3 Claims.
This invention relates to improvements in gar
ment supporters.
One of the main objects of the invention re
sides in a garment supporter for men’s use, by
which trousers may be supported from the shirt
of the wearer, and the shirt held down to prevent
accidental creeping up of the bottom of the shirt
above the top of the trousers. By the use of a
supporter of this kind the uncomfortable effects
10 _of the wearing of Suspenders or belts is eliminated.
Another _feature of the invention is to provide a
garment supporter which provides an elastic con
nection between the shirt and trousers of a wearer
to permit yielding of the garment during the body
movements of the wearer.
A further feature of the invention is the provi
sion of a supporter composed of a pair of releas
ably connected parts, one of which parts is attach
able to the shirt andthe other to the trousers of
a wearer, whereby the parts may be easily and
quickly connected after the trousers have been
adjusted to the wearer, or the parts disconnected
to facilitate the removal of the trousers from the
A further object is the provision of a garment
supporter for the above mentioned purposes which
is entirely concealed from view when in position
uponv a wearer, and which fits flat against the
body of the wearer in a comfortable manner so as
30 not to interfere with the free body movement.
A still further object of the invention resides in
a garment supporter having the above features,
which is simple and inexpensive of construction,
and strong and durable for the purposes intended.
With these and other objects in view, the inven
tion resides in the certain novel construction,
combination and arrangement of parts, the essen
tial features of which are hereinafter fully de
scribed, are particularly pointed out in the ap
40 pended claims, and are illustrated in the accom
panying drawings, in which:

dressed in trousers 'and shirt with my garment
supporters in use thereon.

Referring to the drawings by reference char
acters, and more particularly to the preferred em
bodiment of my invention shown in Figures 1 to 7
inclusive of the drawings, the numerall I0 desig
nates a shirt attachment which includes a rela- l5
tively flat T-shaped body member II which may
be constructed of Celluloid, metal, or like compo
sition. The T-shaped body member II includes
a shank I2 and a cross head I3, the rear face of
the cross head extending beyond the plane of the 20
'rear side of the shank I2. The rear face of the
head- I 3 is provided with a recess I4 which extends
the full width of the head so as to open at opposite
ends thereof and the opposite walls of the recess
are undercut or beveled as at I5. A relatively flat 25
key member I6 is slidable into the rrecess I4 from
either end thereof for a purpose to be presently
Extending the full length of the T-shaped body
member II in the front face thereof, is a dove- 30
tailed recess I1 within which a slide member I 8 is
mounted, the lower end of the slide member eX
tending below the bottom of the shank' I2 and bent
rearwardly and upwardly to provide an eye I9
which is disposed beyondk the plane of the rear 35
side of the shank I2. Connected to the eye I9 is
one end of an elastic strap 20, the other end of
the strap being connected to an eye 2| provided
at the rear of the head I3. The elastic strap 20
is disposed rearwardly of the shank I2 and sub
stantially parallel thereto for the purpose of ex 40
erting an upward tension upon the slide member
I8, which slide member may be moved down
wardly against the tension of the elastic strap.
Extending forwardly from the slide member I8 45
adjacent the -top thereof, is an elongated T
shaped tongue 22.
Coacting with the shirt attachment I0 in a man
ner to be presently explained, is a trousers attach
ment 23 which includes a lsingle length of wire 50
bent to form a frame which includes a central
, U-shaped portion 24 from which outwardly ex
tending wing portions 25 extend, the wing por
tions being looped to provide open elongated eyes
26 into which the suspender buttons of a trousers 55
are adapted to be received. Extending trans
versely between the legs of the U-shaped portion
24 and secured thereto by welding or otherwise,
is a flat bridge piece 21, the ~same being disposed
Ul rearwardly of the plane of the U-shaped portion
as best seen in Figure '7 of the drawings.
In the front face of the body member 30 and
extending the length thereof is a recess 3|, the
side walls of which are undercut to slidably re
ceive the parallel legs 32 of a wire frame member.
The lower ends of the legs 32 are provided with
opposed outwardly extending eyes 34 which have
attached thereto the lower ends of elastic straps
`{S5-$5, the other ends of the straps extending
upwardly and connected to eyes 36-36 in the
bridge piece 21 is provided with an elongated slot
28 which extends inwardly from the bottom edge
cross head portion of the T-shaped body 30. 10
thereof and which slot is adapted to receive the
shank portion of the T-shaped tonguev 22 when
The elastic straps 35 are substantially parallel to
the shirt attachment I0 is operatively connected
to the trousers attachment 23.
In practice, three of the garment supporters

