S CARF- CAPUCHIN Filed July 21, 1945 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 INVENTOR flme/z'a (id/fan ATTORNEY Patented Dec. 31, 1946 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 3 Claims.
My invention relates generally to wearing apparel, and in particular it relates to an article of apparel which is usable as a scarf and as a capuchin; that is, a hooded head-covering. The present application is a continuation-in-part of my application Serial No. 587,580, heretofore filed on April 10, 1945. The main object of the present invention is the provision of an article of apparel, as a neck and shoulder-encircling scarf, which may simply, easily and quickly be converted into a capuchin by merely drawing one looped end of my article through the loop at the other end of the article, and then opening the threaded loop and placing same over the head of the wearer. The capuchin then remains closed without requiring buttons, zippers, clasp buttons or similar devices.
My new article of wearing apparel comprises, in essence, an elongated loop of material (of any desired length) which is stitched together along portions of the longitudinal edges to close the loop in from the ends thereof to herebyform two loops one at each end of the article, with the terminal edge of one of said loops being curved to make positive the formation of the capuchin. The construction of my scarf-capuchin is an exceedingly simple operation and can be made as inexpensive as desired according to the materials employed, yet durable and highly eficient for versatile uses.
If my novel article of apparel is to be used as a scarf, the same is formed by drawing the longer loop end through the other and shorter loop, and knotting the same about the neck to produce any desired effect commonly associated with scarfs.
The capuchin scarf may be made from any kind of material in all colors or if so desired, in contrasting colors, it may be made from light material such as silk or rayon celanese for summer or evening wear, .or of flannel, heavy cotton or wool, for use in colder weather, and for winter sports.
Another, very important feature of the invention is that the article can be made in waterproof silk, etc., or any other materials which are waterproofed or lend themselves to waterproofing.
Thus, for instance, in doubtful Weather a woman can go out wearing the article as a scarf of waterproofed material and in case of rain can throw it over her head as a protecting capuchin for head or hat.
This scarf, on account of its entirely new shape and design is particularly Well adapted for conversion into many and most becoming forms of turbans and head gear.
For fullest protection for ears, throat and neck in cold or wet weather, or while indulging in winter sports, etc., the larger loop end of my device is first drawn over the head as acapuchin and then the body of the device and the smaller loop end are Wound tightly about the neck and knotted, which will draw the material of the capuchin as close to the face, forehead and neck as desired.
Another object of my invention is the provision of a scarf-capuchin which comprises an elongated endless loop of material, the opposite sides of which loop are secured together only along a portion of the loop spaced from the ends thereof, closer to one end than to the other, said other end of the original elongated endless loop being wider at that end and longer on one side than on the other.
These and other objects and advantages of my invention will become more fully known as the description thereof proceeds, and will then be more specifically defined in the appended claims.
In the accompanying drawings forming a material part of this disclosure:
Figure 1 is a perspective View of one form of device constructed according to and embodying my invention;
Fig. 2 is a view showing my device in use merely as a scarf;
Fig. 3 is a view showing my device formed into a hood head covering, or capuchin; and
Figs. 4 and 5 are views illustrating other modes of using my device for covering or partially covering the head of the wearer.
As illustrated in Fig. 1 of the drawings, the elongated strip of material ID for forming the combination scarf and capuchin of my invention may be cut on the bias as at I l, and sewed together to form an elongated endless loop of material, the longer sides 40, 50 of which are stitched together, as at 42, 52 respectively to define .two loops l2 and H3 at opposite ends of the elongated member having their edge sections closed as at I4, IS (the terminal edge 66 of one of said loops I5 being curved). The reason for the curved terminal edge of loop l3 will be given hereinbelow.
When my combination scarf-capuchin is to be used as a scarf, as illustrated in Figure 2, the longer loop 13 is drawn through the shorter loop I2, which is then drawn up along the central portion of the elongated member as close to the neck of the wearer as desired, all as indicated at It.
When my new article of apparel is to be used as a scarf-capuchin; that is, as a neck-encircling device and as a head covering, the shorter loop I2 is flared and distended and the longer loop l3 threaded therethrough, into the position shown in Fig. 2. Thereafter, the longer loop I3 is flared and distended and passed over the head of the wearer, with the wider and longer portion 44 of this irregularly shaped loop l3 in front. The rear 43 of loop I3 is shorter than the front 44 thereof, to more or less accommodate this loop to the contours of the head and to provide more space to frame the face of the wearer. As seen in Figs. 1 and 2, the terminal end I5 of my device is wider than the width of the rest of the endless member.
Figs. 4 and 5 illustrate other methods of using my novel article of apparel; Fig. 4 illustrates its use as a head covering for inclement Weather, while Fig. 5 illustrates its use as a turban.
I have described and illustrated my article of apparel as comprising an elongated endless 1001:) member having its opposite sides secured together only along a portion of its length, spaced. from the ends thereof and nearer to one end, the other end being wider than the width of the remainder of the elongated endless member and longer on one side than at the other. My device 4 may be used in a wide variety of ways, serves many purposes, is easy and simple to make and use.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new is:
1. An article of Wearing apparel, which comprises an elongated endless loop of material, the opposite sides of which loop are secured together only along a portion of the loop spaced from the ends thereof and nearer to one end than the other.
2. An article of wearing apparel which comprises an elongated endless loop of material, the opposite sides of which loop are secured together only along a portion of the lop spaced from the ends thereof, and nearer to one end than the other defining separate openings through the loop in the same plane, one of which openings is greater than the other.
3. An article of wearing apparel as in claim 2, in which the securement is by parallel lines of stitching along the opposite sides of the endless loop, and the greater of the openings is longer on one side than on the other side.
