ApplicatiouMarch' 12, 1953, Serial No.'341,916 2 Claims. (Cl. 2-236 This invention relates to a trouser and belt combination cooperating to provide a high degree of comfort to the wearer and a vastly better appearance than have been provided by products of conventional manufacture.
One of the defects of trousers of the prior art results from the relative positions of their lateral and ventral belt loops which are conventionally arranged in a common horizontal plane. Y
When such trousers of the prior art are. worn with a belt,'the fly flap of the trousers,..due to the pull of gravity, tends to move downwardly more than any other part of the waistband, rendering the appearance of the legs of the trousers unpleasant. Indeed, menwith legs which are not straight have had considerable difficulty in wearing conventional trousers in a manner to present a good appearance, because the trouser legs have tended to follow the contour of the wearers': legs, and: consequently, the creases of the trouser legs have assumed an irregular rather than straight line.
Numerous unsuccessful attempts have been made in the past to correct this defect of trou'sers. 1 For example, the fly flap hasbeen releasably connected to the belt buckle by means of a button or the like to provide addi't-ional support. Such a connection between the central part of the ventral portion of trousers with the. buckle of a belt alone'willnot rectify the situation however, for the belt buckle together with' the front part of the trousers will, due to the pull of gravity; slip downwardly and ruin the appearance of the trousers unless the belt is constricted very tightly about the body of the we'arer.
Such constriction of a tightly worn belt will tend to produce a slightly better appearance at: trouser legs, but solely at. the expense of comfort and, perhaps injury to the wearer. ii
Since belts and trousers of the prior art have to be worn excessively tightly about the body if the trousers are to be supported in a presentable manner, many men have resorted to the use of suspenders despite their unsightly appearance and despite the fact that they do not support the trousers uniformly about their upper edges.
The supporting arrangement contemplated by the present invention permits the belt to be worn suificiently loosely about the torso so as to be quite comfortable and at the same time support the trousers so presentably and so uniformly that it becomes unnecessary for the wearer to elevate the central portion of his trousers continually as is so common where conventional trousers and belts are employed.
Generally speaking, in accordance with the present invention the ventral portion of the trousers is maintained in an elevated condition by suspension from a loosely worn belt received through the trouser loops. This eliminates the necessity of tightly constricting the belt about the body of the wearer and imparts a good appearance to the trouser legs, since the ventral portion of the belt' under the force of gravity imposed by its 'ice connection with the front of the trousers assumes a position below a horizontal plane common to the upper edges of the lateral loops and is' supported in such position from the lateral portions of the body of the wearer.
To successfully accomplish the elevation of the front of conventional trousers above the position it would naturally assume in accordance with this invention, in addition to changing the relative height of theyentral loops with respect to the lateral loops, it may be necessary to modify the crotch, and for improved appearance, the ventral portion of the trousers may be cut so as to lie parallel to the belt as worn.
Thus in accordance with the present invention, the rectilinear displacement of the lateralloops from the bottom edges of the trouser legs is maintained as in conventional trousers, while the rectilinear displacement of the ventral loops relative to the bottom edges of the trouser legs is reduced.
As regards the modification of the crotch portion, it is obvious that to pull up the front of the trousers the necessary fabric should come from the crotch. In other words, the crotch material should be sufficient to permit' elevation of the ventral-portion of the trousers without wrinkling.
In the preferred form of the invention, the upper ventral portion of the trousers will be cutso as to lie parallel with the belt in its position of suspension from the lateral portions of the wearer. However, this feature need not be incorporated in trousers which have been manufactured with the conventional straight linewaist band, since insuch cases the ventral belt loops -may be shifted and sewn in positions well below the upper edge of the trousers as described herein.
In the drawings:-
Fig. 1 is'a side elevational view of trousers in accordance with the invention, illustrating the same as worn.
Fig. 2 is a fragmentary front viewof the trousers prior to fastening the belt about the body of the wearer and adjusting the trousers;
Fig; 3' is a view similar to" Fig. 2, illustrating the belt fastened about the body of the wearer and the front of the trousers raised slightly to adjust the same to the position shown in Fig. 1f.
Fig. 4% is a fragmentary view in elevationof the trousers. with: the upper portion thereof partially opened" to show the manner in which the waist band of conven tional trous'ers' has been altered in accordance with the invention. 1 v p I Fig. 5 is a perspective vie wof semi when worn by a-per'son Having le s vvnien-are not strai l'n.
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the trousers of Fig. 5, when worn by the same person, but shown with the front of the trousers raised in accordance with the in vention.
Fig. 7 is a sectional view of a belt buckle and a hook secured to the trousers adapted to cooperate with the buckle, the buckle and hook being shown in dissociated relation.
