Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed July 25, 1913. SerialNo. 781,087.
7 '0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY G. HARTMANN,
a citizen of the United States,--residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Gloves, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates, more particularly, to gloves of the variety known as working gloves.
It has been found desirable to form gloves, and particularly those of the variety above referred to, with what are termed outside seams in order that no objectionable ridges or obstructions be presented to the fingers of the wearer; but the provision of such seams, as gloves have hitherto been provided, is objectionable, as the thread with which the seams are made is exposed and under the hard usage to which the gloves are subjected becomes impaired and soon wears out, thus causing the seams to open.
My object is to provide in a glove of the character employing outside seams, novel, simple and efiective means for protecting such seams.
Referring to the accompanying drawing-Figure 1 is a view in elevation of the palm side of a glove constructed in accord ance with my IDVGHt-lOIl, Fig. 2 is a simi lar view of the opposite side of the glove, a part of the wrist-portion thereof being broken away. Fig. 3 is a section taken at the line 3 on Fig. 1 and viewed in the direction of the arrow showing my improved means stitched to the glove by the same thread as that which secures together the edges of the glove forming the finger portions thereof; and Fig. 4, a view like Fig. 3 showing my improved means sewed to the glove by a separate stitch.
I have chosen for the purpose of illustrating my invention, a well-known construction of working glove, though I .do not wish to be understood as intending to limit my invention to its embodiment in this particular construction of glove, as it may be incorporated in any other construction of glove having outside seams. In the glove illustrated, the parts of the glove forming the .fingers and thumb thereof are cut to the desired form and sewed flatwise together along their edges to form outside sea-ms tice. 1
My improved means for protecting the outside seams of the glove, which may be sewed into place either by the thread which forms said outside sea-ms, or by separate stitching in an peration after the outside seams have been formed, comprise strips 4 of material applied to the flatwise-abutting portions 5 of the glove-sections which form the finger and thumb portions of the glove, to embrace the portions 5 between the edges of said strips and sewed in this positionby stitching them to said portions 5 a sufficient distance from the edges of provide free-sections 7 thereon.
In Fig. 3 the thread which forms the outside seams of the glove is represented at 6 and passes through the edges of the finger portions of the glove and also through the protecting strip 4, whereas in the form shown in Fig. 4 the glove is first stitched as indicated at 6 and the then sewed thereto by the separate stitching 6. The strips 4 should be formed of such material as will curl back upon the bodyportions of the strips 4, as represented in the drawings, either whenthe strips are sewed in place on the portions 5, as stated, or by rubbing contact with the objects being handled by the wearer of the glove. Any suitable relatively pliable material will serve as the material for said strips, relatively soft thin leather being preferred.
It will be noted that by reason of the curling back of the free edges 7 of the strips 4 upon the body-portions 5 of the latter, the stitching at the finger portions of the glove will be covered and thus protected against wear and that such protection will take place regardless of the stitching of the portions 5 together by an outside seam separate from the stitching which secures the strips 4 in place, or by stitching which serves the double function of securing the portions 5 together and the strips 4 in place thereon as in the case of the construction illustrated.
In the drawing, I have shown the strips 4 as substantially coextensive with the flatwise opposed edges of the portions 5 which form the fingers and thumb of the glove, but it will be readily understood that, if desired, the strips 4 may be provided merely in accordance with well-known practhe strips 4 to protecting strip 4' edges of 10 brace between the edges of said strips the said edges of the glove, whereby the free said strips are rendered free to curl back and cover both sides of the seams.
2. In an outside-seam glove, strips of rela- 1b tively' pliable material embracing between their edges parts of the glove to be secured together by outside seams, said strips being ,sewed between their edges to secure them in said embracing position and said parts of the love together by outside seams, whereby t e free edges of said strips are rendered free at opposite sides of said seams to permit them to curl back and cover the stitching securing said parts of the glove together and said strips in place.
