Feb. 25, 199 M. L. sumovrrz COMBINED BARBECUE APRON AND MITTENS I Filed May 16. 1966 INVENTOR.

Morris L. S/imo w'fz United States Patent 3,428,962 COMBINED BARBECUE APRON AND MITTENS Morris L. Slimovitz, Morris Manufacturing (10., R0. Box 219, Newborn, Tenn. 38059 Filed May 16, 1966, Ser. No. 550,507 US. Cl. 248 Int. Cl. A41d 13/04, 19/00 1 Claim ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE This invention relates to new and useful improvements in aprons, and in particular the invention concerns itself with aprons such as may be worn by outdoor chefs while cooking food on grills, barbecue pits, and the like.

Outdoor barbecuing activities require the use of an apron to safeguard clothing against soiling by charcoal dust or grease, and against possible damage by flying sparks. Also, such activities require the use of a mitten or a pair of mittens for handling a hot grill, plates and other cooking utensils or implements.

The principal object of the invention is to provide an improved apron in combination with a pair of mittens which are separably attached to the apron and thus are conveniently carried thereby when not in use, but which may be readily detached from the apron when the use of such mittens is desired.

Taken in another context, the mittens may be regarded as external pockets which are separably attached to the apron, such pockets having a lining of heat insulating material so that upon their separation from the apron, the pockets may be conveniently used as mittens.

Another feature of the invention resides in the provision of a towel which is attached to the apron and occupies a position between the mittens.

Other advantages of the invention reside in its simple construction, in its convenient use, and in its adaptability to economical manufacture.

These together with other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction and operation as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals refer to like parts throughout, and in which:

FIGURE 1 is a perspective view showing the combined apron and mittens in position on the body of a user;

FIGURE 2 is an enlarged elevational view of the apron per se in a flat form;

FIGURE 3 is an enlarged perspective view of one of the mittens; and

FIGURE 4 is an enlarged, fragmentary, sectional detail showing the separable fastener means between the apron and one of the mittens.

Referring now to the accompanying drawings in detail, the invention comprises a combined barbecue apron and mittens, the same being designated generally by the reference numeral 10.

The apron proper 11, made of fabric or other suitable material, is of the usual type including a lap covering portion 12 equipped with a pair of tie strings .13, and an integral chest covering portion 14 equipped with a See neck encircling band 15. If desired, the chest covering portion 14 may also be provided with a pair of conventional pockets 16.

A pair of mittens 17 are superposed on the front surface of the lap covering portion 12 of the apron, the mittens being in transversely spaced relation at opposite sides of the vertical medial line of the garment.

The mittens 17 are separably attached to the apron, preferably by separable fastener members consisting of strips of Velcro material 18 which are stitched to the apron portion 12, and coacting strips 19 of the same material which are stitched to the mittens 17. The physical characteristics of the Velcro material are such that when the strips 19 on the mittens are pressed against the strips 18 on the apron, the strips 19, 18 remain attached together, thus supporting the mittens in position on the apron as illustrated in FIGURE 1. Of course, the mittens may be readily removed from the apron by inserting hands into the mittens and pulling the same away from the apron, so that the fastener strips 19 become seaparated from the strips 18. Thus, the mittens may be conveniently carried on the apron when they are not in use, but are readily available when use thereof is desired.

It will be also noted that while the fastener strips 19 are applied to the mittens v17 in a transverse direction, the strips 18 are applied to the apron obliquely, so that when the mittens are in position on the apron, they slant downwardly and inwardly and their open ends or entrances 20 are readily accessible for insertion of hands into the mittens. Also, it will be apparent that since the mittens are initially carried by the apron, they are supported so that a hand may be inserted into each mitten without the necessity of holding that mitten with the other hand.

As will be observed in FIGURE 4, each mitten has inner and outer walls 21, 22, respectively, with a lining or padding 23 of heat insulating material therebetween, so that upon its separation from the apron, the mitten may be conveniently used for handling hot implements or utensils.

In a different context, the mittens 17 when applied to the apron may be regarded in terms of external pockets which are separably attached to the apron and which are capable of being separated therefrom to function as mittens.

For further convenience of the user, a vertically elongated towel 24 may be provided on the lap covering portion 12 of the apron between the mittens 17. The upper end of the towel 24 may be permanently secured to the apron, as by the stitching 25, or if preferred, Velcro material may be used to removably attach the towel to the apron, so that the towel may be separated from the apron in the same manner as the mittens.

The foregoing is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention as claimed.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

1. The combination of an apron including a lap cover ing portion, a pair of first plush pile fastener strips secured to the front surface of said lap covering portion and in downwardly diverging spaced relation at opposite sides of the aprons vertical medial line, a pair of mittens, each mitten having a palm cuff portion, each said cuff portion having a second plush pile fastener strip thereon adapted for engagement by one of said first strips whereby said mittens may be stationarily secured to said apron in 3 4 a downwardly converging manner with the entrance of 2,846,685 8/ 1958 Ehrich 251 said mitten opening upwardly for permitting rapid inser- 3,105,972 10/1963 Christopher. tion of a users hands into said mittens, said engaging 1,240,728 9/1917 Jordan 2l58 strips further allowing substantially effortless removal 3,174,156 3/1965 Dale et al 2115 from and return of the mittens to the apron by a user 5 3,210,773 10/1965 Lewis 2l58 X having his hands in the mittens.
