This invention relates to an improvement in neckties for ladies, and particularly to means for providing highly reflective decorative assemblies.
lAnother object of the invention is to provide a necktie for ladies with design patterns or illustrative design forms and a decorative bounding ring of reflective elements grouped around the design patterns or forms to reflect light rays in all angles of projection, and to provide combined decorative'designs which attract attention and lend distinction to the necktie.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a necktie for ladies with neck band straps extending from opposite sides of the tie knot and provided with cooperating male and female button snap elements for adjustably securing the neck band around the neck of the wearer.
' A further object of the invention is t0 provide a necktie for ladies with a combination of woven i designs and ornamental beads and reflective elements disposed around the designs to give decorative relief to the layout, Without in any way interfering with the use of the necktie.
For Afurther comprehension =of the invention, and of the objects and advantages thereof, reference will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claim in which the various novel features of thel invention are more particularly set forth.
In the accompanying drawing forming a material part of this disclosure: i
ybeads and reflective cones.
Fig. lis an edge view of the necktie, showing themale and female coupling snap button elements.
Fig. is a view similar to that of Fig. 3 of a second modified form of this invention.
Referring to the drawing, which shows the practical embodiments of the invention, IU designates a necktie for ladieswhich comprises the knot or head I I, and the pendant tail or body I2,
which is shown t0 have an approximately oval form.
Thematerial for the knot IMI is extended to the right and left to provide neck band sections I3 1 claim. (o1. aan@ and I4. 'A neck band strap YI5 is attached to the neck band section I3 and another neck band strap I6 is attached to the neck band section I4. The neck band strap I5 is provided with a row of female button socket coupling elements I'I, and the neck band strap I6 is provided with a row of male button snap stud coupling elements. These elements are spaced equally from each other, and when the two neck bands straps are placed around the neck of the user, the three male button Snap studs may be coupled to the three female sockets. If the wearer has a small neck, two male studs may be coupled t0 two female sockets, or only one male stud may be coupled t0 one female socket. By the longitudinal spacing of the button snap elements, the neck band may be adjusted to fit the necks of various persons.
The face of the knot or head II is provided with a woven design figure I8 which may be of any design or pattern, and is provided with a bounding ring or loop I9 composed of small concave or dished meta1 or plastic reflective elements, and a connecting ileXible cord, wire or chain 2|.
The decorative reflective elements 2!) are disposed so that their concave faces are exposed in front of the necktie knot or head. These elements may be formed of colored metal, plastic or glass, and appear luminous when the necktie is exposed to light rays. Y
The vbody or tail I2 is also provided with a series of woven design figures 22, each differing from the other to provide contrast between the diierent design gures. Each of these design gures is surrounded with a ring or closed loop lof decorative concave elements 23, held together by a connecting cord, wire or chain 24.
The rings or loops of decorative reflective elements are secured to the fabric of the necktie by means 0f stitching which is wrapped around the wire or chain 24, in such manner that it is concealed by the decorative elements 23.
Some of these decorative and reflective elements may be formed convexly and arranged in decorative loops, the necktie appears to be ornamented with loops of fire and light and has the eiect of attracting attention to the wearer of the necktie.
While I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that 1 do not limit myself to the precise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modcations coming, within. the scope of the invention as dened in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent, is:

from the marginal edges 0f said pattern, and a plurality of ornamental reective elements se- 4. cured to said chain to move as the tie is worn to vary the reflective pattern.
