POCKET FOR GARMNTS.
Application filed June S,
This invention relates to pockets tor garments and has tor an object to provide an in'iproved construction which may be applied to wearing apparel ot any kind and caused to function in the same manner regardless oi the garment on which it is applied.
r'tnother objectot the invention is to provide a pocket structure in which the parts are ro arranged 'that coins in the pocket cannot readily move out ot the pocket even vfhen the saine is inverted.
A still further object ot the invention, more specifically, is to prov'de a pocket 'for pleasingin appearance and which may be made in dillerent sizes and caused to function in the same manner regardless ot size.
1n the accompanying drawing- Figure 1 shows a pocket embodying the invention, the same being shown tor the purpoe of illustration as applied to gloves.
Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view through Figure 1 on line 22.
Figure 3 is an elevation ot a pocket showing a dilt'erent form o t the invention 'from that illustrated in Figure 1, the same being illustrated on a glove.
1n manufacturing the pocket embodying the invention, the same may be applied to garments et any kind and may be arranged at any desired point on any garment. For the purpose ot illustration, the same has been shown as applied to gloves in the accompanying drawing. Referring to the drawing by numerals, 1 indicates a glove ot any desired kind which is provided with a poc ret- 2 mounted on the back. It is evident that the pocket could be mounted at :Toine other point Without departing from the spirit of the invention.
1n 'toi-ming the pocket 2 the same is prou vided With a body-3 vvhich is round except at the top where it is preferably 'formed v-:ith a straight section l. The body 3 is held in place by a suitable line of stitching 5 and at a point spaced from the top and bottom is provided With an opening 6. This opening is normally covered by a flap 7 which is preferably arc-shaped and preterably held in place by a line ot stitching 8 1926. Serial No. 113,528.
extending through the body 3 and the flap 7. This flap covers the opening` and prevents to a certain extent any contents from passing through opening 6 as Well as presents a structure having a pleasing appearance. By reason of the spacing of the opening 6 from the top and bottom andl also from the sides, said opening will readily permit articles to be placed in the pocket but Will prevent articles trom being accidentally moved therefrom. In case a coin was placed in the pocket and the pocket was inverted, the coin would pass by the opening 6 and stop when engaging` the line ot stitching at the edge 4:. When the pocket Was again moved to a correct upright position the coin would merely slide back tok its tormer position at the bottom ot the pocket. Though a coin or other article cannot iccidentally pass through the opening a person may readily move the article through the opening.
In Figure 3 a slightly modified construction of pocket is shown wherein body 3 is formed many sided, namely, Octagon shape and is provided vvith an arc-shaped flap 7 and this iiap can be ot' some other shape if desired.
flint I claim is:
1. A pocket for a garment comprising a body superimposed on the garment and having an entrance opening spaced from the top, bottom and sides, and a flexible covering flap connected to Vthe body immediately above the opening, said flap being spaced from the edges of the body and normally overlapping the Opening.
2. The combination with a garment, of a pocket therefor formed with a body consisting of a single sheet of material having an opening spaced from the top, bottom and sides, a line oit' stitching around the edge of the sheet of material extending through said sheet and through part of the garment ior connecting the sheet to the garment, and a flapv normally covering said opening, said flap being connected to the sheet near one edge oi' the opening and spaced from the edges of said sheet.
