Description:

This invention relates to necktie packages. It is particularly directed to a wrapper for four-inhand neckties for shipment and the like purposes.

An object of this invention is to provide a tie package of the character described, in which the ties cannot shift or slip, the construction being such that creasing or soiling of the ties is effectively prevented, and comprising a wrapper for the ties which adjusts itself to all thicknesses of fabrics, thus holding the ties snugly and securely.

A further object of this invention is to provide a compact and attractive tie package of the character described, which shall be relatively inexpensive to manufacture, simple to assemble and wrap and which shall nevertheless be practical and efficient to a high degree in use.

This application is an improvement over the patent granted to me on "Necktie wrapper", on March 12, 1935, #1,994,382.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements, and arrangement of parts which will be exemplifled in the construction hereinafter described, and of which the scope of application will be indicated in the following claim.

In the accompanying drawing, in which is shown one of the various possible illustrative embodiments of this invention, Fig. 1 is a top plan view of a wrapper embodying the invention laid out flat; Fig. 2 is a top plan view of a tie package embodying the invention; Fig. 3 is a longitudinal cross-sectional view through the package shown in Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 2; Fig. 5 is a top plan view of the wrapper band 49 forming part of my improved package; and Fig. 6 is a partial top plan view of my improved package illustrating a modified form thereof.

Referring now in detail to the drawing, 10 designates a tie package embodying the invention and comprising generally a wrapper 1I wrapped around a plurality of ties 3 and held in wrapped condition by a band 14. The wrapper 11 comprises a relatively stiff elongated member 15 of cardboard or other suitable sheet or thin material and generally of sustantially triangular shape.

The member 15 has substantially the shape of the wider half of a four-in-hand tie, having inclined side edges 16 and 17, a relatively wide base edge 18 at one end and a relatively narrow edge 19 parallel to the base edge at the other end., Pasted to the side edge 16 of said member 15, is one edge of a soft or flexible sheet 20 of translucent or transparent material, such as cellophane, glassine or waxed paper. The edge of the sheet 28 which is adhered to said edge 16, is substantially co-extensive therewith and is sufficiently wide to be wrapped entirely around the opposite sides of the member 15 and yet have an extending flap. Thus, the edge 22 of the sheet 20 adjacent the edge 18 is somewhat more than twice the length of said edge 18. The edge 22 of the sheet 20 adjacent the edge 19 is preferably substantially three times the length of said edge 19. A plurality of superimposed four-in-hand ties 13 may be folded over the stiff sheet or memher 15 with the mid-portions of the ties around the edge 19. The wider portion of the ties is preferably on the under-side of the sheet 15 and the narrower ends on the upper side of the sheet 15. After the ties have been folded over the sheet 15, the sheet 20 is wrapped around the folded ties, said sheet being folded entirely around said ties and having flap 26 on the upper side or above the narrower ends of the ties. After the ties have been thus wrapped, the band 14 may be applied thereto. Said band comprises a strip of heavy paper or other suitable sheet material and may be of generally arcuate shape, or have the outer ends inclined to one another and symmetrically disposed about the middle of the band. As shown in the drawing said strip has an inner-curved edge 30 and an outer concentric edge 3!. At one end thereof, the strip 14 has a radial edge 32, and at the other end thereof a head portion 33 interconnected to the body of said band by a neck portion 34. Adjacent the edge 32 thereof, the strip 14 is formed with a slit 35 adapted to receive the head 33 for connecting the ends of the strip. The outer ends of the band 14 are preferably folded inwardly and the head 33 inserted through the slit 35 so as to be hidden from view, to form a continuous band. When the band 14 is thus folded, the folded side edges thereof will be inclined to one another. The band may then be placed on the wrapped ties and moved from the narrower end to the wider end until the band firmly grips the package.

In Fig. 6 a paster 40 pasted over the flap 26 and the adjacent portion of the wrapper is substituted for the band 14. It will thus be seen that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiments above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent: A tie package for a plurality of neckties comprising an elongated stiff sheet supporting and retaining member corresponding in taper to the taper of a plurality of neckties folded in half and placed thereover, said ties folded at an intermediate portion thereof about the smaller end edge of said member and contacting the opposite faces of the latter and extending toward the opposite larger end edge of said sheet member, a flexible, translucent sheet secured to and extending laterally from a side edge of said member and of a size to fully and tightly wrap said folded ties, said translucent member encircling said supporting and retaining member and ties on both side faces thereof and forming an additional overlapping edge portion, and means for holding said wrapped sheet in a wrapped condition.
