H. s. RAUH SPAT Filed Dec. 29, 1927 Patented Apr. 16, 1929.

-UNITED' STATES HERBERT S. RAUH, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

SEAT.

Application filed December 29, 1927. Serial No. 243,237.,

This invention relates to spats or overgaiters such as are commonly worn to cover the ankle and a' portion of the shoe, and the object of this invention is to produce a pa r of spats which will differ in no manner in appearance from those found on sale at this time, but which may be more quickly put on or taken ofi by the wearer with very much less trouble than the same operations call for at present. This object is attained by providing the spats on the inside with a hook less sliding fastening, the other side or outer side having the usual button and buttonholes fastenings.

In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of this invention is illustrated, but it is not intended to limit the invention narrowly to the particular forms set forth. Of the drawings Fig. 1 represents a view of the outer side of a spat showing the buttons and buttonholes fastenings. Fig. 2 is a like side view of the other or inner side of the spat showing the hookless fastening, its extent, and the manner in which it is covered by suitable edge construction to leave the inner surface throughout smooth and even.

Like numbers are used to refer to the same part in the drawings and description.

Considering the drawings, a spat 1 of any selected material, has the heel portion 2 and toe 3. It has a vertical division 4 at which the edges overlap in the usual manner, and which are secured by the buttons 5 and buttonholes 6. It is desired to call attention here to the fact that the buttons may be changed in position without much trouble to adjust'the size of the spats to the wearer.

The lower edge of the body portion 1 is provided with a strap 7 to pass under the shoe, and the strap is secured by the buckle 8 or its equivalent. The materials of which the body 1 is made up customarily show stitches'Q around the edges.

Fig. 2 illustrates the inner side of the spa and it has a division 10, secured by a hook less sliding fastening 11 of the usual construction. The particular construction of the hookless fastening forms no part of this invention. It will be noted in Fig. 2 that the hookless fastening continues downwardly into and for a part of the length of the strap 7. The strap is, therefore, correspondingly divided and the division, thereof secured by the hookless fastening. An especially desirable and advantageous feature of this invention is believed to be the construction of the edge portions 12 and 13, which are made to cover the hookless fastening and to meet on a line. It will be noted that the edges or edge portions 14 and 15 at the top of the division 10 are increased in extent to suitably receive and cover the slide 16 of the hookless fastening.

The operation is thought to be clearly discernible from the drawings and the foregoing. Moving slide 16 down opens the spat and strap and affords ample and convenient room to place the same on the foot. Once adjusted, the slide is pulled up and the spats are secured to the foot with obviously much less time and effort than would he demanded to unbutton and again button the outer division 1-..

Having now described this invention and its mode of use, I claim p 1. Spats or overgaiters comprising a body portion divided on opposite sides, one of the said divisions having buttons and buttonholes for securing the edges together, and the other division of the body portion having a hookless sliding fastening, the lower edge of the said body portion being provided with a strap to pass under the shoe, the said strap being provided with a buckle, and the said hookless fastening continuing downwardly into and for a part of the length of the said strap.

2. Spats or overgaiters comprising a body portion divided on'opposite sides, one of the said divisions having buttons and buttonholes for securing the edges together, and the other division of the body portion having a hookless sliding fastening, the lower edge of the said body portion being provided with a strap to pass under the shoe, the said strap having a buckle, and the last mentioned division of the body portion having edge portions constructed to lie externally over the said hookless fastening and to meet on a line whereby the externalsurface of the body of the spat is smooth and even.

3. Spats or overgaiters comprising a body portion divided on opposite sides, one of the said divisions having buttons and buttonholes for securing the edges together, and the other divisionof the body portion having a hooklesssliding fastening, the lower edge of the said body portion being provided with a strap to pass under the shoe, the said strap being provided with a buckle, the said hookless fastening continuing downwardly into and for a part of the length of the said strap, and the last mentioned division of the body portion having edge portions constructed to lie externally over the said hookless fastening and to meet on a line whereby the external surface of the body of the spat is smooth and even. J

4. Spats or overgaiters comprising a body portion divided on opposite sides, one of the said divisions having buttons and buttonholes for securing the edges together, and the other division of the body portion having a hookless sliding fastening, the said last mentioned division having edge portions constructed to lie over externally upon the said hookless fastening and to meet upon a line, and the upper portions of the said edge portions being extended in Width to receive and cover the slide of the said fastening whereby the external surface of the body of the spat is smooth and even.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.-
