Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 7, 1911.

Application filed June 29, 1909. Serial No. 505,068.-

To all whom 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS E. SOULLY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Napa, in the county of Napa and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Gloves, of which the fol lowing is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in gloves. It is especially designed for gloves of horsehide, or gloves designed for heavy work.

It consists in a novel reinforcement for the wearing parts of the gloves, and means by which it is attached to the glove.

It also comprises details of construction which will be more'fully explained by reference to the accompanying drawings, in which-- lfigure .1 is a front view of the glove. Fig. 2 1s a view showing the palm, having the reinforce applied. Fig. 3 shows a glove finger.

It isthe object of my invention'to pro-.

vide a substantial reinforce for the palms, fingers and thumbs of gloves W'hlCll are de signed for heavy work, such as handling hot ingots, and other similar labor.

As shown in the drawing, A is a glove of the ordinary construction, and 2 is the reinforce palm having extensions 2 extending up along the front of the fingers. The palm portion is carried over between the thumb and the front finger and to the rear .of the first finger, where the seam extends.

upwardly, as shown at 3, then curves outwardly toward the inner edge of the front finger,- and finally unites with the seam 4 which unites the front and back of the first finger, The fronts and backs of the fingers are stitched together on the lines as shown at 5. The reinforce finger fronts 2 are stitched to the fronts of the main fingers of the glove, as'shown at 6, these reinforce por-. t-ions substantially covering, and glrotecting the main seams 5. At the tips of t e fingers these reinforce portions are carried over beripping of seams.

tween the front and back of the finger-tips. The seams which are formed with the parts turned wrong side out, will, when the fingers are returned to their normal position, be entirely'concealed', and out of reach of injury, thus protecting that portion of the glove which is most subject to wear and The inner seam of the glove is protected by a substantially circular reinforce 7 which is cut out where the opening is made for the connection of the thumb, the upper inner portion remaining attached, so that after the thumb portion has been stitched in place this part remains as a reinforce which is then stitched upon the outside, covering the inner seam of the.

thumb and protecting it from wear.

Havin thus described my invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1s .An improved glove having a reinforce palm and a thumb reinforce, said palm rcinforce consisting of a piece having a portion conforming to the palm and having projecting portions which extend up along the front of the fingers, the palm portion being carried over between the thumb and index finger and to the rear of the latter and thence curving outwardly toward the inner edge of said index finger and being finally united with the seam that unites the front and back of said index finger; and the thumb reinforce being formed by cutting out the opening for the thumb. said portion remaining connected with the inner portion of the thumb opening and being carried outside of the inner seam of the thumb and secured to cover said inner seam.

In testimony Wherof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing wltnesses. v
