More specifically, this invention relates to a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist, which is improved an appearance of a pair of trousers making a waist size stretchable such as trousers including a pair of suit trousers and a pair of cotton trousers, a skirt, culottes and the like, which may be hereafter referred to as “a pair of trousers”.

2. Description of the Related Art

Generally, a size of a belt part of ready-made trousers such as a pair of trousers and the like is set at prescribed intervals, for example, as 69 cm, 72 cm and 75 cm. Purchasers choose one closest to own belt size to buy and adjust it to own belt size or set it right with a leather belt and the like to wear. However, there is a problem that a modification is required in case of adjusting the belt size, thereby taking time and cost. And in case of setting the belt size right with the leather belt and the like, there is another problem that it brings on wrinkles on the belt part of the pair of trousers and the like, which is not preferred as a design and moreover, a comfort when wearing is also inferior.

Consequently, it is known the technical advantages of the inventions disclosed in Japanese Patent Publication No. 2578079 and Japanese Patent Publication No. 2518804 according to an invention of this inventor as assuming these problems are solved. That is, an elastic material such as a rubber and the like is placed in a part of a lateral side and a front side of the belt part of the pair of trousers and the like so as to make the belt size stretchable with this elastic material. Moreover, this inventor improved these patented inventions and invented a stretchable structure on a waist size of a garment which is capable of a smooth stretch while improving its appearance even when widening a gap which is formed for expansion and contraction. This inventor applied for a patent on this invention and obtains the patent that is described in Japanese Patent Publication No. 3964595.

According to an invention described in the Japanese Patent Publication No. 3964595, with an elastic force of a primary elastic material, an elongating part which is inserted into a storing part contacts only with a storing part lining, thereby lowering its contact resistance and being capable of a smooth movement of the storing part and the elongating part. Besides, the storing part lining is attached inside of the storing part seen from upper and rear sides of the storing part, therefore, it never tarnishes its product image by an interlining of the waist part comes in sight and the like.

However, in the technique described in the Japanese Patent Publication No. 3964595, more than a pair of tuck is attached so as not to get wrinkles on a front body by following the movement of the elongating part and the storing part. A turnoff portion of the tuck can be seen from an outside, therefore, there is a problem that it is obvious that the tuck is opened and closed as the waist size of the garment including the pair of trousers becomes elastic, which spoils a beauty.

As a result, an object of this invention is to provide a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist that can certainly prevent from getting wrinkles and the like on upper parts of a front body and a back body of the pair of trousers and yet improve an appearance so as to make a tuck and an opening end of a storing part unnoticeable while making it possible to enhance its productivity.

First Embodiment

First, a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to a first embodiment of the invention is described referring to FIG. 1 to FIG. 4.

FIG. 1a is a front view showing a whole structure of a pair of suit trousers as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to a first embodiment of the invention. FIG. 1b is a partially enlarged drawing that a part close to an overlapped portion of a belt part is enlarged to show. FIG. 1c is a partially enlarged drawing showing a condition that it elongates around the waist. FIG. 2 is a part development view showing a structure in process of sewing a principal part of the pair of trousers stretchable around the waist according to the first embodiment of the invention seen from an upper side. FIG. 3a, 3b, 3c and 3d are part development views, respectively, showing an interlining is attached to a rear side of a crease of a tuck or close to the rear side of the crease of the tuck. FIGS. 4a, 4b and 4c are part development views showing structures in process of sewing a rear side of the principal part of the pair of trousers stretchable around the waist according to the first embodiment of the invention.

As shown in FIG. 1a, a pair of suit trousers 1 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the first embodiment of the invention has waist pockets 2 of one pair of right and left near side lines LS and RS of a front body 4. A tuck 5 is attached to each of upper ends of side lines LS and RS which are located at back ends of the waist pockets 2. Near the tucks 5, this pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention has a structure that is stretchable around the waist, which makes an apparent length of a belt part 3 stretchable.

