portion of the outer wall being attached to the
inner side of said piece below said slit and the top
edge portion of the inner wall being attached to
of thesame material as said pocket, to the bot
tom of the `pocket and which strap may be drawn
down and carried beneath the lower edge or the
piece A and suitably attached to the inner side
thereof, as by means of a snap fastener c4. One
of the members of the same snap fastener may
be employed for holding thev strap c3 up on the
rear side of the shiftable pocket when the latter
is disposed within the concealed pocket, as illus
trated in Figs. 3 and 7, where said fastener mem- Y
ber is shown as cooperating with another that is
attached to the inner wall of the shiftable pocket.
The pocket C, in the position shown in Figs. 2
and 4, may be used in the customary manner, and
should the wearer desire, he may place articles
in the concealed pocket B by lifting the pocket C
enough to gain access to pocket B through the
slit a’.
The only essential diiïerence between the above
described construction and that illustrated in
Figs, 5 to S is the inclusion of the flap D, which
is suitably connected to the piece ofk material A
along the tcp of a relatively wide slit a3, although,
for the sake of simplicity, the flap is shown in
Figs. 7 and 8 as though it were an integral part
of said piece of material. If desired, the upper
edge portion of the outer wall c2 of the shiftable
pocket may be detachably connected to the ad
jacent portion of the inner wall by a snap fastener
