TODAY’S PATENT – CONVERTIBLE LENGTH GARMENT
The CONVERTIBLE LENGTH GARMENT was invented by Gordon j. Saggs (New York, NY) on the 4th of March 1986, bearing patent number US4573218A.
The objective of the invention is to provide a garment which converts, from a shirt garment, such as a jacket, to a longer garment, such as a raincoat, in one simple operation, and which may be reconverted to the form of the original garment.
The lengthening panel is attached to the top and bottom portions. It is foldable and unseen when the garment is shortened and seen when the garment is unfolded. The panel extends circumferentially around the garment and is held together by a zipper. The invention can also feature a pull over style garment with a unitary one-piece panel. The aim of the invention is to be a multiuse garment instead of carrying two different garments for different purposes.
