Y., assignor to Beatty-Page, Inc., New York, N. Y., a corpora tion of New York Application May 13, 1936, Serial No. 79,416 1 Claim. (Cil. 2--181) 'I‘his invention relates to hats, and particularly vious material. The layer 9 is provided at its to the sweat band thereof. ` The various sweat bands, known or used hereto fore, possess serious disadvantages in that they 5 fail to provide ample protection for the hat and produce irritation to the wearer, thereby causing considerable spoliation and much discomfort. These disadvantages are particularly enhanced during warm weather or in warm rooms, when 10 perspiration is increased. The principal object of my invention is to provide an improved sweat band which will rem edy the above mentioned disadvantages, and pro vide improved protection for the hat and im 15 proved comfort for the wearer. ' Other objects and advantages will hereinafter appear. o. 2 eral assemblage of the sweat band I with the hat I4, a stitching I5 is passed through the Vlatter and , through the projecting portion I2 of downhang ing hem I0 of the band, as illustrated in Figs. 1, 2, to secure the sweat band in operative state within 15 the hat. During the wearing of the hat equipped with In the accompanying drawing, this sweat band, the perspiration as soon as Fig. 1 is a fragmentary cross-sectional elevation formed at once penetrates the pervious layer 3 and is absorbed by the interior wall 2, and any dampness developing in the wall 2 is prevented from reaching the material of hat I4 by the in tervening impervious layer 9, which is thus in terposed between the hat and the other layers constituting the sweat band. There is thus max imum dryness, coolness, and comfort afforded to the wearer by this sweat band, without causing any injury or spoliation of the hat body. It will be evident that‘even in cool situations, or when of a hat body and of the sweat band of this in- vention, as it appears when assembled with the Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional elevation, on an en larged scale, showing a portion of the sweat band. Fig. 3 is a fragmentary cross-sectional elevation 25 of the sweat band in completed or assembled state, as it appears prior to its installation in the hat body. . Fig. 4 is a view showing a part of the elements 30 lower edging with a hem I0, and in the assem blage of the sweat band a stitching II is passed clear through the hem IIJ of the layer 9, the hem 5 of the layer 3, and the enveloped edging 'I of wall 2, as shown in Fig. 3, whereby upon com pletion of the assemblage of the sweat band there is provided a downhanging portion I2 of the hem I0 of layer 9 projecting below the lower terminal edge I3 of the sweat band I proper. In the gen 10 comprising the >sweat band, during assemblage. Figs. 5, 6, 7 show modifications of the inven tion. ‘ The sweat band I comprises an interior wall 2 consisting of canvas or any other similar or suit 35 able textile or material, the function of which is to lend erective body to the hat band and to act as an absorbent for the perspiration. On its inner side the wall 2 is lined with a layer 3 of textile fabric material, which will be pervious 40 to perspiration and impart smoothness and com fort ot the wearer, such -material being rayon, silk, or any other material possessing such requi site properties. The layer‘ 3 has hems 4, 5 pass ing around and enveloping the upper and lower edgings 6, 'I respectively of the wall 2. In assem blage of these parts, the edgeV of layer 3 is stitched at 8 to edge 6 of the wall 2, in the manner shown ln Fig. 4, then the material of the layer 3 is passed around the edge 6 and against the inner 50 side of wall 2 to form the hem 4, and then the hem 5 is formed, unstitohed or unattached to the wall 2, by passing the opposite edge of the layer 3 around the lower edge ‘I of wall 2. At the outer side of the wall 2 is located a layer of rubberized 55 fabric 9, or any other similar or suitable imper no perspiration whatever is formed, this hat band ' 30 by virtue of the combination of its elements will provide maximum ease, softness, and comfortable feeling to the wearer. The projection of hemmed portion I2 of impervious layer 9 below terminal edge I3 of the hat band proper and its attach ment thereat to the hat body will efficiently in sulate the hat material thereat against any damp ness or saturation that may occur at the lower terminal edge of the sweat band. According to the modification shown in Fig. 5, the interior canvas wall 2 and inner fabric 3 are firmly cemented to each other by a cementitious layer I6, as illustrated, by means of which addi tional rigidity or erective body is imparted to the sweat band. In the modiñcation shown in Figs. 6, 7, a stitch ing I'I, instead of penetrating clear through all the material like stitching' Il, does not pass through the inner textile layer 3. In the manufacture of this sweat band, the stitching I ‘I is passed through the hem Iß of layer 9, and the lower edges of layer 3 and canvas wall 2, as shown in Fig. 6. And then the attached layer 3 and wall y2 are swung upwardly and about the stitching I'I to the assembled position shown in Fig. 7, thereby 55 2 2,115,965 producing the lower hem 5 of layer 3 and creat ing a hem I8 upon wall 2. In this sweat band, therefore, any formation of perspiration upon the lower part of layer 3 is prevented from acci dentally reaching the stitching I1 or therethrough to the hat body I4, such moisture being at once absorbed by the canvas 2V thereat. Variations may be resorted to within the scope of the invention, and portions of the improve 1oY ments may be used without others. Having thus described my invention, I claim: A hat sweat band having the combination of an interior wall consisting of an absorbent material, an inner layer upon said wall for Contact with the wearer consisting of a pervious material, an outer layer upon said wall disposable against the hat consisting of an impervious material, said outer layer having its lower portion hemmed, said lower hemmed portion of said outer layer projecting below the lower edges of said wall and inner layer, and a stitching passing through said lower hemmed portion, said wall, and said inner layer. l0 LESLIE M.