Fig. 8 is a sectional view of the buckle and hook taken along line 88 of Fig.3 in the direction of the arrows, showing the hook attached to the buckle.
Fig. 9 is fragmentary plan view of the buckle and hook, shown in Fig. 8, with the buckle partially broken away.
Fig. 10 is a perspective view of another form of belt buckle for use with the invention.
Referring to the drawings in detail, particularly to Figs. 1 to 4 thereof, trousers 10 are shown which comprise legs 11, a waist band 12, cuffs 13, belt loops 14 and pockets 15, and which trousers are tailored so that the upper edge or waist band edge 16 is modified in accordance with the present invention.
" as 1 trousers- As illustrated in Fig. 4, the waist band edge 16 extends from the rear center seam 17 in a downwardly direction toward front center edges 18 and 20 at the fiy, as can be readily seen by comparison with the horizontal broken line 21. In effect, the left and right sections of the waist band edge 16 are in inverted V-like relation, with each section inclined downwardly to the horizontal.
When the trousers are worn with a belt 22 having a buckle 24 (Figs. 1 to 3), the center of the front of the waist band edge 16 is considerably below the center of the back of this edge prior to fastening the belt (Fig. 2), as is readily seen by comparing the dotted lines 21 and 23. When the belt is fastened (Figs. 1 and 3) and the waist band is constricted about the waist of the wearer, the tendency of the trousers is to pull the front thereof upwardly to a position between the position of the front of the waist band edge shown in Fig. 2 and the back of the edge (Fig. 3), whereby the legs thereof are adjusted in the manner about to be described.
This result can also be accomplished by means of an elastic waistband or suspenders arranged to elevate the front of the edge 16 in a similar manner.
In Fig. 5, conventional trousers are shown as worn by a person having legs which are not straight. The legs of these trousers do not hang straight but follow the contour of the legs of the wearer, whereby the creases are crooked and out of parallelism and produce an unpleasant appearance, as shown.
in Fig. 6, the lower torso and legs of the same person are shown as clothed with the trousers drawn up, as suggested by the invention. The legs of the trousers by being pulled upwardly, as just described, are caused to hang straight in spaced relation as shown with the creases 25 vertical and parallel to eath other, whereby the trousers have a pleasant and dignified appearance.
The raising of the front edge may be assisted by a hook and buckle arrangement, such as illustrated in Figs. 7 to 9. To accomplish this, a hook 30 is fastened to the trousers adjacent the right front center edge 20 (as viewed in Fig. 9). The waist band edge 16, and the upper face or flange of the belt buckle is formed with an aperture or slot 31 for receiving the hook 30. Thus, upon constricting the belt about the waist of the wearer, the belt tends to assume a horizontal position and in so doing raises the front of the trousers (see Figs. 2 and 3).
It is of course understood that in raising the trouser front in accordance with the invention that the crotch portion of the trousers may be increased so as to permit the fabric of the trouser legs to approach each other and provide the desired parallel alignment of the creases 25. This is diagrammatically illustrated by the broken lines 40 and 41 shown in Figs. and 6.
In Fig. 10, a different form of belt buckle is shown which comprises a frame 35 having a lug 36 at the rear of the upper frame section, provided with an opening 37 for receiving the hook 30.
As various changes may be made in the form, construction, and arrangement of the parts herein, without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention and without sacrificing any of its advantages, it is to be understood that all matters are to be interpreted as illustrative and not in any limiting sense.
What is claimed is:
l. Trousers having a waist band portion, a centrally disposed fly portion, an abdominal covering portion, a crotch and leg portions, lateral and ventral loops carried by said trousers on each side of said fiy portion, said lateral and ventral loops on each side of said fiy portion lying transversely of converging lines which are directed downwardly from the sides of the trousers to the fly across said abdominal covering portion, and supporting means on said fly portion at the point of convergence of said lines, whereby the front portions of the trousers will be maintained in elevated condition on a wearer by means of a belt adapted to be threaded through said loops and engaged with said supporting means.
2. In combination, a pair of trousers and a belt, said trousers having a waist band portion, a centrally disposed fly'portion, an abdominal covering portion, a crotch and leg portions, lateral and ventral loops carried by said trousers on each side of said fiy portion, said lateral and ventral loops on each side of said fly portion lying transversely of converging lines which are directed downwardly from the sides of the trousers to the fiy across said abdominal covering portion, a hook on said fly portion at the point of convergence of said lines, and a belt threaded through said loops and providing a socket receiving said hook, whereby the front portions of said trousers will be maintained in elevated condition on a wearer.
