NECKTIE 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Filed May 14, 1954 ATTUE VEVJ This invention relates to four-in-thand neckties; or cravats, and more particularly to this type of necktie having a preformed knot. a

It is the principal object of thisinvention to provide a necktie of the preformed knot type which will overcome the difficulty in accomplishinga well-tied knot having a. neat over-all eifect, because of the complicated andtnecessary twisting, pulling double-knotting, misjudgment of proper distance for drop panels and misjudgment of the proper setting of design patterns to fit both the knotland drop panel to the best visual advantage.

it is a further object of this-invention to provide a necktie of the preformed knot type which is easy to install under the shirt collar and which will remain neat ly in place as long as-the wearer so desires, which is always knotted and ready for-wear-and which always has.

the so-called dimple drape, directly under the center of the knot at the top of the drop panel.

It is still a further object of this invention'toprovide a preformed knot for'the four-in-hand type necktie which will satisfy the great majority of wearers and which will' fit most shirt collars, with the knotform assembly-being variable so that it can be. either made smaller or larger to fit wide spread or narrowspreadshirt collar openings.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide a necktie of the preformed knot type having-only a'single' drop panel, thus resulting in a saving of materiahand' wherein the drop panel can be varied as to shape. and width in accordance with the current fashions and-style trends.

Another and still furtherobject of thisi invention is to provide a four-in-hand necktie of the preformed knot typein which one fabric may be'used for the knot and a totally different fabric design for the'singledrop panel, to" thereby permit unlimited combination'of style effects, and;

permits of perfect, predetermined 'COIIUOlr'Of designrlocation, both on the knot form anddrop panel.

A still further object of this invention is to zprovideaanecktie of the preformed knottype in Whichdifferentlengths of drop panel may be providedto properly: fit short, medium and tall men, which is-v not possibleivvith the conventional type four-in-hand ties,-. the. length -of which is always the same forall-tmen; regardless ofrheigh-t;

Still another object of this invention isto provide-a necktie of the preformed knot type inwhich.the ma-- terials from which the necktie is to be made arelli-mited only-to those materials having drapingqualities, as,con-- trasted with the conventional type four-in-h'andties which,

are limited to such fabrics and materials that lend themselves'to flexibility, necessary strength, fabric setting and consequent resilient qualities.

Other objects of this invention include the" provision of the necktie of the prefbrmedknot type' wh'ich can be worn indefinitely due to the lack-of-pulling,- twisting andfrictional Wear attendant with the-use of the conventional necktie, and which staysscleaner: longer for the same-rem sons, which permits more-comfort thamthe-conventionali four-in-handtype .oftnecktie since there 'is:onl y-a slight nited States Patenf G F elastic band under. the shirt collar as compared to the wider double-fold fabric of the conventional tie, and which will permit greater ease in handling, greater comfort, maximum styling combinations, neatappearance and longer wear, thus representing an important inherent value to the necktie.

Other objects and advantages: will-become apparent from a consideration of thefollowi-ngdetailed description, forming, the specification, and'taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawingsgin which:

Figure 11 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 11--11 of Figure 10;

vFigure 12 is atransverse cross-sectional view taken on line l2'12"ofFigure11; and

Figure 13 is atop plan view of a neck'oand which is to be placed about the, collar of the shirt and hold the;

necktiein place on the shirt.

With continued reference to the drawings, there is shown in Figure l a conventional shirt 10 provided with theiusualcollar 12 and to which the necktie, generally indicated atl4; is securedby the neckband 16 of elastic material so that thepreformed knot, generally indicated a618, will be disposed inthe opening; between the Wings of'the collar 12 with the dimple drape of the drop panel 22." being disposed immediately below the preformed knot 18'di'rectly under the, knot at the center th'ereofwithtthe drop panel ZZdependi-ng from the knot.

With particular reference to Figures 2,.,3, and 4, there is'shown'in Figure 2' a blank of material 24, which-may be leatherette or other suitable relatively thin, flexible materialof comparatively little inherent stiffness, and which comprises a central back panel 26 and. a pair of side panels 28and 30iextending, from opposite converging edges of the back panel'defined'alongthelines of a fold.

transversely extending top edge 40 at the upper endof. the drop panel 22 are sewn on the rear faceof the back panel 26 and centrally thereof so as to form akeystone 42: Since--thesideedges '3'6 and '38" are sewn to the lower centralportion-of-the-rear face of the back panel 26in Patented Feb. 14, 1956:-

such manner as to provide a narrower width than the normal width of the drop panel 22, there will be an excess of material between the side edges 36 and 38. This excess of material will be folded longitudinally and centrally thereof and sewn together by stitches 44 to provide a raised effect on the panel 26 and which will result in the dimple drape 20 extending immediately below the lower edge 46 of the back panel 26. i

As shown in Figure 4, the side panels 28 and 30 are then folded toward each other along the lines of fold 32 and 34 respectively so that their outer converging edges 48 and 50 are in slightly overlapping position and secured together by suitable stitching to define an inner knot form, generally indicated at 52, which is in the form of a hollow shell having inclined sides, with the back panel 26 being spaced from the juncture of the secured together outer edges 48 and 56 of the respective side panels 28 and 3t).

