One of the objects of the invention resides in an
envelope wrapper which is open at opposite ends,
there being means formed from the material from
10 which the envelope is constructed for preventing
folded to provide a central body portion ll, one
side of the body portion having a side flap l2

material is folded to provide a narrow edge wall
Another feature of the invention is to provide
‘a double envelope or holder for receiving two
15 shirts in back to back relation, the article being
constructed of a single blank of folded material.
A further featureis the provision of a shirt
envelope constructed of cardboard having the top
15 to which the flap I2 is adhesively secured.
The blank of material after forming the edge

outer wall 16, whereas the remaining free edge of
the blank is. folded’ at right angles to lie against
of one of its walls shaped to ?t beneath the outer
20 fold of the collar of a laundered shirt which prevents sliding of the ‘shirt in one direction when
placed in the envelope, while a bendable flap is
struck out from the outer wall and adapted to be
folded over the front of the collar to prevent
25 sliding of the shirt in an opposite direction. '

combination and arrangement of parts, the essential features of which are hereinafter fully de,‘scribed, are particularly pointed out in the ap35 pended claims, and are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:

an end of the said wall opposite to that end on 35
which the holding means is shown on the wall l6.

‘Referring to the drawing by reference charac-
folded condition into the pocket It with the folded 50
end ?rst, said shirt being inserted into that end
of the pocket adjacent which the shirt holding
means is provided. After being fully inserted into
the pocket, the front collar flaps B-B respective
55 ters, the numeral l0 designates the preferred
1y overlie the extension tabs 20-—20, thus pre- 65
venting the shirt from shifting longitudinally in
one direction. To prevent the shirt from shift
ing longitudinally in an opposite direction, the
tongue 22 is folded over the front of the collar
so that the free end of the tongue extends into the
compartment l8 as best seen in Figure 2 of the
drawing. When the tongue 22 is thus folded, it
remains in such condition due to the inherent
characteristics of the cardboard. Thus it will be
10 seen that the extension tabs 20-20 engaging be
neath the outer ?aps of the collar of the shirt and
the tongue 22 coacts to prevent accidental shifting
of the shirt lengthwise of the envelope. When a
shirt is similarly inserted into the other pocket II,
15 it will be seen that the bulky ends of the shirt are
disposed at opposite ends of the envelope to facili
tate compact stacking of the wrapped shirts.
In Figure 5 of the drawing, the same construc
tion is shown as is present in Figures 1 to 3 with
20 the exception that the main body portion" II’ is
of a single piece of material, whereas the outer
walls are constructed of a separate folded blank
of material 23. In this construction the body
portion or partition H’ is provided with flaps 24
25 which are adhesively secured to the opposite edge
walls of the outer wall structure 23.
Although I have illustrated a double type en
velope in the form of my invention just described,
it will be understood that the same may be con
30 structed of a single shirt receiving pocket if
In Figure 6 of the drawing, there is shown a
modi?ed form of envelope of the single type which
includes a rear wall 25 having an extension tab
35 26 projecting from one end thereof. A front wall
21 is secured to the rear wall at opposite sides
thereof to form the open ended envelope and has
its end adjacent the tab 26 cut into substantially
V-formation to conform to the shape of the folded
40 edge of the collar of a shirt when in position with
in the envelope. The collar in this form underlies
the front wall 21 and to simulate the front outer
folds of an underlying collar, the front wall is slit
as at 28 to provide collar shaped flaps 29. The
45 front wall 21 is provided with a struck out tongue
30 similar to the tongue 22in the preceding form.
In this form of the invention, the folded shirt is
inserted into the envelope and the tab 26 is posi
tioned beneath the outer fold of the collar at the
50 rear thereof, while the front collar folds underlie
the collar shaped portions 29. The tongue 30 is
bent outwardly over the crotch of the V-shaped
cut out to engage the inside of the collar at the
front thereof.
In Figure 7 I have shown a construction some
what similar to that shown in Figure 6 and like
reference characters refer to similar parts. How
ever, the front wall 21 is cut away to expose the
collar and the same is provided with a window
opening closed by a transparent covering 34 of
cellophane, glassine, or like material to expose
the bosom portion within the envelope. The shirt
is held against accidental longitudinal shifting
by the tongue 30 and tab 26 in the manner here
inbefore described.
In Figure 8 of the drawing, a construction sim
ilar to that shown in the preceding form is illus
trated, wherein the envelope is constructed of a
single blank of cardboard 3| having its free ends
lapped as at 32, and adhesively secured together.
The edge walls of the envelope are provided with
accordion folds 33 so that the envelope may be
folded flat when not in use and opened to the
desired degree to accommodate the thickness of 15
the shirt inserted therein.
While I have shown and described what I con
sider to be the most practical embodiments of
my invention, I wish it to be understood that such
changes as come within the scope of the ap
pended claims may be resorted to if desired.
Having thus described the invention, what I
claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pat
ent of the United States, is:—
1. A shirt envelope comprising a cardboard 25
envelope body open at one end, the front wall of
said envelope body at the open end thereof be
ing provided with a notch having converging side
walls for exposing the neck of a shirt when in
serted into said envelope body, and a tongue out 30
from the front wall of said envelope body adia
cent to and inwardly of the base of said notch
and in alinement therewith for folding through
the notch and downwardly upon itself to lie in
side of said envelope body and adapted to engage 35
the exposed neck end of a shirt when a shirt
is in position within said envelope body.
2. A shirt envelope comprising a cardboard
envelope body open at opposite ends, the front
wall of said envelope body at one end being pro 40
vided with a notch having converging side walls
for exposing the neck band of a shirt when in
serted into said envelope body, a tongue cut from
the front wall of said envelope body adjacent
to and inwardly of the base of said notch and in 45
alignment therewith for folding through the
notch and inwardly upon itself to lie inside 01'
said envelope body and adapted to engage the ex
posed neck band of said shirt when a shirt is in
position within said envelope body for preventing 50
accidental shifting of a shirt outward of the
notched end of said envelope body, and means
formed on said envelope body at the notched end
thereof and adapted to engage beneath the outer
fold of the collar, of a collar attached shirt, for
preventing accidental shifting of a shirt in a
direction toward the opposite end of said en
velope body.
