ment or coat. ll anddnner garment member it,

Coat H, in this instance, is of the princess style with .the. lower,: out-flaring part 13. @"The; outer garment ll .hasclosure means, such ;as buttons 44. 1. Theinner -garment memberell consists. ,of

' face of the rear panel 30a of the trousers l and upper or blouse part I6, the latter being sewed with its lower edge I] to the trousers to form the seam Ila. Complementary fastening means I8 extend from the blouse part IE to the trousers l5 to open and close the inner I5 and blouse part l6 may be made of a fabric which may differ in color or shade from the material used for the coat H.

As furtherseen in Fig. 2, trousers [5 are discernible only when the coat II is worn in open condition (Fig. 2). Those parts of material forming the trousers l5 extend from respective seams 23c, 23d at the longitudinal side edges 23a, 23b on the inside of the coat ll'to" respective seams 24a, 24!). positioned at the inner the outer garment or-coat H. (Fig.4); p As can be realized from: Figs. 3 and-6,: front trouser leg panels 12a, 12b of trousers; l5 'which are immediately exposed to viewwhen the outer .garmentor coat H is in open condition,'imay be madeof adifierent'materialithan the rear trouser .leg panels 15a; l5b of the trousers l5. 1 I To this end, there are provided between sai front trouser leg panels 12a; [21) of trousers l5 and the respective rear trouser-leg panels: 15a, 15b intermediate seanis v215a,;2iib by whichthe respective front trouser leg panels are "connected with the respective rear trouser leg panels. 'As clearly illustrated in Fig. 6, to front trouser .leg panel .l 2a, which is preferably; made :of.v relatively heavy fabric, is joined rear trouser leg panel 15a of a material matching that of the gown'or outer garment H, said panel I5a beingin turn fixed at its outer longitudinal side edge .l5e by means .of seam 24a to the inner face ofxthe :rear'panel 30a of outer garment l1 Between seam23cand seam 24a (Figs. 5 and 6), between which is arranged side edge 25a, intermediate'lateral panels 26, 21 of the outer garment or coat I l- (Figs..1 and l) .are


. It is well understood that a 2527 :is provided at the opposite :side of side edge 25a of the outer garment or coat II, as seenin Fig.- Brand that a rear trouser leg panel 15b :similar and corresponding to panel l5a and provided withan outer longitudinal side edge 15 .is attached-to front trouser leg panel 12b (Fig. "79.1;

Front trouser leg panels 42a, l2b meet at crotch 28 and are joined together at contiguous .edges l2c, [2d in the front of the innergarmentmember I-2 by connecting: seam' 28a which terminates at the lower end 29 of said fastening .means l8; As seen in Fig. 7, the respectiveintermediate seams 26a, 26b connecting said front trouser-leg panels l2a, l2b with-respective rear trouser-leg panels l5a, I5b terminatee in the crotch 28.;

Rear trouser leg panels 15a, 15b incturn. are joined together at their contiguous edges 15c, l5d by a seam 1 5g (see-Fig. The rear-trouser leg panels 5:1, 15b extend upwardly and insuperposed position to the rear panel 30a. of the coat and meet the inner panel 30 which extends downwardly from'the upper coat part and' overlies'the inner face of the rear panel 30a to form an inner lining and to reinforce the same.- I l 1 The opposed outer :longitudinal side edges Hie, l 5f'of said'rear trouser leg 'panels l5a, [5b .are, respectively} connected by seams -24a;.24b :to the longitudinal side edges of the rear panel 30a of the outer garment or coat I I (Fig.7).

It will be well understood that the crotch 28 is curved in downward direction so as to fit the crotch of the human body. Due to the articular shape and the arrangement of the panels forming the outer garment or coat ll, particularly as illustrated in Figs. 2 to 4, the trousers are relatively wider at the lower part than at the upper ,or coat may also be laterally arranged instead of in the center thereof, as herein described. The

blouse-l t attached to the trouser I2 may have any desired cut-outs and shape.

