' GARMENT SUPPORT Filed April 50, 1935 Inventor Z60 Jai/w vcy/r Patented Dec. 29 1936 UNITED STAT GARMENT SUPPORT Leo Jakupczyk, Simpson, Pa.
Application April 30, 1935, Serial No. 19,091
This invention relates to garment supports. The primary purpose of the present invention is to form a garment support for each different unit of a mans suit which will admit of the removal of either unit without disturbing the others, that is to say the coat, vest or trousers may be removed from the support without disturbing the other garments.
Another feature of the present invention is to arrange the difierent parts of the support so that the coat of the suit shall form a cover for the vest and trousers thereby permitting storing of the three units of the suit in the minimum of space.
Further objects of the invention are to provide a garment support of the character referred to -that lends itself to a formation of wire, that provides rollers so that the trousers may be inserted and removed from the support with the minimum of effort, that is strong, compact and durable, and that is comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.
the invention consists of a novel combination, arrangement and construction of parts as will be hereafter more specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the claim hereunto appended.
In the drawing wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views:
Figure l is a side elevation of the support in the assembled relation and showing the parts in garment supporting position.
Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1 showing the trouser supporting frame folded in preparation for shipping or storage in a suitcase.
Figure 3 is a vertical section taken substantially on line 33 and looking in the direction of the arrows.
Referring to the drawings in detail, A indicates generally the open coat supporting frame preferably formed of stout wire. The letter B indicates the demountable open vest supporting frame, and indicates the trouser supporting frame swingable on the coat supporting frame as will hereafter appear.
The coat supporting frame includes a horizontal bottom member 5 and a horizontal top member 6 which latter is parallel with the bottom member. Side members of the coat supporting frame 1, 8 extend inwardly and upwardly join- With the foregoing and other objects in view ting the ends of bottom member with the ends of the top member 6. Top member 6 is substantially less in length than the bottom member 5. The bottom, top and side members of the coat supporting frame all he in the same plane. Side members 7, 8 support the shoulders of the coat.
The shank 9 of the hook in is secured at its lower end to the center of top member 6 and this hook is used to support the garment support.
The letter D indicates a rest or yoke. This rest is formed of two longitudinally spaced hook shaped arms H, I2, the shanks of which arms join with top member 6 of the coat supporting frame A at their upper ends as at I 3, M. The ends of the hook arms join with a straight horizontal bar l5 to present a unitary support for,
the Vest frame B. It is pointed out that the hook portions of arms i l, l2 are directed outwardly so that the bow in the arms supports the vest frame laterally of the coat frame.
The vest supporting frame B includes a bottom and top rail it, I l disposed horizontally and parallel with each other. The ends of bottom rail I 6 are joined with the ends of the top rail I! by the side rails i 8, [9 which extend inwardly and upwardly from bottom rail I6. The top rail I! of the vest supporting frame B is supported at two spaced points by the bow in the arms ll, I2 so that the vest supporting frame B will not swing endwise although it may rock on the top rail I! as an axis. In the vest supporting position, the frame B lies in a plane laterally of the coat supporting frame A. It will be seen that the vest supporting frame B may be removed from the coat supporting frame without iemoving the coat from its supporting frame.
The trouser supporting frame is indicated generally at C and consists of a U-shaped wire frame made with a horizontal crown or bight portion 20 from the opposite ends of which rise the legs 2|, 22. On the free ends of legs 2|, 22 there are formed eyes 23, 24 respectively, and these eyes embrace the free end portions of the bottom member 5 of the coat supporting frame. On the intervening portion of the bottom member 5 is rotatably supported a continuous metal or wooden roller 25 which coacts with a roller 26 mounted on the crown 20 of the trouser supporting frame C. In between the confronting faces of the rollers 25, 26 there is a space 21 to accommodate the reception of a pair of trousers when the trouser supporting frame is in the pendant relation as shown in Figure l of the drawing. By having the pair of rollers 25, 26 coacting with each other, the trousers may be inserted or removed from the space 21 with the of effort.-
a hook carried by the top member, a roIier rotatably mounted on an intermediate portion of the bottom member and leaving exposed ends thereon, a pendant trouser frame carrying a rotatable roller which frame is pivoted to said exposed ends so as to swing to folded position for shipping and carrying, and. said roller on the trouser frame spaced from and coacting with the roller on the coat frame in the pendant relation to support trousers between the rollers. v
