UNITED STATES ELIAS HAUIBENSTOCK, OF BROOKLYN, YORK.
Application filed February y 1926. Serial No. 87,261.
rIhis invention relates to pocket constructions for coats, jackets, trousers and like garments of apparel, and particularly to detachable pockets of this class; and the 5 object of the invention is to provide a pocket which is so constructedas to permit of its detachable mounting in connection with a garment whereby the same may be cleaned or laundered to maintain the pocket in sanitary conditions at all times, and further whereby an old and worn lout pocket may be removed and a new pocket substituted without the exercise of skilled workmanship, and especially such workmanship as would be required in replacing pockets as now attached to garments of different kinds and classes; a further object being to so construct that part of the garment wherein the pocket opening is formed as to permit of the attachment and detachment of my improved pocket therewith; and with these and other objects in view, the invention consists in a device of the class and for the purpose specifi-ed, which is simple in construction, efficient in use, and which is constructed as hereinafter described and claimed.
rFhe invention is fully `disclosed in the following specification, of which the accompanying drawing forms a part, in which` the separate parts of my improvement are designated by suitable reference characters in each' of the views, andV in which Fig. 1 is a sectional and perspective view of a jacket or similar pocket showing the same mounted in connection with the garment.
Fig. 2 is an inside view of the structure shown in Fig. 1 with part of the construction broken away and in section.
Fig. 3 is a sectional detail view of a part of the construction shown in Fig. 1 on an enlarged scale. Y
Fig. 4 is a face View of a part of the waist band portion of a pair of trousers, indicating one of the side pockets, with part of the construction broken away.
Fig. 5 is a section on the line 5 5 of Fig. L1; and, i
Fig. 6 is a partial section on the line 6 6 of Fig. 4.
In Figs. 1 to 3 inclusive, I have shown one form of my improved detachable pocket 10 mounted in connection with the coat or other garment of apparel 11 having a pocket opening 12, which in the construction shown, is closed or covered by a pocket fla-p 1 3. Extending about the periphery of the pocket opening 12 is a strip 14 secured to the garment 11, and attached to this strip or that I. part thereof adjacent the bottom yof the pocket openingV 12, are a plurality of fas-A tening devices 15, preferably the male members of snap fasteners, with which the female members 16 of said fasteners,'secured to the upper edge and outer face of the adjacent part of the pocket 10, are adapted to couple. Similar male members 15a are attached to that part of the strip 141 attached to the rupper portion of the pocket opening of the garment, and female members 16a are adapted to couple with the members 15a, the members 1Ga being secured to the inner face ofV the upper edge portion of the other side wall of the pocket 10. By means of the devices 15 and 16 and 15a-16a, itwill be apparent that the pocket 10 may be attached and detached from the garment or the strips 14 secured to the garment whenever desired.
I also preferably employ overlapping guard strips 17 which extend'into` the pocket 10 vand are attached to the garment around the pocket opening 12 as clearly seen in Fig. 1 of the drawing. The guard strip 17 S5 may be of unitary construction and composed of any` desired material; that is to say, a material similar to that of the garment, 1ining material or the like. It will be noted that these strips will permit yof the free passage of the hand into and out of the pocket without interference with the attaching devices employed for detachably mounting the pocket 10 in position. It will be apparent that the pocket 10 is of the conventional form employed as a side pocket construction for coats, jackets and the like, while in Fig. 41 of the drawing, I have shown a pocket 18 such as employed at the sides of a pair of trousers 19, having a pocket opening 2() extending vertically on the side seam of the trousers. With this form of construction, the upper end of the pocket 18 is closed as seen at 21, Fig. 6 of the drawing, and is provided with a plurality of attaching devices22, the male parts of which are secured to the inner face of the pocket 18 and the female portions of which are secured to the `outer face of the waist band lining strip 23 at the upper edge of the U0 trousers 19. side as seen at 18 Fig. 5 ot the dra-wing, to register with the opening 2O in the trousers, Secured to the trouser around the pocket opening 20 is a strip or strips 2st to which attaching devices are secured; that is to say, the male members of snap tastening devices and 'female memcers of such devices, being secured to the pocket 18 around the pocket opening 18a thereof in such manner as to engage the male members ot such devices, secured to the strip or strips Qfl. Vith this term ot construction, I also preferably employ a guide strip or strips 2G, secured to the trousers around the pocket opening 20, and extending into the pocket 18 to permit ot the tree passage of the hand into and out ot the pocketA without interference with the edges ot' the pocket around the opening 182l or the fastening devices employed.
IWith both terms of construction shown, it will be understood that the pockets 10 and 18 may be attached and detached at will for the purpose of laundering, repair or replacement. By virtue of the construction employed, the several pockets oi' garments or any kind or class may be kept clean at all times, and it worn out from constant use, may be substituted by new pockets, without the exercise of great tailoring skill, as would be necessary and required in the replacement of a pocket as usually constructed.
It will also be apparent that the method of originally constructing the pocket of a garment is materially simplified, 4and while I have shown a specilic form ot attaching means or device for mounting` the pocket in connection with the garment, it will be understood that any suitable means may be employed, such `tor example as hooks and eyes, buttons and button holes and the like; and various other changes and modications of the construction herein shown and described may be made within the scope of the appended claims without departing from rIlhe pocket 18 is open at onev the spirit of my invention or sacrificing its advantages. I
IIaving fully described my invention, .what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:-
1. In a garmenthaving a pocket opening, a strip attached to the garment around the pocket opening, that part o1c the strip adjacent the front lofthe pocket opening having inwardly directed attaching devices, and the port-ion of the strip adjacent the inner partl of the pocket opening having inward# ly directed attaching devices, a detachable pocket, and means on said pocket `for en# gagement with the attaching devices ot said strip to support the pocket in connection with the garment and to register with he pocket opening therein, and other strips on said garment and extending 'into said pocket to permit of the free passage oit the hand into and out of the same.
2. In a garment having a pocket opening, a strip attached to the garment around the pocket opening, that part of the strip adj acent the iront 01"' the pocket opening having inwardly directed attaching devices, and the portion oi the strip adjacent the inner part of the pocket opening having inwardly directed attaching devices, a detachable pocket, and attaching devices on said pocket for engagement with ,the` attachingdevices o1a said strip to support the pocket in connection with the garment and to register with the pocket opening therein, other strips on Asaid garment and extending into said pocket to permit of the free passage et the hand into and out et the same, and the attaching devices on the front side of the pocket being on the outer face ot said side,
while the fastening devices on the inner side of the pocket are on the inner face of said side.
In testimony that I claim the 'foregoing as my invention I have signed my name this 4th day loflieloruary 1926'.
