SIGMUN D WOISLAWSKY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

REVERSIBLE COAT.

Application filed December 11, 1925. Serial No. 74,686.

This invention relates to improvements in reversible coats.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a reversible coat with an improved collar and lapel construction, which, when reversed, will readily assume a normal smooth position on the line of fold.

Heretofore reversible coats have been suggested but in reversing the coat the collar and lapels have not assumed a neat, smooth and dress-like appearance because of the absence of a suitable common line of flGXUl'C along which the collar and lapel.) might be folded as the coat was changed from its natural to its reversed position. Thus, if the coat of the prior art was constructed to be worn in one manner and the reverse side was to be worn only occasionally no suitable means were provided which would permit the collar and lapels to properly fold in a dress-like manner when the coat was turned to be worn in its reversed position.

The purpose of the present invention is to avoid the unsightly appearance of the coat in which the collar and lapels cannot be reversed so that they will assumeanatural dress-like appearance, and means are provided, therefore, to have a definite line of demarcation which forms a continous fold line through the collar portion and both lapels, upon which said collar and lapels are folded when the coat is reversed.

Further objects and advantages will be apparent from the following specification and the accompanying drawing illustrating a preferred embodiment of the invention and in which drawings Figure 1 is a front elevation of a reversible coat embodying my invention;

Fig. 2 is a View of the collar and lapels, with the outer fabric removed to show their interior construction;

Fig. 3 is a rear elevation of Fig. 2 with the outer fabric of only the collar portion removed Fig. 4 is a section on the line H of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 5 is a section similar to Fig. 4 showing the lapel in one of its folded positions in fidl' lines, and in its reversed position in dotted lines.

Referring more particularly to the drawings, the coat is formed of practically two independent coats, one of which may be made of a waterproof material 10, and the the coat is worn as a raincoat the other of a suitable coat fabric 11.. WVhen waterproof material is worn outermost and the coat fabric serves as its lining. coat is reversed, it serves as an overcoat. Obviously any other combination of materials could be used. I

The collar 12 and lapels 18 are formed preferably offthe same material as either of the coat bodies and thus correspond to the material of the body of the coat irrespective of how it is worn.

As shown more particularly in Fig. 5 of the drawings, the lapel is formed by attaching a piece of the coat material l lto the waterproof material of the body, as, at 15, and at its outer extremity, by attaching,

as at 15 a piece of water proof material 1& which extends to the coat material of the body. Thus, when used as an overcoat, the waterproof material on the collar and lapels is on'the underside thereof and the coat material on the lapels and collar are on the outside of the dress overcoat. When used as a raincoat the collar and lapels composed of waterproof material are on the out side and the dress coat collar and lapels fold so as to be underneath.

Between the outer layers of material 10 S5 and 11 in the body portion of the coat is disposed an intermediate layer of a stiffen mg material 16, which may be canvas, crinoline, or the like,'stitched at its one end, as

at 17, to a piece of soft flexible material 18.

The collar and lapels are also provided with an intermediate layer of a stifl'ening material 19 stitched at 20 to the soft flexible material 18 which serves as a hinge about which the collar and lapels are turned when the coat is reversed.

As clearly illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawing, the stilfening materials 16 and 19 are spaced apart but, as heretofore described,

are stitched to the common flexible strip 18.

This strip 18 affords a continuous line throughout the entire length of the collar and lapels and is made of a material which will readily bend and thus; definitely outlines the line along which the collar and lapels will bend when the coat is reversed. This construction permits the collar and lapels to fold in an even line along the hinge v 18 and allows both collar and lapels to assume a smooth even appearance when folded similar to that obtained in pressingthe collar and lapels of the ordinary coat construction When the 60 into osition. Without this construction, in which the line of fold for the collar and coat is one continuous hinge line, the collar ular and lapels will assume an unsightly appear ance when reversed as neither the collar nor the lapels will tend to fold down smoothly and neatly into the desired position. The use of the continuous hinge line 18 for both collar and lapels results, therefore, in a collar and lapel constructionwhereby the collar and lapels will assume a smooth dress-like appearance Whether the coat is worn in regor reverse manner. Obviously any other form of hinge connection which is highly flexible could be used.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that a coat constructed according to the principles of this invention Will have a much neater appearance than coats not fitted with the continuous hinge line. Moreover, the preferred embodiment of the invention of the coat as herein illustrated and described may 'be subjected to various changes in the detail of arrangement and construction by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as expressed by the appended claims.

I claim: I I 1. A reversible coat comprising a body portion and a collar and lapel portion each provided with a stiffening material, and continuous flexible means interconnecting the stiffening material of said two portions to determine the line of fold of said collar and lapels on said body portion whereby said-collar and lapels will fold into a smooth dresslike position irrespective of which side of the coat is worn on the outside;

2. A coat comprising a body portion and a collar and lapel portion, said portions being made up of tWo outside layers of cloth and an inter-lining of stiffening material,

said inter-linings being separated andconnested by a soft flexible material for forming a predetermined line of fold extending in a continuous line from the lower point of foldin one lapel through the collar to the lower point of fold in the other lapel.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto subscribed my name;
