NECKT'IE Filed Feb. 10, 1934 ma LWIN R SNIDER IN VEN TOR ATTORNEY Patented Aug. 24, 1937 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFEE 1 Claim.
This invention relates to improvements in neckties and similar articles and. while intended for use generally wherever it may be advantageously applied, the invention is particularly intended for application to four-in-hand ties in which connection it will be illustrated in the drawing and hereinafter specifically described.
Objects of the invention are to provide a necktie of simple construction which can be economically manufactured; which can be subjected to hard usage for a relatively long period of time without losing its shape and which may be quickly and conveniently cleaned and pressed without losing its original shape and appearance.
Other objects are to provide a necktie composed of a folded layer having a co-extensive lining layer and secured thereto along the edges thereof and additionally secured thereto along the lines of fold to prevent a relative shifting movement of. the two layers and to provide a necktie of substantial thickness free from padding or other inserted lining material.
The above and additional objects are accomplished and additional ends are attained by the novel construction, hereinafter described with reference to the accompanying drawing in which there is shown an illustrative embodiment of the invention, it being understood that changes and modifications may be made or resort had to substitutions which come within the spirit of the invention as set forth in the claim hereunto appended.
In the drawing, like characters of reference are employed to designate like parts as the same may appear in any of the several views and in which:-
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a necktie constructed in accordance wth this invention,
Figure 2 is a fragmentary view showing one end of the tie body as the same is formed preparatory to folding,
Figure 3 is a cross sectional view of a tie constructed in accordance with this invention, the same being taken as indicated by the lines 3 -3 of Figure 1,
Figure 4 is a cross sectional view taken as indicated by the lines 4-4 of Figure 2, and illustrating the manner of arranging the body and lining plies and the method of securing the same in assembled relation,
Figure 5 is a view similar to Figure 2 showing a modification of the invention,
Proceeding now to a detailed description of the invention with reference to the particular adaptation thereof disclosed in the drawing,
the numeral 6 is used generally to denote the main body layer of a necktie. The layer 6 is preferably composed of silk but may be composed of any suitable material. The numeral 1 denotes a layer of lining material which is cut to the same shape as the layer 6 and which is superimposed thereon to extend over the entire inner face thereof. The layers 6 and 'l are secured together around the entire outer edge thereof with a line of stitches.
The lining layer 1 is first secured tothe top layer 6 along one lateral edge thereof by a row of stitches 8 which extends in close, parallel relation to each edge. The layers 6 and 1 are then additionally secured together by a row of stitches 9, which extends longitudinally of the tie and which is located intermediately between the medial line thereof and the line of stitches 8.
The layers 6 and 'l are thus additionally secured together by the row of stitches H] which extends longitudinally of the tie intermediately between the medial line thereof and the other edge of the body 6. The remaining lateral side of the body 6 and the lining I may be additionally secured by a row of stitches II which extends longitudinally thereof. The ends of the layers 6 and l are then secured together at the ends by a suitable seam I2. The lateral portion E3 of the tie lying between the seams B and 9 is folded along the line of. stitching 9 over the central portion M which lie between the lines of stitch ing 9 and Hi. the lines of stitching l9 and H is likewise folded over the portion I l and the opposite edges thereof are secured together with a seam ll. As the body 6 and the line 1 are considerably wider at each end thereof the seam ll preferably terminates in spaced relation to each end thereof.
A two-ply structure is thus formed with the main body ply 6 positioned on the inside thereof. One end of the body thus formed is pulled longitudinally through the cavity thereof to bring the body layer (ion the outside thereof. The tie thus formed is then pressed along the lines of stitching 9 and I!) to form a completed tie.
A necktie of substantial thickness is thus formed in which the co-extensive layers of body fabric 6 and lining fabric 1 are joined around the edges thereof and are additionally joined by the rows of stitches 9, H), which are disposed 1ongitudinally of the necktie.
In Figure 5 there is shown a modification of the invention in which a two-ply tie body 6a is provided with longitudinally disposed rows of The portion of the tie 15 between I stitches 9a and Ilia which are positioned adjacent the lines of fold l8.
While the lines of stitching 9 and I0 have been illustrated and described as extending the full length of the lines of fold, the same may be confined to the portions of the tie which are subjected to the hardest usage, if desired.
Having thus illustrated preferred embodiments of the invention and set forth a full and complete 10 description thereof, claim is made as follows:-
A necktie comprising a body composed of two
