GARMENT ATTACHMENT.

Application filed May 17,-

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, MAX PUGATSKY and BARRETT H. GoLnsTnIN, citizens of the .United States, and residents of the county of New York, city and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in a Garment Attachment, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates generally to means for maintaining apparel in their desired position and associated condition on the wearer and coordinately involves the association with a garment of means whereby the garment is not only caused to maintain its desired contours but also its desired snug association with the body of the wearer.

While we have illustrated our invention as involving the association thereof with trousers, it will be understood, as will be more fully pointed out herein, that this is done merely for purposes of illustration and as disclosing one manner of use and association of our invention.

For the purpose of attaining these obr jects and such other objects as may here inafter appear or be pointed out, we have illustrated embodiments of our invention in the drawings wherein- Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the upper partof a pair of trousers on a wearer with the trousers partly open so as to disclose one embodiment of our invention in association therewith; I

Fig. 2 is a view in perspective of the attachment of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a cross-section thereon taken on line 33 of Fig. 2;

Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the manner of making one of the elements of our invention;

Fig. 5 is an enlarged fragmentary view illustrating one of the features of our invention;

Fig, 6 is a view showing our attachment associated with the trousers in a way slightly different from that shown in Fig. 1;

Fig. 7 is a side elevation of a dissected portion of a hair-cloth layer from a strip shown in Figure 4.

Before describing our invention We. will premise that broadly considered it is an arrangement to be associated with a piece of apparel which surrounds or is associated with the body or the limbs and which it as in Fig. 1,

1924. Serial No. '714,040.

is desired shall be positioned and as 5 sociated with the body not only so as to maintain this position and association, but also to give the wearer the feeling that it is so being maintained and associated, and we will further premise that the attachment so will naturally take an embodiment in its specific form depending upon the piece of apparel with which it is to be associated and that in the embodiment which we will now describe in which the attachment is as to be associated with trousers at the waistband, the attachment may be in the form of sections to be positioned at the sides and immediately above the hip bones of the wearer for purposes that will appear and be pointed out as this embodiment is described in detail. It will, of course, be understood that in this particular manner of association added functions are Performed as will appear and that therefore attachments of this character can be associated with the trousers other than by limiting their position as will be set forth in the connection with the embodiment of Fig. 1.' Upon viewing Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawing, it will be observed that our attachment is made up generally of three parts, namely, the pad portion to which we will apply generally the reference-character 10, the friction elements or members 12, of

,which we can use any preferred or desired number, three being shown in the drawing for purposes of illustration, and the spacing members 14 whose function will be more fully set forth hereinafter.

The pad member 10 is preferably made in the form of an envelope made of separate portions attached in any preferred or desired manner as by stitches and is filled with the uncompressed padding 11.

When the pad member 10 is positions for instance by detachably associating it with the inside of the waistband of the trousers, its position will be immediately above the hip bone and the lowermost of the floating ribs, which portion of the human anatomy generally presents a break in the horizontal and vertical crosssectional points or presents a space between the .trousers and the body, both of which are ob ectiOn-able for obvious reasons.

The attachment.illustrated in Fig. 2 when positioned as illustrated in Fig. 1 will serve not only the functions to be more fully hereinafter set forth, but due to the presence of the padding and regardless of the presence of the other features, will serve not only to overcome the shortcomings incident to the character of the human anatomy at the points referred to but will also cause the trousers to maintain their desired full contours at the waistband and will also give to the wearer that feeling of snugness and comfort which will result when the space which is generally present is taken up by the padding.

The friction members 12 are generally of such a character that they present to a garment engaging elements which are presented in such a direction that they will prevent the garment from moving in a direction opposite to that in which they are presented.

Although we term these elements as friction members because in the illustrated embodiment they are so generally disclosed, it

layers and then by will be understood that from the standpoint of the lnoader phase of our invention they may take a character and form as to actually grip the garment or in any other manner positively engage the garment to serve the purposes set forth.

