Le Coney, Bedford, Mass., assigner to Shepherd Worsted Mills, Newton, Mass., a trust of Massachusetts Application December 19, 1936, Serial No. 116,748 2 Claims. This invention relates to combination garments and more particularly to the combination of a coat sweeter and a front panel or shield. (Cl. 2--92) Support the panel in proper position on the front of the body. In Figure 4, there is shown a modified form of The principal object oi the invention is the neck band 3i, which, when the panel is made of 5 provision of a panel or shield adapted to cover to be fastened to the front of the body for after. prot-ceti î- ;V that portion of the body when a sweater is worn unbuttoned and knitted with in material, one piece. mayIn be such knitted case, integral the natural opened in the front. 10 Another object is the provision of means for fastening the panel to the front of the body ich will not canse the panel to stretch trans 15 thoreby, detract from its appearance. Other otiects of the invention will be set forth hereinafter. ivry invention contemplates the provision of a panel or shield for covering the front portion of tlc". body, and adapted to be fastened `to the body :l to be worn underneath and in conjunction with a coat sweater for permitting the sweater to be :vorn nnbuttoned and open in -iront when desired. When the sweater is so worn, the panel aifords full protection to the front of the body, 25 and when made of the same material as the sweater, it enha f_ces the attractive appearance of the costume. In the accompanying drawing illustrating one embodiment of my invention, Figure l is a 30 front View of a person wearing a garment made in accordance therewith, comprising a coat sweater in opened position and a panel fastened to the front of the body and partially exposed by the open sweater; 2 is a front view of the panel; 35 Fig. 3 is a rear view of the panel; and Fig. ¿i is a front view of the upper portion of the panel with a modified form of collar. Referring to the drawing, lil designates a coat 40 sweater of ordinary and well-known construction, and i2 a panel or shield. The sweater is prefer ably provided with sleeves Hl and the front flaps are finished with edge bands it, one carrying but tons it and the button-holes 2li for bnttoning the 45 two iiaps together down the front. The panel or shield l2 approximates. a rectangular form of a elasticity of the knitted material permits the neel: band to stretch sufficiently to be pulled over the head when the panel is arranged on ‘the body of the wearer. For fastening the panel to the body, it is pro vided at approximately the waist line with a transverse band of tape or other suitable non~ stretchable material, the ends of which are sof ñciently long to go around the body and to be tied together at the back to hold the panel close to the front of the body. Preferably, the band 32 is secured to the inner face of panel by lines of edge stitching and this is done while the panel in normal unstre'tched condition. This pre vents stretching of the panel when it is fastened tc the body by tying the ends of the band 32 at the back, which stretching detracts from the ap pearance of the panel. Preferably, the coat sweater and panel are made 25 of knitted or loosely woven material of matched color and pattern, but, if desired, they may be different from each other in one or both of these respects. The coat sweater may vary in style and may button partially or entirely up the front. In use, the panel is first arranged on the front of the body with the neck band around the neck of the wearer and is fastened thereto by tying to. gether the ends of the band at the waist. The coat sweater is then put on. If the sweater but tons only part way up the front of the body, as many styles do, the panel serves as a neck piece, but when the sweater is left unbuttoned, it serves as a panel to fill in the space between the front flaps with the same color and texture as the 40 sweater and thereby enhances the neatness and attractiveness of the wearer’s appearance. It is to be understood that my invention is not to be limited to the exact form herein shown and described, since it may be embodied in other forms within the purview of the following claims. What I claim is: length slightly less than the length of the sweater ' l. A one-piece panel or shield of knitted man with which it is to be worn and of a width suf ficient to cover the front portion of the body. The teria] adapted to be worn with and under a coat sweater of similar material for covering the front V 50 upper end is formed with its two side edges 22 converging in an upward direction to t-he neck of the body of the wearer and having’ a neck band for supporting it in proper position on the body line where it is provided with a neck band it, the two ends of which are provided with fastening and having a non-stretchable tape band stitched to its inner face transversely thereof at approxi means such as complementary snap fasteners 2B mately the Waist line, said tape having extensible and 3l! for securing the band around the neck to 55 2 2,106,102 ends adapted to be tied together at the back of the body for holding said panel in unstretched posi tion on the front of the body. ' 2. A one-piece knitted panel or shield adapted. to be worn with and under a coat sweater of simi lar material for covering the front of the body of the wearer, said panel or shield being approxi mately the same length as said sweater and hav ing an endless neck band for supporting it in proper position, said neck band being knitted in tegral with said panel permitting it to be drawn over the head, and a non-stretchable tape band stitched to the inner face of the panel transverse ly thereof at approximately the waist line, said Ul band having extensible ends adapted to be tied together at the back of the body for fastening said panel thereto.
