Patented Jan. 12, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 4 Claims.
My invention relates to gloves of the gauntlet or long arm type.
Gloves of this character constructed from limp material are open to one objection in that the gauntlet or arm portion collapses or wrinkles back over the wrist or forearm thereby detracting from neatness and at the same time creating a nuisance by reason of the fact that the wearer is constrained to constantly readjust the gauntlet or arm portion of the glove.
I have eliminated this inherent disadvantage by the inclusion of a stiffening element in the gauntlet or arm portion of the glove, said element being of a permanent nature and serving to sustain the gauntlet in a graceful and intact flare in juxtaposition to the wrist or forearm.
To the accomplishment of the recited objects and others co-ordinating therewith the preferred embodiment of my invention resides in the con- 2 struction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and embodied within the scope of the appended claims.
In the drawing, Fig. 1 is a side elevation of a glove partly broken away to show the inner end of the stiffening element.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged perspective view showing a portion of the inside of the glove and the manner of securing the stiffening element thereto.
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the inside portion of the outer extremity of the gauntlet taken along lines A-B of Fig. 1, illustrating the particular means by which the outer terminal of the stiffening element is secured.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral 5 generally designates a glove constructed from limp material, as silk, net or the like, and provided with a gauntlet or long arm portion 6, and the usual longitudinally extending seam 1.
There are various ways in which the gauntlet portion in gloves of this type may, in accordance with my invention, be stiffened or reinforced to overcome the objection hereinbefore noted. I have exhibited one manner of carrying out the invention in the different figures of the drawing, and this comprises the incorporation of a bias hem binding or strip 8 which extends from the outer edge of the gaunlet inwardly to a point about where the gauntlet begins to flare or about on a line with the base of the thumb, and preferably disposed over the projecting edges 9 of the longitudinal seam l. Stitching ll] extends through the bias hem binding 8 and the edges 9 of the longitudinal scam I, and outer terminal ll of the bias hem binding is turned, flattened out and secured by stitching I2 of the outer marginal hem l3.
The material of which the bias hem binding is formed may be organdy, lawn or the like, which will maintain its stifiness or rigidity at all times, even subsequent to washing. It is also important in this connection that the material employed be of such texture that it will not chafe the wrist or forearm of the wearer.
In its broader aspects my invention comprises not only the various means shown and described but equivalent means for performing the recited functions. For example, if desired, the stifiening element need not be disposed in exact parallelism with the longitudinal seam; it can, if need be, arranged adjacent to said seam, or in fact on the diametrically opposite side of the gauntlet portion of the glove, if preferred. It is desired to reserve the right to effect such changes and modifications as may fairly come within the scope of the appended claims.
1. A glove of limp material comprising a body and a gauntlet or long arm portion, said body and gauntlet having a seam extending longitudinally thereof, and a stiffening element arranged interiorly of the gauntlet portion of the seam and adapted to contact the hand or wrist of the wearer.
2. A glove of the gauntlet or long arm type made of limp material, said gauntlet having an inside seam extending longitudinally thereof, and a bias hem binding in line with said seam and arranged interiorly of the gauntlet, said binding being of relatively still material.
3. A glove of the gauntlet or long arm type made of limp material, said gauntlet having an inside seam extending longitudinally thereof, and a bias hem binding in line with said seam and arranged interiorly of the gauntlet, said binding being of relatively stiff material, while the outer edge of the gauntlet is provided with a marginal hem for anchoring the adjacent terminal of said binding.
4. A glove of limp material comprising a body and a gauntlet or long arm portion, said body and gauntlet having an inside seam extending longitudinally thereof in line with the little fina IRWIN STEINBERGER.
