MARQUIST, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOS RAINCOAT Application filed March 5, 1928.
The present invention relates generally to a raincoat and like garments and has for its prime object to provide a structure which is more comfortable than the ordinary raincoat now in common use.
Another important object of the present invention resides in the provision of a raincoat having a coat portion with a cape over the shoulder and upper portions thereof so as to eliminate the necessity of sleeves in the coat, thereby giving greater freedom to the arms and keeping the arms perfectly protected from the weather, so that the same may be used for carrying things or the like under the cape if so desired.
A still further very important object of the invention resides in the provision of a coat comprising a pair of back sections extending the full length of the coat, a pair of side sections, and a pair of cape sec-tions, secured along the same seam to the back sections as the side sections, and the securing of the cape sections and upper portions of the side sections and the back sections together as a unit, to a collar which turns down.
A still further very important object of the invention resides in the provision of a rain coat of this nature, which is simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture.. strong and durable, thoroughly efficient and reliable in use, and otherwise well adapted for the purpose for which it is designed.
lith the above and numerous other objects in view, as will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a front elevation of the raincoat embodying the features of my invention.
Figure 2, is a plan view, showing the inside of the raincoat.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary plan view, showing` the upper rear part of the raincoat.
Figure 4 is a vertical detail section, taken substantially on the line 1 4 of Figure 2.
Figure 5 is a plan view, showing fragmentarily one of the sides of the coat.
Serial No. 259,285.
Figure 6 is a side elevation of another embodiment of the coat.
Figure 7 is a plan view of the cape associated therewith.
Referring to the drawing in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention disclosed in Figures 1 to 5 inclusive, utilizes a pair of back sections 5, stitched together as at 6, for extending thel full length of the coat. A. pair of lower side sections 7 and upper side sections 8, are cut out for the provision of an arm hole as is indicated at 9 and 10 respectively. A pair of cape sections 11, are secured by stitching 12 to the upper portions of the side edges of the back section 5, which stitching 12 also secures the upper portion of the sections 7 and the hole of the sections 8 to the back sections 5. The armholes are provided with reinforcing hems 14. The upper edges of the back sections 5, the cape sections 11 and the side sections 8 are stitched to the collar l5v as at 16. This collar 15 is of the turn down type. One set of side sections 7 and S are provided with button holes 17 and the other sections are. provided with buttons 18. One free edge of one cape section has button holes 19 while the other has buttons 20, so that the coat may be securely buttoned as indicated to advantage in Figure 1 and the arms are free to pass through the arm holes, and may be utilized freely under the cape in considerable comfort. Pockets 21 of the patch type may be provided on the sections 7, but these are not necessarily of the essence of the invention.
In Figures 6 and 7 1 have shown another embodiment of the invention, wherein a coat portion is disclosed by the numeral 25 and is formed without sleeves and has its back open as indicated at 26, so that the arms may be placed therethrough. The numeral 27 de notes the cape which is secured all around the coat 25, being secured thereto by means of the same stitching as holds the collar 28 in place. The pattern of the cape is disclosed in Figure 7.
It is thought that the construction, utility and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to these skilled in this art, without a more detailed description thereof.
The present embodiment of the invention has been disclosed in detail, merely by way of example, since in actual practice, they attain the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention and the above description. It will be apparent that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacrificing any of its advantages.
It will also be understood that the material of the coat is preferably waterproof, but any suitable material may be used, as the kind of material is not of the essence ofthe invention. It will further be apparent that changes in the size may be made, as will undoubtedly be desirable.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
In a rain proof garment of the type described,'a pair of vertically oblong back sections stitched together along adjacent longitudinal sections, a pair of lower side sections,
a pair of cape sections, a pair of top side sections, said top side sections, said cape sections, and said side sections being stitched all together to the outer sides of the back section at the upper port-ion thereof, said stitching continuing down to secure the lower portions of the lower Yside sections to the remaining portions of the back sections, and a collar stitched to the top side sections and the top of the back sections, said top and bottom side sections being provided with arm holes adj acent the sides of the upper portions of the back sections, means for securing the free edges of the side sections together, and means for securing'the free edges of the cape sections together.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
