forehead thereby preventing the uncomfortable effects of-constriction and further shutting oil any ossible glare which might reach the eyes t rough any space between the visor end and the forehea d. By connecting the forehead member to the visor through the medium of the headband, the I transparent sections mentionedmay be relatively manipulated when desired about the headband as a hinge. It will however, be seen that -I have provided a strap of pleas- .ing appearance which can'be economically manufactured and which I of the wearer a ainst disorder in the high winds. It will sonof the peculiar construction ofthe head- .band andpf the method of chain the foreheadpiece and 7 visor toget er *I' ave pro-- duced a simple, economical and efiicient structure, wel adapted for the purposs'for which it is intended.

Since various modifications .of' the illustrated embodiment of myainvention are con tem lated, I do not intend to limitmyself to t e exact structure shown and described} butjintend. to avail myself of the range 0 protects theheir, I

seen finally that by rea- 1 equivalents afiorded by the appended claims.
