Heineman's patent "relates to certain improvements in suspenders for gentlemen's or ladies' use, and that class of fabrics in which the parts which sustain the principal strain have hitherto been formed of webbing or leather; and it consists in the employment of round or flat steel or other wire, either covered or uncovered, or of flat web composed partly or wholly of wire, in combination with the elastic or other webbing, whereby a strong and rigid connection is substituted for the yielding parts."
