SHOULDER PAD FOR GARMENTS -med Jan. 17, 1947 vwa/wto o, PA vMo/vo D. COHEN,

Patented Oct. 24, 1950 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.

This invention relates to a shoulder pad for garments, and especially for womens garments such as sport-coats and dress-coats.

A primary object is to provide a novel shoulder pad which contains a sachet functioning to deodorize so as to overcome perspiration odors and to impart a delicate and pleasing scent or perfume to keep the article of clothing equipped with the pad, as well as dresses and other clothing worn beneath the same, fresh-smelling.

Another object is to provide such a shoulder pad as will retain its shape, cause the coat or other clothing equipped therewith to simulate military bearing, minimize the necessity of washing or cleaning, and generally produce a squarewell-rounded and concave shoulder.

Various additional objects and advantages will become apparent from a consideration of the description following taken in connection with the accompanying drawings illustrating an operative embodiment, by way of example.

In said drawings:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a shoulder pad constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig. 2 is a plan view of associated plies used in making the improved shoulder pad; and

Fig. 3 is a cross-sectional view through the shoulder pad taken approximately on the line 3-3 of Fi 1.

Referring specifically to the drawings wherein like reference characters designate like or similar parts throughout the different views, Ill generally designates the improved shoulder pad. The same has embodied therein as at H, any suitable sachet or means for imparting to the pad, or permeating the same with, a deodorant, a delicate and pleasing scent or perfume, or other odor. Such sachet is flexible, preferably being a fabric or water-proof bag including the odor or scent imparting ingredients. Such sachet is embedded in a filler I2, for instance of White China batting or any equivalent, and the latter has an envelope or shell at l3 which may be of buckram or other fabric.

The parts described constitute what I term an inner shell. Said described parts or inner shell are enclosed by an outside covering 14 which is made of any suitable material or fabric, such as a rayon fabric whose outside cover 14 preferably consists of three generally rectangular pieces or plies l and [6, there being two of the latter and the same: approximating half the size of the ply I5. Said plies 16 at their inner edges are inturned and stitched together at IT to form a seam. Also, the plies l5 and I 6 are stitched together as at 18, preferably by machine, at the rear upper edge of the pad and inwardly from the sides of the pad. Along the sides of the pad, the same plies are secured together and finished with a pinked edge I9.

Attention is called to the fact that the plies are so shaped and drawn as to maintain the position illustrated in Fig. 1, wherein the pad at the inner end is arched and relatively thick and high. The particular nature of the materials mentioned aid in attaining this end. Generally, the pad will therefore simulate in a coat or other article of clothing of which it forms a part, a military bearing. In addition, the deodorant, scent or perfume will keep the pad, article of clothing of which it is a part, and adjacent articles of clothing sweet-smelling, the sachet functioning to deodorize generally and especially to overcome perspiration odors and to impart a delicate and pleasing scent or perfume.

Various changes may be resorted to, provided they fall within the spirit and scope of th invention.

What is claimed is:

A shoulder pad having an envelope comprising a one-piece generally triangular ply, a pair of smaller generally triangular plies initially separate therefrom and from each other, said smaller plies having meeting edge portions secured together intermediate the sides of the first ply, the remaining edge portions of the smaller plies being secured to the edge portions of the firstmentioned ply, and a perfumed substance contained within the envelope, said smaller plies being of a size and area relative to the first ply to collectively produce an arch at one end of the pad.
