Patented May 5 iNVENTDR WHNESSES ATTORNEYS u s rnriis' PATENT. orricn.

' To-oll wlwm, inn/y concern:

-ful Necktie, of which the following, is a.

to devise'a novel-necktie, which will over- Be 't known that I, CHARLns SnroMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing-inthe city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and use-' specification.

In neckties .and other-devices of the 'same general character and .use,'as heretofore con structed, the portion of the tie where the knot is madeis' liable to become stretched or distorted after the same has been worn for a comparatively short length of time, and in cases where the tie has been knitted, if the thread becomes broken the threads are liable to. pull out and spoil theefi'ect of the tie.

It is the purpose of my present invention come the detectsj-l-ierein above referred to,

and to this end I havedevised a nove'hneckhe or similar device wherein the warps are closer together at the places where the knotis to be made than other portions of the necktie, the band portion of the tie also pref; erably having-the warps closer together than the warps at the end portions of the necktie.

With the .above 'in view my invention in its broad and generic scope 'consists'of a novel construction of a necktie.

It further consists of other novel features of construction, all as will be'hereinafter fully set forth. 1

For the purpose of more clearly illustrating my invention, I have shown herein one form thereof which is at present preferred by me, since this embodiment has been found in practice to give satisfactory and reliable results, althoughjt is of course to be understood that the var'ious'instrumentalities of which my invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and that my invention is not limited to the precise arrangement and organization of these instrumentalities as herein,set forth.

igure 1 is a plan View of a necktie embodying my invention. Figs. 2, 3, and 4 are transverse vertical sections of the necktie on lines w:v, g z and zz, respectively. Fig. 5 is a front elevation .of a portion of the mechanism employed in connection with the manufacture of the necktie herein referred to. Fig. 6 is a front elevation of the parts seen in Fig. 5 with certainof said parts in different positions from the corresponding, ones in Fig. 5. Fig. 7 is a side elevation of I Specification of Letters Patent.

width is-reached after which the remaining portions 4 are continued to any desir length. i

In the manutaeture of the necktie herein dcsm'ibed the following 'sterpsare-employed. The warps 5 are drawn in a warp'beam G and are passed through the heddles7, 8, 9 aHdIO and from thence through the reed H to breast beam 12 and from the latter to wnfiy desired point, that any well known means may he employed to actuate the several'parts above described. It is to be observed that-the reed 11 1 st the top'as at 13, so that when said is in its lowermost position it draws thewarps 5 close together as will be understood from Fig. :6. \Vhen the reed 11 is in its uppermost position vthe warps 5 are spread outas will be understood from 5. When the wanps 5 are in their position in a. loom, the'heddles? and 8 form the shed for a shuttle 14, which, when shot through said shed, carries the weft or filling 15 with it, after which the shed is closed to bind the weft The reed 11 is then brought forward to beat the weft into position, it being understood that said reed 11 is in its highest position as seen in Fig. 5, so as to spread the warps 5 to their full extent which corresponds to the portion 4 of the necktie 1. The heddles 7 and 8 are nowbrought into a position to place the warps 5 out of the ath of a shuttle 14, after which the hed es 9 and 10 which were out of the path of a shuttlelet are now brought into its path so that when a shed is formed thereby in the warps 5, theweft 15 may be carried therethrough by said shuttle, bound into the fabric and beaten into position by the reed 11. The heddles 7 ahd 8 are again brought into operative position with respect to a shuttle, while the heddles 9 and 10 are brought out ot' commission.

The operation'of the parts as herein ,de scribed continues until a sufficient length of a portion 4 of a necktie has been woven,

"tgiitiilar .niuneralsof reference indicatef 1 I i I of thmpzirts seen in Fig. 77, with certain of after which the reed 11 islowered," gradu ally, so as to' bringl the warps 5, therein closer and closer together by reason of the flare in said reeds-thereby producing the portion 3 in the left hand portion of the necktie 1 in Fig; '1. When the reed 11 is in its lowermost positionthe ortion 13 of "as will be understood from Fig. 6, wherethroughout the portions 4 and E2,"the Warps said reed draws the warps 5 c ose together,

dles 7 and 8 produce the upper portion a ofa necktie 1, and the heddles 9' and 10 produce the, lower portion bthereof. It will thus be apparent that the warps throughout-the knot forming portions are spaced adifl'erent distance. from each other than they are throughout the portion 2 being preferably and the warps at .theend portion being spaceda greater distance fronreach'other artistic knot can be formed than with neckdo ties of the usual construction, .and since the spaced an equal distance frornea'ch other than they 'are throughout the other portions of the necktie.

In my present invention 1- have devised a novel reversible necktie, ,in which the knot forming portions. have agreater stifinessthan other portions thereof, so, that a more knot forming portions are the portions which I ordinarily wear out first the durability and life of the necktie is largely increased. By

ing' thekhot formingportions, the picks at the end of the band will'be' tiner than in the other portions of the band; v It .will now be apparent that I vised a novel and useful'construction ofa necktie or Similar device, which embodies the features of advantage enumerated 'as." desirable in the statement ofthe invention and have de the above description, and while I have, in

the present instance, shown and-describeda preferred embodiment thereof which has been found in practice to give satisfactory and reliable results, it is to be understood that the same'is susceptible of modification 1n various particulars without departing from the spirit orscope of the invention'or Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by L'e.t-. f ters Patent, -is

sacrificing any of its advantages.

An integral woven necktie, formed iota a laterally. reduced band'portion, having. its

warps arranged in longitudinal relation,

'kno't forming. portions of increased width having-the warps-. composing the same ar-' ranged in close relation,- and end portions having their warps spaced apart, the picks inthe lmot forming portions being finer than-the picks. of the-end portions-whereby jected to a strain and wear will be strongand durableywhile thejend -portions, comthe knot forming p0rtions which*arej sub-y posed of the spacedwarps and which are not subjected to strain, Will be relatively; soft and pliable, permitting ease of' tying and Witnessesi I a '.,E.'HAYWARD FAIRBANKS,
