3Claims.
This invention relates to garments, and is concerned more particularly with a novel combination garment which serves the purposes of an outer shirt and an undergarment of the trunks 5 or shorts type. The new garment is cool and comfortabla'and it permits entire freedom ci body movement. At the same time, only the outer shirt portion is visible when the garment is being worn and the advantages of the new construction are thus obtained without any impairment oi the appearance of the wearer. The garment of the invention may be cut in sizes and styles appropriate for men, women, and children, but for the purpose of explanation, a man's style of garment will be illustrated and described in detail, the diiierence between such a garment and those for women and children being readily apparent. Y
The new garment includes a top which has the form of an outer shirt of ordinary construction and this top vsection is made of woven fabric oi any desired material. either an attached collar or a neckband, and it has the usual sleeves which are preferably of ordinary length and may be provided with any desired style of cuff. The front of the outer shirt section terminates slightly below the waistline, and at the rear the section extends down a substantial distance below the waistline.
3o The trunks or shorts section is attached to the lower end oi the top section and it is formed of knitted material cut to iit the wearer snugly. The trunks section includes iront and rear members secured together along the side edges of the garment and the front member is secured to the lower end of the front part oi' the top section. For this purpose, the iront member of the trunks section preferably overlaps the lower end oi the front part oi the shirt and is attached there- 40 to by spaced lines of stitching lying parallel to and below the waistline. The rear member overlaps the lower end of the back oi the top section by a substantial amount, and the top edge of the rear member of the trimks is free and includes a.` resilient cord or the like so that the rear member provides a drop seat. The central portions oi the lower edges oi the front section are connected together, and preferably, this connection is yielding in a direction through the crotch when the garment is worn. The connection provides leg openings on either side thereof and elastic members, such as cords, are incorporated in the garment around the openings so that the garment fits the legs snugly.
desired, the front member of the tl'lulk Sec- The top is provided with tion may include a ily insert formed to provide a fly opening.
For a better understanding or the invention,
referenceemay be had to the accompanying drawing in which s o Fig. l is a view of the new garment as it appears when worn;
Fig. 2 is a view of the garment in iront elevation with parts broken away:
Fig. 3 is a partial view oi the garment in rear 1o elevation; and
Figs. 4 and 5 are sectional views on the lines 4 4, and 5 5, respectively, of Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawing, the new garment is illustrated as including a top section in the form 15 of an outer shirt, and this section is made of woven fabric of any desired material and quality. Thefiront of the top section includes a pair oi members I0 and II providing the usual iront opening, which is closed by overlapping hems at 20 the edges of the members I0 and II, the outer hem I2 having buttonholes, and the underlying hem having buttons I3. IThe members I0 and 'II extend down to a point slightly below the waistine and at their upper ends, they are cut 25 to form the usual neck opening and are provided with the attached collarv I4 illustrated,.or with a neckband oi the type employed with a detachable collar.
At the rear, the top section includes a back member I5 which extends down a substantial distance below the waistline as shown, and is connected at its upperend to a yoke I6, to which vthe front members III and II are secured in the usual way. The iront members III and II are connected to the lateral edges of the rear member I5 by side seams I1, and sleeves I8 are secured to the front and rear members and to the yoke in the ordinary manner.
The trunks or shorts section is made of knitted material, and it includes a front member I9 which preferably overlaps and is secured to the lower ends oi the shirt sections I0 and II. In order that the front opening of the shirt may extend down to the lower end oi the shirt section, the 45 overlapping portion 20 of the trunks member I9 member and is in two parts, and the trunks section and the members III and II are connected together by spaced rows of stitching 2Ia and l0 2Ib. The stitching 2Ia connects the strip 20 to the remainder of the iront member Il! and also to the members III and II, and the two parts of the strip 20 are secured to the members I0 and .II bythe stitching 2lb.
The trunks section also includes a rear member 22 which extends up to a point slightly below the waistline, and thus overlaps the lower end of the back member I5 of the outer shirt to a substan- 5 tial extent. The rear member 22 is connected to the front member I9 of the trunks and to the- `overlapped portion of the member I5 by rowsof stitching 23 along the sides of the garment, and the top edge of the member 22 is free and is l0 provided with an elastic cord or edging 24, so the rear member 22`may provide: a drop seat.
'I'he front and rear members I9 and 22, respectively, are connected together the connection is resilient. For this purpose, the
two members may be provided with hems made of resilient yarn, such as that commercially known as Lastex, and the hems may be connected together so that they provide a yielding connection.
is preferable to connect the: central portions of the lower ends of the front and rear member by means of a crotch insert which is made of a material extensible in a direction through the crotch. Such an insert may advantageously be made of two or more thicknesses of knitted material having its wales extending transversely and fori" additional resilience, the material may be made of a resilient yarn, such as that mentioned above. 'I'he yielding connection between the front and rear members in the crotch makes the garment comfortable, although fitting snugly, and if unusual strains are imposed upon the connection between the two members by reason of body movements, the upper edge of the drop seat may be drawn down so as to increase the length of the trunks section through the crotch.
'Ine trunkssection of the garment illustrated includes a fly insert made up of a pair of parts 26a and 26h. These parts lie with their adjacent edges overlapping and disconnected, so as to provide a y opening, and at their upper ends, the parts are secured to the front member I9 by the curved line of stitching 21. At their lower ends, the parts 26a and 2Gb are secured to the forward end of the crotch insert. It will be noted that the free edge 28 of the member 26a extends in a generally diagonal direction from a point at one side of the middle line of the garment to the side edge of the crotch insert. This diagonal formation increases the length of the y opening without increasing the length of the ily insert, and the edge 28 is subjected to strain at ally times whenl the garment is worn, so that the opening will not gape. 'I'he fly andcrotcb, inserts are relatively narrow and leg openings are provided on either side thereof. These openings are defined in part by the curved edges 29 and 30 at the lower end of the front and rear members I9 and 22, and the 0 openings are finished with hems and have resilient means, such as elastic cords 3|, incorporated in them, so that the garment will fit the'thighs snugly at the openings.
With the construction described, the new gar- 05 ment takes the place of an ordinary outer shirt and trunks or shorts underwear. All the exposed portions of the garment are the same in appearance as an outer shirt, since the trunks and` their connections to the outer shirt section lie below 70 the waistline, and are thus concealed when the garment is worn. 'I'he trunks, beingmade of s ttedV material, conform snugly to the body,

tom, said insert being and the combination of a crotch connection, extensible in a direction through the crotch when the garment is worn, and the drop seat with the elastic upper edge permits the trunks to yield, so
as not to bind or interfere with the movements 6 of the wearer. As the trunks are made of a knitted material, the movements of the wearer tend to impose strains on the trunks, which might cause the trunks to be detached from the outer shirt section, but in the construction described, l0 the provision of the extra strip 20 and the two l rows of stitching 2Ia and 2lb strengthen the garment at the points where it would otherwise be weak. The stitching also serves to reinforce the garment at the upper end of the drop seat and l5 prevent the drop seat from being torn loose near its upper end.
