Description

`Fuly 29, 1947. w. T. PREVIDI GARMENT POCKET l Filed Nov. 14,- 1945 INVENTOR WILLIHM TIPREVIDI ATTORNEY ?atented July 29, i947 STATES GARMENT POCKET William T. Previdi, Allendale, N. J.
Application November 14, 1945, Serial No. 628,538
1 Claim. i
This invention relates to clothing, and more particularly to clothing pockets and pocket flaps or laps,
Pocket laps or flaps and more specifically patch pocket flaps which protrude more than other flaps have a tendency to wrinkle and not to lie flat against the pocket. In addition, most aps stand away from the material of the garment so much that their edges and corners become quickly Worn and unsightly.
Therefore, it is an object of this invention to form a pocket flap which will lie ilat and close to the pocket.
Another object is to form a pocket flap whose upper edge and corners will rest only slightly above the body of the garment.
A further object is to form a pocket flap which will be neat and sightly and able to retain its shape and position.
Another object is to form a pocket flap construction Which will enable the inner portion of the flap, and the garment behind it to bear the stresses that occur in use.
Still another object is to form a flap which can be easily and quickly attached to a garment.
These and other objects are accomplished by forming a pocket flap of an outer material and a lining material, and securing the lining material to the body of the garment independently of and nearer the pocket than the outer material.
For further comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:
Fig. 1 is a perspective View of a pocket and flap containing the invention.
Fig. 2 is a section along the line 2-2 of Fig. l.
Fig, 3 is a fragmentary view partly in section of the flap of the pocket.
Fig. 4 is a rear view of the stitching securing the pocket and flap to the garment body.
In the drawings and in the specification in which the same numbers represent similar elements a patch pocket d is formed of a pocket element 5, body material 6 and a flap or lap 1. The pocket element is held in position adjacent l the body of the garment by stitches 8 which eX- tendv about the side and bottom edges 9 and ID, respectively.
The fiap or lap 1 is formed of an outer element l l and an inner or lining element l2. The lining element is held by stitches I3 across its upper part, to the body of the garment and by stitches ifi' to the outer element near its curved sides i5. The outer element ll is secured to the body of the garment by stitches I6 parallel to stitches i3 and further removed from the pocket. Thus at its upper edge l l the lap consists only of the outer material and its upper edge and corners are some* what raised above the body of the garment. Nearer the pocket, the surface of the lap is additionally raised by the lining element, and the part of the lap over the pocket is further raised by the pocket element,
A gradual rise in the elevation of the lap is thus obtained so that the upper edge ci the lap and its corners are less exposed and less likely to suffer damage and undue wear.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modications coming within the scope of the invention as defined in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:
In a garment, a pocket and a ilap therefor, the pocket being stitched to the garment, and the flap comprising an outer material and a lining both stitched to the garment body above the pocket, the lining being stitched nearer to the pocket than the outer material, the outer materal having an inside hem extending over the stitching of said lining, and the lower line of stitching `being capable of transferring stress from the ap to the portion of the garment behind the flap, so that wear due to the stresses will be hidden from View.
