To all whom zit/'mrtg concern,.- v
Be it knownthat I, CASPER' B'LooMBERG, a
York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Garter- Bands, of which the following isa speciiication. z
J My invention relates,v` more particularly to garter bands of leatherfwhich are adapted to Figure I is a view of my improved banden a garter; Fig. 2 is a sectional View of the band shown in Fig. `1. Y
y The usual limb encircling band is formed of an outer facing of leather 1,and an inner facing of moisture proof material 2 secured .thereto and which is Worn next the skin.
This inner layerof moisture proof material prevents perspiration from the limb of the `wearer reaching the leather and rotting it. As moisture proof material next theA skin Awould interfere with the natural functions of the 4pores I prefer to perforate the band as Shown in the drawing at 6. This permits the waste matter from' the skin to eva orate 1vhiih wouldother wise be retained un er the A hose'engaging member 4 is secured to the l band by a short stra 3 and means for securing the `ends of the and together as shown.
at 5. l
I clail 1. A garter band composed Vof an outer facing of leather and an inner facing of moisture proof'material secured thereto, the composite band being perforated for the purposes set forth.
2. A ventilated garter comprising a strip of leather'adapted to encircle the liinbprovided with perforations for the purpose set forth, in combination with means for engag- .ing the hose and means for Securing the ends oftheband together.
. j In/testimony whereof I have affixed my 'signature in presence of. two witnesses.