With respect to the inner knot pad form, generally indicated at 54 and as shown in Figures and 6, it will be seen that a blank of material 56 has been provided, the blank preferably being of a relatively stiff, yet bendable, material such as leather and of somewhat heavier guage or thickness than the thickness of the blank of the material 24. The blank of material 56 includes a central panel 58 and a pair of laterally extending, generally triangular wing panels 60 and 62 along opposite inclined edges 64 and 66, which are in converging relation, with the wings 60 and 62 extending from the arcuate top edge 68 of the central panel 53 to a location intermediate the ends of the side edges 64 and 66 respectively. The lower or bottom edge of the central panel 58 has a notch 70 (Figure 5) therein of rather flat V-shape.

The Wings 61) and 62 are adapted to be folded along lines of fold 72 and 74 respectively which are coincident with the respective side edges 62 and 64 so that the wings are in spaced relation to the rear face of the central panel 58. A metal bar 76 of relatively thin guage and readily deformable due to its relative thinness, extends between the wings 60 and 62 as they are folded toward each other about the lines of fold 72 and '74 so as to extend across the space between the outer edges 78 and 80 at the upper corners thereof with the outer edges being in spaced parallel relation, as shown in Figure 6.

The inner knot pad form 54, thus being completed, is adapted for insertion in the open top of the outer knot form 52 with the front face of the central panel 58 underlies the inner face of the front of the outer knot form defined by the secured together side panels 28 and 3t and a pair of rivets pass through aligned openings in the Wings 6%] and 62 of the inner knot pad form 54 and openings or holes adjacent the upper edge of the side panels 28 and 30 and through the metal bar 76 adjacent opposite ends thereof so as to secure the outer knot form together with the inner knot pad form, as shown in Figures 7 and 8. In Figure 12, it will be clearly seen that the rivets 82 pass through the wings 60 and 62 and the side panels 28 and 30 of the outer knot form with the metal bar 76 disposed therebetween and the rivets 82 also passing through the metal bar adjacent opposite ends thereof.

In Figure 9, there is shown a blank of material, generally indicated as 84, which may be of suitable textile material and limited only as to the type of textile materials which have draping qualities. The blank of material 84 is designed to form a cover, generally indicated at 86, for the secured together inner knot pad form and outer knot form 54 and 52 respectively.

The blank of material 84 is generally semi-oval in shape with the simulated arcuate peripheral portion thereof consisting of a series of connected, short straight lines extending from an end strip panel 88 to and oppositely disposed, somewhat similar end strip panel 90. A line of fold 92 extends about the simulated arcuate portion of the blank of material in spaced parallel relation inwardly thereof and also extends across the end strip panel 90 so that the material between the line of fold 92 and the outer edge of the simulated arcuate portion of the blank 84 will define a hem which may be folded under and sewn. About the upper end of the simulated arcuate portion remote from the end strip panels 38 and 90, there is provided a pair of triangular areas a and b and in which the base of the triangle of the areas is coincident with the line of fold 92, and the sides b of the triangular area b may be sewn together after the area has been folded inwardly along the line of fold b to thereby form a dart.

Similarly, the triangular area a will have its opposite sides defined by the fold lines a sewn together after the fold line a" has been folded downwardly so as to provide another dart. Spaced from the respective triangular areas a and b are another pair of triangular areas 0 and d disposed to the sides of the areas a and 1) toward the end strip panels 88 and 90, respectively. These triangular areas c and d are also sewn in such manner as to form darts, with the same procedure being followed as in connection with the areas rz and [2. Thus, four darts are provided in the blank of material 34 which will permit proper line shaping for the top of the Wrap-around cover 86 when applied to the knot form, especially along the curved line at the top back edge of the knot form defined by the outer knot form 52 and the inner knot pad form 54.

