This invention relates to the packaging of gar ments and has particular reference to means for holding men's shirts in condition for display to the best advantage and also against being disar b ranged while being handled. The object of my invention is to provide a sim ple, inexpensive and emcient device in the form of an attachment or container for a folded and laun dered shirt which will serve to hold the same in its 10 folded condition, and which preferably will also serve to shield the shirt against being soiled and crushed while being handled or transported. To these ends I have provided a device of the (01. 229-87) , than the front wall II) with its ?ap I5 so that its upper end portion extends somewhat beyond said ?ap B5 to support the upper portion of the shirt at the rear thereof. The back wall l I is made with a pair of closely adJacent ?nger-holes is through which?ngers of one hand may be inserted to open the tubular body structure for the reception of the shirt S which is slid thereinto by using the other hand. When the shirt is in position within the tubular 10 body structure the neck it is bent over the top of the shirt collar at the front thereof and ?ap It is folded inwardly into the collar of the shirt as shown in Fig. l, the end wings i8 conforming class described having the peculiar construction 15 set forth in the following description, the several themselves to the shape of the interior of the col 15 novel features of the invention being separately 7 lar and through their inherent resiliency and some pointed out and de?ned in the claims at the close degree of stiffness pressing against the interior of ' said collar so as to hold the same in shape and thereof. position. ‘ In the accompanying drawings: Figure 1 is a perspective view of a container wall It is made with a window opening or window showing a shirt in position within the same. Figure 2 is a front elevation of the container openings 20 through which the front of the shirt is exposedto view. To protect the front of the shirt‘ the said window openings are preferably closed by panes of thin ?exible transparent sheet material provided by a piece of Cellophane or the like 22 whose marginal portions may be cemented or otherwise fastened to the inner surface of the shown in Fig. 1. Figure Figure Figure Figure 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Fig. 2. 4 illustrates an alternative construction. 5 is a section on line 5-5 of Fig. 4. 6 shows the container of Fig. 4v with a shirt in position therein. 80 Preferably, though not essentially, the front 20 constructed in accordance with my ,invention > The embodiment of my invention illustrated in front wall I0. ’ The form of myinvention illustrated in Figs. 4,‘ Figs. 1, 2 and 3 is a ?at tubular container at- - 5 and 6 is also designed for the reception (if a tachment for a laundered and folded shirt and shirt having an attached wing collar so as to dis comprises atubular body structure made with a front wall [0 and a back wall II. This body 35 structure may conveniently be produced from a single piece of thin ?exible sheet material such as pasteboard, if the windowpane hereinafter re ferred to is omitted, said sheet being folded sharp ly as at I2 and I3 on spaced apart parallel lines 40 so that its opposite side marginal portions at the back overlap as at I4 and said overlapping por tions may be cemented or otherwise fastened to gether. play the wings of the latter and accordingly the flap I5 is connected with the upper end of the front panel ill by an elongate neck I 6’ and said 35 upper end is formed with indentures 22 at oppo site sides of, and immediately adjacent to, said neck to accommodate the wings of the shirt collar as shown in Fig. 6. Also, in this form of my invention the ?nger holes IQ of Fig. 2 are dispensed with and in lieu thereof the lower edge of the rear panel II is At its upper end the front wall I0 is provided formed with a ?nger notch or indenture IS’. The elongate neck I6’ of Figs. 4 and‘ 5 is pro 45 with an arcuate collar-supporting strip or ?ap I 5 duced in part by slitting the front panel Ill longi whose lower concaved marginal portion is hinged ly connected at its middle by a neck It with the top marginal portion of front wall I0, said hinge connection or neck being also centrally disposed 50 with respect to the opposite sides of the front wall. This ?ap I5 may conveniently be produced tudinally as at 23 which provides a pair of tabs I . by slitting the front wall I I! inwardly from its op posite sides as at l ‘I and when completed the ?ap includes as parts thereof two free end wings I8. As shown in Fig. 2 the rear wall I I is longer 24 which occupy positions under the wings of the collar of the shirt as shown in Fig. 6 and abut the collar band of the shirt so as to hold the latter against downward displacement within the tubu lar structure while the inturned ?ap I5 holds the shirt against upward displacement within said structure. ‘Thus ?ap I5 and tabs 24 co-operate to hold the shirt against displacement in either di rection. . . 65 2 2,128,421 In Fig. 1 the top portion of the front panel i0 ' wardly from its side edges and thence downward is bowed outwardly in order to insert the ?ap 45 ly at opposite sides of. its longitudinal center, within the collar of the shirt, while in Fig. 6 only forming a tongue having a. head at its upper end, and also forming a. longitudinal ‘slot and parts at the elongate neck It’ is bowed outwardly to ex tend over the top of the shirt collar. What I claim is: ‘ A shirt envelope, adapted to contain a collared shirt, said envelope comprising front and back perts,,the front part, near its upper end cut in the opposite sides of the slot adaptei to enter between the folds oi’ the ' coll'aTrI' said tongue adapted-‘to extend over the collar at its ends and said head adapted to extend within the shirt. - ALBERT LEWENBERG.
