SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 367,460, dated August 2, 1887.
To all whom it nmy concern..-
Be it known that we, ED\VARD Srnunnsnn and OTTO STRUENSEE, citizens of the United States, residing at Grand Rapids, in the county 5 of Kent and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful article of inanufactureto wit, a Leather Turn -Down Collar of which the following is a specification.
Our invention relates to leather turn-down 1c collars for ladies, gentlemens, and childrens wear, and for this purpose we prefer the use of russet leather or patent leather, though any suitable leather may be used.
' The object of our invention is to provide a cheap, durable, and pliable turn-down collar for ladies, gentleinens, and childrens wear, that will dispense with the inconvenience and expense of the laundry, and at the same time avert the danger of combustion incident upon 20 the use of pyroxyline substances-such as celluloid and its kind red in the manufacture of these articles. a
The manner of forming and constructing turndown collars from leather is fully illus- 2 trated in the accompanying drawings, in
which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of our inven tion; and Fig. 2 is a back view of the same, showing the groove a used to facilitate folding 30 the collar.
Similar letters refer to si 11] ilar parts th roughout the several views.
The body A, the band B, and the buttonholes b constitute the main features of a turn 5 down collar, and the groove a, between the body and band of the collar, and the bevel or chamfer 0 round the back edges of the body and band of the collar, constitute the main features of our invention in applying leather in the manufacture of turn-down collars.
To manufacture a turn down collar of leather, we cut the leather to a proper shape to form the body A and the band B, and then cut a groove, 64, the entire length of the collar between the body and the band on the inside of the collar, of a proper width and depth to allow thebody of the collar to fold over upon the band in a proper manner to form a neat and comfortable turn-down collar. \Ve then chainfer or bevel the edge of the inside of the collar to prevent chafing, and to give the edges of the collar a neat and sightly appearance.
To clean leather collars, &c., we make a solution consisting of one part of oxalic acid in ten parts of water, and apply to the soiled places with a sponge or soft cloth.
Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is
As a new and useful article of manufacture,
a leather turn-down collar comprising a body,
