Specification of Letters Patent.
To all whom it may concern;
Be it known that 1, Lotus U. WEnoErU'ru,
a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of NewYork, have invented new and useful Improvements in Necktie Makers or Formers, of which the following is a specificati0n.
This invention relates to a necktie maker or former which allows ready, neat and smooth formation of the tie or knot and which can be made to hold the tie when completed smoothly, and snugly to the bosom or person of the wearer.
The tie maker or former consists of single branches or branches which can be made each of several )lQCQS of wire but which pieces are twisted together to form practi call a single piece for each of the branches. Of the three branches of which the article is corn osed the two lateral branches serve for tie support or knotting of the tie. The depending branch keeps the knot smooth and revents it from breaking: and is of such ength as to extend below the knot and at its lower end such depending branch carries a swinging elastic or. rubbor loop.
Such loop (luring the forming or knottinc oi the tie hangs downward or in line with the lower stem or branch so as not to interfere with the neat formation oi the tie. "When the latter is finished this elastic loop can be connected to a collar button so as to hold tho tie neatly seated on the wearer.
This invention is set forth in the Following; specification and claim and illustrated in tho annexed drawing in which2-- Figure 1 re )rescnts at perspective view of a necktie manic! or former rini'iodyiug this 40 invention. Fig. 2 shows. the necktie maker or former in use.
in this. drawing is shown a necktie nntkcr i i i i of T shape having two lateral branches or arms I) and a stem or dependim branch 0. Each branch comprises practice i a single piece of wire. It made of two pieces the same are twisted one about the other to form a single piece or branches which have no open loop and of such length as to sup wrt the u per part of the tie. The depent ing hranoli has an elastic loop m such as rubber which swings or hangs loosely from the lower end of the brancln While a tie is being formed about the maker the loop in hangs in line with the lower branch so as not to interlore with the formation. When thc tie is finished the depending branch. being of sullicicnt length projects below the knot oi the tie and the exposed loop or elastic can then be buttoned to tho coihrr button while the lateral branches situnder the collni. A neat sitting tic held (lose to the person .s thus obtained. The lateral branches can be curved to fit. the neck or to lit variou: sized collars alter the tie is made n1 finished.
What I claim isz v A neck tie maker comprising two single lateral branches of such length as to support a tie with an intornicdintc single dorm-riding branch of such length RS to oxhnd below the knot portion of the \io, and a darn nding clnstio loop at the lowor end oi the d; pond ing branch, said loop swinging loosclw so as to conic into lino with tho dcponding l ranch during the i'ornnrtior of tho tio and in nptod to boswuug up back of tho knolicd tie to cngnpc :1 collar button.
