WITNESSES Patented July 3, 1923.



Application filed Febrnnry 16, 1921. Serial No. 445,424.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, SAUL GELARIE, a' citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented new andlmproved Re- ,enforced Bloomers, of which the following' is a full, clear, and exact description.

The invention relates to wearing apparel and its object is. to provide new and improved reenforced bloomers or pnntalets 11rranged t render the legs exceedingly strong and durable to withstand strains and Wear incident to the userriding horseback or otherwise exercising and spreading the legs when climbing hills or during country run? ning or indulging in other at l of construction, as hereinafter shown and -ings forming a described and then specifically. pointed out i'n the-claims. s

A practical embodiment of the invention is represented vin the accompanying draw-- art of this specification, in which similar c aracters ofreference indicate corresponding partsin all the views.

Figure 1 is a, front perspective VView of the bloomers;

Figure 2 is a rear perspective view of' th'c saine;`

lFigure 3 is an enlarged sectional plan View of a.. portion of the some on the line 3-3 of Figure l* and Figure 4 is a plan view of the reinforcing pieces. 4

. The reenforced bloomers comprise in gem eral construction a body 10 and legs 11, of which the body 10 is rovided at the waist with hem 12 containing an elastic bend 13 for tightly holdingr the bloomers in position on the waist o the wearer. The lower ends of the legs 11 are provided with heim 14 containing elastic bands 15 for snugly fitting the bottoms of the legs 1l in position on the Wearers legs` In prin-tir. the body 10 and legs 11 are mede of two pieces of knitted or woven textile material fastened together by stitches to provide front and rear main trunk seams 2O and 2l extending along the front and rear median iincs ot the body and joining at the crotch, and the y two pieces are fastened togethrby stitches,

to form main le seams 22 extending along the inner sides o the legs 11 and intersecting the seams 20 und 2l at the crotch.

The bloomers are reenforced by two front pieces .and two rear pieces 26 (shown in Figure 4l, and joined at their inner edges 2T and 28 with the seams-22 and f'stenedk it their outer edges by stitches 29 and 30 to the'body 10 and legs il, :is plainly indicated in Figures 1, 2 and 3. The lone;l ends of thc reinforcing pieces 25 and 26 are joined with the bems 14 of thelegs 11: By reference to the 'drawings it will be, noticed that the reinforcing pieces 25 and 26 gradually, increase in Width from the bottoms of the legs 11 to the upper ends thereof, and the upper ends are curved inwardly towards each other to join with the front and -rear seams 2O and 2l. It will further be noticed "i that the front reinforcing pieces 25 are4 somewhat narrower than the rear reinforcing pieces 26 for the purpose of providing the desired fullness :it the seat of the bloomers to enable the user to comfortobl sit down on n saddle, chair or other support. It will further he noticed thatby reinforcing the bloomers thronghouttlie entire length of the legs at the inner portions thereof the legs are capable of withstanding undue st rain and Wear incident to the user riding lnirsebnclr or otherwise exercising or spreading the legs when climbing hills or when running or indulging in other athletic sports.

ln practice the reinforcing pic-ces 25 and 2o nre of the' suine rnnterial`as that of which the body 10 und the legs 11 are made.

Having thus described my invention, `I` claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent: Y

2. A bloomer gernient having front and' rczir parts that ure united by accntrnl seein that extends down the front, through the crotch and up at the rear thereof and also having an inseam that extends continuously up one leg, across the crotch and down the other leg and separate strips of material secnred to the arment and each strip having an edge t at is included in the said central seam and each strip having another edge that is included in the inseam.
