EDMUND R. GOLDBERG, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO GOSHEN SHIRT MANU- FACTURING COMPANY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, A CORPORATION OF MICHIGAN.
Application filed July 23,
The purpose of this invention is to provide an improved construction for an attached shirt collar whereby the collar is adaptable to be worn outside the neck band when in service, and to be turned inside the neck band when desired, to permit of the attachment of a removable collar inthe usual manner. The invention consists in certain features and elements of construction as herein shown and described, and as indicated by the claims.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing the upper portion of a shirt with a collar applied thereto, embodying this invention and showing the collar turned out in position for use.
Figure 2 is a perspective view with parts broken away, showing the structure of Fig ure 1, but with the collar turned inside the neck band, out of. service.
Figure 3 is a detail section taken as inclicated at line 3-3 on Figure 1.
Figure 4 is a detail section taken as indicated at line 44 on Figure 2.
In the structure shown in the drawings the upper portion of the shirt body is indicated at 1, and the neck band is shown at 2, attached in the usual manner. The soft, or roll, collar, 3, consists of an outer ply, 3, and an inner ply, 3 as shown in Figure 3. One or more layers of stiffening material may be included between the inner and outer plies of the collar, if desired. At the lower or free edges, the plies are turned in to form the usual finished hem construction, but to avoid unnecessary thickness, the upper edges of the plies, 3 and 3 are secured together by over-casting, as indicated at 5, in Figure 2. The collar member, 3, thus assembled, is attached to the inner face of the neck band, 2, near its upper edge, by a line of stitching indicated at 6, so that when the collar is turned inside the neck band, as shown in Figure 2, it lies flatly in position.
To place the collar in service it is only necessary to turn it outwardly and fold it downwardly over the neck band, 2, forming a soft rolled edge at 3, above the upper edge of the neck band. The neck band itself consists of at least two plies, 2 and 2", between which any desired stiffening material may 1926. Serial No. 124,337.
be inserted in a well understood manner. The neck band, 2, thus has sufficient stiffness to support the collar member, 3, in its posi tion of use, as in Figure 1.
It may he noted that the outer ply, 3 of the collar, is folded against the inner surface of the neck band, 2, and shirt body, 1, when out of service, so that if a detachable collar is first worn on the neck band, the soft collar, 3, is kept in reasonably clean condition while worn inside the shirt, so as to be ready for use when the detachable collar is discarded.
I claim 1. In a shirt provided with an upstanding neck band, a multiple ply collar, having its upper margin reinforced by over-cast stitches, and having said margin stitched to the inner face of the neck band through the reinforced margin thereof, said dimensioned to be rolled over the upper edge of the neck band and to extend outside of the latter in position for service.
2. In a shirt provided with an upstanding neck band, a multiple ply collar, having its P upper margin reinforced by overcaststitches,
collar being F said collar being stitched to the inner face i of the neck band adjacent the upper edge thereof, said stitching passing through the reinforced margin of the collar approximate- 1y centrally thereof, whereby to form a reinforced pliable hinge connection between the collar and neck band so that said collar may be rolled over the upper edge of the neck band in position for wear or may depend freely from the hinged connection, lying flatly against the inside of the neck band when out of use.
3. In a shirt provided with an upstanding neckband, a multi-ply reversible collar having one of its exposed edges finished and reinforced byovercast stitches whereby to provide a strengthened margin of substantially the same thickness as the body of the collar, said collar being permanently secured to the neckband of the shirt by stitches passing through the overcast marginal edge portion whereby to provide a reinforced hinged connection to resist wear and strain incident to reversing the collar.
