COLLAR ATTACHMENT
Walter Gehrig, Flint, Mich.
Application April 12, 1937, Serial No. 136,383
11 Claims. (Cl. 24—88)
The present invention relates to attachments portion thereof. The adjacent terminal portion
for garment collars and garment ornaments such
as ties, and is particularly suited to be worn on
.men’s shirts and neck-ties. To simplify the
{5 speci?cation I will hereafter describe my inven-
of the pin body forms a bend 6 (Fig. ll) towards
the normal front of the collar attachment and
the intermediate portion of the pin-body also
forms a bend 1 towards said front side. The 5
tion in combination with a man’s shirt and necktie only.
‘
other terminal portion of each pin tapers off
into a point 8 (Fig. 2) and the portion of the
The object of the collar and tie attachment is
pin-body adjacent to said pointy terminal 8
to prevent the collar-tips from curling outwardly
\10 and to hold part of the neck-tie in place, thus
improving the appearance of the person wearing
the shirt and neck-tie.
,
A collar and tie attachment of ‘similar character is described in my patent application ?led
.15 August 1, 1936.
I attain the aforesaid objective by a light and
continuous pull on the collar tips by .the weight
of the hereafter described collar and tie attach-
forms a resilient bend 9 shaped like a hook or
part of a coil. The distance across the “mouth” 10
of said hook 9 is smaller than the distance across
the center of the “belly” formed by the'bend
of the pin as shown by the dotted lines and
arrows A-—A in Fig. 2
The assembling element for said pins 4 com— 15
prises resilient means such as a rubber mem
ber H3. Guards for the pointy terminals 8 of the
collar-pins are provided in the form of discs ll,
ment in the direction of a point located between
A tie holder connected to the collar attachment holds the necktie over the lower part of the collar attachment.
In the accompanying drawing wherein for the
purpose of illustration are shown preferred emv25 bodiments of my invention and wherein like
(Fig. 1) which also connects a guiding el?ment 93
for a tie-holder to the other parts of the assem
bling element. The said tie-holder consists of a
tie pin vhaving a stop-shoulder or pin head E4 on
one terminal portion thereof and tapering off 7.5
reference characters designate like parts thereof:
Figure 1 is a view of the front part of a detachable shirt-collar and of a neck-tie having my
collar and tie attachment attached to the collar
30 tips only.
Figure 2 is a front View of two members of the
assembling element and of the lower part of the
collar pins; the front point guard and the tie
holder have been removed as indicated by the
35 ‘dotted line C-—C in Figure 4.
Figure 3 illustrates a tie-pin which can be connected to the collar attachment in place of the
tie-clasp l9 shown in‘ Fig. 1.
into a P011113 all the other terminal DOI‘UOH l5
(Fig. 3) of the pin. Said pointy terminal por
tion projects to one side of the adjacent straight
part 16 of the pin body, the continuation of
which forms bends as shown in Figure 3. The 30
length of the said straight part 16 of the pin
body is about equal to the width of the strip of
metal forming the guiding element E3. The tie
pin Hi can be attached to the guiding element I3
by pressing the straight part It of the pin-body
against the spring pressed mouth ll (Fig. 4) of
the twofold strip vof resilient metal. Once the
pin-body is past said mouth ll it is free to slide
20 and below said collar-tips.
Figure 4 is a side View of one collar~pin and
40 of the assembling element and illustrates the
effect of the location of the center of gravity in
the lower portion of the collar attachment on the
position of the collar-pins. The collar attachment hangs freely on the collar pin which is
45 attached to a collar-tip shown in section.
Figure 5 is a front view of the upper part of a
man’s shirt and neck-tie equipped With my 0011a!‘
and tie attachment.
Referring to Figure l in the drawing,.the nu50 meral l designates a detachable shirt-collar
shown with a neck-tie 2.
