In the foot or an ordinary stocking or soci; no
account is taken of varying conformations of the
human foot except as to length. In fact, the gar
ment foot is not made ideally to conform to
5 even a standard human foot of the same length,
but rather it at 1nest merely approaches its form
as nearly as possible and the garment “i'lts'” only
because it has some ability to stretch and -oi
course the incidental stretch is not unriorm
throughout the Whole extent of the garment foot.
"When, therefore, varying shapes of human feet
have to be taken into account the ordinary stoelt
ing or socle is very likely to cause discomfort, es
pecially in walking, usually by creasing or rolling
or launching as an incident of overstretching in
some parts with little if any stretching and hence
slacliness 'in cthe ; this is of course aggravated
ir the garment
omewhat oversize in point oi
length. Usuall;
»nce the variations in form of
2li the human foot are cuite pronounced at the toe
portion, from extreme tapering to extreme stuh
biness, this condition is most likely to be experim
enced at the toe portion of the garment. Not only
is there discomfort incident to the creasing or
25 deformation of the toe portion lont such toe por»
tion presents an unsightly appearance if the garu
ment is worn with a sandal or other outside foot-1
wear which appreciahly exposes the toe portion.
The invention relates to full-fashioned hosiery
and it consists in certain improvements in hosiery
oi` 'this particular class whereby the indicated.
faults are overcome. That is, according to the
invention the toe-portion or toe-zone (usually ac=cepted and here taken to include all that portion
35 ci thegarment loot which extends from the toe
tip “nach to a transverse line at least haii-way
between such tip and a transverse plane that
will coincide with the wearer’s metatarsal arch)
ci a iull-fashioned foot garment has that segment
thereoi7 which is approximately coincident in
width with such Zone and which extends across
and over and around the wearer's toes and ter
minates'at both its ends approximately at the
longitudinal seamline knitted retlcular and being
also substantially uniformly elastic and yielding
throughout its whole extent and having all of its
yarn elements which define the holes in said seg
ment more resistant to wear throughout said
whole extent than those of the adjoining herein
defined major portion oi the garment; that is to
say, said segment is without any knit formation
that is not reticular but plain-knitted, suchl as so
called “diamond-points” (or insets or gussets),
or se'aming or other structure that would cause
55 the garment to manifest a disparate resistance to
stretching influence and so be likely to undergo
bunching or rolling actually within said segment.
in any previous foot garment having in its toe
zone a region knitted reticular such formations,
>as for instance the mentioned diamond points,
have invariably existed within the indicated seg
ment of the garment, with the mentioned faults
as incidents of their use.
î am also aware that
it has been proposed to provide the foot of a
vknitted foot garment with a narrow reticular 10
band to surround the wearer’s foot in coincidence
more or less with the metatarsal arch, but such
construction, while it may perhaps suhserve its
intended purpose of suiting the one garment
to varying foot-lengths, obviously contributes
nothing to the particular purpose that my inven
tion is intended tc accomplish.
lin the drawing,
Figs. i and 2 are, respectively, top and bottom
fragmentary plans oi the improved garment foot;
Fig. 3 is a plan of the blank from which the
garment foot as shown in Figs. l and 2 is formed.
Referring to Figs. l and 2: The toe-zone as to
width here extends from the tip of the toe to a 25
transverse plane approximately halfway between
such tip and a transverse plane which will co
incide with the wearer’s metatarsal arch when
the garment is worn. The mentioned reticular
segment of this zone is designated l and is nearly 30
as wide es such. zone and it is formed to extend
across the wearer’s toes as shown in Fig. l and
to terminate at its ends under them, as shown in
Fig. 2, such ends being here formed by straight
lines parallel to each other in the finished or
seamed foot and near and also parallel to mar-y
gins oí the foot as it exists in the blank. (Fig. 3) ,
thus leaving narrow plainwitnitted selvages at d .
in this example.
as the blank is shown in Fig. 3 its margins 40
extend parallel at il, then converge at d and then
extend parallel. again at ill to form the knit mar
gins of a plain- :nitted region which, when the
blank is searned at t and folding of said region
is eiîected on lines ii and seaming is also done
at l, leaves the toot with a plain-knitted toe
tip 5.
In the present example the region 2, hack of
the toe-zone, as well as the regions d and 5, is
knitted plain excepting that in region 2 and 50
paralleling and relatively back of the toe zone
there maybe a line of ornamental picot stitches t.
Having thus fully described my invention what
I claim is:
The herein described full-fashioned foot gar 55
ment having all that segment thereof which is
approximately coincident in width with the herein deñned toe-zone of the garment and which,
when the garment is worn, extends across and
5 lover and around the wearer’s toes and terminates
at both its ends approximately at the longitudinal
seam-line knitted reticular and being also sub=
-stantially uniformly elastic and yielding through
out its whole extent and having all of its yarn
elements which deñne the holes in said segment
more resistant to wear throughout said whole ex
tent than those of the adjoining herein defined 5
major portion of the garment.
