To avoid jabbing holes in the bottom ofth'e hip pocket, the ordinary type -overa11 hip pocket has a bottom reinforcement panel on theback "of the pocket panel at the oottomthereol.

In the. form of the.invention ilh strated in the to the bacl of .a pair oi overalls l2. Thesehip pockets ll are .iormed in accordance with the present invention and each has a main pocket [8, respectively; To avoid too miich bulk at the upper corners the corner of top edge 19. with side edges [4 and [5 may be c lt at an angle asindis ted b t an ul r q n f and '22 p tively. Thus, main pocket panel 1'3 is of general1y rectangular shapejhaving rounded bottom corners l1 and! and angular topco'rner's 2| and 22 l Forming a part of the reinforced pocket is preferably of rectangularflshape. Bottom edge 24 of the bottom reinforcement panel 23 is preferably spaced slightly above bottom edge lliof the main pocketpanel l3. Side" edges'ZB and 26 of the bottom reinforcement panel 23 are spaced inwardly fromflth respective side edges and 15 of the main pocket panel. Bottom reinforcement panel 23 secured to the back .faceof the main pocketpanel l3 by a double row of stitches 2'! extending between side edges i4 and It or tneinain ocket panel and along the portion of bottom reinforcement panel 23 adjacent top edge '28 thereof.

' in addition to bottom reinforcement panel '23, a pair or side reinforcementpanels 3i and =32 are provided; Side reinforcement panel 3l-has itsout'er edge 33 extending along but spaced inwaidly'iro m side edge 14 of the main ocket panel i3. Curved bottom or side reinforcen ent paneltl' conforms generallyto the curve.-

ture of orner not-the main pocket panel out panel, and the side reinforcement panel. ing 37, extending from top edge l9 along inner upwardly, with the outer side edge 33 extending 7 along side edge l4 of the main pocket panel, inner side edge 36 of the side reinforcement panel 3| is disposed at an angle inclined upwardly and outwardly with respect to the main pocket panel |3. The lower portion of inner edge 36 of side reinforcement panel 3| overlies side edge 25 of 'bottom reinforcement panel 23. At this point, the pocket panel has three thicknesses, namely,

the main pocket panel, the bottom reinforcement side edge 36 of the side reinforcement panel 3| and along side edge 25 of bottom reinforcement panel 23 to the bottom edge l6 of the main pocket panel, secures the side reinforcement panel 3| to the back face of the main pocket panel Hi and to the side portion of the bottom reinforcement panel 23.

Similarly, outer side edge 38 of side reinforcement panel 32 extends along but is spaced inwardly from side edge H; of the main pocket panel l3. Bottom edge 39 conforms generally to the curvature of bottom corner l8 of the main pocket panel, and top edge 4| of the side panel is spaced from the top edge l9. Along its longer portion, side reinforcement panel 32 has its inner side edge 42 overlying the side edge 26 of the bottom reinforcement panel 23. Side edges 38 and 42 of the side reinforcement panel 32 converge upwardly in the same manner as side reinforcement panel 3|. Stitching 43 extends from top edge |9 along inner side edge 42 to bottom edge IG'of the main pocket panel. Due to the upward convergence of the side edges of the respective side reinforcement panels 3| and 32,

" their inner side edges 36 and 42 diverge upwardly towardthe top of the pocket. The stitching 43 along inner edge 42 of side reinforcement panel 32 not only secures this side reinforcement panel .to the back face of the main pocket panel but also securesit to-bottomreinforcement panel 23 along the side edge 26 thereof. I V

For the purpose of finishing the top edge of the pocket to provide a smooth and durable ex- ,posed top edge, the top edge portions of the jinain pocket panel l3and'the side reinforcement panels 3| and 32 are crimped along a line spaced below these top edges. Such a line is indicated in'dot' and dash lines at F in Fig. 4. With the 'top edge portions of the main pocket panel and the side reinforcement panels crimpedover the back face of the main pocket panel, a double row'of stitching 45"secures the crimped portion to the unfolded portions. As will be noted'in Fig. 5, the diagonal cut corners 2| and 22 prevent an accumulation 'of excess material in the upper corners of the pocket. As shown in Fig. 5, the patch pocket is completed with the exception of the assembly of the pocket onto the overalls. As it appears in Fig. 5, the main pocket panel has bottom reinforcement panel 23 secured to its 7 back face by stitching extending between the sides of the main pocket panel along the top edge of the bottom reinforcement panel. Side reinforcement panels 3| and 32 extend along the respective sides of the main pocket panel and ,have their inner side edges secured by stitching extending from the top edge of the main pocket 4 panel to the bottom edge thereof. This stitching along the inner side edges of the side reinforcemain pocket panel and side reinforcement panels. are crimped over the back of the main pocket panel and secured by stitching extending between the sides of the main pocket panel.

Before assembly onto the overalls, the marginal portions of the main pocket panel, extending outwardly at the sides and bottom of the reinforcement panels, are crimped over the side edges 33 and 38 of the side reinforcement panels as well as the bottom edges 34 and, 39 thereof. Also,

the bottom marginal portion of the main pocket panel is crimped over the bottom edge 24 of the main pocket panel. These crimped side and bottom edges of the main pocket panel are then secured by a double row of stitching extending along the sides of the side reinforcement panels, the

bottoms of the side reinforcement panels and along the bottom of the bottom reinforcement panel. This stitching not only secures the main pocket to the overall garment, but also secures the side and bottom edges of the reinforcement panels to the main pocket panel.

When assembled on the overall garment, the reinforced patch pocket of the present invention provides reinforced sides and a reinforced bottom, extending from the stitching securing the pocket to the garment inwardly toward the center of the pocket. This reinforcement along the sides of the pocket as well as the bottom thereof prevents holes from being worn in the pocket when sharp tools are jabbed into the reinforced part. With this construction, the pocket will wear longer than a pocket having only a bottom reinforcement because the pocket is stronger and the sides will stand more punishment than. pockets of conventional design. Inasmuch as the side reinforcement extends all the way from the top to the bottom of the pocket, it is unnecessary to have a bottom reinforcement panel extending entirely across the bottom of the pocket. The vertical stitching securing the side reinforcement panels to the main pocket panel further reinforces and strengthens the.

pocket itself. In addition, the particular arrangement of the inner side edges of the side reinforcement panels overlying the side edges of the bottom reinforcement panel not only strengthens the pocket itself but provides a construction which is easily fabricated without materially adding to the cost of the pocket.

In the foregoing description, a preferred embodiment of the invention has been described in detail, but it is to be understod that variations in this particular construction may be made without departing from the invention. Therefore, this description is intended to be constructed as illustrative and not in a limiting sense. Having thus described the invention, what is clamed as new is:
