1 Claim. (Cl. 2-237)
This invention relates to underwear and more
particularly drawers, The object of theinvention
is to provide drawers, particularly men’s shorts,
with means at the waistband to permit the com
fortable retention thereof around the waist of
the wearer and expansion of the waist portion
thereof to compensate for movement of the
wearer permitting extension of the waistband
under normal conditions of use. The specific ad
vantages arising out of this construction will
more particularly appear from the accompanying
In the drawing, Fig. 1 represents a side eleva
tion of a pair of men’s shorts in connection with
“ which the invention is illustrated; Fig. 2 is an
enlarged View of the outside of a portion of the
drawers showing a section of the waistband
slightly extended; Fig. 3 is a section on line 3-3
of Fig. 2 and Fig. 4 is an enlarged section on line
4_4 of Fig. 1.
The shorts illustrated in the drawing com
prises two legs, a main portion, a waistband I
and a panel 2 sewn in the back of the garment to
provide fullness in the seat and through the
I extends entirely
l0 CA crotch. The waistband
around the garment and is made up of a double
thickness of material 3_4. The waistband in
tion 8 with which it cooperates. The waistband
is the substantial factor which determines the
size of the garment and the garments are cut
and made slightly smaller than the size required
by the wearer. Normally, with the elastic mein
bers released, as shown in Figs. 1 and 4, the
elastic members are not observed from the outside
of the garment, excepting for the very narrow
portion of the elastic member I0 protruding from
the slit I I to connect between the two plies of the
section 8. In the released position of the elastic
members, the two sections ‘I--B overlap, as shown
in Figs. 1 and 4 and the elastic is cut to length
so that both sections of elastic B-IIJ lie against
the inside of the waistband. The body of the
garment immediately beneath the sections 7_8
is provided with a short slit I3, which is normally
closed by an excess of material It provided in
the side of the garment, which extends from the
lower edge of the waistband down the sides of the 20
legs somewhat short of the lower edge thereof.
The excess material I4, at its top edge I5, merges
into the waistband, being aligned with the edge
of the section 3. Consequently, when the sec
tion 8 is caused to slide over the section 1, as 25
the wearer of the garment moves, the excess mate
rial permits extension of the body of the garment
along the portion where such excess is provided.
the front part of the garment is of considerable
width and of double thickness of material to
When the elastic webbing relaxes, the sections
provide a section for carrying the buttons 5 and
buttonholes 6. In other portions the garment is
'1_-8 slide over each other and the excess mate
rial again gathering. The aforementioned fea
made of a single thickness of material. The
waistband at opposite sides of the garment, in
tures of the garment, on the opposite sides there
the portion where it does not assume its greatest
C: width, is non-continuous, being provided at each
side with two overlapping portions '1_-8, each of
double thickness of material and adapted to slide
over each other. The inside portion 'I has the
end of a piece of elastic webbing 9 secured be
tween the two thicknesses of material constitut
ing the section l, the other end of the elastic
webbing being secured to the waistband proper
on the side thereof nearest the buttons 5. This
inner section of elastic 9 lies against the inside
' ply of the waistband I. The section 8 has secured
between the plies thereof the end of a piece of
elastic In, which passes through an elongated
slit II, its other end being secured to the waist
band proper at I2. It will thus be observed that
one section of elastic is positioned entirely on
the inside of the waistband while the major por
tion of the other section of elastic is also posi
tioned normally inside the waistband, one end
extending through the slit II to the outside of
55 the waistband in order to be Iattached to the sec
characteristics of but one side have been de
of, are of like construction and therefore the
Itis to be noted that the wearer’s requirements
for additional space, .at the waistband, is pro
vided by the peculiar arrangement of the waist
band construction and in the crotch and back of
the garment by the fullness therein provided by 40
the use of an inserted panel, cut to provide extra
material at such portions. This arrangement in
sures the comfortable hanging of the garment
from the Wearer’s hips without bunching or
creeping of the garments on the `wearer’s body. 45
This invention, although illustrated in connec
tion with shorts, is adaptable for use with other
forms of garments intended to cover the portion
of the human body at and below the hips, such
for instance as pajamas, running pants and 50
I claim:
In a garment, a waistband, a body portion, and
leg portions, said waistband being separated into
sections by means of a slit extending through said 55
waistband into said body portion, said sections
being permanently secured to said second section,
being lapped one upon the other to form a pleat
in said body portion, a second slit in said Waist
and a second similar elastic member being secured
to the lapped end of said second section and per
band, extending through the entire thickness of
manently secured to said first section, whereby
said waistband, adjacent the end of a first sec
substantially no portion of an elastic member is
visible from one side of said waistband in un
tion and extending through a second section, said
end of said ñrst section substantially abutting the
edges of said second slit, a substantially ñat
elastic member of single thickness secured to said
l0 end and extending through said second slit and
stretched condition, and said overlapped sections
are slidable upon one another to expose only a
small portion of an elastic member.