The hereafter described collar attachment can be attached to and
detached from the collar tips 3 by means of the
collar pins 4. Each collar-pin 4 has a pin-head 5,
55 which forms a stop-shoulder on one terminal
22, which are mounted on each side of the resil
ient member H] by means of a pin or rivet 92 2.0
between the twofold metal strip for a distance
which is limited by stops formed by said mouth 40
H at one side and by the bend l8 of the metal
strip at the other side. The point l5 of the tie
pin is approximately flush with the face of the
guiding element l3 and so said face acts as a
point guard.
45
The tie-holder 19 shown in Figure 1 is of the
clasp-type and can be attached to the guiding
element l3 in place of the tie-pin It as shown in
Figure 1. The clasp type tie holder l9 consists
of a strip of resilient metal the terminal portions 50
2| of which are bent over to embrace and clasp
the neck-tie. The holder [9 shown in Figure 1
is intended to embrace the inner strand 2d of the
necketie only in a manner whereby the tie-strand
can slide longitudinally therein and thus no tie 55
2
2,123,602
holder is visible on the front sidevof the outer
strand 2 of the neck-tie.
Of course, a tie holder adapted to clasp both
strands of the neck-tie can be substituted for the
tie holder l9 shown in Figure 1.
To attach the collar attachment to the collar
tips 3 each collar pin 4 is drawn, point ?rst, and
up to the pinhead 5, through the fabric of a collar
tip. The resilient member ID of the assembling
element is then manually pressed into the re
silient hook-shaped bend 9 of each collar pin as
illustrated in Figure 2. As the belly of the hook
is wider than mouth thereof, the resilient action'
of the rubber member H] of the assembling ele
15 ment and the spring action of the metal hooks 9
has the tendency to hold the resilient member I 0
within the belly of the hook 9, thus securing the
pins to the assembling element. The pins 4 how
ever are able to rotate about the center of the
20 assembling element in a plane parallel to the face
or front of the wearer of the collar attachment,
(which is also the normal face or front side of
the collar attachment). The pins 4 can therefore
adjust themselves to any distance between collar
25
tips
The tie-pin I4 is next attached to the neck-tie
by pushing said pin, point ?rst and up to the pin
head, through both strands 2, 20 of the neck-tie
at a point somewhat below the guiding elements
and then inserting the straight part I6 of the
pin in the guiding element I3. When the wearer
of the described attachment stands or sits in nor
mal position then the tie-pin will rest on the lower
end or stop [8 of the guiding element l3 and the
35 pin head l4 will carry part of the weight of the
neck-tie, thus, to some extent, preventing the tie
knot from sliding down.
If the wearer of the collar attachment bends
back, then the tie-holder can give to the pull of
40 the neck-tie by moving toward the top of the
guiding element l3 until it comes into contact
with the upper stop or mouth I’! of the guiding
element.
Extra weight is added to the assembling element
by the weighty element 22 which also forms one
of the point-guards. As can be seen in Figure 4
the front one of the two discs or point-guards
ll, 22, is much larger than the one in the back,
to bring the center of gravity towards the front
side of the lower part of the collar attachment.
In Figure 4, one collar pin 4 and the assembling
element and tie pin I4 is shown suspending freely
from a collar tip 3. The dotted line B—B is drawn
through the'point of suspension on the upper
terminal portion of the pin 4 and through the
center of gravity of the lower portion of the col
lar attachment. The straight part of each pin
body between the bends indicated by numerals
6 and 'l are normally resting on the shirt-front if
60 the wearer of the shirt and collar attachment
stands in upright position. The said straight
part of each pin body is pressed lightly against
the shirt front by the weight of the lower portion
of the collar attachment and by the pull or pres
sure caused by the Weight of the neck-tie against
the assembling element. The said straight part
of each pin body has thus a continuous tendency
to swing into the inclined position shown in Fig
ure 4;
The wearer of the collar attachment can
70 therefore stoop‘ or bend over until the shirt front
forms an inclination approximately equal to the
inclination of said straight part of the pin body
in Figure 4, before the pin body swings away
from the shirt front.
