SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 791,123, dated May 30, 19 O5. Application filed October 27, 1904:. Serial No. 230,165.

I .To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HERMAN APFELBAUM, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brooklyn, New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Neckties, of which the following is a clear, full, and exact description.

My invention relates to an improvement in neckties; and my object is to provide a simple and eflcient means of fastening in place a made-up or ready-made tie.

My invention will be set forth in the claim.

In the preferred embodiment of my invention shown in the drawings, Figure 1 represents a rear view of a bow-tie. Fig. 2 shows the tie when applied to a turn-over collar and before the hook is inserted in the eye, the tie being partially turned over, soas to also show the rear-side construction illustrated in Fig. l; and Fig. 3 is a central section of a turnover collar with the tie in place, so as to show the attachment to the collar-button.

The necktie shown in the figures is in this instance a bow-tie, and has a central portion l and wider ends 2.

3 is a ribbon made partially or wholly of elastic material, which is suitably attached to the rear side of the tie. This ribbon carries at its free end a hook 4. Also attached to the rear side of the tie and hidden by the same is an eye 5. In the case of a bow-tie I preferably attach these parts tothe rear of the same by attaching the eye 5 to the other end of the ribbon 3, as shown, and then passing the ribbon underneath the fold 1, as shown.

6 is a clip, also on the real,` sideof'the tie and hidden by the same, and which has an opening 7 therein which is adapted to receive the shank l of a collar-button 9, the head thereof lying behind the sides of the portions which form the opening 7, as indicated in Fig. 3.

Diliiculty has heretofore been experienced in attaching a ready-made tie, particularly a bow-tie, to a collar of the turn-over variety, such as indicated at 8; but this may easily be done by my invention, as the elastic ribbon may be inserted between the two folds of the collar and the hook 4 caught over the edge of the front fold, as shown in Fig. 2, which will hold the tie in place until the collar is applied to the shirt. securebetween the central portion of the tie and the hook a resilient means enabling me to readily catch the h ook snugly over` the front fold of the collar and to readily catch the hook afterward. YThen all that is necessary to do is to hook the hook over the eye, when the tie will be held in place without any of its attaching means being visible from the front.

The clip 6 may also be passed over the button,

as shown in Fig. 3, to hold the tie down, if desired.

I am aware that some changes may be made in the construction of the device from those shown in the drawings, and. I therefore do not desire to belimited to the exact construction heretofore illustrated and'described.

Anecktie having means adapted for attachment between the folds of a turn-down collar preparatory to placing said collar in position upon the neckband of the shirt, said means consisting of an elastic band secured to the central portion of the tie at one end and carrying an outturned hook at its other end adapted to hook over and be resiliently held against the outer fold of the collar and an eye on the central portion with which said hook Inlay be engaged after the collarV is secured in Signed at New York, N. Y., this th day of October, 1904.
