O., assignor, by mesne assignments, to Ready MadeNeckwear Corpo ration, a corporationof New Jersey Application September 15, 1937, Serial No. 164,071 2 Clairns. This invention relates to neckties of the type in which a knot is formed and portions of the tie are caused to slide with respect to one another in adapting the tie to the neck of the wearer. An example of such ties is the so-called “four in-hand." One of the features of the present invention is the provision of a tie structure by which a knot may be formed, and thereafter the tie may be put on and taken off without disassembly of the knot, and without creasing or rumpling visible portions of the tie. › Another feature ofthe invention resides in the construction and arrangement of parts whereby strength and convenience are assured. With these and other features as objects in view, as will appear in the course of the follow ing specification and claims, illustrativev forms of practicing the invention are set out on the 20 accornpanying drawing, in which: Fig. 1 is a View of the tie in the assembled condition in which it is worn. Figs. 2, 3 and 4 are successive diagrammatic views of fragments of tie portions, showing 'one . manner of assembling and securing the parts. Pig. V5 is an enlarged perspective View, show (CI. 2-455) _ greater than the thickness of the adjacent parts of such sections. One manner of constructing a tie of thistype is íllustrated in Figs. 2, 3 and 4. `rIn Fig. 2, the exposed portion of the tie is illus- 5 trated as formed of fabric which is folded an'd sewed to form a tube |5, the sewing being ac complished while the fabric is inside-out. A re enforcing strip IS, shorter than the length of the section to be'formed by the fabric tube |5 1'0 but of su?icient length so that a pulling of the section, during the forming of the knot or. the adjustment of the tie in the collar will be trans mitted' along the reinforcing or stiffening strip, is formed of burlap or like material capable of 1`5 resisting stretching. A fabric loop H is passed through one. section 'of the detachable fastening means E2 and its ends brought down upon the end of the reenforcing member 15, and secured ?xe'dly thereto as by the stitching |8. The fab- 20' ric tubing ` 15 is now'slipped over the detachable securing means |2 so that it laps onto the loop ll and is then secured thereto (Fig. 3) by the further stitching |9. The fabric tube |5 is now reversed orV turned right-side-out, as indicated 25 by thedotted lines 15x in Fig. 3, until the de ing a preferred manner of forming the knot in tachable securing means and a short bight por the tie. tion of the loop Il is exposed (Fig. 4). It` is preferred to complete the ?nish of the article, adjacent the detachable securing means, 30 ' Fig. 6 is va substantially horizontal view of the 30 knot, in'dicating the relationship of the succes sive layers of material. Fig. 7 is a fragmentary view corresponding to Fig. 4, of a modified manner of assembling the by a further line of stitches 20 which are ap- r plied after the parts have been brought into the position of Fig. 4. parts. As shown in Fig. 1, the tie assembly'is com prised of two sections, one of which may be 'called the knot-forming section K while the other may be called the slip section S. Each of these sections includes a portion lülc, 10s intend 40 ed to pass around Va part of the neck of the wearer, and each also includes a drop or tag section lllc, I Is which falls, in the usual manner of a four-in-hand tie, downward from the knot formed at the wearer's throat. It is usually pre 45 ferred to have the tag section Illc wider than the section I Is, so that it substantially covers and conceals the other while worn. At the ends of the neck sections I?lc, IOs, these 50 are provided with detachable connections |2 which are íllustrated as being of hook-and-eye type, and are preferably formed of non-corrosive sheet metal and to have a width not greater than the adjacent ends of the sections lok, |0s, and having a thickness which is not substantially - It will be understoo'd that the two sections may be formed in the same general manner, ex cept that one section receives-the eye portion IZ'e ni? of 'the` íllustrated detachable securing means; wh?ile the other section receives the hook portion |2 . ` It is preferred to vend the ties with the knots 40 preformed therein, as a particular form of knot ' has been found advantageous in permitting the proper slipping and adjustment of the sections While being applied around the neck. This knot is íllustrated in Figs. 1, 5 and 6. To form it, the 45 neck section IOs of the slip portion of the neck tie is held substantially straight, and the knot portion of the tie is passed around it, to form a ?rst turn 26k, and then passed a second time around the turn 20k already formed to provide 50 the exposed facing layer 2|7c, and then brought beneath and behind the section His; and then over this section and downward in front of the slip portion S, so that the upper portion of the tag end | lk which is present within the layers 55 2.. 20k, 21k embraces or substantially surrounds (Fig. 6) the slip portion of the tie, within the knot, while the tag end lllc is brought downward in the usual manner. The portion of the knot Ul section Ilk which is located within the knot layers 26k, 2|7c, is then conformed so that it ?ts smoothly around the slip section within the said layers, and then the parts are drawn tight to give a form to the knot as indicated in Fig. 1. This positioning of the wider knot section lllc to embrace the slip section permits easy slippage of the parts relative to one another during ad justment, and avoids the use of such stresses as would wrinkle or distort the knot; and Vyet as sures a su?lciency of friction to prevent acci dental slippage at the knot while the tie is being worn. In the modified form of constructionV shown in Fig. '7, the loop l'lm is placed externally over the 20 fabric tubing E5 while the latter is right-side-out, and surrounds the reenforcing member |6. The parts are then secured by stitches 18m which fixedly connect the loop l'?-'m with the reenforc ing member E5, so that the stresses during ad-l justment of the tie are transmitted through the reenforcing member, as before, without strain ing and causing puckering or wrinkling in the outer tubular fabric section l5. It will be noted that the form of Fíg. '7 may be 30 made by Cutting a normal four-in-hand tie and applying the loops Hm to the ends thereof. The assembled tie can be put on and worn with a soft collar by raising the collar band and passing the sections His, Iük: around the neck and engaging the detachable securing means |2 at the back of the neck. The collar band is then turned down and adjusted to proper position; and by a light upward pressure upon the knot and a downward pull on the tag end i IS, the proper ad 40 ;Eustment of length is e?ected, and likewise a dis placement of the knot to one side or the other will properly center it at the break of the collar. The tie may be removed by pulling the knot downward to afford slack in the neck section, 45 whereupon the detachable securing means IZ may be separated and the tie removed. It will be noted that it is unnecessary to release the knot for this purpose. If the tie becomes soiled, however, it is possible 50 to open the knot and clean the tie, and then re the reenforcing member may be dispensed with if the fabric itself is resistant to stretching. It is obvious that further changes may be made in the practice of the invention without depart ing from the scope of the appended claims. I claim: 1. A necktie comprising two Sections, each of which is comprised externally of a tubular struc ture'of dress fabric and has a non-stretching in ternal reinforcing member, one said section be 10 ing constructed and arranged to be looped around the other for forming the tie knot and for per mitting the other to slide relativelyA in the knot, detachable connecting means for joining the sec tions, the dress fabric tubes being turned inward 15 at the connectable ends of the Sections and the connecting means including flexible securing members which passrwithin said inturned por tions of the fabric, and means for each section for ?xedly securing the fabric, reinforcing mem 20 ber and securing member together, said internal reinforcing members extending from the detach able connecting means toward the end of the cor responding section for a distance su?icient to .ex tend through the knot and sliding portions and 25 permit engagement thereof when the dress fabric tubes are grasped for exerting pulls'along the lengths of the sections, whereby the reinforcing members are effective to prevent stresses in the dress fabric material. 30 2. As an article of manufacture, a pre-tied necktie comprising first and second Sections hav ing external dress fabric members of tubular form, said Sections each including an internal stiffening member for resisting stretching of the 35 section during pulls therealong, each section hav ing'tying and neck portions, interengaging de tachable fastening means at the ends of the neck portions for transferring pulls between the sec tions without stretching when said means are en incident to effecting release or connection of said detachable fastening means and the adjustment of the knot on the wearer's collar, said stiffening members being ?xedly connected to the fastening means and'extending from the fastening means form the knot either before applying the tie, or upon the neck of the wearer after the detachable securing means have been previously engaged. It will be noted that the tie Vmay be made of and within the dress fabric members to points substantially below the knot for transmítting pulls along the lengths of the sections independ ently of the dress fabric members during the ad various fabrics or combinations of fabrics, such as justment of the knot on the wearefs collar. silk, cotton, woolen, arti?cial silk, or the like, which may be simple or lined fabrics; and that 40 gaged together, thertying portion of one section having a knot formed therein, said knot embrac ing the tying portion of the other section and being slidable therealong without deformation of the knot for permitting the formation of slack 45 i HARRY KAI-IN.
