The said perl;- 'D fuitlieinoe has snbsmntielly ihe :same Width throughou the gi'eniei poi'lion of ite length or body portion :is shown herein, but gifsidually wid-ens nl; ils upper edge toward its ends or exti'eniities? where it is made as wide/relie tively :is the usual tab or buttonhole @dem sione upon collars and is otherwise oonsti'nol'ed or shaped to resemble such tabs o1.` extensions and thus avoid any unusual eppenranees in the collar when ii; is upon the neck. lli'y will be observed oleo that the upper odge of seid extension oi tab poi-tions l is free from the immediate Corneior angle 5 of ehe collez` inward for Sonie distance, soy to about 7, Fig. Q, so that no strain comes upon this angle portion of Jche Collar in handling the seid labs or extensions or in the Wearing; of the collar. Under these fmoi'ing conditions it has been found that e collar will wem' almost indefinitely and not necessarily sustain breakage or injury it the point 5, While with the strain thaI olliei'wiee comes to the said buttonhole eX- 'loneions 'the bnttoning and unbuttoning of the colhii' is rendered much more easy and eoiwenient than fomnerly. .In this connection il; will, of Course, be understood that lhe two paris C and D, which constitute the complete collar as it goes to 'he market and is Worn, are cemented or otherwise adhered oi secured together ovei' at least poitions of their contacting surfaces so as to make them piaclioally one for service sind to keep the parte in right relations. and any suitable ndheeii'e or othei ineens may loe employed for L le 'luminose By cutting the Said recess S ielativelf/ es wide or slightly Widein than the strip D and, by'lleaving said sbrillo fee to bend or dex bellween the edges of the recess regardless ol he ley-down portion of the Collin', l provide 'for easy butioning and imhutl'oning the collar al. this polini., und this adds materia ly to the popularity of the collar among neel-S.
The construction of collar as heretofore deeeribed is essentially a two-piece collar and may obviously be modified Without materially departing from the spiit of the invenion which involves in the maiinlhe use ol' :i Suppleinenlul band or strip having buit-onhole poijtions wherewth free and easy secured therein of relatively narrower: Width etA itsl middle than at its ends to provide widened tabs at the front/of the collar and a free upper` space between the folds of the.
collar .at the rear and having buttonholes in its ends and its middlel portion.
A collar having a; layedown portion and e strip of greater length than the vcollar laid between the band and the said lay-down portion and having ends of substantially thel -seine width as the band and provided with' 'lm tbonholes, the band of the collar being reoe'esed ab its middle and rear and the said v strip having e buttonhole exposed. in said recess. l 3. A twofpiece collar forneck wear oomprising an innerl neck band portion having an outer turn-down portion, and a supplemental strip of narrower width at its' middle `than at its ends secured to said inner band stantially the same Width as said b and portion and adapted to overla'p and have-free play in respect to the end edges thereof.
