This front sec- 40 My improved garment is in the form of a union tion is composed of front pieces 26 each prefsuit and embodies a combined coat and trousers. erably formed from a single piece of cloth and, As seen in Figure 3. the basis to of the coat is as will he observed, said front pieces are or a preferably formed of a single piece of cloth while length to extend from the neck to the lower ends front pieces 11, each of a single piece of cloth, of the legs. The lower end portions of said front &5 are provided at the front of the coat. The front pieces are secured at their inner edges to the pieces 11 are secured to the back 10 along the inner edges of the back pieces 19 along the inupper edges of the tops of the shoulders and ner sides of the legs whence the confronting below the armholes of the garment and these edges or the pieces 26 are united by a seam 27 parts carry the sleeves 12 preferably equipped extending from the crotch to the upper ends of so with knit cuffs 13. A suitable neck opening is said pieces. The upper end of the front section provided and surrounding said opening is a collar of the garment thus provides the front portion 14 secured to the back 10 and front pieces 11. of the coat while the bifurcated lower end of the sewed to the exposed margins of the front pieces front section provides the front portions of the 11 at their upper ends are overlapping throat legs of the garment. Secured to the front sec- 555 flaps 15 one of which may be provided with a t'ion, adjacent the waist line, is a patch 28 di- 10? vided by a seam 29 to provide a pair of pockets.
At their lower ends, the legs carry preferably knitted cuffs 30 split at the outer sides of the legs in line with the outer free edges of the front section of the garment and it is now to be noted that these edges of said sections are curved longitudinally to mate with the confronting similarly curved edges of the body section of the garment, said confronting edges starting at the outer sides of the legs and thence extending upwardly on diagonal lines across the front of the garment to the neck, the front section of the garment being tapered towards its upper end. These confronting edges of the garment are preferably connected in Figure 2, however, the upper portions of the fastenings 31 may be released for any desired distance and thus free the upper portion of the front section of the garment to provide ventilation when so desired, without likelihood of the garment becoming displaced from the wearer.
Having thus described the invention, I claim: 1. A union suit embodying a combined coat and trousers split along lines diverging from the neck of the coat downwardly across the trouser legs to provide a body section and a mating front section, the body section being formed with a seat free at its upper end, fastenings normally securing the seat closed, a flap carried by the upper end of the seat and normally folded over said fastenings when the seat is closed, the flap being provided at its ends with ears, fastenings anchoring said ears and normally securing the flap folded, and means releasably connecting the free margins of said sections.
2. A union suit comprising a combined coat and trousers, the trousers being formed with a seat free at its upper end and the coat having its lower end overlapped by the upper end of the seat when the seat is in a raised position, fasteners carried by the lower portion of the back for engaging through the upper end portion of the seat to releasably hold the seat raised, a flap extending along the upper edge of the seat and adapted to be folded outwardly and downwardly against the seat to cover said fasteners, said flap having its end portions extending from sides of the seat when folded to form tabs, and means for releasably securing the tabs to the coat.
3. A union suit comprising a combined coat and trousers, said suit having sections spaced transversely at the front of the suit and defining a front opening extending the full length of the suit from the neck opening of the coat to lower ends of legs of the trousers, flaps extending toward each other from upper portions of spaced sections of the coat and adapted to be releasably secured in overlapping relation to each other to close the neck opening of the coat at the front and provide a chest shield, a front section for closing the front opening of the suit, and means for detachably securing side edges of the front section to side edges of said spaced portions of the suit for the full length thereof with the upper end portion of the front section overlying said flaps and terminating at the neck opening when secured.
