Application filed March 8, 1922. Serial No. 542,004.
This invention has relation to wearing apparel, and has for an object to provide an article in the nature of a protective means for the chest which is intended to be carried ordinarily in the pocket but adapted for attachment to fastening devices permanently secured to the inside of a coat or other garment to afford protection during inclement weather. 1
In addition to the foregoing this invention comprehends improvements in the details of construction and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter described and particularly set forth in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawings in which similar and corresponding parts are designating in the square cut end 12. The edges 11 at the opposite end of the device merge into the parallel sides 13, and at the termi nation of said edges the material is cut with the edges let which converge in a direction opposite to the edges 11 and more abruptly. The large end of the device is then formed with a semi-circular recess 15 to receive the neck of the wearer. The device is preferably formed of two layers of fabric 16 and 17 stitched to their edges with rows of blind stitches to bring the seams upon the. interior whichis filled with a suitable padding 1.8. At each corner of the wide ends of the device there is provided fastening means con sisting of penetrative portions of a two part snap fastener of conventional type. Two of these penetrative elements are used at each corner, one at each side of the device as indicated at 19. Two strips of fabric 20 are employed and stitched to the inner side of a coat or other garment and to the free end of each strip there is secured a receptive member of the snap fastener asshown at 21.
fasteners 21 of the, strip. This will position the device over the chest of the wearer and when the coatis buttoned will be securely held in place. When the use for the device is at an end it may be'detached and folded for reception in the pocket for a future occasion.
Thus it will be seen that I have provided a novel garment that will be instrumental in the prevention of illness due to exposure and which can be made very ornamental if desired and thus constitute an attractive adjunct to the dress.
WVhile I have illustrated and described my invention with some degree of particularity, I realize that in practice various alterations therein may be made. I therefore reserve the right and privilege of changing the form of the details ofconstruction or otherwise altering the arrangement of the correlated parts without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what A the fasteners at their freecends, and a substantially V- shaped chest protector comprising two layers of fabric with a padding therebetween, said chest protector carrying snap fastener elements at its upper corners adapted to engage the snap fastener elements on said coat tabs, whereby the chest protector is detach-.
ably secured in the coat.
In testimony whe'reof'I atfix my signature.
