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 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 Wrangler blanket lined tan denim jacket circa 1980s, with a branded button front and a cord collar. Made in the USA.
Used and overall in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration/ marks throughout. There is also some minor fraying to the cuffs and hem and one corner of the back neck label has come loose. 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.
