Saw this picture in some ages old sufu Wrangler thread. I have tried to search the web for the origin but got wery bleak results. Anyone know who made these repros and did Wrangler at some point in history have this kind of gullwing or  "low M" stitching?

I know that they later had a M stitching in their Maverick range but that was steep like the regular wrangler W reversed.

Anyone know when this style of jacket first appeared.
I'm struggling.
They were made in the early twill denim as well as the Wrandam zig zag.
The cord ones were definitely around in '68 (lots of people have said so and ive got a pic from early '69, clear as day).

The colourful hippy advert attached was reported to be 1970 (and others say '69) but isn't a great representation.
And the Western wear ad is '69 but this copy isn't quite clear enough to make it out.
Same with the how to spot a Wrangler - posted as '69 but this copy isn't clear enough.

My guess is '69 but that's with some speculation.

@Denimetc - Sorry, cant help you with the repro

@Topgearskin - Hi, according to Boon vol 4 (denim jacket edition), your jacket was made from 1973-1978.

I know that the black label stuff is post '69 and that your jacket neck tag dates from the mid-seventies
I'm not that familiar with anything post '68 when it comes to
Wrangler so cant be of any more help unfortunately.

Thanks for the quick reply Dr H.

its more the style of the jacket I was questioning, rather than that particular one. The two pocket Levi type 3 style jacket.
I've got one in the old twill denim (before the broken twill became standard for jackets) so I'm guessing that one dates between '64 and '70 (from what I've gathered so far). My guess was about '68-'69. So do you have a date for when that style first rolled out? It was of course available in corduroy in the late '60s (but without the W on the pocket flaps).
Much appreciated.

I am with Dr on this one.  According to my research your Jacket with W in the flaps dates between 1973 - 78/79. I think it is a model 127MJ. Is it made in USA? Because from the 1960's Wrangler was made with a licence in Europe also (Belgium I think) and there was some differences in models and their release dates between US and European made jackets.

Topgearskin.
Hi, managed to get the pics of the 1970's Wrangler jackets page from my Boon vol4 magazine for you.







And here is the only photo I have of your style of jacket ('73-'76) -

Looking for info on this Wrangler 'No-Fault' denim vest with sherpa lining. Made in USA.

(Hope i've found right thread ) 

I understand they were wrinkle free / non iron garments (post washing) . Would that be correct?

I can't quite make out the coding to the tagging as it as faded somewhat. Something along the lines of VN200NY ?

No stamps to buttons . 

Thanks. Gil