More specifically, in the belt part 3, an overlapped portion made by a storing part 3A and an elongating part 3B which is inserted into the storing part 3A is formed near each of upper ends of side lines LS and RS of the front body 4. An end of the elongating part 3B and the storing part 3A are joined in the storing part 3A with an elastic tape as a primary elastic material, thereby making the apparent length of the belt part 3 stretchable. And in accordance with stretching of the belt part 3, tucks 5 which are attached to upper ends of side lines LS and RS are opened and closed.

Hereby, in case a pull force is not applied to the belt part 3, as shown in FIG. 1b, tucks 5 are closed and correspond with side lines LS and RS. And also, side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3. In case the pull force is applied to the belt part 3 so as to elongate around the waist, as shown in FIG. 1c, tucks 5 are opened and extended lines of side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3.

Moreover, as shown in FIG. 1b, belt loops 7 are attached to the belt part 3 so as to cover opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3. In addition, a filler cloth 6 made of a common wool fabric with the front body 4 is sewn on a portion where is visible from an outside of a sackcloth for waist pockets 2 of one pair of right and left so that the sackcloth for waist pockets 2 is not visible from an upper side.

Furthermore, as shown in FIGS. 1b and 1c, belt cloth stitches 3a and 3b are given to upper and lower ends of the storing part 3A and the elongating part 3B. It is general to give such belt cloth stitches 3a and 3b in casual trousers including a pair of jeans and a pair of cotton trousers. However, there is a possibility that any belt cloth stitch is not given in formal trousers such as the pair of suit trousers 1 and the like according to the first embodiment of the invention. In FIG. 2 to FIG. 4, FIG. 6 and FIG. 7 described hereinafter, in order to make the drawings easy to see, illustrations of the belt cloth stitches are to be omitted here.

Next, a method of forming the tuck 5 in the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention is described referring to FIG. 2. FIG. 2 is a drawing that a part close to the left waist pocket is enlarged to show.

As shown in FIG. 2, the left side line LS is formed by joining the front body 4 and a back body 9, however, an upper end of the front body 4 forms an outer edge 2A of the waist pocket 2 apart from the side line LS and then a pocket sackcloth 8 for the waist pocket 2 is sewn on a rear side of the upper end of the front body 4. Also, an end of the pocket sackcloth 8 with the filler cloth 6 sewn on is joined on the back body 9 so as to form the upper part of the left side line LS. And moreover, the tuck 5 is formed by folding down upper ends of the pocket sackcloth 8 and the filler cloth 6.

Here, as shown in FIG. 3, interlinings 14, 14A, 14B and 14C are attached to a rear side of a crease 5a or close to the rear side of the crease 5a of the tuck 5 in advance respectively, before folding down the crease 5a. Hereby, it can prevent the crease 5a of the tuck 5, which is easy to widen when wearing, from widening by making the crease 5a easy to open and it can certainly prevent the appearance from impairing when the tuck 5 is opened. Particularly, as shown in FIG. 3d, it is more effective to attach the interlining 14C to the neighborhood apart from the crease 5a which is located on the rear side of the crease 5a of the tuck 5.

As shown in FIG. 2, a belt cloth 3Aa which comprises the storing part 3A and a belt cloth 3Ba which comprises the elongating part 3B are sewn on upper parts of the front body 4 and the back body 9 so that an opening end 3Ab of the storing part are located on an extension of the side line LS. In addition, the belt cloth 3Aa which comprises the storing part 3A is a common wool fabric with the front body 4 and the back body 9 of the pair of suit trousers 1. The belt cloth 3Ba which comprises the elongating part 3B is also the common wool fabric with the front body 4 and the back body 9 of the pair of suit trousers 1.

Thus, the tuck 5 is formed along the left side line LS and similarly, another tuck 5 is also formed near the right waist pocket 2 along the right side line RS. As described above, in the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention, principal parts are concentrated close to right and left side lines LS and RS, therefore, the number of sewing is reduced and production efficiency is enhanced.

Next, the structure that is stretchable around the waist is described referring to FIG. 4. FIG. 4 is a drawing showing a neighborhood of the left waist pocket 2 seen from the rear side of the pair of suit trousers 1. As shown in FIG. 4a, a soft core SC and a hard core HC as an interlining are attached inside of the storing part 3A and the elongating part 3B by pressing with an iron and then, a wide elastic tape 10 as a primary elastic material is sewn between the storing part 3A and the elongating part 3B.

