SHIELD FOR: GLOVES
William 0. Wells, Minneapolis, Minn., assignor to
Wells-Lamont- Smith Corporation, Minneapolis,
Minn., a corporation of Minnesota
Application February 23, 1937,. Serial. No. 127,015
4 Claims.
(01; 2-465)
This invention relates to- improvements in
gloves and has for its special object to- prolong
the life of certain. parts of the. glovejby the use
of. an anti-wear shield which-also serves as a
5 reinforcement in. the nature of a seam. insert.
The invention relates to the placement of such
a‘ shield: and seam. reinforcement in: the region
of that part’ of: the thumb. seam which is on the
palm side of the glove or which. connects a part
1 O of the thumb and a part of the palm together.
In so. far as. I. am. aware no one has provided a
seam insert in this location.
The present application is an improvement
over the structure shown in my application Serial
15 No. ‘78,089 and includes a modi?cation in which
the same insert instead of being a piece sepa
rate from the other parts of the glove, is integral
with a part which forms the outer side or sec
tion of the thumb. The invention is applied to
a form of glove in which the inner thumb sec
tion is of one piece with the palm.
'
This invention is applicable for reinforcing
gloves of any type or material but is particularly
applicable to gloves, the palms and thumbs of
which are of leather, particularly heavy duty
leather. These gloves are of the type which are
subject to particular wear in the region of junc
tion between the thumb and the palm, during
gripping. Seams of various kinds of course have
been used. but they have been of a type which did
not decrease the wear in the seam nor on thumb
and palm surfaces.
Features of the invention include all details
of construction, in addition to the broader ideas
35 of means inherent in this disclosure.
Objects, features and advantages of the in
vention will be set forth in the description of
the drawing forming a part of this application,
and in said drawing
Figure 1 is a face view of the palm side of the
glove, with the thumb fully adducted showing
‘ one form of the position of the reinforcing shield;
Figure 2 is a cross section taken on line 2—2

.
The position of the fold line or junctionpoint
between the inner thumb section and the palm
is indicated at Hi. It is understood that section
3. is cut from the palm blank and folded toward
the‘ ?ngers. It is an object, of this invention
to; provide» a seamrreinforcing: .and a palm‘ and
thumb shielding element, applied in the region
of that part of the seam near and at each side
of the fold line or junction of the inner thumb
element or section 3 with the palm. This ele
ment is indicated .at l5 and, see Figures 2 and 3,
is of one piece with the outer thumb section 4.
The element is folded upon itself as shown, and
folding is facilitated by providing a series of
slits [6 corresponding to the fold line, see Fig
ure 3.
Referring to Figures 1 and 2 it is noted that ‘
element l5 swingingly overlaps or is opposed to
the palm and thumb, and extends lengthwise of
the seam at opposite sides of the junction point
10 between the thumb and the palm. This cross
over relation is well shown in Figure 4, in which
the stitching has been torn apart to better show
the scheme.
Referring to Figure 2 the stitching is indicated
at H, and it is again noted that the shield is
folded upon itself within the seam and that the
seam stitching passes through both parts of the
fold, and through the palm, whereby three thick
nesses of material are stitched together in the
region and lengthwise at each side of the junction
or fold point ID.
This element I5 is thus shieldingly interposed
to protect against friction on the metatarsal sur
faces of the thumb and index and middle ?ngers
particularly when the thumb is adducted for pre
hensile action.
At the same time the seam is
heavily reinforced in this region.
By reference to Figure 2 it is to be noted that
the inner rounded surface 20 of the fold provides
a smooth seam at that point, when the rounded
portion is extended outwardly beyond the edge l8

The lining of the glove has been omitted, but

tion and is properly sewed to the inner portion
of the thumb and to the palm of the glove. The
reinforcement herein is applied at the inner seam

palm of the glove and the seam is continuous
across or in the region of the line of junction be
of the seam at opposite sides of the junction
point between the inner thumb section and the
palm, said shield being folded within the seam,
tween the inner thumb section and the palm.
In
so far as I am aware no one has provided any
device for the speci?c purpose herein nor any
10 device which combines seam reinforcing with
swingable ?ap structure of substantial area
adapted for an anti-wear function in relation to
contiguous working-surface portions of palm and
?nger or of thumb and palm.
I claim as my invention:
1. A glove having a thumb and palm seam
which connects, an inner thumb section of one
piece with the palm, to an outer thumb section,
and which connects said outer thumb section
20 with the palm, said outer thumb section having
an extension of one piece therewith projecting
beyond and forming part of the seam and swing
ingly overlying the palm, and extending length
wise of the seam at opposite sides of the junction

point between the inner thumb section and the
palm.
2. A glove having a thumb and palm seam
which connects, an inner thumb section ofv one
piece with the palm, to an outer thumb section,
30 and which connects said outer thumb section with
the palm, said outer thumb section having an ex
overlying the palm, and extending lengthwise
and the seam stitching being passed through
both parts of the fold and through the palm,
whereby three thicknesses of material are
stitched together in the region and lengthwise
at each side of the junction point.
3. A glove having a thumb and palm seam
which connects an outer thumb section to an
inner thumb section and to the palm, and a seam
reinforcing and palm and thumb shielding-?ap
extending lengthwise of the seam in the region
where the thumb meets the palm, said ?ap being
integral with a glove portion at one side of the
seam and projecting outwardly from the seam.
4. A glove having a thumb and palm seam
which connects an outer thumb section to an
inner thumb section and to the palm, and a rein
forcing ?ap extending lengthwise of the seam
at the junction between the thumb and the palm
and constituting a folded extension of a glove ‘
portion at one side of the seam, said ?ap pro
jecting outwardly through and beyond the seam
and being swingable into shielding overlying rela
tion with the thumb and palm,
