HUG-O 1312211113, or enossrnennsnmivr,GERMANY snm'r COLLAR Application filed August 23, 1927, SerialNo. 214,882, 51min Germany June 30, 1927..

T he invention relates to shirt collars. Socaslled turn-down and double shirt collars, when starched, are liable to the defect that it is difficult to slip the neck-tie between the body of the collar and the flap, owing to the outer and inner portions having been pressed too" tightly together by the ironingand subsequent rounding or shaping process. 1

According to my invention the collar is provided, preferably on the inside, with a mark, which may be in the form of a full or dotted line or a seam or the like, so posi-. tion'ed that if the ironer spreads or pulls thev collar so that this mark forms a. straight line in the course of'ironing'the fold ofthe collar assumes just that bend which is required so that when thecollaris given its proper curvature there willbe a convenient clearance between the inside and outside portions.

j The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in [which a F ig. 1 shows the collar spread out. Fig.2is a section showing the folds of the collar in the position assumed after having been ironed, in accordance with the present invention; 1 a I I a The collar, according to my invention, comprises a neckband a and outer or body'portion Z) and has'on said portion a a mark in the form of a line or sealnd. Before ironing the collar the laundry operative spreads it so that this line is qultestralght, usln.

if required, and the fold Q then acquires ust a ruler the right curvature.

-I inay'print the mark, or provide it in any,

other convenient manner, but prefer to use a seam, because this is visible on both sides,

and is conspicuous if colored, non-fading" thread is used. 1 V p I Figure 2 shows. a starchedcollar wh ch has been ironed with the aid of the guiding signature.

substantially the length ofthe collar and longitudinally thereof, said mark being fernr able into a straight line before the collar is ironed to indicate the proper position in which the'portionsof the collar are to bc ironed in. order to provide a spacebetween said portions, after the folding thereof, through which anecktie is easily slidable.

A turn-down starched collar including I a body port1on,'-a neckband portion, ands mark on said neck band portion visiblefroin both sides thereof and extending substantiaL ly the length of the collar and longitudinally thereof, said inark being forniable into a straight line before the collar is ironed to ironed with said mark held in a straight line and sa d portions have been folded on said folding line, a space will be formed between saidportions through which a necktie is easily slidable.

In testimony whereof I have afiixed my H GO BEVZNER.
