March'3l, 1931. PORGES COMBINATION STOCKING AND LABEL Filed Jan. 8, 1921 VENTOR.

ATTORNEY Patented Mar. 31, 1931 UNITED STATES GEORGE M. POBGES, OF ORANGE, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGN'OR KAUMAGRAPH COMPANY,

OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION 01E NEW YORK COMBINATION STOCKING AND LABEL 7 Application filed January 8, 1931. Serial No. 507,347.

My invention relates to a new and improved combination stocking and label.

One of the objects of my invention is to provide a combination stocking and label so that the label is held in place on the inner surface of the stocking, so that the use of adhesive or the like can be eliminated.

Another object of my invention is to provide a label of improved form, which can be applied to, and which can be removably held upon, the inner surface of the stocking.

Other objects of my invention will be set forth in the following description and drawings which illustrate a preferred embodiment thereof, it being understood that the above general statement of the objects of my invention is intendedmerely to generally explain the same and not to limit it in any manner.

Fig. 1 is an elevation showing how the improved label is applied and held.

Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an elevation showing the nap or adherent surface of the label.

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the label.

It has been known for many years to afiix a label to the outer surface of a stocking, by means of an adhesive. This is often objeo tionable, especially if the stocking is a fine silk stocking, because the moist adhesive affects the dye.

According to my invention the use of an adhesive is eliminated. For this purpose I use a label 1 which is preferably woven of some suitable material, and which preferably has a nap surface 2, although the invention is not to be restricted to the use of a label having a nap surface.

The label 1 is preferably made of the material which is known in the trade as cotton glove material. In order to illustrate the specific structure of the label, it may be made from 150-single cotton, having a twist of from -32 turns per inch.

The use of a thin cloth label which is soft or non-rigid is desirable because this label is substantially invisible when it is in position, and such a label does not impart any objectionable bulge at the welt of the stocking, and it permits the stocking to be packed in abox in the ordinary manner. Likewise, the use of a soft label prevents any injury to the stocking, due to handling or the like.

For convenience, it may be assumed that when a'stocking is in the fiat condition shown in Fig. 2, in which condition it is packed and shipped, that the stocking consists of two layers having adjacent inner surfaces, between which-the label 1 is located. The two layers of the stocking can be forced against each other and against the label which is located betweenthem, by means of pressure, or by means of a blow. This can be done by the hand of the operator, or by means of a suit able roller 01' flat tool.

Since the inner walls of the stocking are thus pressed against the opposite faces of the label 1, the label 1 is caused to adhere to said inner walls, with suificient firmness. The nap surface engages the loops of the knit stocking, so that a sufficiently effective hold is secured, although the label can be readily detached.

When the label is detached, the trademark can be observed. If the stocking is sheer, the trademark which is printed upon the label can also be observed, without the necessity of detaching the label.

I have shown a preferred embodiment of my invention, but it is clear that numerous changes and omissions can be made without departing from its spirit.

1. A stockin having a soft cloth label located between tlie inner surfaces thereof, said inner surfaces being pressed against the corresponding adjacent faces of the label, so that the label is detachably held in position, said label being sufficiently thin so that it imparts substantially no bulge to the stocking.

3. A stocking having a soft cloth label located between the inner surfaces thereof, said inner surfaces being pressed against the cor responding adjacent faces of the label, so that the label is detachably held in position, one of said faces having a nap surface, said label being sufficiently thin so that it imparts substantially no bulge to the stocking.

3. A stocking having a soft cloth label located between the inner surfaces thereof and in contact therewith, said label adhering to said stocking by the natural adherence of its material, said label being sufliciently thin so that it imparts substantially no bulge to the stocking. 33 In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

GEORGE M. PORGES.
