HAT OR CAP.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Sept. 22. 1908.
Application filed January 11, 1907. Serial No. 351,875.
To whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, IssAK SEITZMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in thd county of New York, State of :New York, have invented new and usefulv Improvements in Hats or Caps, of which the following is a specification.
This in ention provides means by which an ear anc neck protector as also an eye pro' tector can be readily attached to a hat or cap without disfiguring the exterior of the article.
This invention is set forth in theiollowing specification and claim and illustrated in he annexed drawing, in which:
Figure 1 is a sectional view of aJ-cap embodying this invention, the protectors being applied. Fig. 2 shows the article with the protectors removed. Fig. 3 shows a neck and ear protector. Fig. 4 shows an eye pro tector. Fig. 5 shows a modification. Fig. 6 shows an under view of Fig. 5. Fig. 7 shows a further modification. Fig. 8 shows parts in a different position than in Fig. 7. Fig. 9
shows the fasteners protected under a sweat band 01' fold thereof.
In this drawing is shown a cap the outer cloth of which is shown at a and. the sweat band at b. This sweat band. is shown with attachments c of suitable kind as for example glove fastener or snap button parts or sockets. The sweat band provided with attachnients allows connecting of protectors.
An ear and neck portion is shown at The attaclnnei'its on the protector engaging those of the sweatband the protector can be attached or removed as required. An eye protector c can also be applied. The attach: mcnts can be applied at about the center line of the sweat band (Fig. 1) or below such line (Fig. 5).
In Fig. 7 the attachment is shown connected to the top of the sweat band by means of a flexible strip f connected to the top or upper edge of the sweat band. Such strip can be of suitable width and when-not used to support or attach a protector can. be
. turned or folded to be out of use or out of the protector to come down far enough to protect the ears. The upper edge part of the lining could be left loose to a certain extent so that the attachment strip when out of use can be not only folded up but turned back or tucked behind the sweat band between the latter and the body of the article. The strip can be sewed into place in flat or single thickness so as not to add to the thickness of the sweat band or diminish the size of the cap.
The eye shield can be attached or sewed to either side of the band and can be attached with suitable attachments as fastener studs or eyelets in the center. The eye shield can be of suitable shape, concave, plane or other form and can be covered with cloth or material comfortable to the touch and ha ving a suitable sight opening out o ;j--tl1ereon. The eye shield can be detachabiy or otherwise connectml to a strip connected to a 'r'orehead protector. Said eye shield can be turned into the band or cap when not in use on the plan of the protector of U. S. Patent Dinner No. 952,453, of Nov. 7, 1886, and the buttons can be concealed by a cover strip or. flap.
A flap piece to which the shield can be attached and which can be turned'in and out on the plan of the Dinner patent is shown in Fig. 2.
T he concealment of the buttons by a cover strip or flap is shown in Fig. 9.
In Fig. 9 the sweat band is shown doubledand the fasteners are protected under the fold but can be reached to attach or remove the protector (Z or shield e.
The eye glass when not in use can be slipped into a pocketdn a suitable place in the cap or iining or under the band.
The protector d can be one continuous piece entirely about the neck or made in sections.
1. A cap having the sweat band secured thereto and provided with attachments'for detachably connecting an ear and neck protector and an eye protector.
2. A cap having the sweat band provided on its-face with attachments for connecting an ear and neck rotector and an eye protector, said attac ments being at the upper part of the sweat band.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses. Y
