,CQMBINED SLEEVE AN D MITTEN FOR GARMENTS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. H, 1919.

Application filed December 12, 1918. Serial No. 266,368.

To all whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, HARRY A. KAUFMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combined Sleeves and Mittens for Garments, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.

This invention relates to a combined sleeve and mitten for garments, and its object is to provide a mitten or similar hand protecting means which will be permanently attached to the sleeve of the garment or be made integral therewith, so that it can not be lost by the wearer of the garment and which, when not in use, can be folded or tucked away in the'sleeve, without causing the garment to look unsightly. Another object of the invention is the provision of a pocket or similar means inside the sleeve for holding the mitten or glove in place while not in use, so as to prevent it from sliding out accidentally. While my invention is applicable to any kind of garment which is worn. as a protection against cold, it has been designed especially for, use in connection with sweaters, and it has been so shown in the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification. It is to be. understood, however, that this is an example only, and that I do not wish to limit myself to the use of my invention in connection with sweaters.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a front view of a sweater, showing the two sleeves with the mittens in position for use; Fig. 2'is a rear view of the lower portion of one ofthe sleeves with its mittens; Fig. 3 is a section on line 33 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3, but showing the mitten in its folded-in position, this section being taken on line H of-Fig. 5; Fig. 5 is a section taken on line 5-5 of Fig. 4; and Fig. 6 is an outside view of the lowerportion of the sleeve, with the mitten in the golded-in position, invisible from the out- S1 e. r

In Fig. l I have shown a knitted sweater A with sleeves B, each ending in a mitten C preferably made or knitted integral therewith. The mitten is, however, not connected with the sleeve over its whole circumference, but only along the front portion of the portion of the sleeve. There is, therefore, formed between the sleeve proper and the mitten a slot or opening D extending circumferentially over the rear portion of the sleeve, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3.

When it is desired to wear the sweater without using the mittens, these can be tucked away or folded into the sleeves, ad-

jacent to the front portion of the sleeves, as shown in Figs. 4 and 5, the opening D allowing the hand to be passed therethrough, so as to extend beyond the sleeve end. For the purpose of holding the mittens in this tucked-away position, and of preventing them from coming out accidentally or when the sweater is being put on, I preferably provide a piece of cloth or the like,secured to the inside of the front portion of the sleeve, as by stitching or otherwise, so as to form a pocket E. This pocket is open at its side adjacent to the lower end of the sleeve, so that the mitten can be readily folded back into the pocket and will be held in such position inside the sleeve, without interfering in any way with the wearing of the sweater. The pocket is preferably closed at its upper end. lhis a distinct advantags, for the reason that in putting the sweater on, with the mitten in the folded in position, there is no danger of the mittens being pushed out accidentally by the hand or arm passing through the sleeve. It will also be seen that the length of the pocket is larger than that of the mitten, so that the latter can lie adjacent to the sleeve for itswhole length, without requiring a folding of the mitten itself into two or more folds.

As will appear from Figs. 4, 5, and 6, the

mitten in this folded-back position will be entirely invisible from the outside and will, therefore, not mar the appearance of the sweater.

I am aware that garments of this general type have been made witha mitten or glove attached to the sleeve; this has the disadvantage that it adds two extra thicknesses of material to the end of the sleeve. Furthermore, the mittens or gloves of these garments are adapted to be folded outside of the sleeve, thus causing the latter to look unsightly and bulgy, the mitten or glove being generally folded over more than once. In garments of this kind, the lower end of the sleeve, with the mitten folded on the outside in several layers, is liable to catch very easily in doors, etc., and the mitten will thus either be torn or get out of order,

even when it is secured with buttons or' terial has been somewhat exaggerated, for the sake of clearness, the mitten Wlll, as a;''

side the sleeve, and will thusnot interfer at all with the wearing of the sweater.

WVhile I hzive shown in the drawings a mitten, havinga stall or small pocket for the thumb and a large pocket or space for the other fingers, it will be clear that I might use just as well a regular glove having an individual stall for each finger, or any other hand covering. These and other modi fications may be made without departing from the nature of my invention as set forth in the appended claims.

I claim: I p
