This invention relates to a garment and more particularly to a garment of the type generally referred to as shorts.
The principal object of the invention is the provision of a pair of shorts having a partial inner garment formed integrally therewith-and of the same material. I
A further object of the invention is the provision of a pair of shorts having loose full cut leg constructions and of a pattern flattering to the wearer incorporating a partial inner garmentof relatively short length and of a pattern fitting the wearer closely.
A still further object of the invention is the provision of a garment comprising a pair of shorts having an inner partial garment affixed thereto at the waistband thereof, the sides of the inner garment being cutaway and the outer garment having a placket formed at one side thereof registering with one of the cutaway areas of the inner garment.
The shorts disclosed herein comprise an improvement in this type of garment in that a relatively full and comfortable short is provided which is particularly adapted for feminine wear and which garment incorporates a partial inner garment secured to the outer garment at the waistband thereof and adapted to fit the wearer closely and preferably employing elastic in the leg openings.
The outer and inner portions of the garment are formed of the same material and the outer garment preferably pleated to add to the fullness of the legs thereof so that the garment flatters the wearers figure and provides complete comfort despite any position the wearer may assume. The garment is provided with a placket at one side and incorporates a slide fastener or other suitable closure means.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed can be made without departing from the spirit of the invention.
The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, wherein:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the garment with the inner garment turned upwardly and outwardly with respect thereto.
Figure 2 is a perspective view of the garment with the inner garment in normal wearin position therein.
By referring to the drawings and Figure 1 in particular it will be seen that the garment comprises a pair of shorts having a front section l0 and a back section II and a crotch 12 formed therebetween to divide the said front andback sections l0 and II and a pair of legs l3 and I4. Vertically formed pleats l5 and I6 are preferably formed in the front sections of each of the legs 13 and I4 and extend upwardly into the front section ill of the garment and terminate at or near the waistband ll. The waistband I1 is secured to the garment and encircles the same and is separated at one side by a placket l8 which includes a slide fastener 19 or other suitable closure device and an extension of the waistband I! is eyeleted as at 20 to register with a button or other fastener 2| also positioned on the waistband and at the other end thereof. The garment will thus be seen to conform generally to a pair of shorts of a comfortable and loose fitting nature.
Secured to the waistband l1 and normally suspended within the shorts therefrom there is an inner garment including a front section 22 and a back section 23 attached to one another by short vertical seams 24 and 25 at the sides thereof to form short leg sections and attached to one another midway between the sides to form a crotch portion 26. The majority of the side sections of the inner garment is eliminated and the normal upper portion of the front section 22 is secured at a point 21 to the waistband ll while the normal uppermost portion of the back portion 23 is secured to the waistband I! at a point 28.
The leg openings in the inner garment are preferably defined by elastic bands 29 and 30, respectively. It will thus be seen that the garment in normal wearing position takes the form illustrated in Figure 2 of the drawings wherein the short leg portions of the inner garment are positioned within the leg portions I3 and M of the shorts and the front and back sections 22 and 23 suspend these leg portions from the waistband ll of the shorts.
It will be observed that the placket llB upon being closed, as in Figure 2 of the drawings, registers in the area of one of the cutaway side portions of the inner garment so that there is no doubling of material or doubling of plac-kets at this point. The garment will also be seen to be comfortable and practical in that the shorts are attractive and of a loose and pleasing fit while the inner garment is of relatively close fitting pattern and thereby suitably protects the wearer. The garments are preferably formed of the same material and sewed to one another at the waistband I1 and at the points 2'! and 28 heretofore referred to so that they become a single garment for all intents and purposes. It will be seen that the inner garment may be readily turned out of the outer garment, as shown in Figure l of the drawings so that the garment may be-vconveniently dri'edandironed. f f
The construction thus disclosed will be seen to as hereinbefore set forth.
Having thus described our invention, what we olaimis:
prising a pair of integral. leg encircling band porti'ons said band portions havingjuxtaposed nar- 20 V be of a nature making it of easy formation and, fully meeting the several objects of the invention row frontlsections extending upwardly therefrom i joined along juxtaposed inner edges and having juxtaposed-narrow rear sections extending. upwardly therefrom and joined along juxtaposed inner edges tozform a central seam and a crotch 25 u betweenthe leg band portions and to formnarrow frontand rear panels, .the outer. edges of said 7 front panelbeing substantially spaced from the outer edges of said rear panel to define enlarged l. o zrenings,- the upper edges of said front and rear 30 panels being permanently attached to front and rear portions, respectively, of the-Waistband of the shorts so that'said'inner garment can be h side thereof. a
, 4 V normally positioned within said shorts and posttioned exteriorly of said shorts for drying and so that the inner garment has its front and rear panels securely supported relative to front andrear portions, respectively, of the Waistband, the widths of said front and rear panels being at the necessary to support the inner garment so that the amount of doubling'of material at the portions of the combination garment covering the hips of the wearer and encircling the Waist of the wearer is minimized, a placket at one side of said shortsandiafiastener in said placket for closing the same; the placket registering with the en- 7 V larged opening between the outer edges of the A combination garment comprising a pair of 15 1 7 shorts including a waistband having leg construetions depending therefrom with a crotch dividing"- the leg constructions, and an inner garment comfront and rear panels of the inner garment at one JOSEPH DEUTSCH.
