My invention relates to acollar, and particularly to a collar with stiffening means at the front edges.
It is the principal object of the invention to provide a collar having improved stiffening'means along the front edges, arranged and embodied so as to be readily and cheaply manufactured, neat in appearanceand serviceable in use. a I V Other minor objects and features of the invention will appear as the specification pro ceeds. p r
' In the drawings, which show for illustrative purposes only, preferred forms of the in- Fig. 1 is a front view of a collar,-one-corner being turned up to illustrate features atthe rear of such corner; 7
Fig. 2 is a somewhat diagrammatic view of parts of a collar before being stitched;
Fig. 3 is a view of the parts shown in Fig. 2 and partially stitched together; 7
Fig. 1 is a sectionalview taken substantially in the plane of the line 44 of Fig. 3;
Fig. 5 is a view similar to Fig. 4: but illustrating a slight modification.
The construction and features of invention may perhaps best be described in connection with a description of the preferred method of manufacture. I
In the drawings, 6 indicates 3.11'1111181 ply,
7 while 7 indicates an outer ply of a collar. These plies as is usual in collar manufacture are arranged with the wrong side of the goods outwardly. If desired, a ply of interlining 8 may be interposed between the plies 6'-7. Another ply which for convenience I term a pocket ply 9 is interposed between the plies 6-7. In the form shown the pocket ply is formedof one thickness of goods folded upon itself (with the right side of the goods outwardly) and with the edges lyingsubstantially along the edges of the front of the plies '67. The top edges of the pocket'ply may line 11 so as to leave a finished edge 10 at the top.
All of the plies'shown in Fig. 2 may then be folded inwardly as indicated by the dotted V art-112;] The .1 am also stit hed along the b'ottom' edge; The stitchedtogether collar construction is.v tlienfolded back so that'thef'. seam 12 will comeat the extreme, front edge ofthe co-llar and the fold of theply 9 will.
extend outwardlyas partially indicated at 13 in Fig. 3. The ply 9 is then folded back along- =thefrear s'ide fo'f the rear ply 6 and is then stitched to "the remaining plies as indicated at l lso as to leave a pocket l5'extending'well up toward the mp of the collar: asindicated more particularly at 16inFig. 1. The open" pocket 15 may thenr'e'ceive a sti ffening member such a celluloid strip 17: so that the front 7 corners oftliecolla r will be held straight and .65 willfn otcu'rl'up, The pocket ply is preferably madeofthe same goods as that oft-lie collar especially when colored or figured fabrics'ale empioyed; By'means 'of'my improved con struction: no additional seams are required To and'thelabor' andinaterial costs in the manufactu re of collar are only trivially in-' creasedfover the'cost of corresponding collars y' p' ov d pocket construction. i I
fIn that form of the inventionshown inFig. 5 substantially the same construction is em-.' ployed and-the method of manufacture is substantially the same as that heretofore described, except that instead of employing-a separate stiffener 17 which may be removed I employ one or more plies such as stifi interlining material as indicated at 18 and preferably enclosed within a double thickness ply 9, which by analogy may be termed a pocket ply. Theconstruction shown in Fig.
5 with a proper grade of stifi material will be substantially non-curling-and. a collar so made will be found to be satisfactory in use. While the invention has been described'in considerable detail anda preferred-form illustrated I do not wish to be strictly limited to theivarious details specifically disclosed, 7
since obviously some changes may be made within the scope of the invention as defined in the appendedclaims. Iclaimz; j V 1.
