May 7, 1935. N. I. FLEISCHER PROTECTIVE COVER FOR GARMENTS Filed Oct. 15, 1932 Patented May 7, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE I. Fleischer & Sons, composed of Nathan Fleischer Cincinnati, Ohio, at firm I. Fleischer and Jacob I.

Application October 15, 1932, Serial No. 637,963

1 Claim.

My invention relates to protective covers for garments of the type used to cover the upperportions of garments when suspended on hangers, particularly when the same are on display in a store room for sale.

The principal object of my present invention is to provide improvements over the garment protector described and claimed in my application for Letters Patent of the United States filed July 21, 1931, Serial No. 552,160, which application has resulted in LettersPatent No. 1,879,739 and bears date of September 27, 1932.

The garment protector as set forth in said application consists of a main body composed of sheets of Cellophane or other transparent material bound and assembled by means of adhesive tapes secured to the edges of the Cellophane. In the present construction means are provided whereby the adhesive portions of the tape along the inside of the body seams of the protector, are prevented from contacting with the garment, thus overcoming the tendency of the cover to adhere to the garment, and obviating all possibility of the latter becoming soiled by such adhesion.

A further object of my invention is to provide increased strength along the seams of the cover thus greatly increasing its durability and overcoming all possible tendency of the cover to tear or to become ruptured at the seams.

Further objects of my invention will appear from the following detailed description thereof:

In the drawing:

Figure l is an elevation of a protective cover for garments constructed in accordance with this invention.

Figure 2 is a detail of the construction as illustrated in Figure 1.

Figure 3 is a detail of a modified construction.

Figure 4 is a detail of a still further modification.

The numeral I indicates the body portion of a cover constructed in accordance with this invention. Said body is formed of two sheets 2 and 3 of Cellophane or other transparent material. Said sheets are of similar shape, with the exception that sheet 2 is cut away as shown at 4 along the upper middle portion thereof to form the usual opening 5 for the hanger hook. The lower edges of both sheets have secured thereto overlapping adhesive tapes 6 and I which serve as bindings therefor. The cut away portion 4 of sheet 2 is provided with a similar binding 8. Similarly the side and upper edges of each of the sheets is provided with an overlapping adhesive tape binding 9-9. The sheets having been so provided with the adhesive tape bindings are assembled by placing them in registering position, and bindings 9-9 stitched as shown at l0 along the side and upper edge.

In Figure 3 a modified form is shown, wherein the sheets are assembled by means of a single adhesive tape II, which overlaps the side and upper registering edges of the sheet 2. The sheets are then sewed together by means of stitching l2 which passes through the tape and edges of the two sheets of Cellophane.

In Figure 4 a further modification is shownin which also a singleadheslve tape 13 is employed to assemble sheets 2 and 3. Along the middle adhesive side of the tape l3, however, a strip of fabric has been secured, and the edges of the sheets 2 and 3 abut against said fabric I4.

From the foregoing description it will be observed that in each of the several forms of construction described no free portion of the adhesive side of the tape is displayed inside the cover where it could contact with a garment. In the form shown in Figures 1 and 2 the adhesive tapes entirely overlap and are secured to the edges of the sheets, and the assembly is performed by stitching through the tapes, thus the portions of the tapes displayed on the inside of the cover consist only of the outer non-adhesive sides thereof. In the form shown in Figure 3, the line of stitching I2 passing through the tape and the .edges of the Cellophane sheets, serves to secure directly together the sheets themselves, so that they provide a continuous inner surface, preventing the display of any adhesive portion of the binding. As disclosed in Figure 4 a like result is obtained by the shielding of the inner surface of the tape by the strip of fabric l4 against which the edges of the Cellophane sheets abut.

' It will furthermore be seen that in each of the above constructions increased strength and durability is obtained by means of the stitching in the first two forms of my present invention, and by reason of the reenforcement provided by the strip 14 inthe form disclosed in Figure 4.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters NATHAN I. FLEISCHER.