>upon the wire frame member. Extending out
may be termed a set as illustrated in Figures l' ' wardly in opposite directions from the tops of

body member 30»v is attached to the shirt of the
In the drawings, I have illustrated the picture wearer andthe trousers drawn about the waist
of a man wearing a shirt A and trousers B.
shirt lattachment' l@ is applied to the shirt A by
of the wearer and the sew on threads of the 25
placing the rear side of the head I3 of the T
shaped member il against the exterior of the
shirt 'at approximately the proper location, a
portion of the shirt fabric being seated in the
recess lli, after which the operator inserts the
key member i6 from the inside of the shirt, the
key member sliding into the recess I4, whereupon
a portion of the shirt fabric is tightly gripped
as illustrated in Figure 4. The shirt attachment
It is positioned approximately at the waist of the
wearer with the shank portion Vl2 depending
downwardly. The operator> attaches the trou
sers attachment 23 to the spaced suspender but«
buttons inserted into the eyes 38. The trousers
will therefore be yieldably supported in the same
manner as set forthin the preferred form.
While I have referred to the `supporter as being
tons C provided at the inside of the trousers at
the waist band, the sew on threads of the buttons
being received inthe open eyes 26 of the wire
frame. For comfort, the trousers attachment 23
may be slightly curved or bowed as shown in
Figure 6 to conform to the shape of the body of
the wearer. With the trousers attachment 23
in position as shown in Figure 3 of the drawings,
primarily used in conjunction with men’s shirts 30
and trousers, the same may be Aemployed by
women when wearing blouses and skirts, or for
such other purposes when it is desired to support
one garment from another. Also, any number
of supporters may be used to constitute a set, 35
althoughV I have speciñcally stated that three
constitute a set.
Whereas, I have shown and described what I
consider to- be the. most practical embodiments
it is apparent that by placing the bridge piece
21 above the tongue 22, the tongue may be
brought into interlocking engagement with the
bridge piece, and the weight of the trousers sup
ported by the yieldable slide member i8. It will
be appreciated that with the trousers yieldably
supported in this manner that sufficient »give is
provided'for the body movements of the wearer
and that theY tails of the shirt are held down
vi Cl
againstaccidental upward creeping above the
top of the trousers. When it is desired to remove
the trousers, it is only necessary to lift upwardly
upon the tops of the same so that the bridge piece
21 is disengaged from the tongue 22. Y
. From the foregoing description, it will be seen
that the shirt attachment il! is connected to the
shirt in a manner as not to tear or mutilate the
same and may be removed by withdrawing the
key member 'lli to permit laundering of» the'shirt.
-Also the trousers attachment 23 may be discon
nected from the suspender buttons C during
pressing o-r' cleaning of the trousers.
In Figures 8 to 10 inclusive, I have illustrated
ay modified form ofthe invention wherein the
shirt and trousers attachment elements are con
nected together at all times.
In this form, the
of my invention, I wish it to be understood that 40
such changes and alterations as come within the
appended claims may be resorted to if desired.
Having thus described the invention, what I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pat
ent of the United States, `is:-’ l; A garment supporter of the class described
comprising in combination, a shirt attachment

member upwardly, a trousers attachment for
connection tothe suspender buttons of trousers,
and means on said trousers attachment and slide i