Upon viewing Figs. 4 and 5, it will be observed that in the embodiment hereindisclosed, the members 12 are so arranged as to present an edge 13 which as shown is pinked, scalloped or serrated, and the function of which is, as will be obvious, to increase the engaging action of the members 12, not only because of the increased engaging surface which is presented at the lower edge, but also because of the various angles at which this surface is presented and the sharp points given to portions thereof.

v The members 12 are each preferably made up of outer layers of any desired or preferred outer facing fabric within which is positioned one or more layers of haircloth or other friction material, and upon viewing Fig. 4, it will be observed that in our preferred method of constructing these members, we position between a doubled portion of the outer facing fabric a doubled over portion of the haircloth so as to have them nest one within the other and by the employment of any adhesive or binder, such as strips of rubber, plication of heat or pressure, or both, will produce a binding action between the nested cutting the assembly 12 to produce the serrated edges 13, the construction shown more in detail in Fig. 5 will be produced in which we will have superposed layers of haircloth presenting the members 14 which also gutta percha, etc., the ap-,

hair-like projections or darts 13' which are the characteristic result produced when haircloth is cut; in other words, we not only have the frictional or supporting engagement of the members 12 in general and the added action of such members incident to the employment of the serrated edges and of the angular position at which they are presented, but this action is still further increased by the character of material which is employed.

In Figure 7 there is illustrated a dissected portion of hair cloth included in the strip 12, which has been cut to form serrated or pinked edges 13. It shows the dart like or hair projections 13' characteristic of haircloth when it is cut.

For the purpose of still further increasing the functioning of the elements 12 for the purposes for which theyare intended, we present these elements. 12 at an angle to the padding 10, as clearly shown in Fig. 3, and this we do by positioning between the members 12 and the member 10 the padding are envelopes made of any desired fabric within which is received an uncompressed padding.

Upon viewing Fig. 3 of the drawing, it will be observed that the elements 10, 12 and 14 are assembled by passing one or rows of stitches through each ofthe mem bers 12 and the member 14 positioned therebeneath and through the member 10. This results in the following functions: the pad 10 is caused to be constricted at predetermined points, depending upon the points at which the stitches 15 are run in and also due to the presence of the padding 14. Furthermore, the padding 14 due to the employment of the stitches will be caused to be constricted at their upper ends and to bulge at their lower ends, thus increasing the angularity of its outer surface and increasing the angular position of the members 12 so as to cause their lower ends to be presented at a still further increased angle.

When the attachment shown in Fig. 2 is detachably fixed in position as in Fig. 1 by any desired arrangement such as a snap fastener 18, the padding 10 will perform the functions already set forth above. The members 12 and more particularly their lower edges 13 will engage with the shirt both frictionally and positively and pro- ,VOIlt the shirt from moving upwardly, which lllOl'O as positioned above the hip bone for thev added functions that are performed by it when so positioned. It will be understood,

-however, that the attachment of Fig. 2 can be repeated around the trousers as often as it is felt advisable or necessary, and at any points that it may be found advisable or necessary and although in Fig. 1 we have illustrated this attachment as fragmentary,

' that is, as covering only part of the waistline, it will be understood that this is not.

necessary as it may be continuous.

Further, when mounted in the manner indicated upon resilient pads, the pinked edges with the dart-like hairs carried thereby are caused to be placed into more perfect engaging position upon compression or bending of the padding or resilient cushion formed immediately thereunder, by reason of the non-distensibility of the face carrying the darts as compared with the opposite face. Operation of the above nature may be caused by pressure on such attachment or by bending thereof 'wherever located or by pressure and bending caused by body movement.

Having thus described our invention and illustrated its use, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. An attachment for garments comprising a resilient and compressible padded body member having surface gripping means capable of penetrating the surface of fabric which it touches thereon whereby when fastened to a garment and worn with apparel relatively positioned thereto, predetermined location of the two will be maintained.
