1 Claim.
It is known that with double collars, particularly
stiff collars, it is di?icuit to put one’s tie on cor
rectly, whether it is a so-called “sailor-knot” tie,
or a “butterfly” bow, so that numerous “ready
I; made bow” devices and “systems” have been de
vised on which the user himself makes a knot
or bow, but which, among other inconveniences,
are generally rendered obvious, either by their
uniform stiffness, or even by their partially ap
- tn 0 parent armature.
ing drawings, given by Way of example only, and
in which:
Fig. 1 is an elevation of the new device.
Figs. 2 to 5 illustrate rings of various shapes.
Figs. 6 and 7 show a modi?cation.
Figs. 8, 9 and 10 show how a sailor knot can be
formed on the new device.
As illustrated in the drawings, the new device 1O
substantially comprises two rings a connected
by an elastic bond b.
These rings can be closed or slotted.
formed at a certain distance and often on one
shape is variable, as they can be round (Fig. 2),
side, so that for placing it correctly in position,
it is necessary to pull on the ends of the tie; but
oval (Fig. 3) , of pear shape (Fig. 4) , of yoke shape
(Fig. 5), etc. In any case, they can be provided
with a recess 0 for the bond or string b connect
soon as the knot has been tightened, it is no
20 longer possible to modify its shape and position.
Moreover, the knot having a'tendency to loosen,
user is frequently compelled to retighten it.
All these efforts strain the fabric of the tie, they
distort it and determine its rapid wear; on the
35 other hand, the collar is easily soiled or crumpled
dt Zng these operations. Finally, whether the
collar is stiif or soft, it is not unnecessary, par
ticularly in summer to add about the neck a
thickness of fabric to the two or three thicknesses
as 3 which already exist, according as the shirt is pro
vided with a collar integral with the same, or
with a removable collar.
The present invention is adapted to remedy,
for the stiff or soft double collar, to the inconven
5 iences of the “ready made” bow, of the devices
called “systems”, and also of the usual tie.
In fact, it allows the user himself to tie the
knot (sailor knot or butter?y bow, etc.) com
pletely outside the collar, and, consequently,
iii) without the least difficulty, then to easily place
it in correct and ?nal position: once adjusted,
the tie cannot become undone or get out of place.
Moreover, it has absolutely the appearance of a
normal tie perfectly tied, this constituting an es
sential advantage.
The invention substantially consists in form
ing the tie knot by means of a very simple aux
iliary device constituted by the combination of
two rings and of a resilient bond connecting them,
and adapted to be passed around the neck, be
tween the two thicknesses of the collar; the
knot is made between the two rings and the
elastic string holds this knot exactly in the right
understood, various forms of carrying the same
into practice are illustrated in the accompany
With the usual tie, even by trying to make the
knot at the crossing point of the double collar
and at its middle portion, this knot is usually
the latter, particularly under a stiff double col
lar, slides but with very great difficulty, and, as
(Cl. 2-155)
In order that the‘invention may be clearly
ing them.
The said rings are made either of metal, or of
any other material allowing the tie to easily slide. O_ o
‘The bond b can be a string or twist made of
any material, but a resilient material: rubber
ized fabric, rubber covered with a fabric or en
cased rubber, metallic spring, etc.
The rings are passed in loops (:1 at the ends of
the elastic twist b (Fig. 1), or they are freely
threaded on the twist which is closed on itself,
as shown in Fig. 6.
In the latter case, upon use, the twist is folded
back on itself, as illustrated in Fig. 7. This ar
rangement of Figs. 6 and '7 has the advantage of '
distributing the wear and strain throughout the
length of the twist, instead of concentrating them
at de?nite points.
The tie used (sailor knot or bow, etc.) is an
ordinary tie, but the part corresponding to the
neck portion is shorter than in the usual tie, to
the extent of about 10 to 20 centimeters, since
on a great part of the neck portion the tie proper
is replaced by the elastic twist. Moreover, on
the market can already be obtained, at least con
cerning the sailor knot tie, shortened ties to be
used with “systems” which are perfectly suitable
for the subject-matter of the invention.
For forming the tie knot, the tie is ?rst passed
in the rings a (Fig. 8), the short end e of the
tie extending forwardly from one of the rings,
and the long end f extending from the other
ring, the right side of the tie being on the top.
The whole is placed on the collar, as shown in
Fig. 8.
The sailor knot is made as usual, except that
the long end, after having formed the loop g
constituting the body of the knot (Fig. 9), is
passed behind the portion h which is located be 55
tween the two rings, so as to enclose this portion
h in the knot.
Fig. 9 shows the portion 2' of the long end which
covers said portion h and extends in the loop
of the tie g. Owing to this manner of tying the
tie, the new device gives the impression of a
usual tie, this constituting one of the essential
features of the present invention.
Once the knot has been made outside the col
lar, a ?rst adjustment of the neck portion can
be effected, if necessary, by pulling upon the un
der short end e, the device and the tie then oc~
cupying on the collar the position shown in Fig.
7 9. Then the device is slipped under the collar
15 9', by simultaneously using the thumb and index
of each of the two hands for slightly pulling upon
the rings and inserting them under the collar,
this being very easily effected owing to the re
siliency of the system; then, starting from each
20 ring, the thumb is moved along the twist towards
the rear portion of the collar; the twist is thus
very easily pushed under the collar. ' The tie is
then ?nally adjusted as for an ordinary tie, but
with much greater facility, as'the tie responds
25 to the slightest action of the ?ngers. By pull
ing upon the under short end e, the tension of
the twist is adjusted, and by pulling upon the
other end f, the knot is shaped to one’s desire.
The tie vonce in position appears as shown in
Fig. 10.
For removing the tie, the knot can be undone
as for an ordinary tie and tying it again when
the tie is again to be used. But it is much more
convenient to simply disengage the tie from the
35 collar by simultaneously pulling upon the rings
with‘the thumb and index of each hand, or
ready made bow was used; but, in the present
case, the knot is made by the user himself and
can be easily readjusted, with the desirable styl
ishness and according to the user’s taste.
Whether the knot is remade every time, or
whether it is maintained ready made, by means
of the device forming the'subject-matter of ‘the
invention, the time necessary for putting'on the
tie is in any case less than with all previously
existing devices. this representing an appreci 10
able saving of time.
It is particularly with the stiff double collar
that the new device is most advantageous, owing
to the difficulties encountered, as above stated,
for,causing a tie to slide under such a collar, 15
but it is to be understood that with a soft collar
the new system is applicable in the same condi
The invention is applicable not only to the
“sailor knot” tie, but also to all the other ties 20
with which a knot is made by the user himself;
if need be, ties of normal length might even be
employed by neutralizing the excess of length of
the neck portion by passing'several times be
tween the rings.
The arrangements described above are given
by way of example only, the forms, materials and
details of execution can be varied so as to adapt
themselves particularly to the various shapes of
collars and kinds of ties approved by fashion, and 30