Here, as shown in FIGS. 4a and 4b, both sides of the end 3Ab of the storing part 3A are nearly perpendicular to a longitudinal direction of the belt part 3. Also, in order to enhance a slide of the elongating part 3B, an adhesive cloth 13 made of polyester cloth as a cloth which is not elasticized is attached to an inner side near an opening portion of the belt cloth 3Aa which comprises the storing part 3A by pressing with an iron from above the soft core SC and the hard core HC.

The end of the elongating part 3B and the inner side of the storing part 3A are joined in the storing part 3A with the wide elastic tape 10 as a primary elastic material. And moreover, a belt-like stretch stopper 11 made of a cloth which is not elasticized is sewn on the elastic tape 10, therefore, even if the pull force is applied to the elastic tape 10, it can stretch only up to a length that the stretch stopper 11 is folded up.

More specifically, a maximum stretch length of the elastic tape 10 is defined by the stretch stopper 11, thereby preventing the elastic tape 10 from excessively stretching and giving the elastic rape 10 a longer life. An action of the stretch stopper 11 on the elastic tape 10 is exactly equal to each of the embodiments hereinafter also and the stretch length around the waist in each of the embodiments is determined by the length that the stretch stopper 11 is folded up. In addition, in the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention, it takes about 2 cm for the length that the stretch stopper 11 is folded up and thus the stretch length around the waist is about 2 cm.

Furthermore, as shown in FIG. 4c, the upper end of the pocket sackcloth 8 for the waist pocket 2 and the lower end of the elongating part 3B are joined with a thin elastic tape 12 as an ancillary elastic material, thereby acting as a barrier for impairing the appearance by a loss of shape in the pocket sackcloth 8 for the waist pocket 2 and the like when the elongating part 3B moves with the structure that is stretchable around the waist.

It makes a loop with the storing part 3A having such a structure so as to close it at the lower end and as shown in FIG. 4c, a side of the back body 9 of the pair of suit trousers 1 is sewn on the lower end of the storing part 3A and the elongating part 3B is closed, while a side of the front body 4 of the pair of suit trousers 1 which forms the outer edge 2A of the waist pocket 2 is sewn on the lower end of the elongating part 3B so as to complete sewing of the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention.

More specifically, in the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention, tucks 5 are attached along side lines LS and RS of both sides to upper ends of side lines LS and RS of both sides and pockets 2 are attached from side lines LS and RS of both sides toward front center FC directions, respectively. And moreover, the overlapped portion of the belt part 3 is attached near the tucks 5 each and opening ends 3Ab of the storing part are attached along side lines LS and RS of both sides. The pockets 2 are waist pockets 2 that outer edges 2A are linearly-stretched from front center FC directions of neighborhood side lines LS and RS of both sides of the belt part 3 toward side lines LS and RS of both sides, respectively.

Furthermore, in the belt part 3, belt loops 7 are attached along opening ends 3Ab of the storing part and also, interlinings 14, 14A, 14B and 14C are attached to the rear side of the crease 5a or close to the rear side of the crease 5a in the tuck 5, respectively. Accordingly, the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention corresponds with the pair of trousers stretchable around the waist according to an invention of claim 1, claim 3, claim 4, claim 7 and claim 8.

Thus, in the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment of the invention, by following attachment of the tucks 5 to upper ends of side lines of both sides, the primary elastic material 10 that both sides are joined between the elongating part 3B and the storing part 3A becomes elastic, thereby being elastic around the waist. With this movement, the tucks 5 are opened and closed, therefore, it can prevent from getting wrinkles and the like on upper parts of the front body 4 and the back body 9 which are sewn on the belt part 3. And the tucks 5 are attached along side lines LS and RS which are formed by joining the front body 4 and the back body 9, thereby being united with side lines LS and RS with the tucks 5 closed. Even if the tucks 5 are opened, the tucks 5 are extensions of side lines LS and RS, thereby making it possible to improve the appearance so as not to be noticeable.

