vide suspenders having combined length adjust
Various means have been employed to over
come the inconvenience associated with the don
ning and dof?ng of suspenders and the lengthen
ing of them when desired.
In some cases the
suspenders have been provided with elastic straps
which‘ may be stretched over the shoulders ‘but
this has not proved entirely satisfactory. _The 1
elastic materials of which‘ the‘ straps’ are made
readily lose their elasticity so that thestraps be
come elongated and require frequent readjust
ment for length.‘ In addition, even when, the
straps retain their elasticity there is a tendency
1 for the trousers to creep downwardly against‘the
tension of the'straps. Should the‘wearer seek
to avoid this creeping tendency, he generally suc
ceeds in achieving only an uncomfortable taut
ness.
‘
Suspenders made of straps comprising non
elastic material have the advantage of retaining
an adjustment which is once made and are gen
erally provided with a section having a degree ‘
of elasticity sufficient to afford freedom of ‘move
ment of the wearer. It is‘ particularly upon sus
20
ing and hitching means‘ by which the suspender
straps may be lengthened and positively adjusted
to an established length independent of the ad
justing means.
‘
‘
‘
Another further object of my invention is to
provide suspenders the straps of which are made
of substantially nonelastic material and which
may be quickly and conveniently placed over or
removed from the shoulder of the wearer. ‘
A still further object of my invention is to pro
vide a suspender which may be readily length
ened for lowering a suspended garment without
removing a top garment worn thereover.
This invention also has for an object the elimi
nation of the disadvantages in connection with
prior art devices of this general character.
With these and other objects in View, the in
vention consists in the construction, arrangement
. and combination of the various parts of the de
