Abstract

The present invention comprises a hosiery with an interior pocket for storing items, and a method of forming the same. The hosiery takes the form of a sock having a foot portion and a body portion extending from the foot portion. The body portion has an interior and an exterior. The pocket is separately formed and attached to the interior of the body portion of the sock, with a horizontal opening on the body portion that is accessible from the exterior through an enclosure apparatus.

Description

    FIELD OF INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to hosiery items having built-in storage devices and, more particularly, to hosiery items taking the form of a sock having a body portion with an interior and an exterior, with a pocket in the interior of the body portion, and to a method of forming the same. Additionally, the pocket is accessible from the exterior of the body portion, and may be sealed using an enclosure apparatus. [0001]
  • BACKGROUND OF INVENTION
  • For various reasons, it may be undesirable to carry one's personal effects or other items in a pants pocket or purse. The need to be less conspicuous or provide an alternative pocket has led to the invention of various types of pockets associated with hosiery items, typically in the form of a sock with a pocket. [0002]
  • One form of sock pocket is constructed with a vertical opening. As disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,445,233 and 5,664,263, to Rubin and Reynolds respectively, a pocket is attached to a tubular body portion of a sock, but is accessible by way of a vertical opening. An inherent problem with this design is that the bottom of the pocket is near the bottom of the opening, which may result in the inadvertent loss of the pocket's contents. Additionally, if the sock were an ankle sock, there would not be sufficient space in the cuff to place a vertical opening. As such, there is a need for a pocket with a horizontal opening, where the contents of the pocket rest at a level lower than the opening, and allowing for the placement of an opening within an ankle sock. [0003]
  • Solving the need for a pocket with a horizontal opening has often been accomplished through the use of an external pocket. Such socks were disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,039,197; 5,027,440; 5,625,904; and 6,199,216, issued to Strieby, Morris et al., Kline, and Weatherspoon respectively. As disclosed in these patents, the external pocket is separately formed and attached to the exterior of the tubular body portion. While easily constructed, this form is generally undesirable because of the pocket's visibility. Even when empty, the extra material of the external pocket creates a bulge on the outside of the sock, thereby nullifying any attempts to make the pocket less conspicuous. Additionally, in the case of an ankle sock, an external pocket will not work because of the small size of the sock's body portion. [0004]
  • In an attempt to better conceal the pocket and remove it from the exterior, several inventions have been made incorporating the pocket into the cuff of the sock. U.S. Pat. Nos. 2,814,807; 4,961,235; 5,133,091; 5,651,142; and 5,836,019, issued to Dollar, Willinger, Del Valle Mas, Del Valle Mas, and McCafferty respectively, disclose a pocket in which the fabric of the sock itself is used as the primary component of the pocket. As disclosed in these patents, the cuff of the sock is either folded over or given an additional layer of fabric, thereby creating the pocket. However, the entire cuff is afforded twice the amount of necessary fabric, rendering it thick and cumbersome. [0005]
  • In order to remove the necessity for an additional layer of fabric and better conceal the pocket, a sock was invented with a pocket placed in the interior of the body portion. This sock is disclosed in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,005,494 and 4,038,699, issued to Burn. While the Burn patents solve the need for an interior pocket, the disclosed pocket is costly and difficult to manufacture because both the sock and pocket are formed as one continuous piece of fabric. Additionally, the Burn patents do not provide for an enclosure apparatus, whereby the user may seal the pocket. [0006]
  • Therefore, a need still exists for an interior pocket that is separately formed and attached with the sock, with a horizontal opening accessible from the exterior of the sock through an enclosure apparatus. [0007]
  • SUMMARY OF INVENTION
  • The hosiery in the present invention comprises a sock with an interior pocket. The sock has a foot portion connected with and extending from a body portion. The body portion has an interior, an exterior and an opening cut horizontally through it. The opening has an enclosure apparatus affixed with it. A pocket is affixed with the enclosure apparatus and hangs in the interior of the body portion. The pocket has an interior volume in communication with the opening, whereby when the sock is worn by a wearer, the pocket rests between the sock wearer's leg such that the interior volume is accessible from an exterior of the sock via the opening. Additionally, the enclosure apparatus may be operated to selectively permit access to the interior volume of the pocket from the exterior of the sock. [0008]
  • In another aspect of the present invention, the enclosure apparatus may be selected from a group consisting of a zipper, hook & loop, tie, flap, elastic band, and snap. [0009]
  • In addition, the sock may be constructed of at least one layer of fiber content. Further, the fiber content may be comprised of at least one item selected from a group consisting of a cotton blend, a wool blend or a synthetic fiber blend with weatherproof features. [0010]
