It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as Various changesmight be made in the embodiment above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be inter preted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

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

1. In a cap, the combination of a crown member, a band extending thereabout, said band being cut, and means including a hookless fastener to secure edge portions of said out for retaining the band in position on the crown member, a portion of said band being movable into desired predetermined position when said fastener is opened.

2. In a cap, the combination of a crown member, a separate band of uniform width formed of a tubular member and attached to extend completely around said member, said band being cut at the sides of the cap along lines extending from the central side ortion of the cap upward and forward to form front and rear band portions, the latter being unfoldable to engage the chin-of the wearer, and hookless fastener means for releasably securing together edge portions of said out.

3. In a cap, the'combination of a crown member, front and rear hand portions eX-- tending therealong, and locking means at the sides of the cap to secure 7 the band portions together including hoolrless fasteners disposed along lines beginning at the central side portions of the cap and sloping upward and forward.

4. In a cap, the combination of a crown member, a band formed of a knitted tubular member surrounding the crown member and cut to form front and rear band portions, and a'hookless fastener to join said band portions, the rear band being movable when the fastener is open to engage the chin of the wearer.

5. In a cap, the combination of a crown member, a band extending thereabout, the band being out to provide front and rear portions, the lower end of the out being spaced from the lower edge of the band to provide an integral connecting portion between said ban'd portions, and a hookless fastener for securing the band portions together including a slide having a stop positioned for concealment beneath said connecting portion.

6. In a cap, the combination of a crown "member, a band of tubular form extending snugly therearound, the band being cut to provide front and rear band portions, the lower end of the out being spaced from the lower edge of tegral connecting portion for the band portions, a narrow strip of material being removed along the cut to provide an opening, and a hookless fastener joining adjacent ends of the band portion for bridging said opening, said fastener having; a slider, a stop for said slider disposed in a concealed position under the connecting portion.

In a cap formed of knitted fabric, the combination of a crown member formed of two layers of material, band extending around the crown member formed'of a single layer of material, said band being cut at an angle to form front and rear portions, and a hoolcless fastener engaging adjacent edges of the band portions.

8. In a cap, the combination of a crown member, a band extending therealong', and means to lock the bandin position including a hookless fastener having a slide, and a button, said button and a portion of said band being movable to contact with the wearer s face when said fastener is released secured to the slide for manipulating the sliding movement thereof. I

9. In a knitted cap, the combination of a crown member, a band extending; therealong, and cut to form a band portion movable for engagement with the wearers chin, and a hookless fastener to secure the band portion in normal position against the crown memher, said fastener including tapes for securing said fastener to the band portions, said tapes extending beyond the fastener to form a binding for the edge'portions of the cut and I to serve as an ornamental trimming.

10. In a knitted cap, the combination of a crown member, a band extending normally the band to provide an in llii therealong and having a portion movable to rear band to cover the wearers chin, the engage the wearers chin, and a hooklessifa-shookless fastener having a slide member 10 tener including tapes to secure the fastener which in the latter position serves as an anto said band, said hookless fastener serving chorage to reinforce the band structure at F to support the band portion in its normal its junction with the cap.
