DETACHABLE SLEEVE FOR GARMENTS Filed Aug. 21, 1936 INVENTOR' fiomemc/I 512671110110 BY :ATTORNEY Patented Jan. 11, 1938 ITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Emma.

plates the provision of strips of flexible material attached at their outer edges upon'the bent in sections of the short sleeve portions and an arrangement by which the inter-engageable hooks are mounted upon said strips of flexible material.

Another one of the objects of this invention resides in the provision of a cover strip which is adapted to extend across the inner side of the junction between the extension portion and the short sleeve to prevent the inter-engaging hooks from engaging against ones skin.

Still further the invention proposes to so arrange the parts that when the extension portion is removed the said covering strip may be folded up and beneath one of the strips oi flexible material to which elements of the inter-engageable hooks are mounted, to encase and cover them from exposure and possible engagement against ones skin when the shirt is worn.

Forfurther comprehension of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features of the invention are more particularly set forth.

In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure:-

Fig. l is a perspective view of a shirt with sleeves constructed according to this invention.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary perspective enlarged detailed view of one of the sleeves illustrated with the extension portion partially removed-so that the details of the flexible strips and the inter-engaging hooks may he clearly seen.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary enlarged sectional view taken on the line 3-4 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a view similar'to Fig. 3 but illustrating a modification of the invention.

Fig. 5 illustrates the shirt sleeve shown in Fig. 4 with the covering strip folded upwards to enc'ase the flexible strip provided with the inter-engagesble hooks.

Fig. 6 is a similar view to Fig. 1, but illustrating another form. of the invention. "According to this invention the shirt sleeve comprises a short sleeve portion HI and an extension portion M constitutinga long sleeve. The adjapent-edges of said sleeve portions have bent mammals: and Hi respectively. Specifically, these bent in sections comprise an outer layer 10 continuing into an interior layer m A strip of flexible material it is attached at its outer edge to each of the bent in sections of the tions. For this purpose there is a line of stitches iii which extends through the bent in section and the adjacent portion oi-thefiexible strip of inaterial to accomplish the attachment of these parts.

An auniliary line of stitches i3 is arranged parallel to thetatiitehes ill at another area of these parts and serves merely'for the purpose of more securely connecting the parts together. The adjaoent edges of the flexible materials M are provided with inter-ensageable hooks M. These hooks are oi the type which may be inter-engaged with a controi'shde such as the slide it shown in Fig. 2. Thelnter-engaging hooks M are arranged completely along thelengths of the strips l5.

At one point one .of the edges is provided with a starting hloclr is adapted to receive a stud ill from the other edge so as to hold the hook fastener in a starting position. The control slide l6 may he slipped on the hook fastener in a conventional manner and along to cause. the fasteners to engage each other. The details of the fastener, the starting points it and W, and the control slide I! form no part-of this invention and are generally known inthe art and therefore will not be given in this specification.

In Figs. 4 and 5 a modification of the invention has been disclosed in which a covering strip of material 2! is disposedacross the junction between the short sleeve portion and the extension portion and is attached-at its top edge by the line 01 stitches II to the ,strip i2 and the adjacent bent portion ll of the shirt sleeve. This covering strip of material is of suflicient width to extend over the junction between the sleeve portions and cover the hookissteners.

Auxiliary hook elements II are attached at spaced intervals along the free edge of the covering strip II and are adapted to coact with fixedly mounted eye elements 22 upon the lower strip portion l2, as clearly shown in Fig. 4. It should bcnoted that the covering strip serves to encase the hook fasteners and'pmvents them from com.-

' in: into intimate contact with one: akln.

sleeve porcovering strip 20 is bent upwards across the hook fastener It to a position in which the hooks 2i engage complementary eye elements I2 mounted on the outer face of the flexible strip II. The device is shown in this condition in Fig. 5. when thus arranged the covering strip will protect-ones' skin from intimate contact with the hook; fasteners. v

In Fig. 6 buttons and buttonholes II are illustrated for joining the extension portions i I to the short sleeves ll of the garment. 'lhese buttons may also be in the form of ornamentations, or

snap fasteners.

While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modifications coming within the scope of the invention .as defined in the appended claims.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by. United States Letters Patent is:-

l. A sleeve comprising a short sleeve portion having its outer edge'portion bent inwards, a flexible strip of material disposed against the innor face of said bent in edge portion and attached at its inner edge on said edge portion,

hook elements on the outer edge portion of said flexible strip of material and adapted to interengage complementary hook elements associated with an extension portion for said sleeve to make a full length sleeve, a covering strip of material 9,104,021; f v disposed against the inner face of said flexible strip of material and attached at its inner edge and extending over the free edge of said flexible strip to the outer face thereof, fastening elements on said covering material, and coasting fastening elements on the outer face of said flexible strip for holding the covering strip releasably in position to be releasable to extend over complemen tary hook elements of said extension portion.

2. A sleeve comprising a short sleeve portion having its outer edge portion bent inwards, a

flexible strip of material disposed against the inner face of said bent in edge portion and at tached at its inner edge on said, edge portion, hook elements on the outer edge portion of said flexible strip of material and adapted. to interengage complementary hook elements associated with an extension portion for said sleeve to make a full length sleeve, 8, covering strip of material disposed against the inner face of said flexible strip of material and attached at its inner edge and extending over the free edge of said flexible strip to the outer face thereof, fastening elements on said covering material, and, coacting fastening elements on the outer face of said flexible strip for holding the covering strip releasably in posig tion to be releasable to extend over complementary hook elements of said extension portion, a second set of coacting fastening elements on the inner face of said flexible member, whereby said covering strip may be bent around said hook ele-= ments when said short sleeve portion is worn without said extension sleeve portion until said fastening elements engage said second set of coacting fastening elements to hide said hook elements from view;
