Vintage Deadstock Wrangler Big Ben Blue Blanket Lined Denim Chore Jacket 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 starts to develop a jeans line for cowboys and Blue Bell workers 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 denim chore jacket in deadstock unworn condition, still with the original tag at the collar. The upper back has been printed with 'Public Works Center'. Please note the front zip is a little stiff but still works fine. Made in the USA.

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.
