'rinsl'me ostitelliirigfsli also secures the'srieatn zii-'tothe lrnefiabrie'vzzff-trieside'panl 22u. To'

support the sheath 23 additionally an outer line of stitching 32 is shown as connecting the sides and bottom of the inner panel 2E to the inner fabric 22. The upper edge of the outer panel 29 of the sheath is preferably sewed to the outer fabric 2| as indicated at 33 and the upper edge of the inner panel 2B is preferably sewed to the inner fabric 22 as indicated at 3d. It will thus be seen that the mouth of the sheath 23 is adjacent the opening 24 and the umbrella 25 can be inserted into and removed from this sheath either from the outside of the side panel 2|] as shown in Figs. 3 and 4 or from the inside of this side panel as shown in Figs. 5 and 6.

To cover the opening 24 and also to render the handle of the umbrella 25 inconspicuous when the umbrella is carried as shown in Figs. 3 and 4, an outer pocket panel 35 is shown as being sewed along its sides and bottom to the side panel 20. This pocket is in the usual location of side pockets for garments of the type in question and this pocket may be utilized to carry whatever the wearer desires. A flap or lapel (not shown) may be provided for the outer pocket if desired.

It will thus be seen that to insert the umbrella 25 from the outside of the garment the point of the umbrella is inserted between the side pocket panel 35 and the opposing portion of the outer fabric 2| into the opening 24 and into the mouth or inlet of the sheath 23, the umbrella being preferably of such length that when inserted the full length of the pocket 3| of the sheath the handle of the umbrella will traverse the opening 24 so as to retain the handle on the outside f the garment as shown in Figs. 3 and 4. To remove the umbrella it is merely necessary to lift the umbrella out of the sheath. It will be noted that the garment does not have to be opened at its front to insert or remove the umbrella from the outside of the garment. If desired the umbrella can be inserted and removed from the inside of the garment as shown in Figs. and 6, this of course involving opening the front of the garment.

It will be understood that since the side panel 20 and sheath 23 are made of flexible material, the garment will drape or adjust itself to accommodate the umbrella when the umbrella handle is either on the outside or inside of the side panel 20 above the opening 24 therein.

It is preferred to arrange the sheath so that its axis is slightly inclined as shown in Fig. 1. The axis of the sheath 23 is shown as inclining downwardly and slightly forwardly of the side panel 20 of the garment so that when the umbrella 25 is carried in the sheath the umbrella rests comfortably against the thigh of the wearer and moves with the movements of the wearers leg. Such disposition of the sheath 23 also prevents the umbrella 25 from catching under the leg when the person sits down. It will be seen that the sheath is so arranged that the opening 24 in the side panel 2|] is adjacent the hip of the wearer so that when the person is walking or sits the umbrella pivots at the hip of the person.

It is also preferred to employ with the garment embodying the present invention an umbrella having an overall leng-th generally conforming to the distance between the hip and knee joints of the size of person wearing the garment. Con-` ventional umbrellas in such suitable sizes are available.

A garment embodying a modified form of the invention is shown in Figs. 8-12. The garment there shown is illustrative of a raincape particularly suited for children and includes a side panel 40 made preferably of a rubberized sheet material which is waterproof. The side panel 40 is shown as being provided with an opening 4| through which the hand of the garment wearer can be inserted, this opening 4| being shown as a slit located at the side of the side panel 40 adjacent the hip of the wearer. A sheath 42 is shown as being arranged on the inside of the side panel 40 and lbelow and slightly forward of the opening 4|. The sheath 42 is shown as being formed by securing the sides and bottom edges of an elongalted strip of flexible material 43 preferably waterproof in character, to the side panel 40 as by a line of stitching 44.

It will be seen that the mouth or inlet of the sheath 42 is adjacent the opening 4| so that by spreading this opening an umbrella 45 can be inserted through this opening and into the sheath 42 from the outside of the garment. Also, the umbrella 45 can be withdrawn from the sheath 42 through the opening 4|. If desired the umbrella 45 can be inserted into and removed from the sheath 42 from the inside of the garment.

The axis of the sheath 42 is preferably inclined downwardly and slightly forwardly so as to pos- 4sess the advantages described in connection with the form of the invention shown in Figs. 8-12.

In both forms of the invention the size of the umbrella receiving pockets of the sheaths 23 and 42 are such as to snugly hold the umbrella therein and prevent its unintentional or accidental displacement but yet permit the umbrella to be easily withdrawn.

From the foregoing it will be seen that the present invention provides an attractive garment for carrying an umbrella in a comfortable and inconspicuous manner when the umbrella is not being used. The umbrella can be inserted into or withdrawn from its sheath either from the inside or outside of the garment. Further, the invention is simple and can be inexpensively embodied in a garment as part of its original manufacture or incorporated into an existing garment by a simple modification thereof. The umbrella carrying sheath can be permanently or detachably secured to garment.

I claim:

1. In an outdoor umbrella carrying garment supported principally from the shoulders of the wearer, the combination comprising a side panel descending to at least the wearers knees and covering the lateral outer side of the wearers thigh, and fabric means secured to said garment and forming a vertically elongated sheath-like pocket open at its upper end and closed at its lower end and of a length approximately equal to the distance between the thigh and knee of the wearer and arranged in such position on the inner side of said side panel that said open upper end is generally in line with the hips of the wearer and said pocket extends downwardly along the lateral outer side of the wearers thigh and with said lower end being arranged adjacent the wearers knee in the erect position of the wearer, said open upper end of said pocket providing an inlet and outlet therefor for a collapsed umbrella of a length substantially equal to the length of said pocket thereby to permit said umbrella to be carried in said pocket with the upper end of said umbrella not extending above the wearers hip whereby the wearer can walk, sit and bend freely without unsightly `bulging from or interference with said umbrella in said pocket.
