ou AND METHOD oF MAKING THE SAIE original Filed Jan. 21, 1927 2 sheets-sheet 2 Patented July 1, 1930 UNITED STATE'SPATENT OFFICE JOHN c. SUTTON, or' ROOKFORD, ILLINOIS, AssIONon To SUTTON SHOPS, TNO., or.
nocKrORD, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION or ILLINOIS CAP AND METHOD GF MAKING THE SAME Application filed January 21, 1927, Serial No. 182,421. Renewed November 20, 1929.
This invention relates to caps of the kind the provision of a cap of improved con-.
struction and a novel `method of making the same.
The cap provided in `accordance with my invention is more attractive in appearance than anyof this type heretofore made and is, furthermore, relatively inexpensive, the manufacturing `cest having been `reduced positively to a minimum as the result of the improved method which I have evolved for making the same.
The cap with which the present invention is concerned is characterized by a visor, headband, and spider top or crown of one or moreV strap members, built up of pieces of celluloid or other thin, normally resilient sheet material cut to shape and having their edge portions bound with a pliable binding material, the parts being'attached to` one another by sewing through the sheet material and binding material of the joining parts. The resulting article has a distinctly Vornamental appearance as a result of the contrast of the transparent or colored Celluloid with the opaque binding material. My improved method of manufacturing this article greatly reduces labor cost and permits of increased production and con.`
sists in sewingbindings on the visor and on the strap members of the crown, and then, in one operation, fastening the visor to the headband in the sewing of the binding onto the loweredge portion of the headband, and fastening the strap members to the head band in the sewing Vof the binding onto the upper edgerportion of the headband. A further feature in regard to the fastening of the Vstrap members ofthe Ycrown is .to provide a'fold of the binding material on the band wherein the raw oruniinished ends of-the strapv members ark-J fastenedto the band by sewing through the binding material and sheet material of the two parts. As aresult of this construction the raw ends are concealed and the cap presents `a more finished and workmanlike appeartherethrough;
thatthe skeleton cap comprises a visor genance. ln a similar manner a sweat band is fastened to the headband by inserting the edge thereof within the fold of the binding material on the lower edge portion of theheadband, the sweat band being thereby united with the headband and visor in the same operation when the binding material is sewed onto the headband.
rlhe invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings whereines Figure 1 is a perspective view of` a skeleton cap made in accordance with my invention; A Y Y Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal section Fig. 3 is a more or less diagrammatic view showing in plan the arrangement of the visor, band and crown strap membe 's during the operation of joining the parts together according to my improved method;
Fig. Li is an enlarged sectional detail taken on the line t-i of Fig. 3 illustrating the finished connection between the band and one of the strap members of the crown; and
Fig. 5 is an enlarged section detail taken on the line of Fig. showing how the two pieces of binding material are folded over the edges of the headband to permit the insertion of the sweat band at one edge of the headband and the insertion of the ends of the strap members at the otheredge, and showing further how the visor is guided for proper attachment to the band.
The same reference numerals are applied to corresponding parts throughout the views. v
Referring iirst to YFigsl and 2 for an understanding of the kind of cap with which the present invention is concerned and also for aV descriptionl of certain improvements in structural details provided in accordance withthe present invention, it will be seen the strip 15 in the crotch 31 thereof. The other edge of the strip is received in the lower turn 32 of the guide part 30. The part 29 has the edge portions of the two arms thereof bent inwardly, as indicated at 33, whereby to receive the folded strip of binding material 16. The guide part 30 on the other hand is suitably bent to receive the strip of binding material 17 folded two ways to anapproximately S-shaped cross-section, as will readily appear in Fig. 5. The one i edge of the celluloid strip 15 is thus guided `for reception in the fold of the binding 16 and, as most clearly appears in Fig. 5, the
,. edge of the sweat band 23 is `likewise inserted in the fold of the binding material. The other edge of the strip 15 is received in one fold of the binding 17 the other fold being arranged to receive the end of the strapmember, as indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. '5. In practice the operator starts sewing the two bindings onto the edges of the headband strip 15 and enters the end of one of the strap members 7 within the fold 24 so as to attach the strap member to the headband by the stitching 19 which, of course, serves primarily to fasten the binding -17 to the headband. lVhen the second strap'end is about to be fastened in this manner the one end of the visor is brought into position,
as shown in Fig. 3, and a few stitches suffice to attach the end thereof to the headband, the stitching going through thebindings and sheet material of both the visor and headband in a similar manner as in the connection of the strap end therewith. A guide block 3a is provided on the under side of the plate 28 to bear against the inner edge of the visor and guide the same as it is fed toward a the needle 25 as the sewing proceeds. In
actual practice, it is only necessary to comy mence the sewing of the visor onto the band and after that the visor is guided into position without any further attention, the operator being concerned only with the matter of inserting the strap ends at regular intervals into the fold of the binding 17 so rf ed as to have all of the parts assembled together in their proper relationship. An operator soon becomes expert in the handling of the cap parts and when provided with a machinecapablerof stitching at a high speed will produce as many as 800 caps in an average day of eight hours. These figures are y given merely to indicate the possibilities for volume production when the method as herein outlined is followed. When the elastic 8,
or any other means, is provided to complete the headband the cap is ready for use. It'
has been found that far greater uniformity in the characteristics of the productis only one ofthe desirable results obtained in the practice of my improved method. Caps produced by other methods have been found to lack as neat, trim and workmanlike an appearance, especially in thejoining of the visor to the headband, the fastening of the two parts in any other way having been found to result inthe Celluloid of the band or visor being kinked or otherwise distorted.
It is believed the foregoing description conveys a suiiiciently clear understanding of my invention that anyone skilled in the art to which the same relates will readily appreciate all of its advantageous features and will be easily enabled to practice the same.
Vvisor and band as well as throughthe sweat band, and means for holding the crown in assembled relation with the visor-and headband. y
Q. The method of making a cap comprising a visor, a headband, and a crownstrap wherein the visor, headband and 'strap members comprise pieces of normali resilient sheet material cut to shape an provided with binding material on the marginaledge portions thereof whereby the parts named may be united Vby fastening means passing through the sheet material and binding material of the joining parts, the said method consisting in sewing binding material on the marginal edges of the sheet material of the visor, and likewise sewing binding material on the marginal edges of the sheet material of the strap member, and finally folding two pieces of binding material over the j g.
two `marginal edges of the sheet material of the band and sewing the same thereto, while at the same time sewing'the visor to one edge of the band by sewing through the binding material `and sheet material of both the visor and band, and similarly uniting the strap member with the otheredge of the band by sewing through the binding material andsheet materialV of both the strap memberand band. l
3. The method as set forth in claim 2 which consists further in inserting the edge of` a sweat band within the fold of the binding on the lower edge portion of the head band whereby both the sweat band and visor' are united with the headband inthe same sewing operation by stitching through the sweat band and through the sheet material and binding material of the visor and headband.
