May 29, 9 G. B. RANIERI SHIRT CONSTRUCTION INVENTOR 6. 0/9 fifianie/"l BY 4 ,44, {war Filed June 4, 1954 ATTORNEY United States Patent SHIRT CONSTRUCTION George B. Ranieri, New York, N. Y., assignor to Piedmont Shirt Company, New York, N. Y., a corporation of South Carolina Application June 4, 1954, Serial No. 434,420

1 Claim. (Cl. 2119) This invention relates to a shirt construction and more particularly to one having shirt front. sections which may be selectively manipulated to present a variety of color fronts and arrangements.

An object of this invention is to provide an improved shirt construction having a pair of front sections of differ ent color, such sections being adapted to be selectively arranged in overlapping relation or in adjacent relation to obtain alternative effects.

A further object of this invention is to provide a shirt construction of the character described in which the front sections are cut to present a tunic type front.

Another object of this invention is to provide an improved shirt construction having a pair of front sections which may be quickly manipulated to change from one arrangement thereof to another arrangement.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide an improved shirt construction having a pair of front sections which may be arranged in a formalized style, yet may be quickly converted to a more informal appearance of the sports type.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

In the drawing- Fig. 1 is a front view of a shirt construction embodying the invention, showing one arrangement of portions thereof;

Fig. 2 is similar view showing another arrangement of said shirt portions; and

Fig. 3 is also similar view showing a further arrangement of said shirt portions.

Referring in detail to the drawing designates a shirt embodying the invention. The same comprises a one piece front panel 11 seamed to a back panel 12 and a yoke 13. Set in sleeves 14 are seamed to the front and back panels and the yoke while a collar 15 is seamed to the yoke 13 at 16.

The front panel 11 is cut to provide a centrally located opening at the upper end thereof, such opening being defined by a bottom edge 17 and diverging side edges 18, 19 extending to the yoke 13. A pair of front sections 20, 21 of similar outline but of different color are located in said panel opening.

Front section has edges complementary to edges 17, 18 and 19 of the front panel opening and a pair of laterally spaced, wing projections 22, 23 at the upper end thereof. The right hand edge 24 of section 20 is seamed to edge 19, the top edge 25 of wing 23 is seamed to the right hand side of yoke 13 and the inner edge 26 of wing 23 is seamed to the bottom edge of collar 15. The bottom edge 27 of section 20 is seamed along edge 17 to the midpoint 28 thereof, thereby leaving an unsecured, free flap portion 29 on the left hand portion of said section. Buttons 30, 31, 32, 33 are located on the outer surface of section 20 along edges 25, 24 and 27, all on the right hand side of said section while button hole openings 34, 35, 36 and 37 are disposed in 2,747,194 Patented May 29, 1956 locations complementary to said buttons, on the left hand side of said section.

Front section 21 is entirely similar in outline to section 20 and is secured in the front panel opening in a manner similar to that of section 20 except that the seams are on the left hand side of said opening, the collar 15 and yoke 13, thereby leaving an unsecured, free flap portion 40 on the right hand portion of said section 21. The reference numerals relating to the edges of section 21 are similar to the complementary numerals on section 20 except that they are primed. The buttons and buttonholes on section 21 are similarly numbered.

As shown in Fig. l, the shirt 10 may be worn with front section 20 completely overlying and concealing section 21, the buttonholes 34, 35, 36, 37 receiving buttons 3t), 31, 32', 33 on the front section 21 and the wing 23 of said section 21 being held in place by a button on the underside of section 20 opposite button 31.

The wings 22, 23 extend upwardly to the opposite sides of the yoke 13 with the inner portions of the wings disposed under overlying collar portions 15a. The effect thus obtained is that of a military tunic front, accentuated by the symmetrically disposed buttons. The color of front section 20 is in harmony with that of the front panel 11.

It is apparent that the front sections 20, 21 may be quickly reversed so that section 21 is exposed and conceals section 20 which now underlies section 21, the sections being of different colors, thereby obtaining an alternative color effect.

This is readily accomplished by unbuttoning the flap portion 29 of section 20 and wing 23' of section 21; pulling flap 40 of section 21 outwardly to bring section 21 in overlying relation to section 20 and engaging the buttonholes on section 21 with the buttons on section 20 and holding wing 22 of section 20 in place by means of button on the underside of section 21.

The flaps 29, 40 may be further manipulated to obtain other effects and arrangements. Thus, as shown in Fig. 3 a two tone effect may be obtained by leaving one of the front sections filling the front opening in the front panel 11, the other, overlying section having its free flap rolled back to expose the underside thereof, the rolled back portion being held in place by interengaging the buttons and buttonholes on the same section. Thus, there will be exposed half sections of different colors in side by side relation. Obviously, the arrangement of half sections may be reversed by making the former underlying section uppermost with a rolled back flap portion, and the former exposed section in an underlying position.

In another arrangement of the sections, as shown in Fig. 2, each of the sections 20, 21 may have their respective flap portions 29, 4t) rolled back and buttoned in place. This produces a more informal, sportslike efiect with the front sections in side by side relation allowing for a vertical separation of the sections. Here, there is again shown a two tone effect inasmuch as the sections are of different color. Alternatively, the flaps 29, 40 may be turned inwardly into contact with the undersurface of the sections 20, 21 and held in place by buttons not shown.

It will be apparent that the shirtltl provides for a variety of frontal arrangements, which may be quickly interchanged, and in any given arrangement does not readily reveal the interchangeable features thereof.

It will thus be seen that there has been provided a novel garment construction in which the several objects of the invention have been achieved and which is well adapted for practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above described invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiment set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus disclosed my invention, I claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent:

A shirt comprising a front panel, a back panel seamed thereto, a yoke seamed to said panels and a collar seamed to said yoke and front panel, said front panel being formed With a centrally located opening extending upwardly to said yoke and collar, a pair of similar front sections Within said opening, one of said sections being seamed to said front panel along one side edge of the opening therein and along the bottom edge of said opening to the midpoint thereof and leaving an unseamed portion along the remainder of the bottom edge of said one section, the other section being seamed to said front panel along the other side edge of the opening therein and along the remaining portion of the bottom edge of said opening to the midpoint thereof and leaving an unseamed portion along the remainder of the bottom edge of said other section, each of said sections including laterally spaced Wing portions at the upper end thereof with one wing portion seamed to said front panel, yoke and collar and the other wing portion forming the upper end of the unseamed flap portion, each of said sections having buttons arranged along the seamed edges thereof and buttonholes along the unseamed edges thereof whereby said flap portions may be disposed relative to each other in a variety of arrangements and secured in a selected arrangement.
