627mb", si'oner BY w ATTORNEY United States Patent GARMENT Clinton Stoner, Pacific Palisades, Calif., assignor to Alfred Shapiro Inc., New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application June 17, 1953, Serial No. 362,199
3 Claims. 01. 2-119 This invention relates to garments, and more particularly to shirts, blouses, sweaters and similar outer garments which can be worn by either sex, and the present invention relates to an improved novel means for closing or arranging parts at the neck opening in various ways to secure several attractive decorative effects so that a single garment can present the appearance of several different garments by slight changes or adjustments in certain lapel parts or inserts of the garment.
It is an object of the invention to provide a garment in which a substantially V-shaped neck opening is adapted to be closed or partly closed by a pair of triangulated inserts or lapel parts which are so attached in place and arranged that they can be placed in several different relationships to thereby produce different design or color effects, to secure differently-shaped neck open ings and to result in other useful and attractive changes in the appearance of the garment so as to make the same exceedingly useful and create the effect of several different garments.
More particularly, the invention contemplates the provision of a shirt, blouse, sweater, or similar outer garment, provided with a neck opening of substantially V-shape and having a pair oftriangulated lapel inserts or panels secured in said opening, with each of the inserts being provided with free ends and securing means for providing for overlap in various Ways, or for folding of the inserts to secure different and useful attractive effects in the garment at the neck opening.
With these and other objects to be hereinafter set forth in view, I have devised the arrangement of parts to be described and set forth in the claims appended hereto.
In the accompanying drawings, wherein an illustrative embodiment of the invention is disclosed:
Fig. l is a front eievational view of the upper or neck portion of a shirt or similar garment embodying the improvements, and showing one of the ways in which the parts may be arranged in the neck opening;
Fig. 2 is a face view of one of the lapel inserts or panels;
Fig. 3 is a similar view of the second insert;
Fig. 4 is a view of the two inserts placed together in a manner to show one of the ways in which the inserts can be folded to secure a certain effect;
Fig. 5 is a similar view, showing the inserts arranged in flat, overlying relation so that the face of one of the inserts is covered by the other;
Fig. 6 is a front view of the neck portion of the shirt, showing the collar ends lifted to disclose construction, and
Fig. 7 shows the shirt with the panels arranged in one of the ways possible for certain effects.
Referring to the drawings, 1 indicates the body of a shirt, blouse, sweater or other outer garment. The attached collar is indicated at 2, the same being secured to the body of the garment by stitching in the known manner. The front of the shirt is provided with a V- 2,707,786 Patented May 10, 1955 insert 4 is stitched to one of the edges of the neck opening as indicated by the stitching 7, the opposite edge of the insert being left free to thereby provide the free-end portion indicated at 28. An elongated extension 17 is formed on the insert and said extension is secured in place as a part of the garment by the stitching 7 as well as by the stitching indicated at 30 in Fig. 6. Provided in the narrow extension 17 is a slit or button-hole aperture 19 and secured to the outer face of the extension 17 adjacent to the aperture 1% is a button 18. The freeend portion 28 of the insert 4 terminates in a flexible loop 20 which is adapted for engagement with either the button 18 or with a similar button shown at all on the second insert indicated at 5.
To secure desirable effects it is preferable that the inserts 4 and shall have their opposite faces composed of material which can be exposed with either of the faces directed outwardly. By the use of different colors or shades for the opposite faces of the inserts, many attractive effects are obtainable. For example, the face 21 of the insert 4 is indicated as being of white material, while its opposite face 22 is shown as being colored blue. In the panel 5, the outer face 15 is indicated as being red while the inner face 16 is shown as being blue. Other colors than those suggested may, of course, be usedfor difierent effects.
The insert 5 is similar in construction to that shown at 4. Insert 5 has its edge 8 attached to the second edge of the V-shaped opening by the line of stitching designated at 9. The free-end portion of the insert 5 is designated at 13 and the same terminates in a loop 14 adapted to engage with either the button 18 or the button 11, according to the disposition of the insert 5. A slit-like aperture or buttonhole 12 is provided in the insert 5 and the extension is stitched in place in the manner described with respect to insert 4, but at the opposite side of the garment.
From the foregoing, the construction of the garment will be apparent. In Fig. 1 is shown one way in which the lapel inserts 4 and 5 can be arranged in the neck opening to secure a certain effect. In this arrangement, the free-end portion 28 of the insert 4 has been turned inwardly Within the garment, and said end has had its loop 20 thrust through the aperture 19 and the loop 20 now on the outside of the garment has been engaged with the button 18. Similarly, the free-end portion 13 of the lapel insert 5 has been turned inwardly within the garment and its loop 14 has been thrust through the aperture 12 and the loop 14 now outside of the garment has been engaged with the buton 11. This provides a two-colored closure at the neck opening, and in which a half of each insert is exposed, one of said exposed parts being red in color as indicated at 15 and the other white, as indicated at 21.
A second arrangement is shown in Figs. 4 and 7, wherein both of the inserts 4 and 5 have had their respective free-end portions 13 and 23 folded outwardly to expose parts of the blue-colored faces 16 and 22 on the outside of the garment. In this arrangement, loop 14 is engaged with the button 11, while loop is engaged with the button 18. The apertures 12 and 19 are not used in this disposition of the lapel inserts.
In Fig. 5 is shown an arrangement wherein the whitefaced insert 4 has been disposed flatly across and is completely covering the entire red face of the insert 5. In this arrangement the loop 20 is engaged with the button 11 and the aperture 12 is not used. At the same time, the free end 13 of the insert has its loop 14 thrust through the aperture 19 and said loop 14 engaged with the button 18. As an alternative for his arrangement, the red face 15 of insert 5 may be disposed outermost with loop 14 engaging button 18 and with the end of the part 28 thrust through the aperture 312 and loop 20 to engage with the button 11. This latter arrangement is shown in part in Fig. 6 wherein the red face 15' of the insert 5 is arranged outermost and the end 13 is about to be swung upwardly to have its loop 14 engaged with the button 18.
It is possible that numerous other variations of the positions of the inserts may be had by adjustment or folding of the lapel inserts, all as comprehended within the invention and the scope of the claims appended hereto. By the arrangement disclosed, the individual wearer has latitude in the arrangement of the lapel inserts and by the use of various colors and dispositions of the parts the decorative effect can be obtained to suit the individual wearer.
What I claim is:
1. In a garment, a garment body having a substantially V-shaped neck opening, a collar attached to the body of the garment, a pair of substantially V-shaped inserts each having an edge permanently attached to one edge of the V-shaped opening, the inserts being adapted for disposal in either overlapped relation to thereby close the V-shaped neck opening with one insert completely covering and concealing the other insert or adapted to be folded so that each of the folded inserts closes approximately one-half of the V-shaped opening, each insert when so folded presenting a free end on the inside of the garment, the garment having apertures at the base of the collar through which the free ends of the inserts will protrude when so folded, and fastening means on the outside of the garment to which said free ends can be detachably secured.
