Application led January 16, 1922. Serial No.l 529,769.

To all whom it may concern.' Be it known that I, CHARLESO. SHANNoN, a citizen of the United States,'residing at Columbus, in the county of Franklin and Sta-te of hio7 have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Necktie Fasteners, of Which the following is al specification. This invention relates more particularly to vthe type of necktie l0 knot either imitation or real andv when in place has two dangling ends in front of the shirt. Unless these dangling ends are somehow secured they occasion a great deal of 'annoyance to the wearer,A summer when a vest is not worn. The object of the present invention is. an improved means embodied in or made a part of the tie itself whereby said endsmay be secured to the shirt and kept from flying about and annoying and inconveniencing the wearer.

The invention is embodied in the example shown and described, the feature of novelty being finally claimed.v v

In the accompanying drawing-'- equipped with my invention.

. In the views 5 is the knot which can be of y .30 the real or imitation or made up kind, and

edges a piece of fabric 8 to form with the that is formed with av especially in the Figure l is a. rear View of the necktie Fig:- 2 isa-cross section on the line II-v-II end 6 an elongated loop lor pocket open how-` 10v ever at both the top and bottom so that the necktie end 7 can be passed'down into or through it and the piece 8 manipulated with the fingers. The piece 8 is provided with..

one or more button holes as'shown at 9 and 4 5 y 9a whereby the piece 8 may be secured to a f button on the shlrt of the wearer of the necktie. lVhere a plurality of button holes is provided a nicer adjustment of the tie may` be made for differences in the distances offy the nearest appropriate button for fastening the tie.

With this invention it will'be observed that both ends of thev tie can be heldl neatly flat against the shirt andv from any possi-y bility of flying about to the annoyanceofthe wearer. v The inventioncan be used with equal advantage in both kinds of tie and the forms of the parts can be varied without departing fromthe gist of the invention as claime What I claim is: t, y The combination witha necktie of the variety described, of a substantially rectanguy lar piece o f fabric secured by lines of stitches at its opposite vertical edges only to the rearV side of one of the end portions of the necktie so as to form an openin for the insertion v between it and said portlon of the necktie of the other end portion of the necktie' said 70` y i rectangular piece formed with a button hole located between said vertical lines of stitches to engage a button on a shirt and thereby secure said necktie end portions closeto the shirt front and prevent said portions from V accidental movement with reference thereto..`
