` Application leol March 23, 1927. Serial No. 177,603.

This invention relates to a reenforced pocket structure and especially to a poclret of the type used by carpenters and mechanics for carrying nails, etc.

It is common practice at the present time to attach pocket to the bib or apron of caril penters overalls which serves thc purpose or receptacle for nails, etc. lt is also common practice to divide the pocket into a number of compartments for the reception of nails of differentsizes and it is furthermore cornmon practice to reenforce the pockets to pres vent puncturing of the tal ric and to prevent too rapid wear.

lo A reenforced pecl-:et of this character, briefly, consists of a section of'fabric form` ing the pocket proper. This fabric .is usually referred to as the lining. ng material is covered by an exterior sect ..1 of fabric which is sewed thereto an d this referred to as the roenforcing fabric.

The inner fabric or lining usually wears through fairly rapidly and the nails then begin to work in between the lining and the reenforcing fabric where they become lodged. Nails and other objects which become lodged in this manner are difficult to remove and are a source of nuisance and inconvenience.

The object of the present invention is to generally improve and simplify the construction and operation of p clrets of this character and particularly to attach the reenforcing fabric in such amaner that even though the lining fabric becomes punctured or orn through, neither nails nor other Objectis wnl be able to work through or become lodged between the linin(y and reenforcing fabric.

rlhe reenforced pocket is shown by way of illustration in the accompanying drawings,

in which:

Fig. 1 is a front view of the upper portion of a carpenters overalls, said view showing the attachment of the reenforced pocket,

Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross section of the reenforced pocket taken on line irl-il, Fig. 1.

For the purpose of illustration an ordinary carpenters overalls is shown in which A indicates the leg portions, B the upper or apron portion and C the straps or suspenders whereby the bib is supported with relation to the shoulders.V

The pocket structure forming the subject matter of the present application is generi ally indicated at D and is in this instance shown as two series of pockets, 2 and 3, cach of which may be divided into a number of compartments such as indicate( at 5, G and 7 to permit segregation and separation of nails of different sizes. The pockets are sewed or otherwse attached to the apron along the line indicated at o and while two sets of pockets are `here illustrated, the description of one pocket will suffice as they are both identical in construction.

The pocket is constructed as follows:

A. section of fabric such as canvas or the like is folded longitudinally as at 9 to form a bach section 10 and a front section 11. The ends of the fabric are then sewed together at the ends as indicated at 12 and an elongated pocket is thus formed in which the folded portion 9 forms the bottom. If it is desired to divide the pocket into a number' of coni` partinents, vert-ical stitching is employed as indicated at 13 and any number of compartments may in this manner be obtained. The bottom portion of a pocket of this character is usually subjected to the greatest wear and the only portion that requires reenforcing is accordingly the lower portion. The reenforcing material. may be any suitable fabric but usually a heavier grade of canvas or the like such as indicated at 15. This material is folded longitudinally upon itself to cover S5 the rear section 10 and the front section 11. rlhe front section of the reenforcing material is indicated at 15'and the rear section is shown at 15a. )The reenforcing material under ordinary conditions is usually stitched to the pocket along the upper edges 15, both atthe front and the rear and around the ends as indicated at 17. rhis manner of attaching the reenforcing material is not satisfactory as the inner fabric or lining' material gf soon wears through and the nails or other objects carried will then work in between the lining and the reenforcing material and will then become lodged as previously stated. To obviate this objectionable feature, the lining material is, in this instance, sewed horizontally at a number of points as indicated by the lines 18 and the reenforcing material and the diagonal stitching shown by the lines 19 and 2O producing a maze of intersecting lines of sewing, both horizontally and vertically and the stitching' is so close as to so unite the lining material and the reenforcing fabric that no space is left into which nails or other objects can Work. 11o

In fact, it is necessary that `the'lining material and the reenforcing fabric. become completely Worn through before nails or other objects can escape and if they then do Work through, they will fall to the ground.

While the reenforcingv material 'is here shown as being attached to nail pockets andthe like it is obvious that it may be attached Ito ordinary garmentfpockets andfthat it may have other uses.-