Besides, waist pockets 2 are also attached from side lines LS and RS toward front center FC directions, respectively. Therefore, tucks 5 which are united with side lines LS and RS each is recognized as a line of each of back ends of waist pockets 2, thereby being unnoticeable. Moreover, the overlapped portion of the belt part 3 is attached near the tucks 5 each and the opening end 3Ab of the storing part is attached along each of side lines LS and RS of both sides, therefore, the opening end 3Ab of the storing part is also recognized as a line which is an extension of each of side lines LS and RS. Furthermore, belt loops 7 are attached along the opening ends 3Ab of the storing part, thereby making it possible to improve the appearance so as not to be noticeable.

Additionally, side lines LS and RS, tucks 5 and opening ends 3Ab of the storing part are all concentrated within a narrow range, therefore, sewing of the pair of suit trousers 1 can be concentrated within the narrow range and the number of sewing is reduced, thereby making it possible to provide a pair of trousers stretchable, which is highly productive. And also, it can prevent the crease 5a of the tuck 5, which is easy to widen when wearing, from widening by attaching interlinings 14, 14A, 14B and 14C to the rear side of the crease 5a or close to the rear side of the crease 5a respectively so as to make the crease 5a open easily and moreover, it can certainly prevent the appearance from impairing when the tuck 5 is opened.

Thus, in the pair of suit trousers 1 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the first embodiment of the invention, it can obtain a working-effect that it certainly enables to prevent from getting wrinkles and the like on upper parts of the front body 4 and the back body 9 and improve the appearance so as to make tucks 5 and opening ends 3Ab of the storing part unnoticeable while making it possible to enhance its productivity.

FIGS. 7a, 7b and 7c are part development views showing structures in process of sewing a rear side of the principal part of the pair of trousers stretchable around the waist according to the second embodiment of the invention.

As shown in FIG. 5a, a pair of suit trousers 16 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the second embodiment of the invention has waist pockets 2 of one pair of right and left near side lines LS and RS of a front body 4. A tuck 17 is attached to each of rear sides near upper ends of side lines LS and RS which are located on back ends of the waist pockets 2. Near the tucks 17, this pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment has a structure that is stretchable around the waist, which makes an apparent length of a belt part 3 stretchable.

More specifically, in the belt part 3, an overlapped portion made by a storing part 3A and an elongating part 3B which is inserted into the storing part 3A is formed near each of upper parts of side lines LS and RS of the front body 4. An end of the elongating part 3B and the storing part 3A are joined in the storing part 3A with an elastic tape as a primary elastic material, thereby making the apparent length of the belt part 3 stretchable. And in accordance with stretching of the belt part 3, tucks 17 which are attached to rear sides of upper ends of side lines LS and RS are opened and closed.

Hereby, in case a pull force is not applied to the belt part 3, as shown in FIG. 5b, tucks 17 are closed and correspond with side lines LS and RS. Also, side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3. In case the pull force is applied to the belt part 3 so as to elongate around the waist, as shown in FIG. 5c, tucks 17 are opened and extended lines of side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3.

Other structures are the same as the pair of suit trousers 1 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the first embodiment mentioned above. That is, as shown in FIG. 5b, belt loops 7 are attached to the belt part 3 so as to cover opening ends of the storing part 3A which is attached to the belt part 3. A filler cloth 6 made of a common wool fabric with the front body 4 is sewn on a portion where is visible from an outside of the sackcloth for waist pockets 2 of one pair of right and left so that the sackcloth for waist pockets 2 is not visible from an upper side.

Next, a process of forming the tuck 17 in the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention is described referring to FIG. 6. FIG. 6 is a drawing that a part close to the left waist pocket is enlarged to show.

As shown in FIG. 6a, the left side line LS is formed by joining the front body 4 and a back body 9, however, here an upper end of the front body 4 forms an outer edge 2A of the waist pocket 2 apart from the left side line LS and then, the pocket sackcloth 8 for the waist pocket 2 is sewn on a rear side of the upper end of the front body 4. Also, the filler cloth 6 is sewn on the pocket sackcloth 8 and ends 18 of the pocket sackcloth 8 and the filler cloth 6 are joined on the back body 9 so as to form the upper part of the left side line LS.

