GARMENT'FOR BOYS Original Filed Oct. 9, 1933 IINVENTOR 58% M1211, BY

ATTORNEY Patented Mar. 17, 1936 UNITED STATES GARMENT Betty Rubin, Brooklyn,

FOR BOYS N. Y., assignor to Eagle Boys Suit Corporation, New York, N. Y., a corporation of New York Application October 9,

1933, Serial No. 692,775

Renewed August 8, 1935 6 Claims.

My invention relates generally to the association of an inner or outer garment, such as a pair of drawers, with an outer garment, such as a pair of trousers.

In one of its aspects my invention relates to an arrangement whereby an inner garment and an outer garment may be associated. together and in another aspect it relates to an arrangement whereby the garments so associated may be supported from the waist and the hips and when necessary can be conveniently and rapidly removed from such support while in their associated relation.

In still another aspect, my invention relates to an arrangement for contracting the waist band portion of a garment adapted to be supported from the waist or hips by such contraction.

My invention is particularly intended for garments for boys, such as trousers and the corresponding articles of underwear, and is therefore so illustrated in the drawing and described in the specification.

It is the general object of my invention to provide for the association in a novel manner, of boys trousers and drawers.

It is the further object of my invention to provide a construction whereby garments of the character referred to may be supported from the waist and from the hips, and, more particularly, an arrangement whereby two such garments may be maintained and associated for ready assembly and disassembly, and may be supported from the hips and the waist and readily removed therefrom as a unit while in such associated relation.

For the attainment of these objects and such other objects as may hereinafter appear or be pointed out, I have illustrated an embodiment of my invention in the drawing, wherein:

Figure 1 is a view showing an inner and an outer garment in assembled relation;

Figure 2 is a sectional view on an enlarged scale on the line 2-2 of Figure 1 looking in the direction of the arrows; and

Figure 3 is a perspective view showing in detail my invention as applied to an outer and inner garment.

Referring to the drawing in detail, I have there shown a pair of trousers it, such as customarily worn by small boys and having a waistband portion I2, and a pair of drawers l4 adapted for small boys wear, having a waist band portion It.

For the purpose of retaining the trousers in place, I have shown at 18 a restricting element in the form of an elastic band. This restricting element is secured to the trousers as shown at 28 in any preferred manner as for instance by stitching. This leaves the outer ends of the elastic band free, and secured to each of the ends 5 is shown a button 22. On each side of the securing point 20 of elastic band is located a transverse slit 24, which is wide enough to permit the insertion therethrough of the ends of the elastic band. In the waist band portion of the drawers are located the transverse slits 28 which are intended to register with the transverse slits 24 of the trousers. These slits are also adapted for the insertion therethrough of the end portions of elastic band l8 and when one end of the elastic band is inserted successively through slits 24 and 28 and the button 22 thereon is successively inserted through button-holes 30 and 26, it will be seen that the drawers and the trousers are then secured together, as clearly shown in Figure 2. It will of course be understood that normally all ends of all the bands l8 will engage their appropriate button-holes. It will further be noted, as appears in Figure 2, that the distance between the buttons 22, as measured along elastic band I8, is less than the distance between the button-holes 26 or 3!], measured along their respective garments. The resulting effect can be clearly observed in Figure 2, in which the trousers and drawers are shown gathered in in relation to the band. The normal length of the bands I8, is proportioned so that they contract the waist-band of the drawers and trousers to a girth less than that necessary to encircle the waist of the wearer and so that when the garment is positioned on a wearer, the bands will yield and hold the garment about the waist and fit the wearer by elastic tension. The gatheredin folds of the outer and inner garments, shown in Figure 2, will in the meanwhile provide for the necessary expansion of these garments.

It will be noted that whereas the slits 24 and 28 are disposed transversely to the waist band, which is obviously their logical disposition to permit passage of the elastic band therethrough,.45 the button-holes 26 and. 30 are disposed longitudinally or horizontally in relation to said waistband. Such disposition permits lateral adjustment between the various parts connected by the buttons 22, namely the bands I8 and the waist-bands l4 and Hi. The advantage of such lateral adjustability is obvious and needs no explanation.

While in Figures 2 and 3 I have shown the elastic band I8 as connecting or adapted to connect the inner and outer garment, it is obvious that it may perform the same function in relation to one garment only. This will appear from inspection of Figure 2. If, in imagination, the waist band 16, be eliminated in Figure 2, the capacity of the band I8 for supporting the trousers ID will then appear clearly.

While'I have shown and described my invention in relation to one embodiment thereof, it will be obvious that the same may be embodied in many other forms, as will be apparent to those skilled in the art, without departing from the spirit thereof, as defined in the claims appended hereto. 7

It will be understood that the drawers I4 is a completely operative unit as such by itself and that the same is true of the trousers I0 and that the two are illustrated as modified only insofar as a ready association of the two into a single assembly and a disassociation of the two into individual units calls for such modification. Each garment is therefore replaceable in the assembly at will and is subject to washing or other treatment by itself.

Having thus described my invention and illustrated its use, what I claim as new and desire t secure by Letters Patent is:

1. In boys wear, an inner bifurcated nether garment having a Waistband portion and a body portion and an outer bifurcated nether garment having a Waist-band portion and a body portion and adapted for surrounding the inner garment, means carried by said outer garment on each side and on the waist-band portion thereof for elastically and conjunctively supporting said garments from the waist and the hips of a wearer, said means comprising extensible elastic bands of substantial width each permanently fastened at its middle portion to the outside of the Waistband portion of said outer garment and carrying a button adjacent each of its ends, a transversely disposed slit of suflicient width to receive therethrough said elastic bands, positioned in the waist-band portion of said outer garment on each side of the middle portion of said elastic bands, and adapted to permit passage therethrough of one of the button-carrying ends of one of said bands, a transverse slit in the waist-band portion of said inner garment registering with each of said transverse slitsin said outer garment, and likewise adapted to receive therethrough one of said button-carrying ends, laterally extending slits in the waist-band portion of said inner garment, each adapted to receive one of the buttons carried by said elastic bands, a laterally extending slit in the waist-band portion of said outer garment, adapted to register with each of said laterally extending slits in the inner garment, and to receive therethrough one of the buttons carried by said elastic bands after it has been inserted through the registering slit of the inner garment, the distance between the buttons of each band being less than that between the lateral slits adapted to receive said buttons, whereby -said bands are free to be extended until their length equals the distance between said lastmentioned slits.

2.
