  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The system disclosed may provide the benefit of keeping a shirt tucked-in even while the person wearing the shirt is moving. To understand some of the benefits of various embodiments, the following application is disclosed.
  • FIG. 1 shows a shirt 100, which in this case is a dress shirt 100 and lower undergarments 200. Dress shirts 100, and button up shirts may be used for formal attire, as part of a uniform, or in other ways where it is not acceptable for the bottom of the shirt to come un-tucked. The example illustrated in FIG. 1 has four strips of material (120, 124, 128 and 138) attached to the shirt 100 with snaps attached to each strip. In the example of FIG. 1 the lower undergarment 200 has corresponding strips of material (220, 224, 228, and 238) with snaps. In this example, the snaps on the shirt 100 are designed to have at least one snap in each strip of material on the shirt 100 attach to at least on snap on the strips of material on the lower undergarments 200. The snaps in this embodiment are positioned in the front, on the right side, on the left side and in the back of the shirt 100, and also with corresponding snaps in the lower undergarment 200.
  • When a person wears the shirt 100 with the lower undergarment 200 of the example shown in FIG. 1, snaps in the shirt 100 may be attached to the snaps in the lower undergarment 200 so that the shirt cannot easily become un-tucked.
  • The shirt 100 has an interior 110 and an exterior 112, and is designed to be worn with the interior 110 against a person's skin or undergarment, and the exterior 112 exposed to the view of others. In some embodiments the shirt 100 includes a front panel that is one piece of fabric, and in other embodiments the front panel is two panels, with a first front panel 114 and a second front panel 116. In the example illustrated in FIG. 1 and FIG. 3, the first front panel 114 has a first panel top 102, and a first panel bottom 10, and a second panel top 106 and a second panel bottom 108.
  • The back panel 118 may also be made from one piece of fabric, or may be made with two or more pieces of fabric. In the example illustration of FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 the back panel 118 is shown with fitting seams 154. The back panel 118 may be attached to the front panel (or multiple front panels) with a first side seam 142 and a second side seam 144. In some embodiments the side seams are designed to be approximately at the side of a person when they are wearing the shirt 100.
  • In the illustrated embodiment of FIG. 1, FIG. 2, and FIG. 3, the first side seam 142 has a top and a bottom 146 and runs in a vertical direction along the shirt. The second side seam 144 is also illustrated in the example embodiment with a top and a bottom 148 running in a vertical direction. In some embodiments the side seams 142 and 144 are positioned so that when the arms of the person wearing the shirt hang straight down, the arms cover the side seams 142 and 144.
  • A first strip of material 120 may be attached adjacent to the first side seam 142. In some embodiments the first strip of material 120 has one snap, in other embodiments the first strip of material 120 has multiple snaps which are a first vertical row of snaps 122. The example illustrated in FIG. 1 shows a first vertical row of snaps 122 with four snaps that are evenly spaced apart. In some embodiments the first strip of material 120 is attached to the shirt 100 with stitching 150. In other embodiments the first strip of material 120 is attached to the shirt 100 with adhesive or bonded in another manner. The stitching 150 holding the first strip of material 120 to the shirt 100 may overlap the first side seam 142 so that some or all of the stiches 150 fall in the same area as the stitching for the first side seam 142. In other embodiments the stitching 150 holding the first strip of material 120 to the shirt 100 may be near or adjacent to the first side seam 142.
  • A second strip of material 124 may be attached about or near the second side seam 144 in the same manner as discussed above with the first strip of material 120. The second strip of material may also have one snap attached, or may have multiple snaps to form a second vertical row of snaps 126. As illustrated in the example embodiment of FIG. 1, the second vertical row of snaps 126 may have four evenly spaced snaps.
  • In some embodiments the first strip of material 120 and the second strip of material 124 may be positioned at or near the bottoms 146, and 148 of the side seams 142 and 144. Part or all of the first strip of material 120 and the second strip of material 124 may be tucked into the pants, skirt or other lower body outer garment when worn by a user. Alternatively, the user may wear a shirt 100 according to one of the embodiments with part or all of the first strip of material 120 and second strip of material 124 outside of the pants, skirt, or other lower body outer garment. In some embodiments the first and second strips of material 120 and 124, are attached to the interior of the shirt so that the snaps 122 and 126 are not seen if a portion or all of the first strip of material 120 and second strip of material 124 are not tucked in, and the shirt 100 may even be worn untucked without the snaps being visible on the exterior 112 of the shirt 100. In the example embodiment with the snaps on the interior 110 of the shirt 100, stitching 150 may be seen on the exterior 112 of the shirt 100. The illustrations of FIG. 2 and FIG. 3 show stitching for the first strip of material 120 and the second strip of material 124 that can be seen on the exterior of the shirt 100. In this example embodiment the first strip of material 120 and the second strip of material 124 are placed so that the arms or sleeves of the shirt will cover the stitching 150 for the first and second strips of material 120 and 124 when the arms of the user are held straight down and against their sides.
  • The back panel 118 of the shirt 100 may have a third strip of material 128 and a snap attached to the third strip of material 128. In other embodiments two or more snaps may be attached to the third strip of material 128 forming a third vertical row of snaps 130. In the embodiment illustrated in FIG. 1, the third vertical row of snaps 130 has four snaps. In some embodiments more than one strip of material with a row of snaps may be attached to the back panel 118 in multiple positions. In the embodiment illustrated in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 the back panel has one strip of material that is attached to the back panel 118 approximately in the center of the back panel. As with the other strips of material discussed above, the third strip of material 128 may be attached to the shirt 100 with stitching 150, or with bonding or adhesives or other means. In an embodiment where the third strip of material 128 is attached to the interior 110 of the shirt 100, snaps on the third strip of material 128 may be hidden from view even if the shirt 100 is chosen to be worn un-tucked.