Then, the tuck 17 is formed by folding down upper ends of ends 18 of the pocket sackcloth 8 and the filler cloth 6. Here, as shown in FIGS. 6b and 6c, an interlining 14 or 14C is attached to a rear side of a crease 17a of the tuck 17 or close to the rear side of the crease 17a of the tuck 17 in advance, before folding down the crease 17a. Hereby, it can prevent the crease 17a of the tuck 17, which is easy to widen when wearing, from widening by making the crease 17a open easily and moreover, it can certainly prevent the appearance from impairing when the tuck 17 is opened. Particularly, as shown in FIG. 6c, it is more effective to attach the interlining 14C to the neighborhood apart from the crease 17a which is located on the rear side of the crease 17a of the tuck 17.

A belt cloth 3Aa which comprises the storing part 3A and a belt cloth 3Ba which comprises the elongating part 3B are sewn on upper parts of the front body 4 and the back body 9 so that an opening end 3Ab of the storing part is located on an extension of the side line LS. Thus, the tuck 17 is formed along the left side line LS and similarly, another tuck 17 is also formed near the right waist pocket 2 along the right side line RS. As described above, in the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention, principal parts are concentrated on neighborhood right and left side lines LS and RS, therefore, the number of sewing is reduced and production efficiency is enhanced.

As shown in FIG. 7, a structure that is stretchable around the waist is the same as the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment mentioned above, however, only a layout of the storing part 3A and the elongating part 3B is opposite to the pair of suit trousers 1 according to the first embodiment mentioned above. That is, in the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention, the storing part 3A is attached to a front center FC side and the elongating part 3B is attached to the back body 9 side. In addition, in the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention, it takes about 2.5 cm for a length of a portion where the stretch stopper 11 is folded up and thus a stretch length around the waist is about 2.5 cm.

It makes a loop with the storing part 3A having such a structure so as to close it at a lower end and as shown in FIG. 7c, the side of the back body 9 of the pair of suit trousers 16 is sewn on a lower end of the elongating part 3B so as to close the elongating part 3B, while a side of the front body 4 of the pair of suit trousers 16 which forms the outer edge 2A of the waist pocket 2 is sewn on the lower end of the storing part 3A so as to complete sewing of the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention.

More specifically, in the pair of suit trousers 16 according to the second embodiment of the invention, tucks 17 are attached along side lines LS and RS of both sides to rear sides of upper ends of side lines LS and RS of both sides, while pockets 2 are attached from side lines LS and RS of both sides toward front center FC directions, respectively. An overlapped portion of a belt part 3 is attached near the tucks 17 each and opening ends 3Ab of the storing part are attached along side lines LS and RS of both sides. The pockets 2 are waist pocket 2 that outer edges 2A are linearly-elongated from front center FC directions of neighborhood side lines LS and RS of both sides of the belt part 3 toward side lines LS and RS of both sides, respectively.

Furthermore, in the belt part 3, belt loops 7 are attached along opening ends 3Ab of the storing part and the interlining 14 is joined on the rear side of the crease 17a in each of the tucks 17. Accordingly, the pair of suit trousers 16 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the second embodiment of the invention corresponds with the pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to an invention of claim 2, claim 3, claim 4, claim 7 and claim 8.

Thus, in the pair of suit trousers 16 as a pair of trousers stretchable around a waist according to the second embodiment of the invention, it can obtain a working-effect that it certainly enables to prevent from getting wrinkles and the like on upper parts of the front body 4 and the back body 9 and improve the appearance so that tucks 17 and opening ends 3Ab of the storing part are not noticeable while making it possible to enhance its productivity.

A tuck 25 is attached to each of upper ends of side lines LS and RS which are located on back ends of the L pockets 22. Near the tucks 25, this pair of cotton trousers 21 according to the third embodiment of the invention has a structure which makes an apparent length of a belt part 23 stretchable.

More specifically, in the belt part 23, an overlapped portion made by a storing part 23A and an elongating part 23B which is inserted into the storing part 23A is formed near each of upper parts of side lines LS and RS of the front body 24. An end of the elongating part 23B and the storing part 23A are joined in the storing part 23A with an elastic tape as a primary elastic material, thereby making the apparent length of the belt part 23 stretchable. And in accordance with stretching of the belt part 23, tucks 25 which are attached to upper ends of side lines LS and RS are opened and closed.

