This invention relates to new and useful im
provements in cravats or neck ties.
One object of the invention is to provide an
improved neck tie, or cravat, which is so con
5 structed that it will not twist, or get out of shape.
An important object of the invention is to pro
vide an improved neck tie which has its longi
tudinal edges reinforced, whereby the strain
caused by an ‘excessive pull on the tie is taken
the material is folded upon itself at each edge of
the face Il to form the back sections l2. The
back sections are sewed together along a central
seam I3 extending longitudinally of the back of
the tie, and suitable lining Iii is inserted between Ul
the front and back sections so formed. This is
the usual method of forming ties and is there
fore, subject to variation.
In carrying out the invention, a cord or braid
l5 is inserted within the tie along the edges there
of. This cord has a thickness slightly greater
tearing or splitting of said tie.
Another object of the invention is to provide than the material of which the tie is made and
an improved neck tie, or cravat, having means is located at the fold of the material as is clearly
for holding the tie in position around the neck . shown in Figure 3. To hold said cord in the
15 band of a collar which prevents the tie slipping edge, the front and back sections Il and I2 of
from beneath the collar; said means also serving the tie may be stitched together adjacent the

The cord extends completely around all edges

Another object of the invention is to provide an
20 improved neck tie which is reinforced and the tie. When an excessive pull is exerted on

by such cord rather than by the material of which
may be made of a single thickness of cloth, there

In the drawing, the numeral I0 designates a
tie which may be of any desired construction.
As is shown, the tie is of the usual construction,
being made of a single piece of material. The
material is of such width that the front section
or face Il of the tie is ñrst formed, after which
tie may be employed. It would be possible to sew
a flat braid on the underside of all the edges there
of. Also, it would be possible to make a tie of a
single thickness of material instead of forming the 45
front and back sections with the lining therebe
tween. This form of tie is shown in Figures 4 and
5. In such case, a section of material I8 is pro
vided and this material has its longitudinal edge
portions l'i folded back upon itself to form a hem. 50
A suitable cord ‘or other reinforcing means I8 is
inserted in the hem and it will be seen that a
tie, having all the advantages of that shown in
Figures 1 to 3 is had. In this latter form, only
a single thickness of material is used, which not 55
only results in a saving of material, but also elimi

form, only the longitudinal edges are shown as termedìate its ends, the edges of the tie are cut

may >also be similarly reinforced. However, it has
been found that the strains caused by excessive
pull are usually longitudinal, and therefore, re

It is not necessary to utilize a separate reinforc
ing cord, or braid, for it has been found that the
advantages can be obtained by merely turning
sufficient of the material back at the edge por
tions to give the en’ect of the cord.
This con
struction is clearly shown in Figure 6, wherein the
material l5 at the edge portions is »turned back,
then folded upon itself and then stitched in place,
to form the reinforced edge. This construction

edge is approximately at the point that the tie is
knotted and therefore, said uneven edges prevent
a slippage of the tie. This form may, or may not
have its longitudinal edges reinforced by the
cord or braid, as in the other forms'.
What we claim and desire to secure by Letters

1. A cravat having its opposite longitudinal
Vedges folded from end to end thereof, a reinforc
ing means located VWithin the folds from end to 15
end thereof, and stitching closely adjacent to said
reinforcing means for retaining said reinforcing
means `within the folds.
2. A cravat having its opposite longitudinal
edges folded from end to end thereof, a reinforcing 20
