-a newand improved weatherproof garment,

preferably in the form of a shirt, more especially designed for use by loggers and other persons and arranged to conceal a weatherproof lining or cape and to allow convenient removal thereof to permit of washing the garment whenever it is desired to do so. 7

In order to accomplish the desired result use is made of a shirt, a cape forming an integral part of the said shirt and a lining or cape of weatherproof material and interposed between the said shirt and its cape and held removably therebetween.

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying draw-- ings forming a part of this specification, in.

which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a front perspective view of'the garment as applied; Fig. 2 is a rear perspective view of the same; Fig. .3 is a front elevation of the garment with parts in section; Fig. 4 is a front elevation of the lining or waterproof cape as it appears when in position between the shirt and cape; Fig. 5 is an enlar ed sectional plan'view of the garment;-an Fig. 6 is a plan view of the lining or waterproofcape in extended position.

The weatherproof garment consists essentially of a shirt A, a cape B forming an integral part of the shirt 'A, and, a lining or cape O of weatherproof material and removably interposed 'between the shirt A and the cape B. The shirt'A is of usual construction and consists essentially of a body A, the bosom of which is open at the front as indicated'at A and the shirt is preferably provided with a collar A .and with the usual sleeves A. sists of a body B open atthe front and'having the front edges fastened to the open front A 'by-suitable stitches, the sides of the body B being attached to the sides of the body A. The shoulder and sleeve portions B of the cape B are seamless and over- The cape B con- Specification of Letters Patent. l Patented Bea-15, 1914 Application filed June 5, 1914. Serial No. 843,156.

lie the corresponding portions. of the shirt and the edge of the cape neck, the, said sleeves B being, secured at their bottom edges to the shirt sleeves A* a distance above the bottoms thereof, as plainly indicated in 3, the outer ends of .the sleeves B terminating a distance from the outer ends g of the shirt sleeves. By this arrangement the cape B is open along the lower edge of the bottom and at the ends of the sleeves B The neck portion of the cape B is sewed to the neckband of the shirt so that the collar 'A readily overlies the cape B. The lining or cape C is formed from a single piece of weatherproof material, such as oiled cloth and the like, and it consists of front flaps ,C spaced apart and merging with the neck C and with the shoulder and sleeve portions G which latter merge with the back C, as plainl shown in Figs. 4 and 6. The front flaps C? are provided adjacent the neck 0 with buttonholes C adapted to engage buttons D attached to the shirt A at.the front and opposite sides of the opening A and a distance below the neckband, as plainly indicated in Fig. 3. The lining or cape C is a trifle less in size than the cape B and its margin follows'the margin of the cape so that the lining or cape C is not visible when interposed between the shirt A andthe cape B, as will be readily understood by reference to the dotted lines in Fig. 3. Although fastening devices such as buttons D and'buttonhole's C are used they are not absolutely necessary as the lining or cape C is held firmly in place between the shirt A and the cape B so as to snugly underlie the latter and is of the same shape.

It will be noticed that by the openings afforded by the detachment of the lower end of the back, the lower ends of the flaps B, and the outer ends of the sleeves, the lining or cape C can be readily removed from between the shirt A and the cape B to allow of washing the garment without danger of ruining the weatherproof lining or cape C, which latter can be readily replaced after the garment has been washed and dried.

The back of the cape and the lining or cape C- extend preferably farther down than the front, as will be readilyunderstood by reference to Figs-1, 2 and 3, as the back of the garment when in use is more exposed to the weather, especially when it rains or snows,

- than the front.

or caipe detached relatively to the shirt and the cape, it is not liable to bind at any point and hence allows perfect freedom of the body and arms of the user.

It will also be .inotic'ed'that in a dry, warm.

season the lining or cape C, can be readily removed and replaced Whenever needed.

I am' aware that it is not broadly new to interpose a lining between the shirt and the cape, but such ining as heretofore used formed. an integral part of the shirt and cape and hence could not be removed whenever it was desired to wash the'garment.

Although'the lining or cape G is shown and described above-as made of a single piece of weatherprooffabric material it. is evident that it maybe made in sections sewedtogether. f.

' In order to simplify ,the description it has 20.

been deemed advisable' to describe the liningor cape .C as interposed between the shirt A-and the cape B but I do not limit myself tmthe outer side of the' body portion and secured permanently thereto," said gape having a back portion, sleeveortions'overl'ying the upper portions of thetshirt sleeves, and front or breast portions extending down over the breasts of the shirt body, the said cape as aforesaid being permanently secured to the shirt body,

but being detached therefrom at the lower edge of the back portion, at the lower ed es of the front or breast portions, and at t e ends of the sleeve portions, all substantially as described, and a detachable waterproof cape conforming substantlally to the cape portion. of the. shirt adapted ,to be intro duced betweenthe shi'rtbody and the cape thereof by passing the breast portions vof the waterproof cape up under the backt of the shirt cape and over the shoulders of the shirt proper, and the arm portions of the" waterproof cape drawn outwardly to underlie "the sleeve ,portions of the'shirt cape, all

substantially as and for-the purposefset forth;

In testimony whereof have signed my name to this specification 1n the presence of two subscribingwitnesses. 4 .sIGMUND LIP-MAN Witnesses:
