GARME-NT‘
George B. Bentz, New York, N. Y.
Application September 18, 1937, Serial No. 164,565
` 4 Claims.
(Cl. 2-85)
'I‘he invention relates to improvements in over
coats, topcoats, raincoats, capes and the like for
use by either men or women. 'With such gar
ments, when the wearer sits upon a chair, or
'ß` when removing the garment and throwing it
across the back of a chair, or even when putting
the garment on or taking it off, there is danger
of the lower front corners of said garment drag
ging upon the floor and becoming soiled, or being
stepped upon. It is to overcome such possibilities,
that the present invention has been devised, and
it provides `for lifting the lower front corners of
the garment and holding it at a safe distance
from the floor whenever advisable. The lifting is
accomplished by means of cords, tapes, small
chain's‘or the like, and for want of a better term,
any of these lifting elements may be termeda
lifting cord, it being understood, however, that
the use of this term is not intended to restrict
20 to that which is commonly known as a cord.
With the above object in view, the invention
resides in the novel subject matter hereinafter
described and claimed, description being accom
plished by reference to- the accompanying draw
ings.
Fig. 1 is a front perspective view showing one
form of the invention.
Figs. 2, 3, 4 and 5 are fragmentary elevations
showing different forms of the invention.

For illustrative purposes, a coat C is shown in
the drawings, the lower front corners of which
are denoted at L, there being ordinarily danger
of these corners dragging upon the floor under
such conditions as those above set forth. Several
forms of my improvement for overcoming this
possibility, have been shown.
. In Fig. 1, two lifting cords- IIl are provided at
the front portion of the garment, said cords be
ing connected with the coat corners L and ex
40 tending upwardly therefrom, the upper ends of
the cords being accessible for upward pulling, and
provision is made for holding said cords after
they have been pulled to lift the corner por
tions L. The pull cords >I Il are located between the
45 garment proper and the usual facings F or lining
I, throughout the greater parts of their lengths.
The upper portions of these pull cords, however,
pass through eyelets II having restricted lower
ends I2, and the cords are provided with vertically
50 spaced knots or other projections I3 for engage
ment with the restricted eyelet ends to hold said
cords when upwardly pulled to one position or
another. Small rings, knobs or the like I4 may be
secured to the upper ends of the cords to pre
vent them from dropping completely through the
eyelets I I and to be readily grasped by hand when
the coat corners are to be lifted.
l In connecting each cord II) with the coat, it is
preferable to provide said cord with a plurality of
vertically spaced cross cords I5 centrally secured m
to said cord I0 and secured at their ends to the
garment.
These cross cords have'different ex
tents of slackness, ranging from relatively little
for the lower cord to relatively great for the upper
cord. Thus when either cord I0 is pulled up
wardly, the lower cross cord will first become
tight and will consequently lift the lower extrem
ity of the coat corner, the next cross cord will
then be drawn tight and will lift the coat portion
connected therewith, and so on until the corner 15
portion of the coat is lifted to the required extent.
By providing this arrangement, there is less like
lihood of badly wrinkling the garment by holding
it in lifted position.
In Fig. 2, the pull cord I6 has its lower end 120
directly secured to the garment corner L as shown
at I'I, said pull cord being disposed throughout
the greater part of its length between the gar
ment proper and the facing F or lining I and at its
upper end extending through a button-hole, eye
let or the like I8, the cord being provided with a
plurality of vertically spaced openings or possibly
eyes I9, any one of which may be engaged with
a hook: 20 secured to the garment above said
opening I8. The openings or the like I9 are pref
erably numbered and the user soon learns which
opening is to be used to fasten the coat corners
at the desired height, according to the hazards
which are to be overcome.
In Fig. 3, the arrangement is the same as in 35
the immediately preceding figure, except that
the pull or lifting cord 2l is in the form of a
light chain, any of the links of which may be
engaged with the hook 22.
In Fig. 4, the lifting cord 23 is disposed entirely 40
at the inner side of the lining I or facing F, the
lower end of said cord being connected directly
to the coat corner as shown at 24. The upper
portion of this cord 23 passes slidably through
a strap or the like 25, and suitable provision is 45
made for holding said cord in any desired lifted
position. For illustrative purposes, button-holes
26 are shown in the cord 23, any one of said
button-holes being engageable with a button 21
secured to the garment above the strap or the
like 25.
In Fig. 5, a ring or eye 28 is secured to the coat
corner L and the lifting -cord 29 passes slidably
through said ring or eye, both ends of said lifting
cord extending upwardly at the inner side of the 55
2
2,127,763
coat lining or facing. One of these ends is directly
secured at 30 to the garment, while the other
end passes slidably through a strap or the like 3l
and is accessible for upward pulling. Suitable
provision is made for holding this end of the cord
in adjusted position, and for illustrative purposes,
to hold said corners a safe distance from the ñoor;
the greater portions of said lifting cords being
disposed between the garment proper and the
usual facings or lining thereof, the upper ends of
said cords being disposed accessibly at the inner
side of said facings or lining, said facings or lining
I show a ring 32 on the cord engageable with
being provided with openings through which said
vertically spaced hooks 33 secured to the garment.
cords pass slidably.
From the foregoing taken in connection with the
accompanying drawings, it will be seen that novel
and advantageous provision has been made to
prevent the lower front corners of
a coat or
similar garment from dragging upon the ñoor
when the user sits upon a chair with the coat
15 open, or when the garment is taken oiî and thrown
across the back of the chair, or when putting the
garment on and taking it off. While a number
of forms of construction have been shown for
illustrative purposes, it is to be understood that
20 the invention may be embodied in other forms
and that various changes may be made within
the scope of the invention as claimed. In the
forms of construction in which the pull cords are
between the garment proper and th-e facings or
r lining, the invention may be embodied in the
garment at the factory. In the forms of con
struction, however, in which the pull cords are dis
posed at the inner side of the facings or lining,
the invention may be attached readily to gar
30 ments which have already been worn or which
have been purchased Without the invention.
