Feb. 4, 1958 Y D. J. SICKEROTT KNITTED NECKTIES Filed pt. '11
INVE OR DIETZ J. VSICKEROTT United States Patent 2,821,717 KNITTED NECKTIES Dietz J. :Sickerott, Philadelphia, Pa, assignor to Nickels and Nickels, Eric, Philadelphia, Pa., a corporation of Pennsylvania Application September 11, 1956, Serial No. 609,130 3 Claims. (Cl. 2-147) This invention relates to an improvement in neckties of the crocheted type wherein the crochet stitch formation is such that the tie as conventionally made exhibits relatively great stretchability particularly in the longitudinal direction and a tendency after some use to relax and elongate with objectionable alteration in appearance.
A principal object of the present invention is to provide a tie of this type or class which while having all of the appearance of the conventional crocheted tie will be substantially free from the tendency to objectionable elongation and will exhibit materially improved wearing properties.
Another object of the invention is to provide a tie of the stated class wherein the initial firmness or body of the fabric and its tieability will be maintained even after extended use.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a tie of the improved characteristics set forth above which may be produced without added expense.
Still another object of the invention is to provide a tie of the stated type which will lack some of the objectionable high initial bulk of the conventional crocheted tie which excessive bulk tends to interfere with the tieability of the necktie and its appearance when tied.
A further object is to provide a tie of the aforesaid improved physical and functional characteristics that is susceptible to economical production on fiat hosiery knitting machines.
The invention will be more readily understood by reference to the attached drawings wherein:
Fig. l is a view of a necktie made in accordance with my invention showing portions of both faces of the tie, and
Fig. 2 is a face View of the knitted blank from which the necktie is produced.
With reference to the drawings the necktie therein illustrated is an embodiment of my invention consisting of a flat knitted tube 1 which on one face 2 exhibits a typical open or crochet stitch of highly ornamental appearance. Departing from conventional practice, however, the opposite face 3 of the flat tube is formed substantially entirely of a plain stocking stitch fabric.
The characteristics of the two fabrics at the two faces respectively of the necktie are essentially different. The crocheted fabric is not only of relatively great bulk and thickness, but is also highly susceptible to stretch particularly in the longitudinal direction. Thus, a necktie composed entirely of the crochet fabric is characterized by a relatively high degree of extensibility. The plain stocking stitch at the opposite face of the necktie is on the other hand, a relatively compact flat stitch which is not so readily susceptible to stretching particularly in the longitudinal direction and which tends to maintain its form in and with the fabric even under substantial strain. Thus, a necktie composed of the two types of fabric in the relationship described above will partake of the properties of both types of fabric and will assume characteristics entirely different from a necktie formed entirely of either one or the other. Thus, While the appearance of the necktie on its crocheted forward face is unchanged, the tendency of the crocheted fabric to stretch is substantially neutralized by the presence of the plain stitch fabric at the back of the tie. The tie exhibits a desirable degree of bulkiness arising from the presence of the "Ice crochet stitch in the face but lacks the objectionable overbulkiness resulting from the extension of the crochet stitch across the back of the necktie in accordance with conventional practice. Also the tie has a desirable appearance of lighter weight as compared with the conventional tie of like type. This relatively light weight appearance and low bulk materially improves the functional character istics of the necktie and its neatness of appearance when tied. To be effective in affording these improved properties the plain knit fabric at the back should embrace substantially in excess of one-half the width of the necktie and preferably the entire width.
As indicated, a tie made in accordance with this invention is susceptible to economical production of fiat or full-fashioned hosiery knitting machines. The composite fabric in strips including a central panel of the crochet stitch of a width to embrace the entire face of the necktie and at each side thereof and integrally therewith a panel of lesser width of the plain stocking stitch may be produced on such machines in known manner, and the strip may be fashioned by narrowing in longitudinal areas of limited lengths by machine operation to afford in each necktie the desirable relatively narrow section which passes around the neck of the wearer under the collar. The ends of the individual necktie may be bound by overedge stitching in accordance with the usual pract1ce.
An individual tie blank is illustrated in Fig. 2 of the drawings. The crocheted central panel 4 may suitably maintain a constant width throughout the length of the blank, the narrowing in the neckband area 5 being confined to the plain knit side panels 6 and 7. Preferably the blank will terminate at its ends in a plain knit band 8 and 9 respectively, in which areas the blank is severed from the adjoining blanks. The blank thus produced is formed into the desired tubular blank by turning in the edges along the broken lines indicated at 10 and 11 so that the free longitudinal edges thereof are contiguous and seaming them together in conventional manner, the seam 12 lying centrally at the back of the tubular tie blank. The ends of the blank are then finished by the aforesaid overedge embroidery stitching indicated at 13.
1. A necktie comprising a flat knitted fabric tube whereof the longitudinal section which constitutes the face of the necktie is composed in its entirety of crochet or like stitch fabric of relatively high bulk and extensibility and the longitudinal section which constitutes the back of the necktie is composed at least in part of a plain stocking or like stitch fabric of relatively low bulk and dimensional stability, the plain stocking stitch fabric embracing at least a major part of the major width of the necktie.
2. A necktie according to claim 1 wherein the tube consists of an integral knitted strip having a centrally located longitudinal panel consisting of the crochet stitch fabric and longitudinal side panels of lesser width of the plain stitch fabric, the edges of the side panels being joined together in a seam at the back of the necktie.
3. A necktie according to claim 2 wherein the central panel of crochet stitch fabric is of uniform width throughout, and wherein each of the said side panels has a longitudinal section of lesser width between two end sections of greater width, whereby the necktie exhibits an intermediate longitudinal section of reduced width constituting a neckband.