Hem panels 94 and 96 are provided in the blank of material 84 at an indented location between the end strip panels 88 and 9t) and in side by side relation. The hem panels 94 and 96 are defined by short lines of cut 97, 93 and 99 extending inwardly from the periphery of the blank of material 84 at the location indicated. The hem panels 94 and 96 are adapted to be folded under and secured by an anchor stitch, which is located at the front center adjacent the bottom of the outer face of the back panel 26 of the outer knot form 52.

A pair of panels 100 and 161 defined by the line of fold 92 which extends across the end strip panels 88 and 90 and the first length of short straight section in a direction away therefrom towards the top of the simulated arcuate portion of the blank, and fold lines 102 and 106 in the case of the panel 100 and similar fold lines 166 and 108m the case of the panel 101. The two panels 160 and 101 are sewn together and disposed at the center of the back panel 26 of the outer knot form 52 so that the panels 100 and 101 overlie the sides and rear of the knot portion of the tie While the front central panel 110 defined between the fold lines 102 and 1426 and fold lines 112 and 114 across the top thereof with the lower end defined by the fold lines 116 and 118 which also constitute the lines of fold about which the hem panels 94 and 96 are folded under, will extend across the outer face of the sewn together side panels 28 and 36 of the outer knot form 52 as the blank of material 84 is transformed into a cover 86 for the knot shell defined by the respective outer and inner knot forms 52 and 54.

A top panel 120 is defined in the blank of material 84- between the fold lines 112 and 114 and the portion of the fold line 92 extending in the simulated arc portion from the juncture of the fold line 102 with the fold line 112 to the juncture of the fold line 106 with the fold line 114. It is in this top panel that the four darts a, b, c, and d are taken. Thus, when the blank of material 84 is applied as the cover 86 about the knot shell, the top panel 120 will extend across the open top of the knot shell in closing relation thereto.

A pair of eye screws 122 and 124 extend through the cover 86, which results from the application of the blank of material 84 about the tie form shell in the manner hereinbefore deschribed, and through the outer and inner knot forms 52 and 54 adjacent the opposite front upper corners thereof so that the eye portion of each of the bolts extends outwardly therefrom while the threaded shank portion extends through suitably aligned apertures in the cover, inner and outer knot forms, and each of the eye screws 122 and 124 are secured by nuts 126 and 128. This defines two anchorings for the wrap-around cover 86 to prevent slipping of the textile material from which the cover is made about the knot shell form.

With the cover 86 thus encircling the tie form and anchored thereto by the eye screws 122 and 124, the top panel 120 is folded back along the lines of fold 112 and 114 to be in closing relation with the open top of the knot form, and the panels 100 and 101 which have been sewn together by stitching 103 will be disposed along the back panel 26 which defines the back of the knot form.

It will be apparent that in forming the knot form, especially in connection with the insertion of the inner knot pad form 54 in the outer form 52, that the metal bar 76 will be deformed into a slight are so that the wings 60 and 62 of the inner knot pad form will be in underlying relation and in contact with the rear of the outer knot form defined by the back panel 26.

The neck band 16 comprises a length of elastic material of relatively narrow width, the opposite ends of which are provided with hooks 130 and 132 which are detachably interengageable with the eye portions of the eye screws 122 and 124 respectively so that the necktie 14 may be secured under the collar 12 of the shirt with the knot 18 disposed in the space between the wings of the collar 12. The neck band 16 may be provided in varying lengths conforming to the normal shirt collar sizes so that for a particular shirt collar size, a specific length of neckband 16 will be employed with the necktie 14.

It will be noted that joined side panels 28 and 30, as well as the adjoining panel 58 of the respective outer and inner tie forms 52 and 54 extend at an angle to the panels 26 and 58, and which when secured together define the front of the knot 18 are of somewhat greater heighth than the rear portion of the knot form defined by the back panel 26 and the underlying wing panels 62 and 60 secured together by means of the rivets 82 passing therethrough and through the metal bar 76 disposed therebetween. Thus, as clearly shown in Figure 11, the knot 18 will be disposed in the opening between the wings of the collar 12 at a planned angle thereto and the dimple drape 20 disposed just below the knot 18 and in center of the drop panel 22. Also, due to the disposition of the eye screws 122 and 124 at the upper corners of the front of the knot 18, the resilience of the neck band 16 secured to the respective eye screws will tend to maintain the knot 18 at the planned angle with respect to the front of the shirt so that an attractive appearance will automatically be maintained at all times while the necktie is being worn.

Also, it will be apparent that the material from which the cover 86 is made may be of a different design and pattern, as well as being of a difierent fabric or material than that of the drop panel 22 thus providing innumerable variations in design.
