Aug. 4, 1953 H. RASSNER SPORT SHIRT HAVING DETACHABLE INSIGNIA PANEL Filed May 13, 1950 INVENTOR HenayKassnen BY A RNEY S Patented Aug. 4, 1953 UNITED OFFICE SPORT SHIRT HAVING DETACHABLE INSIGNIA PANEL Henry Rassner, Union City, N .J assignor to Sidney Bogad, North Bergen, N. J.

Application May 13, 1950, Serial No. 161,792

3 Claims. 1

The present invention relates to sportswear, and it is directed specifically to a sports shirt embodying a removable insignia panel, whereby the latter maybe quickly and easily removed to give the shirt a conventional appearance.

Heretofore, it has been customary generally to embroider or applique the name of a sports team or event directly directly on the back of a sports shirt, which means that the shirt may be Worn only when the wearer is participating in an event connected with the activities of a particular team or contest. It is therefore customary for sportsmen, such as for example bowlers who frequently belong to many teams, to have a different sports shirt for each team. There has also been used a freely depending removable or detachable insignia shield adapted to be mounted on the back of a shirt to carry a name of other advertising indicia, but this shield is very annoying to the wearer because of its tendency to flap around the back, shoulders and neck of the wearer during any strenuous activities. I

With the present invention all of these inherent disadvantages of the prior art constructions have been obviated, and a sports shirt has been devised which can be worn when playing with a number of different teams by merely substituting an appropriate insignia panel, or, when the wearer is not engaging in sports activities, it may be worn as a conventional shirt merely by removing the panel member.

An object of the invention is to provide a sports shirt that may be worn with an identifying insignia when the wearer is engaged in sports activities, and, which may be converted to a conventionally appearing shirt merely by removing a detachable panel member covering the back thereof.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a sports shirt which provides the wearer with a removable identifying insignia that may be quickly and easily changed from time to time, which has a conventional appearance when worn either as a sports insignia shirt or as a conventional shirt, and which is free of objectionable annoyances.

Other' and further objects and advantages of the invention, which result in simplicity, economy and efiiciency, will be apparent from the following detailed description, wherein one form of embodiment of the invention is shown, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part hereof, wherein like numerals indicate like parts, in which:

Figure l is a rear elevational view showing a 2 sports shirt constructed in accordance with the principles of the invention.

Figure 2 is an enlarged fragmentary cross-sectional view of the shirt shown in Figure 1, the

' same having been taken substantially along the line 2-2 thereof, looking in the direction of the arrows; 1 3 Figure 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of the shirt shown in Figure-1, thesame having been taken substantially) along the line 3-4- thereof, looking in the direction ofv the arrows; and

Figure 4 is a front elevational view, on a slight- 1y smaller scale, of the removable back panel shown mounted on the shirt in Figure 1.

Referring now to the drawings and particularly to Figure 1 thereof, there is shown a sports shirt Ill, made of any suitable shirt material, having a conventional split or divided front ll consisting of side panels I3 and I4 adapted to be secured removably together with buttons I6. The sports shirt It consists of a-divided'front H, back I! and laterally extending sleeves I8 and I9, allof which are of a conventional construction, having conventional-seams or stitching 20. The shirt Ill also has a yoke memberfli formed integrally therewith across the top portion of its back H, which yoke member extends transversely thereofv adjacent its neck portion 22 and laterally to adjacent the seams 23 securing the sleeves l8 and 19. The yoke member 2| is stitched or sewed to the back I! along its top and side edges, as shown by the seams 24, but its lower or bottom depending edge 25 is free, as best shown in Figure 2, and is provided with an upturned inside hem 26, which has aplurality of fastening members 21 mounted along the inner edge thereof in a horizontal plane. Of course, the fastening members 21 may be mounted directly on the shirt back l1, if desired, provided they are so positioned as to be concealed by the depending yoke 25.

Additional transversely spaced fastening members 29 are mounted on opposite sides of the shirt back I! adiacenteach of the sleeves l8 and I9 thereof, which fasteningmembers are arranged in an intermediate horizontal plane spaced vertically below the plane of the members 21 mounted on the underside of the yoke 2|. A conventional tail portion 3! of the shirt back llis also provided with a series of transverselyspaced fastening members '33,-adjacent the lower corners and below the waist-line 32 thereof, as best shown in Figures 1 and 3. The fastening members 33 are also arranged in a horizontal plane, which is spaced vertically below the intermediate plane of the members 29.

A detachable insignia. carrying back panel member 36, which is shown in elevation in Figure 4, consists of a panel of shirt material having the conventional inturned stitched hem 31. The panel member 36 is of substantially the same size and shape as the back portion ll of the shirt 1!). It will be noted that the detachable panel member 36 is cut or notched arcuately adjacent its opposite top corners to follow the lines of the conventional. sleeves I8 and 19, as indicated at 38. The top edge of the panel 36 is straight and is provided with a series of fastening members 39 adjacent each corner, which are spaced to correspond with the spacing of the members 21 mounted along the inside of the hem 26 of the yoke 2| with which they are adapted to cooperate.

A second series of intermediate and transversely spaced fastening members 4| are provided adjacent the lower corners of the arcuate cutouts 38, which is adjacent the lower back edges of said sleeves l8 and 19, which are spaced to correspond with the spacing of the members 29 of the shirt back 11.

A third series of transversely spaced fastening members 42 is provided adjacent the lowermost corners of said panel" member 36, which are spaced to correspond with the spacing of the members 33 of the shirt back l1.

It will be noted that the detachable panel or insignia carrying member 36 is, therefore, secured to the shirt back along three vertically spaced horizontal planes; at the top, as indicated by the spaced fasteners 39; at an intermediate position, as indicated by the fasteners 4|; and at the bottom, as indicated by the fasteners d2.

In actual use, the insignia carrying back panel member 36 first secured to the shirt Ml by cooperatively securing the fasteners 39 to the fasteners 21 mounted on the underside of the yoke 2t. The intermediate series of fastening members H are then cooperatively secured to their corresponding fasteners 29 intermediate the shirt back H. When the first two series of fasteners are secured to their respective cooperating members, the last series of fastening members 42 may be secured to their respective cooperating fastening members 33. It will be obvious that, when it is desired to remove the insignia panel, the same may be accomplished merely by reversing the procedure or by separating the several fastening members in any order.

The invention has been shown for purposes of illustration employing merely conventional separable snap fasteners, but it is to be understood that the same could be carried out readily with buttons and buttonholes, hooks and eyes, or even separable types of slide fasteners. Therefore, it is to be undertsood that the term fastening members is intended to include. all of such separable fastening combinations.

While I have only shown and described in detail one form which the invention may assume, it will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art that the same is not to be so limited, but that various modifications other than those mentioned above may be made therein without departing from the spirit thereof or from the scope of the appended claims.

What I claim is:

1. An improved sports shirt consisting of a permanently attached front, back, laterally extending sleeves, and a yoke member extending across the top portion of the back thereof which has at least a free lower depending edge, a series of spaced fastening members mounted on the underside of said yoke along said free edge thereof, said shirt having spaced fastening members mounted on the back thereof adjacent each of the sleeves, said shirt having spaced fastening members mounted adjacent the lower edge of said back, and a detachable insignia carrying member having a plurality of fastening members disposed at spaced intervals so as to engage cooperatively fastening members of said shirt to mount detachably the same thereover.
