GLOVE Filed Sept. 8, 1941 ATTORNEYS Patented July 27, 1943 iJi'i'ED STATES E ATENT OFFICE GLOVE Edward J. Curran, Colorado City, Tex.
Application September 8, 1941, Serial No. 410,075 2 Claims. (01. 2-159 The present invention relates to improvements in gloves and has particular reference to working gloves as Worn by mechanics and the like.
An object of the invention is the provision of a glove equipped with means for conveniently pulling the same into proper Wearing position on the hand.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a glove having an exteriorly projecting pull member designed to enable pulling the glove on the hand Without soiling or distorting the cuff portion thereof. a
A further object of the invention is the pro vision of a glove of the aforesaid character which is simple and inexpensive in construction.
Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the description progresses.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are employed to designate corresponding parts throughout:
. Figure l .is a front perspective View showing the manner in which the glove is fitted onthe hand of a wearer,
Figure 2 is a front plan viewof the glove, and
Figure 3 is a fragmentary longitudinal section taken on line 33 of Figure 2.
Referring to the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred example of the invention, it generally designates the hand covering section of a glove, in the present example embodying finger and thumb stalls II and I2 projecting from palm and back portions of the body. This hand covering section is preferably formed of durable flexible material such as cloth orleather and is designed so that the inner end portion terminates in wrist-encircling arrangement. To this wrist portion of the hand section ill of the glove is attached a cuff section l3, in the present instance in the form of a gauntlet formed of comparatively stiff material having an inner edge portion conforming substantially to the dimension of the wrist portion of the hand section and shaped to flare outwardly therefrom.
Prior to connecting the cuff section [3 with the hand section IE) a pull member l4 formed of cloth or like flexible materialis shaped for connection therewith, in the present instance the pull member constituting a strip of material having longitudinal m'arginal portions l5 folded inward and stitched to the intermediate portion thereof by lines of stitching 6 with an end portion folded inward toform a doubled edge IT. The opposite end portion has'triangular shaped I corner portions l8 folded inward and stitched to the body along stitching lines l9 to provide a pointed end edge. Before assembly of the sections it! and I3 the member I4 is disposed so that the straight edged end portion is folded over the inner edge portion of the gauntlet 13, in a centrally disposed position as shown at Figures 2 and'3. The inner end portion of the gauntlet is then disposed to overlie the inner edge portion of the section 16 and these overlapping margins are stitched together by a line of stitching 20 which, at the same time, is run over the folded end part of the member 14 to firmly connect the same with this seam. When thus assembled the major portion of the member I4 is disposed exteriorly of the gauntlet to form a tongue 2|, ex-
tending along the forward portion of the gaunt-- let at an inclination diverging therefrom as best shown at Figure 3,
, When the glove is to be fitted upon the hand of a wearer the tongue 2| is grasped by the other hand and drawn toward the body so as to pull the glove into proper fitting position. By effecting this pulling operation through the medium of the exterior rearwardly projecting and inclined tongue member 2i the glove is fitted without soiling the gauntlet or the hand section or distorting the gauntlet.
It is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same and that various changes relative to the material, size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the subjoined claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. In a glove comprising a hand covering section, a gauntlet section having the inner end disposed to overlap the wrist portion of the hand section, a line of stitching connecting the overlapping portions of the said sections, and a pull member having an inner end portion folded over the inner edge of the gauntlet and secured thereto by the said line of stitching, the major portion of the said pull member projecting along the exterior of the gauntlet sections free of other glove parts with the exception of said seam.
2. A glove comprising a hand covering section, a gauntlet section havingits inner end connected by stitching to the Wrist portion of the hand covering section, and a pull tongue having its inner end portion secured to the connection between the hand covering and the gauntlet sections by the said stitching and having its major body portion disposed exteriorly of the gauntlet section and free of connection with other glove parts with the exception of the said stitching.
