4 Claims. 1

This invention relates generally to head coverlugs and more particularly to a hat construction having adjustable parts.

It is among the objects of the present invention to provide hat structure which is collapsible. so that in a collapsed condition the same takes a minimum of space. By virtue of the compactness of the device when collapsed, the same may be conveniently carried the wearers purse or pocket. 7 Another object herein lies in the provision of hat construction in which various of the parts maybe adjusted in position with respect to each other so as to provide .a completed hat having a variety of styles.

.Another object herein lies in the provision of hat structure which is light in weight and adjustable so that the same may be comfortable when worn.

A feature of the invention lies in the fact that the parts may be varied in position to accommodate different styles of coiifure worn by the wearer.

Another object herein lies in the provision of structure of the class described which by reason of the shape and integration of the various components thereof, the same may be manufactured Figure 2 is a top elevational view of Figure 1.'

Figure 3 is a side elevational View of Figure 4 as seen from the right side thereof.

Figure 4 is a front elevational view of the device or as seen from the left of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is a side elevational view showing the hat in one arrangement thereof as worn.

Figure 6 is a view corresponding to Figure 5 but showing the parts in a different arrangement.

In accordance with the invention the hat generally indicated by reference character l0 comprises broadly a plurality of flexible or deformable head engaging elements I l. The head engaging elements may include the front band I2, a forward upper band l3, a rearward upper band M and a rear band l5. Each of the bands l2-l5, inclusive, is preferably of a length substantially equal to one half the circumference of the head of the wearer. 'The bands 1245, inclusive, may be of suitable width. The width of the bands lZ-iii determines the relative compactness or width of the hat l0 in a folded condition and also the extent of actual head coverage which is provided bythe hat when it is in its expanded or active condition.

Each of the head engaging elements H at the ends thereof is provided with an orifice and these orifices are penetrated by the connecting elements it and I7.

Superposing each of the stacked ends of the head engaging elements are the decorative elements [8 and i9. Each of the decorative elements includes a plurality of decorative members, the decorative members in the decorative element 1.8 being indicated by the reference characters 2 l, 22 .and 23 and in the decorative element l9 by the decorative members 24, 25 and 26. The members 2i-2fi are preferably composed of the same material as that of which the bands l2-I5 are composed, although where desired they may be composed of relatively rigid material since the members Zl-Z'G do not have to be changed when the hat is formed, from the planar condition thereof in which they are when the hat is in a collapsed condition, as seen in Figures 1 and 2. Thus the decorative members 2 I -23 are pivotally mounted upon and penetrated by the connecting element [6 while the decorative members 24-26 are mounted upon and penetrated by the connecting element H, The decorative elements I8 and 19 are mounted upon the topmost band I2 and are adapted to be disposed outwardly thereof when the hat I B is in the setup condition thereof. The connecting elements l5 and H are substantially identical and include outer heads and 3|, shanks 32 and 33 and inner enlargements 34 and 35. Disposed inwardly of the heads 30 and 3| are outer disc members 36 and 31; disposed on the shanks 32 and 33 inwardly of the enlargements 34 and 35 are the inner disc members 38 and 39. The outer disc members 36 and 31 provide a decorative effect. The inner disc members 38 and 39 tend to prevent the wearers hair from becoming snarled or tangled in or about the shanks 32 and 33. Both the discs 36 and 38 and 31 and 39 distribute the stress produced by the connecting elements It and I! when the parts are being adjusted or Worn so that wear on the ends of the headengaging elements II and on the decorative members ZI-2S may be reduced. Furthermore, this construction permits the use of relatively lighter weight materials for the bands l2-l5 and/or the decorative members 2l-26 resulting in greater comfort when the hat is worn and compactness when it is in a collapsed condition.

The hat in its expanded condition may rest upon the head of the wearer by the action of gravity, and may frictionally engage the head of the wearer. It may also be maintained in place by an elastic retainer band 20 which extends from the enlargement 34 to the enlargement 35. In use the band 20 may be engaged about the lower rear portion of the head of the wearer.

In use the device may be carried with the parts shown in the positions shown in Figures 1 and 2 and when it is desired to erect the hat any three of the bands l2, I3, I4 and [5 are rotated at the ends thereof about the shanks 32 and 33. Since the bands I 2-15 inclusive are the flexible or deformable head engaging elements described above, the last mentioned rotation of the ends thereof causes the shanks 32 and 33 to change their position automatically to permit said rotation. Further, the members 2|, 22 and 23, and the members 26, 25 and 26 are rotated about their respective shanks to produce a rosette effect in the decorative elements I 8 and IS. The hat is then placed upon the head of the wearer and the elastic band 23 may be placed about the rear base of the skull to produce the appearances shown in Figures 5 or 6. Obviously where de sired the bands may be spread with respect to each other with a greater or lesser degree to provide different appearances or to accommodate for comfort and coiffure variations.

I wish it to be understood that I do not desire to be limited to the exact details of construction shown and described for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.

I claim:

1. A hat construction comprising: a plurality of substantially straight head engaging elements each being in the form of an independent fiat elongated deformable band and having opposed orifices in the ends thereof; said bands being arranged in stacked relation; and a pair of connecting elements, each connecting element penetrating one of the orifices on an end of each of the bands; whereby said bands may be moved with respect to each other by rotating the same about said connecting elements, said connecting elements automatically changing position to assist said rotation and to erect the hat structure.

2. A hat structure comprising: a plurality of deformable head engaging elements of substan tially straight elongated shape having first and second ends; first means pivotally interconnecting said first ends, and second means pivotally interconnecting the second ends, of all of said elements; and an elastic band extending between orifices in the ends thereof; said bands being arranged in stacked relation; a pair of connecting elements, each connecting element penetrating one of the orifices on an end of each of the bands; whereby said bands may be moved with respect to each other by rotating the same about said connecting elements, said connecting elements automatically changing position to assist said rotation and to erect the hat structure; and a pair of decorative elements, mounted upon said connecting elements, of separate straps.

4. A hat structure comprising: a plurality of deformable head engaging elements of substantially straight elongated shape having first and second ends; first means pivotally interconnecting said first ends, and second means pivotally interconnecting the second ends of all of said elements; an elastic band extending between said first and second means; said head engaging "elements being spreadable by rotating the same about said first and second means, said means automatically shifting in position to allow said rotation and to form a cage-like hat crown formation, and said elastic band when the hat is erected being positionable at the base of the head of the wearer to maintain the hat in wearing position; and a pair of decorative elements mounted upon said pivotally interconnecting means, comprising independent rotatable straps.

HETTYE S. LAZARUS.
