It’s hard to say what model they are Neal but they look like a boot cut or kick flare so that might (ironically) narrow it down. My guess (and this really is a guess) is they were made in Mexico or Eastern/SE Europe. They look good though, I’m assuming those photos are about 6 or 7 years old looking at mini-Soul so they’ve held up well. I think Wrangler prides itself on the whole robustness/longevity aspect so 25 years is testament to that.

Thanks Martin, She bought them from Oi Polloi within the first few weeks of it opening, at that time they only sold vintage, nos ect (i think the only brand they carried was Fjallraven) one of the owners Steve was still cutting hair in the basement, so this dates the purchase to 2002 (rather than late 90's) but based on what stock they carried they could easily have been NOS, she reckons they are 'ladies rodeo cut' an exaggerated version of the men's cowboy/boot cut, ive looked for them in her old boxes of clothes and only found this t-shirt which she bought on the same day with the same black/gold label.

I'll endorse anything for cash

Well, I gave my new 10MW 64s a 40C machine wash today and they shrank approx 0.5” in the waist and 1.5” in the inseam with no leg twist. I’d definitely say they’re sanforized!

@CSL, sorry but the size 33s I saw are sold out.
