My invention relates to a novel and distinctive
type of mu?ier or scarf which is characterized
by the provision of a neck band adapted to be
clasped about the wearer's neck and formed or
5 faced with the scarf material, the scarf being
of the wide ?owing type and having its upper end
gathered and sewn to the neck band so as to

In the embodiment of my invention illustrated,
I take a relatively wide strip of fabric, either 10,
10 been arranged effectively to cover and protect
the wearer’s collar. and chest.
The chief object of my invention is to obtain
with a very small amount of material all of the»
advantages of the present long muffler scarfs as
15 worn by men generally for theprotection of their
collars and for added warmth in winter.
My invention further contemplates so designing
and adapting the scarf that it is available for
summer wear in place of a collar and is adapted,
20 when so worn with a jacket or coat, to enable the
wearing of a shirt to be dispensed with.
The distinguishing feature of my invention lies
woven or knitted and single or double ply ac
cording to the fabric which should be of any
character suitable for use in men’s scarfs or
mu?lers. These scarfs at the present time are
generally about four feet in length so that they. bl 6.
may be passed around the neck and then either
tied or draped so as to protect the neck opening
with their free ends caught and held in place
under the coat or overcoat.
This requires a
substantial amount of material which is generally
expensive, and the scarf as a whole is somewhat
bulky and too large to be conveniently carriedin

The objects and advantages of my improved
type of scarf will be better understood by the
following detailed description and the appended
claims, reference being had to the accompany
ing drawing which illustrates my invention in
40, its preferred embodiment only, and in which:
Fig. l is a front view showing my improved
scarf in service as a mu?ler with the neck band
clasps applied for fastening from the right hand
Fig. 2 is a detail view of the scarf elements
comprising the scarf proper and the neck band,
the latter being shown in opened-out position
with its inside face uppermost and broken away
to show the preferred manner of stitching the
50 plaited scarf and stiffening element inside the
neck band and showing the clasps ‘applied re
versely to the showing in Fig. 1 for fastening
from the left hand side.
Fig. 3 is a view corresponding to Fig. 2, show
55 ing the neck band inverted and the plaited scarf
missible, it may be formed by folding this strip 35:
upon itself to form the inner and outer plies 6 and
1, respectively, of the neck hand. These plies
are sewn together at one edge which as worn
becomes the upper edge with a suitable seam
8, but before this‘seam is completed one end of 401
the scarf section 5 is gathered in plaits and sewn
in place so when the neck band is inverted, it will
fall in plaits over what then is the top of the
neck band.
Preferably, the plaited end of the '
scarf is inserted between the neck band plies and
is secured by the same seam 8 which closes the
top of the neck band.v
The neck band has attached to its front outer
face in position to be overhungv by the scarf, one
or more snap fastener elements 9, and'the free 50
end of the neck band is provided on its inner side
with complemental clasp members II]. It is
contemplated that sufficient of these clasp mem
bers will be provided so that the neck band can be
adjustedto ?t the neck size of the wearer, the 55
number used being immaterial since they will be
concealed by the scarf. Also the neck band can
be attached so as to be fastened from either side
desired, or in any suitable way, the form shown
in Fig. 1 having the neck band projecting to
the right, instead of to the left, of the scarf,~as
shown in Figs. 2 and 3, and [therefore adapted
to be fastened from the right, whereas the scarf
of Fig. 2 must be fastened from the left.
Where it is desired tosti?en the neck band so
that the scarf will beheld ‘ up better at the
throat, a stiffening strip II is inserted in the
neck band and held in place by the stitching 18,;

therefore, that only such limitations shall be
