Fig. 8 is a horizontal sectional view, taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. Referring to the drawings in detail, this article of wearing apparel is made of felt or any suitable material as used for this purpose. In Fig. 1, of the drawing, I have shown a hat of a design suitable for men and boys, depending upon the size thereof, the most suitablematerial is felt of the variety as used in'mens felt hats. The article is not necessarily limited to the design shown in said Fig. 1, but may be of any suitable perforated or stencil design.

In Fig. 2 I have shown a similar article of wearing apparel to that shown in said Fig. 1, but it is of a different design and applied to wearer 5. This article of wearing apparel may be of all sizes as regularly required for men and boys. The brim 0r rim 9 is turned outward and upwards as hereinbefore described for said article of wearing apparel as shown in said Fig. 1." Y I I Fig. 3 represents an article of wearing apparelsuitable for ladiesand girls house or boudoir wear, this particular article may be made of lace or any 'suitablematerial as used in articles of this kind and-for thisparticular purpose, and in such sizes as regularly" manufactured for. ladies and girls house or boudoir wear. In the device shownin said F 1g. 3, I have shown a ribbon 7 or band,

which may be of any suitable size andwidtln,

and of any suitable material, said ribbon be 1ngst tched or sewn'at its top edge 6 and bottom edge 14 to'the rim of the article.

' The bow'8 and streamers 19 need. not necessarily be applied. The brim or y rim'. 15

all sizes and designs, although of suitable decorative requirements.

The adjusting means 10 consists of a pair of arms 20 pivoted to each other at thelr top ends, and formed with slightly bent-in bottom ends;- v The materials of the hats at their lower edges are formed with inverted V-shaped cutouts 21. The arms are attached to the edges of the cutouts by means of glue or stitches, so that the points of pivot of the arms are disposed in the apexes'of the V cutouts. Elastic straps. 22 are attached at i I their ends to opposite sides of the cutouts 21 and act to normally close these openings. Wedge shapedmembers 28] are engaged between the arms20 and normally hold the V-cutouts open. The hat may adjusted to at smaller size by-manually removing the wedges 23, so that the elastlcs close the cutouts. The members 28 and arms 20 engage each other by means-of tongue and groove constructions 24-.

While I have shown and described a preferred embodiment of'my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise construction herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changesand modifications coming within the scope of the invention'as defined in the appended claims.
