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 taking 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 with four patch pockets and fully blanket lined. Made in the USA.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, discolouration, and abrasion throughout. The jacket has 2 holes to the lower left of the jacket (as worn) as well as a stitch repair near the top button. Beaten up this jacket has bags of character like a seafaring veteran. Freshly laundered and ready for its 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.