Hereby, in case a pull force is not applied to the belt part 23, as shown in FIG. 8b, tucks 25 are closed and correspond with side lines LS and RS. Also, side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 23A which is attached to the belt part 23. In case the pull force is applied to the belt part 23 so as to elongate around the waist, as shown in FIG. 8c, tucks 25 are opened and extended lines of side lines LS and RS correspond with opening ends of the storing part 23A which is attached to the belt part 23.

Moreover, as shown in FIG. 8b, belt loops 27 are attached to the belt part 23 so as to cover opening ends of the storing part 23A which is attached to the belt part 23.

Furthermore, as shown in FIGS. 8b and 8c, belt cloth stitches 23a and 23b are given to upper and lower ends of the storing part 23A and the elongating part 23B. It is general to give such belt cloth stitches 23a and 23b in casual trousers including a pair of jeans and a pair of cotton trousers, however, there is a possibility that any belt cloth stitch is not given in a pair of ladies' trousers even in casual trousers such as the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets according to the third embodiment of the invention and the like. In FIG. 9, FIG. 10, FIG. 12, FIG. 13, FIG. 18 to FIG. 20 and FIG. 22 to FIG. 27 described hereinafter, in order to make the drawings more visible, illustrations of the belt cloth stitches are to be omitted here.

Next, a process of forming the tuck 25 in the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets according to the third embodiment of the invention is described referring to FIG. 9. FIG. 9 is a drawing that a part close to the left L pocket is enlarged to show.

As shown in FIG. 9, the left side line LS is formed by joining the front body 24 and a back body 29, however, here an upper end of the front body 24 forms an outer edge 22A apart from the side line LS and then, a pocket sackcloth 28 for the L pocket 22 is sewn on a rear side of the upper end of the front boy 24. Also, an end of the pocket sackcloth 28 with a filler cloth 26 sewn on is joined on the back body 29 so as to form the upper part of the left side line LS.

And moreover, the tuck 25 is formed by folding down upper ends of the pocket sackcloth 28 and the filler cloth 26. Here, as shown in FIGS. 9b and 9c, an interlining 14 or 14C is attached to a rear side of a crease 25a of the tuck 25 or close to the rear side of the crease 25a of the tuck 25 in advance, before folding down the crease 25a. Hereby, it can prevent the crease 25a of the tuck 25, which is easy to widen when wearing, from widening by making the crease 25a open easily and also, it can certainly prevent the appearance from impairing when the tuck 25 is opened. Particularly, as shown in FIG. 9c, it is more effective to attach the interlining 14C to the neighborhood apart from the crease 25a which is located on the rear side of the crease 25a of the tuck 25.

A belt cloth 23Aa which comprises the storing part 23A and a belt cloth 23Ba which comprises the elongating part 23B are sewn on upper parts of the front body 24 and the back body 29 so that an opening end 23Ab of the storing part is located on an extension of the side line LS. In addition, the belt cloth 23Aa which comprises the storing part 23A is the common cotton cloth with the front body 24 and the back cloth 29 of the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets. The belt cloth 23Ba which comprises the elongating part 23B is also the common cotton cloth with the front body 24 and the back cloth 29 of the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets.

Thus, the tuck 25 is formed along the left side line LS and similarly, another tuck 25 is also formed near the right L pocket 22 along the right side line RS. As described above, in the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets according to the third embodiment of the invention, principal parts are concentrated close to right and left side lines LS and RS, therefore, the number of sewing is reduced and production efficiency is enhanced.

Next, the structure that is stretchable around the waist is described referring to FIG. 10. FIG. 10 is a drawing showing a neighborhood of the left L pocket 22 seen from a rear side of the pair of cotton trousers 21 with L pockets. As shown in FIG. 10a, the soft core SC and the hard core HC as an interlining are attached inside of the storing part 23A and the elongating part 23B by pressing with an iron. And the wide elastic tape 10 as a primary elastic material is sewn between the storing part 23A and the elongating part 23B.
