This invention relates to an outer garment, more particularly to the short type of pants and has .for `its object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a garment of the type referred tol having its front formed in a manner to simulate a fly.
Further objects of the invention are to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a garment of the type referred to which is simple in its construction and arrangement, strong, durable, expeditiously positioned upon the wearer, pleasing in appearance and inexpensive to manufacture.
With the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists of the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be more specifically described and which are illustrated in the accompanying drawing wherein is f shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications may be resorted to which fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.
In the drawing:-
Figure 1 is a front elevation of a pair of short pants in accordance with this invention,
Figure 2 is a fragmentary view of the front of the garment illustrating the means providing for the simulation of the fly opened outwardly to illustrate a passage provided thereby,
Figure 3 is a fragmentary view in elevation looking towards the inner face of the front of the garment,
Figure 4 is a view similar to Figure 3 with the fly simulation means opened rearwardly to show the passage provided thereby, and
Figure 5 is a section on line 5 5, Figure 1.
The garment includes a body part I formed at the upper ends of its front and back spaced openings 2 and spaced external loops 3. A belt 4 slidably extends through the loops 3.
The body part I includes a front 5, a back 6, a crotch 1 and a pair of sides 8 having the upper portions thereof split. Reinforcing strips 9, I0 of strap-like form are secured to the inner faces of the front and back 5, 6 respectively, at the upper ends of the latter. Extending from the body part I is a pair of short leg parts II, I2.
The front 5 of body part I is formed of twov sections I3, I4. The section I3 at its inner side has extended therefrom a narrow iiap I5 which is imperforated throughout arranged at the left of the crotch 'l and extends from the upper end of one of the sides of the crotch 1 at the front of the latter to the upper part of body part I. The major portion I6 of ap l5 is of uniform width throughout. VThe 'Y1-remaining portion I1 gradually decreases in width .from its point of mergence with the portion. I6.V The latter. has a straight edge I8. The portion Il has a curved edge I9 which extends from the lower end ofthe edge I8 and merges at its lower end into the upper end of that side, as aforesaid of the crotch l. The edges I8 and I9 are free. The section i4 at its inner side has extended therefrom a flap 25 of the same width, length and form as the flap I5. The portion of greater length and of uniform width of the flap 20 is indicated at 2l. The remaining portion of the flap 20 is indicated at 22. The straight edge of portion v2l is designated 23 and the curved edge of portion 22 at 24. The flap 20 is folded against the inner face of section I4 in a manner to oppose the iiap I5 whereby the edges 23 and 24 of the iiap 20 will be flush with the edges I8 and I9 respectively of the flap I5. The bend provided by the ap 20 is indicated at 25. To the left` of and in proximity to the bend 25 a row of stitching 26 is provided. The stitching 26 extends from the upper end of body part I to a point above and in proximity to the portions Il, 22 of the aps I5 and 20. The row of stitching 26r connects the major portion ofthe length of the flaps I2 and 20 together. The portions of the flaps I5, 20 below the lower end of the vstitching 25 coact to provide a passage 21. The row of stitching 26 provides the inner side of the section I4 with a vertically disposed expansible pleat 28 having its free edge, which is the bend 25, aligning with the upper end of the front of the side 29 of the crotch l. The row of stitching 26 is substantially in alignment with the upper end of the front ofthe jside 30 of the crotch 1. A row of stitching 3l is employed for securing the flap 20, in proximity to the edges 23, 24 of the flap against the inner face of the section I4. The row of stitching 3l extends from the upper end of flap 2t to the upper end of the front of side 30 of the crotch 1, and conforms in contour to the edges of flap 20. The row of stitching 3l is free of the flap I5. The edges I8 and I9 of the flap I5 and the edges 23 and 24 of the flap 20 are provided with a piping throughout as at 32. I'he upper end of the iiap I5 extends between the strip 9 and the section I4. A means indicated at 33 is employed for securing the upper portions of the aps I5, 20, the section I4 and the strip 9 together. A horizontally disposed means indicated at 34 is employed for securing the secthe front of the crotch 1.
What I claim is:-
In an outer garment, a body part including a front and a crotch, said front being formed of a pair of oppositely disposed sections having imperforate flaps of like form extended from their inner sides, said flaps having outer side edges formed with straight upper portions and inwardly curved lower portions, the flap of one of said sections being inwardly folded against the inner face of the latter to oppose the other of said flaps whereby the flaps are concealed the outer face of the said front is provided with a bend aligning with the upper end of a side of the crotch at the front of the latter, the said noniolded flap having its outer side edge merging into the upper end of the other side of the crotch at the front of the latter, said flaps, when opposed, disposed in a like direction and extended laterally with respect to the said other side of said crotch, said flaps extending from the upper end of the front of the crotch to the upper portions of said sections, a row of stitching adjacent said bend for connecting said aps together, said row of stitching extending from the upper portion of the body part to a point removed from the lower end of the aps and in connection with a portion of the folded flap and a portion of the section having the folded ap providing the front of said body part with an expansible pleat aligning with the upper end of the front of the crotch, said row of stitching aligning substantially with the said other side of the crotch, the portions of said aps below and free of connection to said row of stitching coacting to provide a horizontally disposed passageway open at each end, a row of stitching coextensive with the length of the folded flap, spaced from the said side edge of the latter spaced from and of greater length than the other row of stitching and providing for securing said folded flap against the inner face of that section of which it forms a part and horizontally disposed means for securing said sections together at the upper end of the front of the crotch.
