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 jacket is made from a Broken Twill fabric. This is when the diagonal weave of the twill is intentionally reversed at every two warp ends to form a random design. As a result, the natural torque characteristic of regular twill weaves is reduced, eliminating the leg twist effect.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of use throughout and a washed worn look. 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.
COLOUR: Washed Dark Blue
SIZE: The label states XL but the wrong size label must have been put in, as this fits far smaller and fits more like a boxy Small (UK Sizing) with a 45in full external chest and the overall fit/ arm length - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

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.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up (if applicable) on a flat surface:
