From the foregoing description read in con
junction with the accompanying drawing, it will
be apparent that the present invention provides a
new and improved vest or like garment which is
so constructed that it may be adjusted to various
20 sizes and lengths and that such result may be ac
complished in a single, inexpensive, and easy
manner.
In Figure 7 of the drawing, there is shown a
set of three collar straps 29, 30, and 3|, of pro
25 gressively different predetermined lengths and
the same being respectively termed long, regu
lar, and short sizes. Each of these collar straps
is provided with but a single buttonhole 32 adja
cent each end instead of a plurality of predeter
minedly spaced button holes l8 present in the
adjustable collar strap I1. In this embodiment
of the'invention, a vest consisting of the body
sections ll—l l similar to that shown in Figures 1
to 3 may be sold to a buyer with a set of diiferent
35 size collar straps 29, 30, and 3|. The set of collar
straps are interchangeable to suit the length of
the wearer and may be substituted one for the
other as the body measurements of a wearer may
vary. The button holes 32 of the individual straps
40 are engaged with the buttons IS in the same
manner as the selected buttonhole l8 of the
strap l1.
While I have illustrated the straps 29, 3|], and
3| as being provided with buttonholes, the same
45 may be detachably connected to the body sec
tions H--l l in the same manner as illustrated
in Figure 6, wherein snap fasteners may be sub
stituted for button and buttonholes.
