These elastic members, however, have not been
extensively used due largely to the fact that diffi
culty has been experienced heretofore in devel

and comprises a length of elastic webbing of the
oping a satisfactory construction for movably re
taining the elastic members in place between the
inner wall of the hat and sweat band.
The present invention contemplates an ex
length of webbing is secured in the hat in a ten
sioned condition between the walls of the hat
and the sweat band by sewing one longitudinal 20
edge of the webbing to the hat as at 5 while its
tremely simple but satisfactory construction for
yieldingly urging the sweat band inwardly away
from the walls of the hat to cause it comfortably
25 to embrace the head of the wearer, and resides
in a length of elastic webbing which is secured
in a hat about the sweat’band and. has one lon
gitudinal edge secured to the inner wall of the
hat in .a tensioned condition while its other edge
is drawn inwardly by the tension of the webbing
against the sweat band to exert a yielding inward
pressure against the latter.
Another feature of the present invention re
sides in the construction and arrangement where
35 by the elastic webbing takes the place of the reed
which is commonly placed in hats between the
crown and sweat band, and also whereby this
webbing may serve to form the ?nishing edge or
head which is frequently provided between the
lower edge of the sweat band and hat.
The various features of the invention will be
more‘ fully understood from the following de
scription when read in connection with the ac
desired width and degree of strength.
This
opposite edge is drawn inwardly by the tension
of the elastic to cause the free edge of the web
bing to exert a yielding inward pressure upon the
sweat band. As a result of this construction 25
the webbing 4 when secured in the hat assumes
the frusto conical construction best shown in
Fig. 3.
The ends of the length of webbing 4 are pref
erably, but not necessarily, sewed together as at 30
6 before the webbing is secured in the hat, and
in this case the diameter of the elastic band or
ring shown in Fig. 3 should be considerably less
than the diameter of the sweat band so that the
webbing will be secured. to the walls of the hat 35
under tension. As a result of this arrangement
the row of stitches 5 serves ?rmly to secure the
lower edge of the webbing in place so that it can
not shift its position bodily in the hat, while the
upper edge of the webbing is free to move in- 40
wardly and outwardly to accommodate the con
?guration and size of the head of the person
wearing the hat.
The sweat band 3 may be secured to the hat at
companying drawing illustrating good practical
45
the juncture of the brim and crown by the usual 45
‘forms thereof:
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a transverse sectional View through
a felt hat of the fedora type having the construc
5 O tion of the present invention;
Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the hat before
the sweat band has been secured therein;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the frusto
conical shape which the elastic webbing assumes
55 when secured in a hat; and
stitching l, and the elastic webbing in addi
tion to performing its primary function of yield
ingly urging the sweat band inwardly, may serve
also to replace the 'narrow strip of material
known as a reed which is frequently provided in 50
hats between the lower portion of the sweat
band and wall of the hat. It will, therefore, be
seen that this elastic webbing eliminates the
use of the usual reed.
In manufacturing hats a bead or ?nishing 55

strip has frequently been provided heretofore
between the lower edge of the sweat band and
hat to provide an ornamental line at this point.
The elastic webbing 4 employed in accordance
with the present invention may be arranged to
form an ornamental ?nishing strip at the lower
1 edge of the sweat band as will be apparent from
the modi?ed construction of Fig. 4, wherein it
will be seen that the elastic 4 is secured to the
and to form an ornamental edging or bead at
the lower edge of the sweat band.
Having thus described my invention, what I
claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
In a hat having a crown and brim that en
circle the head opening, a sweat band secured at
its lower edge to said hat to extend upwardly in
the hat opening, and means surrounding the
sweat, band and located between the inner wall
of the hat and sweat band and adapted to exert 10
10 hat by a row of stitches 8 so that its lower edge
will be exposed at a point slightly below the ' a yielding inward pressure around the sweat
edge of the sweat band which is sewed to the
hat by stitches 9 extending through the elastic
4 into the wall of the hat. When this construc
tion of Fig. 4 is employed the elastic 4 should
have a color different from that of the hat and
sweat band to increase its ornamental effect.‘
It will be seen from, the foregoing that the
elastic webbing 4 may be easily secured in a hat
to perform the objects of the present invention,
and that in addition‘ to serving to exert the de
sired inward yielding pressure upon the sweat
band, it may serve also to replace the usual reed
band at a point well above its lower edge, said
means comprisingv a length of elastic'webbing
having its ends united to form a ring that is
considerably smaller'than the periphery of said 15
head opening and having its lower edge secured
to the inner wall of the hat near the lower edge
of the sweat band in a tensioned condition while
its upper edge is held spaced therefrom by the
width ‘of the webbing and contracts about an 20
intermediate portion of said sweat band to press
this intermediate portion of the sweat band in
wardly.
