COMBINATION GARMENT AND HANDBAG Filed May 26, 1958 iNVENTOR NATHAN AUG ATTORNEY Patented F eb. 7, 1939 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 4 Claims.

This invention relates to convertible garments and deals more particularly to garments which may be converted into carrier bags.

The invention contemplates the provision of a 5 garment, particularly of the coat type, such as lightweight sport coats, ralncoats, etc., which is provided with means for converting said garment into a carrier bag. While the invention contemplates other articles of apparel, coats or capes used by golfers, horsemen, the military, etc., are particularly adapted to the invention.

More specifically, the invention contemplates the provision of a garment provided with slide fastener means affixed to the inside thereof and by means of which, by folding the garment in a certain manner, said garment may be converted into a carrier bag for articles such as golf balls, food, toiletries, wearing apparel, etc.

With the above in mind, the invention may be realized in the exemplary forms thereof, as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is an inside view of a garment incorporating features of the invention.

r Fig. 2 is a view of the garment when folded preparatory to closing the slide fastener means. Fig. 3 is a perspective view with one of the slide fastener means in closed condition.

Fig. 4 is a similar view with the garment formed as a bag and adapted for the reception of articles.

Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 1 showing an alternate form of construction.

Fig. 6 is an inside View of a garment such as a cape incorporating still another form of the invention.

Referring now to the drawing in greater detail, the garment may comprisea back l0, front portions H, and may or may not have a skirt portion l2 formed as extensions of the front and back.

As herein contemplated, the inside of the garment is preferably provided with cooperating slide fastener element bearing tapes l3 and [4 at a point adjacent the armholes of the garment and each extending from the center of the back l towards said armholes. Similarly, cooperating tapes l and I6, parallel to the tapes I 3 and I4, may be provided in spaced relation thereto. And finally, cooperating tapes I! and I 8 may be arranged along the side seams of the garment so that all of the tapes here mentioned are positioned to form a rectangle.

To complete the structure, handles such as shown at l9 and 20 may be affixed to the inside of the garment at a mid-point of each of the tapes I! and I8.

The garment may also be provided, if desired, with a yoke 2| which overstands the tapes l3 and I4 so that the fastener elements of said tapes 5 may not rub against and wear a garment such as a sweater, shirt, etc, which may be worn beneath the instant garment.

When the garment is to be folded, it is preferably laid flat with its outer surface upward. The 10 sides II are then folded over as shown in Fig. 2 and then the top portion and the skirt are folded over to provide a substantially rectangular arrangement such as shown in Fig 2. From this condition the folded garment is folded along a line 22 so that the tapes [3 and I4 and the tapes I 5 and 16 are respectively associated whereby the slides of these tapes may be actuated to join said tapes. This condition is shown in Fig. 4. The bag is now formed. and is ready for any articles 20 which may be placed therein. The tapes l1 and I8 may now be joined to close the bag thus formed.

While the foregoing manner of forming the bag is desired, it is not necessary to fold at the same time all of the portions of the garment such as shown in Fig. 2. Those portions adjacent to th tapes l5 and It may first be folded over before the slide for these tapes is actuated and then the remaining garment portions may be folded so the tapes I3 and I4 may be joined. This mode of operation may best be seen from Fig. 3 where the lower portion of the garment has been folded to afford joining of the tapes l5 and I6, the upper portion of the garment being as yet unfolded inwardly.

The specific construction above described may be varied. For instance, instead of the three sets of fastener tapes shown in Fig. 1, two sets may be employed as shown in Fig. 5. Here the tapes 23 and 24 and the tapes 25 and 26 may be respectively joined to form the bag such as shown in Fig 4.

In Fig. 6 another form of the invention has been disclosed. Here, the bag closure means comprises only two cooperating fastener element bearing tapes 2'! and 28, each starting and terminating at the center of the back of the garment which in this instance is shown as a cape. Thus, one end, rather than the top of the formed bag may be opened for the insertion into or the removal from of articles.

While slide fasteners are preferred, various other closure or fastener means such as buttons,

snap fasteners, hooks, etc., may be used in certain instances.

The invention lends itself to many changes, particularly by those skilled in the art. Hence, the prior pertinent art rather than the present specific disclosure should form the basis of interpretation of the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. In a convertible garment, a fastener element bearing tape disposed across the back of the garment from a point at the center of the back to a side edge thereof, a cooperating tape extending from said point to the other side edge of the back, a similar second pair of tapes in spaced parallel relation to the mentioned tapes, another fastener bearing tape disposed along one side edge of the back and extending between the previous mentioned tapes and a cooperating tape similarly disposed along the other side edge of the back, all of said tapes being arranged to form a rectangle circumscribing a portion of the back of the garment, the remaining portions of the garment being foldable over said circumscribed portion, and means carried by one of each pair of said tapes for winding said tapes in pairs to form a carrier bag, the exposed portions of which comprise said circumscribed garment back portion.

2. In a convertible garment, a fastener element bearing tape disposed across the back of the garment from a point at the center of the back to a side edge thereof, a cooperating tape extending from said point to the other side edge of the back, a similar second pair of tapes in spaced parallel relation to the mentioned tapes, a third pair of tapes disposed along the side edges of the back and terminating at the ends of the previous mentioned tapes, all of said tapes being arranged to form a rectangle circumscribing a portion of the back of the garment, the remaining portions of the garment being foldable over said circumscribed portion, and means carried by one of each pair of said tapes for uniting said tapes in pairs to form a carrier bag, the exposed portions of which comprise said circumscribed garment back portion.

3. In a convertible garment, a fastener element bearing tape disposed from a point at the center of the back to a point on the side edge thereof and arranged to form an angle, a cooperating tape extending from said center point to a point on the other side edge of the back and opposite to the previously mentioned side edge point, a similar second pair of tapes arranged with the first mentioned tapes to form a rectangle circumscribing a portion of the back of the garment, the remaining portions of the garment being foldable over said circumscribed portion, and means carried by one of each pair of said tapes for uniting said tapes in pairs to form a carrier bag the exposed portions of which comprises said circumscribed garment back portion.

4. In a convertible garment, a fastener element bearing tape starting and ending at spaced points along the center of the back of the garment and having spaced parallel portions extending to the side edge of said back, said spaced portions being connected by a portion extending along said side edge, a cooperating similar tape oppositely disposed thereto to form a rectangular tape arrangement circumscribing a portion of the back of the garment, the remaining portions of said garment being foldable over said circumscribed portion, and means carried by one of said tapes for uniting said tapes to form a carrier bag, the exposed portions of which comprise said circumscribed garment back portion.
