Vintage 70s Big Ben Wrangler Blue Bell Herringbone Coverall Overalls 40 M / LRegular price £125.00 GBP
Wrangler Jeans were first made by Blue Bell, who acquired the brand in the mid-1940s. In 1946 Blue Bell started to develop a jeans line for cowboys and Blue Bell workers to take part in a contest to give the jeans a brand name. The winning name is Wrangler, synonymous with the name for a working cowboy. Wrangler has acquired iconic status worldwide and is still today a leading force in denim.
This is a vintage Big Ben by Wrangler Coverall with an abundance of pockets for all your kit and a brass Ideal 2-way front zipper. Made in the USA. The labels and zip date these to circa 1970s.
Used and in great vintage condition with minimal signs of wear. There is a mark to the upper back right of the coveralls (as worn). Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
