Application filed February ment in the nature ofa pairof-overalls in an' expeditious manner with very little effort on the part of the wearer and while the garment is being worn. =1 i y A further objectgof the invention is to provide a garment especially designed for automobilists, for emergency repair work. therefore the garment is designed to amply protect the clothing of the wearer and is of simple nature so that it will be inexpensive to manufacture and that can be easily put on and taken off without fear or danger of soiling the outer clothing of the wearer.
Another object of the invention is to provide an outer garment that canbe worn as a coat or in the form of a pair of overalls, and whenworn as a coat, the portion of the garment that cooperates with the coat portion to 2 convert the same to overalls is completely concealed from view, so that the gari'nent when worn as a coat presents a neat and dressy appearance and will give the effect of.
an ordinary coat or duster usually worn by motorists.
This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combina tion and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings andspecifically pointed out in the appended claim. g
In describing my invention in detail, ref erence will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several Views; and in which:
