JOSEPH MANDEL, OF LA FAYETTE, INDIANA.
PANTALOONS AN D OVERALLS.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 235,888, dated December 28, 1880,
Application filed July 16, 1880. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH MANDEL, a citizen of the United States, residing at La Fayette, in the county of Tippecanoe and State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Impro\"ementsin l antaloons and Overalls; and I do hereby declare, the following tobe a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable othersskilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to that class of inventions known as re-enforcers or strengthenin g-strips made in one continuous piece, which is especially adapted to pantaloons, overalls, and drawers, as will be hereinafter more fully described, and pointed out in the claim.
In the drawings, Figure 1 represents a perspective View, showing the rear portion of the pantaloons turned inside out, with the re-euforcer applied. Fig. 2 is an enlarged View of the re-enforcer detached. Fig. 3 is the reenforcer in blank form, and Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional View attached to the seams.
A represents a pair of pantaloons, overalls, and drawers of any suitable size, cut, and material. The seams of the back and legs are sewed or joined with their edges overlapping in the usual manner, thus presenting a smooth surface for the reception of the re-enforcer A, which is made in one continuous piece having extensions B D E and crotch O. Said re-enforcer is applied to the seam on theinner side of the pantaloons, commencing from the opening of the back B, running down to crotch O. and turning up and attached to the inside of the fly or front opening, and thence extending down the legs of the inner seam, D D, of the V pautaloons, as clearly shown in drawings.
I am aware that shield-pieces arranged over a scam on the inner or outer side of a garment to strengthen the seams and to prevent irritating the skin of the wearer are not new, and
therefore do not claim such, broadly; but
