GLOVE AND METHOD or manorno'runme SAME.
Application filed October 21, 1925. Serial N0. 63,808.
This invention relates to gloves, andparticularly to an improved glove and the method of making the same. Gloves as ordinarily manufactured require the cutting or stamping out of several pieces of maternal to form different portions of the glove-and the folding and sewing together of these ieces. As thus formed these gloves ordinari y embody a great number of seams and certain of such seams usually are located very objectionably on the glove. It is the primary object of my invention to manufacture an improved glove by stamping out a minimum number of pieces so shaped that the same can be very easily folded and sewed together to form an improved glove in which the main seams thereof are located on the back or non-wearing portions of the glove.
More specifically it is an object of my invention to provide an improved glove by cutting from flat material a palm portion, finger and thumb portions, and a back portion. and folding and sewing such portions together to form the glove. 1
With these and other objects in view, as will hereinafter appear, my invention consists in the improved glove and the method of making the same as illustrated in the accompanying drawing and described in this specification. It will, however, be understood that the drawing is not to be construed as defining or limiting the scope of the invention, the claims. appended to the specification being relied upon for that purose. p Referring to the figures of the drawing,
Fig. 1 illustrates the palm piece or cutting of my improved glove.
Fig. 2 illustrates the back or backing piece of the glove.
Fig. 3 illustrates one of the tips shown in Fig. 2. Fig. 4 illustrates the thumb-forming piece. Fig. 5 illustrates the piece for formlng the two middle fingers of the glove.
Fig. 6 illustrates the piece of Fig. 5 folded ready for attaching to the palm portion.
Fig. 7 illustrates the thumb portion sewed up ready to be attached to the glove.
Fig. 8 is a rear view of the glove before the backing portion is sewed thereto. 5 Fig. 9 is a front or palm view of the finished glove.
In the drawing, 1 indicates the front or palm cutting of the glove, 2 the back cutting having the tips 3 sewed thereto, 4 the thumb cutting and 5 the cuttin for forming the two middle fingers of the g ove. It will be understood that'these pieces are formed vide a pair of flaps 7 and 8 to co-operate with the flaps 9 and 10 to form the two outside fingers of the glove. The firstassembling operation comprises the folding of piece 1 on lines 11 and 12 and sewing the flaps 7 and 9 at 13 and flaps 8 and 10 at 14 to form these two outside fingers.
The piece 5 is severed at 15. This piece is folded on the line 16 as indicated in Fig. 6 and the edges formed by the cut 15 are sewed at 17 to the body portion of the piece 1 along the edge formed by the cut 6 and to the flaps 7 and 8 at 18 and 19.
As thus attached these.
middle fingers are open at the back as illustratedin Fig. 8.
The thumb piece 4 is folded on the line 20 and the edges are sewed together at 21. The thumb is thereafter sewed to the edges of the piece 1' within the opening 22. Fig. 8 illustrates the glove as thus far constructed.
The backing 2 for the glove is preferably formed of fibrous material and the leather tips 3 are sewed thereon at 23. This backing is thereafter sewed to the edges 24 of the glove illustrated in Fig. 8, the leather pieces 3 reinforcing the backs of the middle fingers. Y
It will be seen that by my invention a glove is produced of but four main pieces or cuttings. The palm and two outer fingers of the glove are formed of a single piece of material which extends around to the back of the glove, whereby the seam between the front and back pieces is entirely at the back of the glove,- thus leaving the palm and edges of the glove smooth and seamless.
Also the working portion of the middle fingers formed from the piece 5 is smooth andseamless. My improved glove is superior and advantageous in these and many other respects and the method of manufacturing the same is exceedingly simple, and lessdexpensive than the methods heretofore use The present construction provides a work glove which can be made inexpensively, and
yet strong and durable. Thevpa'rts receiving wear are of leather, and so cut as to avoid waste and to bring the seams into position where little or no Wear occurs. The back part is preferably of canvas or similar cloth, thus reducing the cost and making a lighter glove. By extending this cloth strip into the top portion of the two middle fingers, less leather is required, and no impairment of the wearing qualities of the glove results. At the top of the two middle fingers, where they might be subject to some wear, separate leather pieces are used, and these being small, it is possible to make use of scrap material.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as-new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: I
1. A glove comprising a palm and side portions of leather, having two outside ngers integral therewith, and a slot for a thumb piece formed therein, another leather portion formed of a single piece of material sewed to the palm portion and forming the front portion of the two middle fingers, a
thumb portion also of leather, sewed into tubular form and sewed to the palm portion over said slot, and a back piece of cloth sewed to the first-named leather portion and to the two middle fingers, the seams thereof falling at the back of the glove, and the said back piece serving also to cover the backs of the two middle fingers.
2. A glove comprising a palm and side portions of leather, having two outside fingers integral therewith, and a slot for a thumb piece formed therein, another leather portion formed of a single piece of material sewed to the palm portion and forming the front portion of the two middle fingers, a thumb portion also of leather, sewed into tubular form and sewed to the palm portion over said slot, a back piece of cloth, sewed to the first-named leather portion and to the two middle fingers, the seams thereof falling at the back of the glove, and the said back piece serving also to cover the backs of the two middle fingers, and separate ieces of leather reinforcing the tips of the backs of the two middle fingers.
