This invention relates to trouser construction. In the customary construction of trousers, pockets, which open substantially at the'lateral sides of the trousers when they are worn, are pro-' vided. Provision likewise is made for other pockets opening at the back of the trousers. Pockets whichopen substantiallyat the sides of the legs,
It is an object of the invention to provide trousers construction in which substantially all pock ets or similar receptacles for accessories to be carried around by the wearer are associated to be located at the back of the trousers and enter into the trousers construction to strengthen the trousers.
Trouser constructions of the type noted usually incorporate a waistband made of pieces of material separate from the material for the body of the trousers. This waistband, in its manufacture, passes "through various operations and moves through the shop as-a separate unit to its completion before it finally maybe attached to the trouser body at its top edge. 7
It is an object of the invention to provide a trouser construction wherein the separate waistband which would normally extend upwardly from the top edge of the trouser body is eliminated, and is replaced by a trouser body in which the front and rear outer faces of the trousers upto their top edge are substantially unbroken, and in which reinforcement at the waist is provided by means of an additional ply which,.to-
gether with accessory receptacles made a part ofv the trousers, entersinto and strengthens the construction of the body of the trousers.
Other objects of the invention will be set forth hereinafter, or will be apparent from the description and the drawing, in which is illustrated anv any particular arrangement of parts, or to any particular application of any such construction or any such arrangement of parts, or to any spe- 2 cific method of operation, or to any of the various details thereof, even where specifically shown and described herein, as the same may be modified in various particulars, or may be applied in many varied relations, without departing from the spirit and scope of the claimed invention, a practical construction embodying certain details of the invention being illustrated and described, but only for the purpose of complying with the requirements of the statutes for disclosure of operative embodiments, and without attempting to disclose all of the various forms and modifications in which the invention might be embodied. On the drawings, in which the same reference characters refer to the same parts throughout, and inwhich-is disclosed such practical construction.

Receptacle 24 may be constructed asshown for the retention of golf tees 34; receptacle ZSmaIy be constructed for the reception ofa-p'encil 36'; receptacle 28 may be in the form of a loop to receive a towel, a handkerchief 38, or a similar piece of cloth; and receptacles 30 and 32 may take the form of pockets which will be more fully described hereafter.
In the construction of the trousers, a plurality of" pieces of fabric are stitched together, the pieces offabric being cut out according to apredetermined pattern. Specifically, the special method or pattern that may be followed in cutting cloth to-organize trousers of this'ty-pe is not here considered important, except that, as shown, sections, 42', 44 and' lfi are continuous and unbroken upto top edge 2f). 46 may be united by a seam 58, a portion of which may beleft open, as, for instance, at- 50; inthe usual fashion.
However, this trouser construction includes no usual waistband construction; as shown in Fig,
9, a separate member 52 is provided, the facing fi l-of which may be cut from fabric the same as that for the trouser body. Member 52- is made of such length that it will encircle the garment at waist I4 Member 52'- maybe made of'on'e' piece, or it may be fabricated froma plurality of'pieces. For instance, where an open seam 59 Sections 44 and and a fly 5% are provided, member 52 must'con- A,
top-edge ZEJ of' the trousers, and then-member 52 is folded into the position'of Fig. 9.
This construction, of course, leaves member 52 loose; the member, in turn, must be anchored to sections 40, 4-2, Hand 46 at different positions,
by tacking, and also inthe'mann'er to be indicated.
Receptacle 24" may be formed by means of a material piece E4 of alength such that it may be'gathered or otherwise formed to'leave open-- ings for the provision of individual ;)ocket's'li"5 for tees 34 In other words, the length of piece 64 is greater than the area of section 4 upon which it will be'disposed, sothat it may be shirredup and stitched, by very short tacking 68 so as to leave openings at edge 1i! through which tees 34 may be received. Suitable stitching 12 then extends around edges 'l l', IE and 78 to secure the entire arrangement in place: Stitching I2 and tacking 68; as shown in Fig. 10, also serve to secure member 52 to section 44.
A fabric piece 80 may be formed to provide a pocket or passage 82. 'Ihisis accomplished by shirring up the material so that the main body is spaced away from section 46 between suitable stitching Nalongits side edgeswhich servesto anchor the piece to section 46. This stitching, as shown in Fig. 9, also passes through and engages member 52 and anchors it to section 45.
A material piece 86, the edges of which may be folded and stitched in the usual manner, may be secured in place by means of stitching 88 at its end edges. Stitching 88 may engage this piece to section 46 .so as to provide aloop intowhich a towel, a handkerchief or similar cloth member may be slipped during play.
Receptacles 30 and 32 are in fact separate and distinct members which ma be tacked to sections M andlib after their construction has been completed. This, of course, does not apply to flaps 9U and 92 which are separately formed, stitched togethenand secured to the respective sections 44 and 46. These flaps may be provided with buttonholes 94 for receiving buttons 96.
In the case of receptacle 3E fabric piece 98 is secured to section H to provide a pocket- H10. Piece-98 1s L-sha-ped. Stitching Hi2, PM; magi-0a and I'll secures thevarious edges of this piece to section; 4'41 Stitching I06 maybe extended up to the top edge 112-01 piece 98.
A material piece H4, larger than the outline or receptacle 39, is out. It is folded along its edges and' is there stitched to" gusset pieces Hi to form gussets I182 Pieces IIB" are stitched" to section 44 to anchor the unit, thus formed", in place. The bottom edges of pieces I H!- and 98' may be stitched together tosection 4 4-, or sepa' rately, asshown. Stitching FITS divides pocket mil into twosections I29" and- I 22". Section F23; the-short one; may provide" for the reception of a golf -ball, while section I22, the longer one, will receive larger accessories, such as two golf balls or a pack ofcigarettes. The spaceih front ofpocket II!!! is utilizable for any other purpose.
For receptacle 32, a single inner pocket Ifl is formed bymeans of a piece I 2 6 of fabric superimposed on section 46- in the manner just described for receptacle 39'. Then a larger piece I 28" is used to-- form the-larger pocket. Thus a pair'ofpockets are formedwherein material may be separately stowed.
Many other changes could be efiected 'in the particular'apparatus designed,- and in the method of operation set forth, and in specific details thereof, without substantially departing from the invention defined in the claims, the specified??- scription being merely of an operative embodiment capableof illustrating certain principlesof the invention.
