2 Claims. (Cl. 2-42.36)

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

In the drawing which accompanies and forms a
part of the following specification and throughout
the several figures of which the same characters

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

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
