S. ROSENBERG CAP Filed May 1 1923 amen 3oz J'aZarrzaa Zara/730132 Patented Aug. ill, with,



' Application filed May 1,

The invention of this application comprises an lD'IPIOVQHlGHt on that of my oopending application (Serial number (305; 07G; filed Decemb r 5, relating a cap with a removable visor, and the p nt invention is concerned with an improveii. in the manner of attaching the removable visor to the body, or head-covering, part of the cap. 7

In its preferred embodiment, the invention consists essentially in a visored cap, or other similar article of headwear, in which the visor and head-covering parts an i united by interlacing connee such manner as to permit COHVGIllBllt tion of one part from the other so that part may be used independently of the other.

The invention further comprehends the provision of means for eificting adjustmen of the parts of the cap to obtain a [it on the head of the wearer; the visor of the cap being provided with an adjustable head band for this purpose.

Vi ith the above and other objects in view, the invention consists, generally, in the arrangement and association of 1 arts hereinafter more fully referred to, and illustrated in the accompanying drawin wherein:

Figure 1 is a view of a complete cap as made up in accordance with the invention,

Figure 2 is a view in perspective of the removable visor; the same being illustrated without the head-covering, and

Figure 3 is a section thru the cap as take on line 33 of Figure 1 and illustrating the manner in which cap and visor portions interlace.

Throughout the several views of the drawing, 10 designates the body, or head-covering, part of a conventional cap and 11, the peak or visor which attaches to the brim 12 of the cap. In the invention, the visor constitutes a separate part and as shown in Fig. 1, is carried by a band 18 which, however, is open at one end to provide attaching straps indicated respectively at 14 and 14/.

When the visor is used without the head covering, as when performing the function of an eye-shade or a hair guard explained in my previous application, these straps serve to embrace the head for supporting the visor in place and fasten together at the back.

Any suitable fastening means may be employed for securing the ends of the straps 1923. Serial No. 635,842.

provided they allow for adjusting the straps to obtain more or less snug fit with respect to the head of the wearer. As shown, the end one strap may, for instance, be provided with a snap fastener 15 for engagement with any one of a series of complementary fasteners at the end of the other strap. The outside of the visor band 1?, is preferably cloth covered to match the cloth of the cap while on the inside it has a lining of leather other material suitable for a sweat band. As an article of headwear. the visor is thus complete in itself and capable of being put to a useful purpose independently of the head-covering 10 of the cap.

For the purpose of erlecting an interlacconnection between the headcov "11g 10 and the visor 11, however, as when it is desired i the cap as a whole, the brim re use 14; of the head-covering is provided with a .Jy of loops or tunnels 16 through which the straps of the visor are passed in such manner that the straps and the brim inter-lace shown in Fig. 1. For preimt purposes, the loops or tunnels of the brim are ill ated as having been produced by providing a number of openings, or slits, 17 at spaced points in the brim and extending around the same rearwardly of the forepart 18, to which the visor 11. is attached.

It will be observed that the forepart of the visor band 13 fits inside of the cap and against the forepart 18 of the brim with the peak projecting forwardly from beneath the brim. Snap fasteners 19 on the visor band engage complementary fasteners on the inside of the brim part 18 and serve to hold the visor firmly in position. The straps let and 14- are threaded or laced through the openings 17 on each side of the brim and pass alternately within and out of the cap, meeting at the bacr: of the latter where the ends of the straps are fastened together to hold the parts in place. l i hen fastener 15 is engaged with the outermost fastener 1 the straps are fully extended; however, by oil-- to the cap in a convenient and attractive manner. The fact that alternate portions of the straps are exposed through the brim adds to the attractiveness of the cap, to which it gives a sort or belted effect, as will be apparent from Fig. 1 of the drawing. This effect is one that is greatly desired, especially in connection with sport caps.

In addition to the particular form of the invention as herein disclosed, the invention contemplates all modifications and adaptations as properly fall within the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A visored cap includinga visor and a head covering separably connected and adapted for use independently or combined, the said visor having supporting straps threaded through openings in the head covering tor connecting true latter to the visor, which straps are adapted also to be secured about the head for supporting the visor the head covering, the said straps being relatively adjustable to vary the size of the cap.

8. A visored cap including a visor and a head covering detachably connected together and adapted for use either separately or combined, the said head covering consisting of a visorless cap complete in itself and the said visor having attaching straps threaded through openings formed in the brim of the head covering and detachably fastened together at the back of the latter, the said straps providing a head hand for securing the visor to the head when the latter is use( without the head covering.

4. A visored cap including a visor and a head covering separably connected and adapted for use independently or combined, the said visor having attaching straps for securing thevisor to the head of the wearer when used independently of the head covering and the said head covering having a series of openings through which the said straps are insertable as a means of joining the head covering and visor for conjoint use and complementary fastening elements at the free ends of the straps for securing the sane together.

A cap presenting a visorless head cov ering having a brim slit to pi'ovire a plurality of tunners, and a visor having attachinc" straps adapted to be threaded through the said tunnels of the brim for attaching, the said visor to the head covering, said straps providing means for attaching the visor to the head when used separate and apart from the said head covering.

In testimony whereof I atlix my signature.
