Still further the invention proposes the use of an elongated ?exible sheet of material which ex 10 tends transversely of the shoulder and back straps of a pair of suspenders for forming a single unit of the shoulder and back straps. Still further it is proposed that the top edge portion of the ?exible sheet material be provided 15 with a pair of spaced openings through which ?exible sheet material elements may be looped for securing the shoulder straps to the ?exible sheet material. As a further object of the invention it is pro 20 posed to provide a pair of closely spaced bottom openings in the bottom edge portion of the elon gated ?exible sheet material through which a . second set of ?exible sheet material elements may be looped for holding the top end of the 25 back straps in position on the elongated, ?exible sheet material. As a further object of the invention it is pro posed to construct a pair of suspenders to have the back straps spaced closely together for con 30 venient attachment to the buttons on the top edge of a pair of trousers, and to have a pair of spaced shoulder straps which are spaced from each other for convenient engagement over one’s shoulders. 35 As a still further object of the invention, it is proposed to form the top openings in adjacent lapel portions on said elongated ?exible sheet material which have their adjacent edges extend ing away from each other and forming a junc tion point at the bottom so that a means may be provided between the adjacent edges of the lapel portions for drawing them together for changing the spacing of the openings. Still further it is proposed that the adjacent edges of the lapel portions be provided with hori zontal aligned openings through which a stringer may be engaged for holding the lapel portions in their various adjusted positions. For further comprehension of the invention, 50 and of the objects and advantages thereof, ref erence will be had to the following description and accompanying drawing, and to the appended claims in which the various novel features‘ of 56 the invention are more particularly set forth. constructed according to this invention. Fig. 2 shows'the elongated ?exible sheet ma terial means per'se. , Fig. 3 is an end view looking in the direction of the line 3-3 of Fig. 2. ' > ‘ Fig. 4 is aview similar’ to a portion of Fig. 1 but showing a modi?cation of the invention. Thefour-swing suspender, according to ‘this invention, comprises shoulder straps l0 having their front ends provided with-trouser engaging - elements II. ‘A pair of back straps l2 are pro-v vided at their lower ends with'trouser engaging elements l3. An elongated ?exible sheet material means l4 extends transversely of the straps I!) and -l 2 and has a pair of widely spaced top open ings I 5 and a pair of closely spaced bottom open ings l6. Flexible sheet material elements I‘! are 20 looped through the openings I5 and I6, and are respectively secured to the upper and back ends of the back and shoulder straps. _ The shoulder straps -l 0 are provided near their front ends with elements llla of conventional con struction which permit adjustment of the length of the shoulder straps ID to permit the trousers to be properly positioned upon one’s body. The trouser engaging elements ll are provided at one of their ends with openings lla which may be ' engaged upon the buttons on the front top edge portion of a pair of trousers. The other end of these trouser engaging elements are secured to the front end of the shoulder straps Ill._ The back straps I2 are provided at their lower 3 ends with trouser engaging elements l3 which are. securely attached thereto by means of stitches Be. An opening l3b is formed in each of the trouser engaging elements to permit them: to be positioned on the buttons on the top back '40 edge portion of a pairof trousers. The elongated ?exible sheet material meansv l4 comprises a piece of leather or other sim ilar ?exible material of substantially oval shape which is provided near one of its edges with the widely spaced top openings IS. The close 1y spaced openings l6 are provided near the other edge of the material means l4 and substan tially between the openings I5. While the draw ing shows that the elongated ?exible sheet ma- 50 terial- means is of substantially oval shape, any other shape may be used. The ?exible sheet material elements I‘! have enlarged end portions I‘!a and narrow interme diate portions l'lb for conveniently attaching the 55 2,109,343 2 shoulder and back straps to the elongated ?exible sheet material means l4. Two of the ?exible elements are passed through the widely spaced top openings [5 until their narrow intermediate portions l'lb are engaged in the openings I5. Then the enlarged end portions l'la are brought together with the shoulder straps l0 engaged therebetween, and stitches l8 are provided for holding the shoulder straps in position between 10 the adjacent faces of the enlarged end portions He. The attachment of the back straps I2 is similar to the attachment of the shoulder straps H]. The ?exible sheet material elements I’! are passed through the bottom closely spaced open ings it until the narrow intermediate portions I'Eb are engaging the openings l6. Then the en larged end portions I‘!‘1 are brought together and the back straps l2 engage there-between. Stitches H! are used for holding the back straps E2 in position between the adjacent faces of the enlarged end portions Ha. - According to the modi?cation shown in Fig. 4 an elongated ?exible sheet material means I4’ is provided at its bottom edge with a pair of closely Spaced openings l6. The top edge of the ?exible sheet material means is provided with a pair of adjacent lapel portions Illa having their adjacent edges Mb extending away from each other and forming a junction point 14°‘ at the bottom of the edges lllb. The top edge of the lapel portions Ilia are provided with a pair of widely spaced top openings 15 and a means is provided for drawing the adjacent edges Mb of the lapel'portions l4“ together to different distances for changing the 4 spacing of the openings l5. uu This means com prises vertically spaced aligned openings 20 formed in the material of the elongated ?exible understood that I do not limit myself to the pre cise constructions herein disclosed and the right is reserved to all changes and modi?cations coming within the scope of the invention as de?ned in the appended claims. Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by United States Letters Patent is:— 1. A four-swing suspender, comprising shoul der straps having their front ends provided with 10 trouser engaging elements, a pair of back straps having their lower ends providedwith trouser en gaging elements, elongated ?exible sheet material means extending transversely of said straps and having a pair of widely spaced top openings and a pair of closely spaced bottom openings, ?exible sheet material elements looped through said openings and respectively secured to the upper and back ends of said back and shoulder straps, whereby said back straps are closely spaced for 20 convenient attachment of the trouser engaging elements to the back of the trousers and said shoulder straps are widely spaced for extending over one’s shoulders, said widely spaced top open~ ings being formed in adjacent lapel portions hav ing their adjacent edges extending away from each other and forming a junction point at the bottom thereof, and means for drawing said edges together to different'distances for changing the 30 spacing of said openings. 2.
