Application April 20, 193'1, Serial No. 138.059 2 Claims. (Cl. 2-42.36) ured by the standards of present-day vogue, that This invention relates to trousers waist band construction and proposes a combination and arrangement of parts by which the wearer can adjust the trousers to have a high or low rise, the rise being the height of the trousers relative to the anatomical waist line. One of the objects of the invention is to pro vide trousers having an integrally or permanent ly attached waist band, and a superposed waist band attachable and removable from the garment at will. The lower or permanent waist band may carry belt straps, while the detachable waist band may be furnished with means for attaching the trousers with a high rise present a more dressy appearance than those with a low rise, notwith standing which there are a great many people who find it convenient and comfortable to wear 5 trousers with a high rise in connection with sus penders, but who would prefer a low rise waist band when wearing a belt. Figure 1 shows the upper, waist band 3 provided with buttons 4 on the inside for the attachment 10' of the suspenders 5, while the lower waist band 2 is provided with the belt straps 6. Just below the upper margin of the lower waist band 2 are sewn or otherwise secured the lower halves ‘I and 8 of two independent slide fasteners 9 and l6 l0. Along the lower margin of the removable a removable waist band, detachably secured to waist band 3 are the cooperating parts ii and I! the trousers by a circumferentially extending of the slide fasteners. Said slide fasteners ex tend circumferentially on either side of the slide fastening device. trousers, the keepers II, with cooperating prongs 20 A further object of the invention is the pro I3’ by which the cooperating parts of the slide vision of a removable waist band detachably se fasteners are initially brought together, being cured by independent slide fasteners each ex tending semi-circumferentially from the front to adjacent the fly opening, and the slides ll are. back and each consisting of the conventional moved rearwardly in the act of bringing the parts series of coordinating hooks, with the keeper at of the slide fasteners together.

This arrangement makes it possible to alter the girth of the garment by tak the lower parts of the slide fasteners are a little ing in at the rear seam, cutting off as much of tween the two waist bands and effectively conceals _. ' the terminal portions of the slide fasteners as may be required, without impairing the operation of the slide. Other objects of the invention will appear as the following description of a preferred and them from the outside of the garment. A flap 30 practical embodiment of the invention proceeds. In the drawing which accompanies and forms a part of the following specification and throughout the several figures of which the same characters of reference have been used to designate iden— tical parts: Figure 1 is a perspective view of trousers em 40 bodying the features of the present invention; Figure 2 is a similar view showing the upper waist band removed; ' . , Figure 3 is a front elevation of ther’upper portion of trousers illustrating the ?y< partly opened to disclose the rear construction, and showing the detachable waist band partially removed; and Figure 4 is a section taken along the line 4-4 of Figure 3. Referring now in detail to the several figures, the numeral i represents in general a pair of trousers having the customary unitary or integral 55 waist band 2 and a superposed optionally remov able waist band 3. It is generally conceded, meas below the edge of the lower waist band bring the slide fasteners below the line of separation be iii of fabric extends over the slide fasteners from the inside, concealing them. In Figure 3 the ?ap I5 is shown broken away in the middle of the trousers so that the edges l6 and H of the upper and lower waist bands are 35 visible indicating that the waist bands are entirely separable one from the other when the slide fas teners are separated. Said slide fasteners extend to a position of substantial abutment at the rear of the garment, being separated only by a very 40 small space representing the width of the hem. One of the advantages of this detachable waist band is that it may be applied or removed while the garment is being worn. It is removed by the wearer first undoing the top button or ‘5 so of the ?y, reaching around to the rear, ?rst on one side and then on the other grasping the respective slides and drawing them around to the front, thus completely unfastening-each of the slides. To replace the waiste band, it is nec- 5o essary only to place the latch in the keeper at one side of the ?y, then draw the slide to the rear, securing the parts of the slide fastener to gether, repeating this operation for the other side. Thus a man may start out wearing the 55 2 2,130,942 high rise waist band 3 with suspenders, and desiring to discard the suspenders in favor of a belt, he may detach the waistband 3 removing it fasteners extending in opposite directions cir cumferentially from adjacent points at the middle front of the trousers to adjacent points at the together with the suspenders, transferring the middle back of the trousers, the cooperating 5 garment into a low rise garment with the belt IB passing through the belt strap 6 as shown in Figure 2. The arrangement of the slide fasteners in an halves of the string pieces of said fasteners be ing secured to the respective adjacent edge por tions of said trousers and waist band with the disengageable prong and keeper of each slide independent pair with the keepers in front, per10 mits alteration of the girth of the garment to fastener at the front, whereby the slides move backward in a fastening direction, said string ner cutting off as much of the adjacent portions of the slide fastener as may be necessary to ef15 fect thisshortening in the circumference of the waist band.
