1 FRLDMAN BOW TIE Filed Ap'ril 21, 1927 J ill/70 ATToRNE Patented Feb. '7, 1928.

Bow sin.

Application iled April `21, 1927. Serial No. 185,475;

This invention relates generally to ties, and has more particular reference to bow ties, and to a process for manufacturing the same.

The invention has for an object the provision of a bow tie of novel construction, and a process for making the saine, which can be cheaply applied so that the tie may be sold at a reasonable cost. and which will eliminate the necessity of stitching.

The invention has for a further object, the provision of a bow tie of durable structure, which will retain the shape in which 1t is placed.

, For further comprehension of the invention and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing and to the appended claims in which Ythe various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

Referring to the accompanying drawing, forming a material part of this disclosure:

Fig. l is a face view of a bow tie constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a plan view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary rear `view of casing material, used in the making of 'the tie, one layer thereof being bent outwards, disclosing the interior construction.

Fig. e is a sectional view, taken on the line 4-4 of Fig. 3.

j Fig. 5 is a face view of two pieces cnt 4from the strip shown in Fig. 3. j

Fig. shows the pieces o Fig. with their endsbent so as to be adjacent each other, at the center of the pieces.

Fig. 7 is a rear view of the pieces shown in Fig. 6. A

Fig. 8 is a view similar to Fig. 7 but showing additional steps in the process of manufacture.

Fig. 9 shows the pieces of Fig. 8 turnedy inside-out.

Fig. 10 shows the pieces of Fig. 9 on each other, and banded to form the bow tie.

The reference numeral 10 indicates the front bow member, and 11 the rear bow member of a bow tie, having a band 12 holding the front and rear members together, and a strap for faste-ning the bow tie to a wearers collar, said strap consisting of an elastic portion 13 secured to the band 12, and

provided with an eyelet 14, and a main portion 15 provided with an adjustment arrangement 16 with hook 17 for engagement shown in Fi g. o.

with eyelet 14. A feature of thebow tie that the front and rear members will re-' tain the position theyfinay be placed in, as

for example referringto Fig. 2, the front member 10 has its sides bent outwardly as indicated4 at 1S, and therear member 11 has its sides curved slight-ly backwards as indicated at 19.

VThis casing strip of material has a silk" outer member 20 with its edges 2l bent over the edges of an inner lining 22, and a rubberized tape 23 engages the rear of the inner lining .22, and the edges 21. This casing strip of material is chopped into pieces as Small cuts are then formed in the centers of the longitudinal edges thereof, the transverse edges 24- and 25 are bent so as to be adjacent in the center of the pieces, shown inFig. 6, and the small cuts 26 necessarily align, behind the joints 24, 25, as shown in Fig. 7. Small wire staples 27 in inclined positions and on each side of the cuts 26 are completely passed through the pieces, and large wire staples 28 in inclined positions and at the ends of the pieces are also completely passed through the pieces. The pieces are next turned inside out through the joints 24, 25, the staples 28 acting to form thepoints 29 and staples 27, the curvature 30 as shown in Fig. 9, and Fig. 10 shows these piecesV on top of each other and held together by band l2. The staples 27 being stiff, and not bendable as stitches, act positively and firmly to maintain the curvature 30, while similar staples Y 28 act to maintain points 29. f

While I have illustrated and described the preferred form, construction and arrangement of the several elements employed, `it will be understood that the device is, nevertheless, susceptible of considerable modification therein, and I` therefore reserve the right and privilege of resorting to all such changes Vas may be fairly embodied within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as fnew and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:


l. A process for manufacturing bow'ties,

consisting of cutting a casing strip of mate-` rial into pieces, forming small cuts in the centers or' the longitudinal edffes or tlie pieces, bending the transverse edges of the i pieces so as to be adjacent the centers of the 2. A process for manufacturing bow ties,

consisting of cutting a casing strip of material. into pieces, forming small cutsin the centers of the longitudinal ed es of the pieces, bending `the transverse e ges of the pieces so as to be adjacent the centers of the pieces, applying small Wire staples on each side of tlie cuts, and in inclined positions, turning the `piecesginside out through the joint of said sides, and combining a plurality of sncli pieces to form the front and rear members oit a bow tie. w t i In testimony whereof I have ailixed my signature. i