It can be seen that there has thus been provided a combination garment which meets all similar side edge requirements from the practical point of view and in particular with respect to fashion and simplicityof operation. 1 -.'I'he combination garment hereinabove described consists of a coat orgown zwhich, when ,inopen position, exposes'to view a simulated inner 'l l consisting :of two frontv panels 23 having :each I a longitudinal side edge 2'3a, 23b, a rear panel 30a having longitudinal side edges 240, 2411, and intermediate lateral panels '26," 21: connected by seams-2411,2411; 23c, 23d, respectively, to the Ion-'- g itudinal side-edges 24c,- 24d :of. said rear-panel 30c and of said frontpanels 23; an inner garment member 12 having acrotch 28,sa-id inner garment member 12 comprising a blouse-panel l6 having side edges 2 l'connected' to said longitudinal 's'i'cle edges 23a, -23b'of said front panels 23, respectively, of said coat H-and having a lower edge I I, two front "trouser leg panels 12a, l 2b, two rear trouser-leg panels 15a, l5b,"said froht' 'trouser leg panels and "said rea'r'trouser leg panels being' each provided with respective contiguous edges 12c, l2dand I 50, I'5d,-a'first connectingseam'28a joining together said contiguous edges 12c, l"2d of saidfront tro'userleg panels 12a, 12b, asecond connecting seam l5g joining together said con connecting 'seams128 a; I'Sdgandboth' jsaid inter;

mediate, seams,.2a,' 26b intersecting eachother in said crotch '28 of saidinn'er garment member 12, ,saidlrear trouser leg", panels {5d l5b being each provided with .an outer .side edge 15c, 15

n e t nd n upw rd ean i u po we: tiqnto said rear panel 30a, saidfront, trouser leg panels l2a, l2b;being connected to said lower edgel l ofsaid blouse panel I-B Qand being each 7 provided with an outer side edge 12c, l2f, said =.o uter side {edges l 2e, I 2 f of said; front :trouser leg panels I2a, 12b being fixed, respectively, .to the. longitudinal :side edges 23a...23b of said front :panels 23' of .said .coatl l: at the iinnenfacethere- 0f, the .-.outer" .side; edges l 5e, :I 5f; =ofv:saida; rear tively, to the longitudinal side edges at 24c, 24d of said rear panel 30a of said coat at the inner face thereof.

Thus, one of the most desirable advantages of the invention is attained according to which this combination garment enables the user in emergency, such as air raids and like cases, to be quickly, adequately and entirely dressed. If a hood is attached to the outer garment or coat, head and body of a person will be fully protected and covered. I

Although the above improvements relating to a garment have been described with considerable detail and with respect to certain particular form of the invention, it is not desired to be limited to such details since changes and modifications in the form, arrangements, proportions and sizes thereof may well be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention in its broadest aspect.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Letters Patent, is:

A combination garment comprising an outwardly flaring coat consisting of two front panels having each a longitudinal side edge, a rear panel having longitudinal side edges, and intermediate lateral panels connected by seams, respectively, to the longitudinal side edges of said rear panel and of said front panels; an inner garment member having a crotch, said inner garment member comprising a blouse panel having side edges connected to said longitudinal side edges of said front panels, respectively, of said coat and having a lower edge, two front trouser leg panels, two rear trouser leg panels, said front trouser leg panels and said rear trouser leg panels being each provided with respective contiguous edges, a first connecting seam joining together said contiguous edges of said front trouser leg panels, a second connecting seam joining together said contiguous edges of said rear trouser leg panels, and an intermediate seam connecting together, respectively, each front trouser leg panel with a respective rear trouser leg panel, said first and second connecting seams and both said intermediate seams intersecting each other in said crotch of said inner garment member, said rear trouser leg panels being each provided with an outer side edge and extending upwardly and in superposed position to said rear panel, said front trouser leg panels,

being connected to said lower edge of said blouse panel and being each provided with an outer side edge, said outer side edges of said front trouser leg panels being fixed, respectively, to the longi-' tudinal side edges of said front panels of said coat at the inner face thereof, the outer side edges of said rear trouser leg panels being fixed, respectively, to the longitudinal side edges of said rear panel of said coat at the inner face thereof.