  • In some embodiments the front panel may also have a strip of material with one or more snaps. In the example embodiment illustrated in FIG. 1, a fourth strip of material 138 is attached to the front panel of the shirt. The fourth strip of material 138 may have one snap, or multiple snaps that form a fourth vertical row of snaps 140. In the illustrated embodiment of FIG. 1 the fourth vertical row of snaps 140 has four snaps.
  • In some embodiments the first front panel 114 has a placket 132 attached to the exterior 112 of the shirt 100 along an edge of the first front panel 114. The placket may have button holes 134. The second front panel 116 may have buttons 136 along an edge of the second front panel, which may be positioned to correspond with and pass through the button holes 134 in the placket 132 on the first front panel 114.
  • The fourth vertical row of snaps 140 may be placed on the interior 110 of the shirt 100 along the edge of the second front panel 116. In some embodiments the fourth strip of material 138 is placed in the shirt 100 near the bottom of the second front panel 116, and in a manner so that when the shirt is closed (as illustrated in FIG. 3) the fourth strip of material 138 is behind the placket 132, hiding stitching which may be used to hold the fourth strip of material 138 to the shirt 100. In other embodiments the fourth strip of material 138 may be placed further away from the edge of the second front panel 116, or on the first front panel 114.
  • In some embodiments the first, second, third and fourth strips of material 120, 124, 128, and 138, may be placed in a vertical position so that the snaps on each of the strips of materials are approximately in the same vertical position when the shirt is supported by a hanger, or when the shirt is worn by a user. The vertical position may be relative to a waistband that would be worn by the user, or relative to the shoulders of the user. In other embodiments some of the strips of material are at a higher vertical position than other strips of material and the vertical position of the snaps may vary between the strips of material.
  • In some embodiments the strips of material in the shirt can prevent a shirt from becoming un-tucked without attachment to corresponding snaps in a lower garment, as the snaps can add resistance to vertical movement of the shirt 100 when held under a lower garment with a belt or waistband. In other embodiments snaps may be attached to a lower garment to further aid in resisting vertical movement of the shirt 100 which would cause the shirt 100 to become un-tucked.
  • An example lower undergarment 200 is illustrated in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 The lower undergarment 200 may include a waistband 210 designed to go around the waist of the user. In some embodiments, strips of material may be attached to the lower undergarment with one or more snaps that are designed to receive the snaps attached to the shirt 100. In other embodiments one or more snaps may be attached directly to a lower undergarment without a strip of material.
  • In some embodiments the lower undergarment 200 may have a fifth strip of material 220 with at least one snap attached to the lower undergarment in a vertical position. The firth strip of material 220 may have one snap attached, or may have a row of snaps that form a fifth vertical row of snaps 222. The fifth vertical row of snaps 222 is shown in the example of FIG. 1 with four snaps. The fifth strip of material 220 may be placed on the side of the lower undergarment 200 in a position that substantially corresponds to the position of the first strip of material 120 on the shirt 100.
  • The lower undergarment 200 may also have a sixth strip of material 224 with at least one snap attached to the lower undergarment in a vertical position. The sixth strip of material 224 may have one snap attached, or may have a row of snaps that form a sixth vertical row of snaps 226. The sixth vertical row of snaps 226 is shown in the example of FIG. 1 with four snaps. The sixth strip of material 220 may be placed on the side of the lower undergarment 200 in a position that substantially corresponds to the position of the second strip of material 124 on the shirt 100.
  • A seventh strip of material 228, and an eighth strip of material 238 may also be attached to a lower undergarment 200. The seventh strip of material may have one or more snaps that form a seventh vertical row of snaps 230, and the eighth strip of material 238 may have one or more snaps that form an eighth vertical row of snaps 240. The seventh and eighth strips of material 228 and 238 may be attached to the front and back of the lower undergarment 200 in positions that substantially correspond with the placement of the third and fourth strips of material 128 and 138 in the shirt 100.
  • The waistband 210 may have a top 252. In some embodiments the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth strips of material 220, 224, 228, and 238 may be placed in a similar vertical position in relation to the top of the waistband 252. In other embodiments the strips of material attached to the lower undergarment 200 may be at different vertical positions relative to the top of the waistband 252. The example embodiment illustrated in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 show the strips of material attached to the lower undergarment 200 at approximately the top of the waistband 252 and extending down along the lower undergarment 200. In other embodiments the top of the strips of material may be attached further down, such as below the waistband 210 on the lower undergarment 200.
  • The illustration of the example embodiment shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 include dotted lines to show the connection of each vertical row of snaps on the shirt 100 to a corresponding row of snaps on the lower undergarment 200. The first connection 310 is between the first vertical row of snaps 122 and the fourth vertical row of snaps 220, the second connection 312 is between the second vertical row of snaps 126 and the fifth vertical row of snaps 226, the third connection is between the third vertical row of snaps 130 and the seventh vertical row of snaps 230. The fourth connection 316 is between the fourth vertical row of snaps 140 and the eighth vertical row of snaps 240.
  • FIG. 4 shows a kit for use with a set of garments. The kit may include a set of shirt strips 410, a set of lower garment long strips 420 and a set of lower garment short strips 430.
