This invention'relates to- coats and has for its object the production of a new and improved garment of this type and the provision of a novel method of making the same. 5 More particularly stated, this invention relates to coats made of light material, such as of?ce coats or coats which constitute a part of a “Palm Beach” suit, and has for its object the reinforcing and strengthening of the sleeve portion of the 10 coat at and near its point of juncture with the (Cl. 2-93) Figure 4 is a front view showing the two sleeve halves and. reinforcing piece‘ joined together; Figure 5 is an enlarged perspective view of a portion of the coat consisting of the body portion in the neighborhood of the sleeve and a portion. of the sleeve immediately adjacent thereto. Por tions of the sleeve structure have been broken away and portions of the sleeve and body portions are shown in section for the purpose of clearness. Figure 6 is an enlarged perspective of a frag 10 jected to normal or abnormal wearing stresses is ment of the body portion and sleeve taken along the line 6—6 of Figure 5 and showing the sleeve and body portion at the point in the operation when the sleeve and body portion are ?rst joined together and illustrates the ?rst sleeve attaching 15 the general neighborhood of the line of juncture stitching operation. between the sleeve and body portion of the coat. Numerous attempts have been made to obviate this tendency by reinforcing the coat near the showing the sleeve and body portion after the body portion of the coat. It is known that one of the points where a coat, and particularly a coat made of comparatively light material, is most likely to tear when sub ‘,0 said point. In each of these attempts the re inforcing elements have been placed either on the body side of the line of juncture between the body portion and the sleeve or at the said line of juncture. This, however, has not solved the problem for coats have continued to tear in spite of this reinforcement. I have found that the major reason for the failure of the prior workers in the art to solve the problem is because they erroneously assumed that the point of greatest 30 stress was in the body portion of the coat or at the seam and because they failed to realize that the point of greatest stress is in the front and under side of the sleeve at and near its line of juncture with the body portion of the coat beginning a little below the point designated as k in Figures 1 and 5. I have discovered that this problem can be successfully solved by reinforcing the front and. under side or underarm portion of the coat sleeve at and near its line of juncture with the 40 body portion of the coat beginning with a point at or somewhat above the point where the great est stress in fact begins. - One of the many forms which my novel con cept may take is shown in the drawings which form a part thereof and which I will now describe. In the drawings Figure 1 is a side view of a coat having my novel structure incorporated therein, portions of the sleeve and the body portion of the coat adjacent thereto have been broken away 50 for the purpose of more clearly disclosing its novel structure. Figure 2 is a front view showing the two sleeve halves before their assembly; Figure 3 is a front view of my reinforcing piece; Figure 7 is a View taken similarly to Figure 6 ?nal operation and illustrates the ?nishing or ?nal sleeve attaching or stitching operation. 20 Referring more particularly to the drawings (see Figures 1, 5, 6 and '7) reference numeral l denotes my novel coat as a unit which consists of a body portion 2, the sleeves 3 joined thereto along the line of stitching ‘I and 8, the body perspira- 25 tion shield 4, the body reinforcing strip 5, and my novel sleeve reinforcing segment 6. The lines of stitching ‘l and 8 also serve to attach the elements 4, 5 and 6 to each other as shown. The reinforc ing strip 6 may be of the same material as that coat or any material desired, but I prefer to make it of waterproofed or rubberized cloth. To make my novel coat I proceed as follows: The body portion 2 of the coat 1, the perspira tion shield 4, and the body reinforcing strip 5 are cut and assembled in the manner well known in the art. The two- sleeve halves 9 and Ill (see Figure 2) and the sleeve reinforcing shield 6 (see Figure 3) are ?rst cut. The edges ab—cd of the sleeve halves 9 and H] are lapped and joined to 40 gether by the line of stitching H. The shield 6 is then attached to the joined halves 9 and Ill near their upper edge by the line of stitching l2. (The appearance of the sleeve elements when these operations have been completed is shown in Figure 4.) The edges ef—g‘h of the sleeve halves 9 and I0 are then lapped and joined to gether by the line of stitching l3. The completed sleeve carrying the reinforcing shield 6 is now attached to the arm holes formed in the body por tion by lapping the sleeve edge l4 and the edge l5 of the reinforcing shield 6 over the edge l6 of the coat armhole and stitching along the line "I in the manner well known in the art. (The appearance of this portion at this point is shown 2 2,114,079 in Figure 6.) The lapped portion I1 is then turned in direction of the arrow l8 in the manner well known in the art and caused to assume the position shown in Figure '7 and fastened to the body portion 2 of the coat by the line of stitching 8 in the manner well known in the art. The above disclosure is to be understood as being for the purpose of illustration and not for the purpose of limitation since many changes 10 may be made in the structure here shown Without departing from the spirit of my invention. These point approximately midway of the sleeve shoul der and the armpit and terminating at approx imately the rear end point of the underarm part of said sleeve, one edge of each of said reenforc ing strips being anchored in the seam between the body portion and the sleeve, and the other edge of said second reenforcing strip being stitched to the sleeve at a substantial distance above the elbow of said sleeve. 2. In a coat construction, in combination with 10 the body portion of the coat and one of the sleeves changes may include, among other things, changes in size, shape, and the material used. It thereof, the marginal edge of the armhole mate rial of said body portion about the armpit region is for this reason that it is my desire that the 15 claims which are hereunto attached for the pur pose of de?ning my invention should be limited thereof being turned back on itself, a reenforcing strip secured to the upper edge of the inside of said sleeve about the armpit region thereof, said only by the prior art. Having described my invention what I claim as new and useful is: 1. In a coat construction, in combination with the body portion of the coat and one of the sleeves thereof, which sleeve is secured by a line of stitch ing to said body portion about the corresponding armhole, a reenforcing strip in said body portion 25 about the armhole, a second reenforcing strip extending into the sleeve from the line of juncture of the body portion and said sleeve along a line in the underarm beginning in front of the sleeve at a reenforcing strip and the corresponding portion of the sleeve being turned under themselves, the turned-under portions of the sleeve and of the reenforcing strip being housed within, the turned 20 back edge of the armhole material, and the turned-back edge of the armhole material being housed within the turned-under portion of the sleeve, and a line of stitching securing said sleeve to said body portion of the coat about the arm hole thereof .‘ JOHN JOSEPH.
