This invention relates to faced gloves.

Referring to the drawing:

Fig. 1 shows a glove front view,having an embodiment of the invention herein disclosed;

Fig. 7 is a view of the thumb backblank;

Fig. 8 is a view of the intermediate finger front blank; and

Fig. 9 is a view of the palmportion blank and digit portions assembled therewith.

Palm 1 is shown as having thumb inside portion 2, intermediate parallel sides 3, 4, of the palm extending to wristward terminus 5. From this palm portion 1 is index finger complete, having back 6, front 7'and innerside 8 extending to line 9, parallel to the wristward portion 5, spacing this index finger complete blank portion from little finger innerside 10 and front 11. Second finger side portion 12 has seamless connection 13 with intermediate or third finger side portion 14:. The portion 12 has front 15, and portion 1a has front 16 spaced by line 17. Little finger back 18 has wristward extension 19. Intermediate finger back unit is provided withsecond finger back 20, third finger back 21 extending past the crotch region therefor by portion 22 to half back terminus 23 short of or approximating the region of crotch 24: of the thumb.

The thumb inner side 2 is completed by thumb back 25 extending to wristward terminus 26 approximating the wristward portion 5 of the palm 1 and wristward terminus 27 of the little finger back 18, 19, and wristward terminus 28 of hand back 29 proper, which has the knuckle covering 22 overlap the upper half thereof in the region of the finger crotch. From the wristward portions 5, 26, 27, 28, there is extended gauntlet 30.

Stitching 31 assembles the thumb back 25 with the thumb 2. Stitching 32 assembles the little finger back 18, 19, to the palm with a portion of the intermediate finger back as to the knuckle covering portion 22. Stitching 33 about the intermediate fingers coacts at the finger crotches with back 29 at notches or ledges 34 in locating this back 29 against drawing in the assembled glove. Notches 35 at the back 29 serve as locating means for stitching 36 at the back portion 22. Notches 37 in the hand back portion 29 serve to locate elastic 38 in holding the glove in snugly against slipping from the hand. Notch 39 shows crotch location, while notches 40 on the digit termini serve as finger tip locating means in the stitching assembly.

The glove, as herein disclosed, has a fullness'for comfort in the hand with economy in cutting and flexibility in use. There is the two-ply protection for the knuckles where the half back 22 overlaps the back 29. In practice the portions 29, 30, may be fabric and the other portions of facing material, such as leather. The fabric may be canvas or cotton flannel as to the back 29, while of a form holding material for the gauntlet 30.
