Application led December 26, 1919. Serial No. 347,285.
To all whom t may concer/m:
Be it known that I, LAvnnR CLEVELAND, of Mansfield, Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gloves, and do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.`
My invention relates to gloves, or other hand coverings, and more particularly to gloves made of woven fabric, suc-h as canvas, and my object is to greatly increase their wearing properties with practically no increase in cost of manufacture, and to this end my invention consists in the glove, or other hand covering constructed substantially as hereinafter specified and described by or comprised within the language or meaning of the claims.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is a view, inl elevation, of a glove, embodying my invention, showing the palm side;
Fig. 2 is alike view with the glove turned inside out;
Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section on the line 3-3 0f Fig. l; U
Fig. 4 is a cross section on the line 4.-4 of Fig. l.
rIhe type or kind of glove which I show 'in the drawing is one in which palm and back are of canvas, cut to conform to the contour 0f the hand and fingers and stitched together along the edges, and joined to a knitted Wristband. lIhe great wear in this class of glove falls on the palm, or inner side thereof, and not on the back, so that the life of the glove is limited to the wearing qualities of the palm. bviously, prolongation of the life of the palm, if it can be done at but little or no` great cost, and without causing any discomfort to the wearer, is Va very desirable thing, and by my invention I accomplish all this.
In carrying myv invention into practice, I make aback 10 of a single thickness or ply of cloth, or fabric, as usual, and the palm (including the four lingers and thumb) of :two thicknesses or plies, an outer ply 11 and an inner ply l2, these two being duplicates, and in contour matching the back, and I quilt these two plies, or ioin them at close intervals, bylines 13 of stitching that preferably extend only longitudinally of the glove, and clear across the fingers. By thus joining-.the two plies to one another they lie compactly together, and, hence, no objectionable bulk or thickness of material exists to cause discomfort to the wearer and diminish the flexibility of the palm portion of the glove,` which should be of high flexibility, and no buckling or bulging of one ply from-another can occur in doubling or closing up the hand in grasping. The added cost of manufacture is merely the second ply material and the trifling expense of stitching the two plies together. In all other respects my glove involves nothing more in its manufacture, than the ordinary single ply back and palm glove.
l. A hand covering comprising single ply back and plural ply palm members and all plies being of cloth, the cloth of the palm` plies being continuous over the entire palm area. and the palm plies being joined by lines of stitches that extend only longitudinally of the hand covering and spaced apart trans'- vers'ely thereof throughout their longitudinal extent. Y
2. A glove having a single ply 'back and a double ply palm, the palm plies being joined by 1lines of stitches that extend only longitudinally of the glove and crossing the iingers lengthwise thereof, said lines of stitches being spaced apart throughout their longitudinal extent, and all plies being of cloth,
the cloth of the palm plies being continuous over the entire palm area.
In testimony that I claim'the foregoing, I have hereunto set m hand. LA RR CLEVELAND.
