This has make me extremely happy lately. I found this vintage Wrangler denim jacket, and unfortunately sleeves have been cut off long time ago — but that just makes it perfect vest for the summer! The jacket has a Wrangler coding MJ. It has been difficult to find anything conclusive. It has faded blue selvage inside and buttons are stamped However, after this it seems that Wrangler denim jackets have been made of only broken twill non-selvage denim.
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. 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 '' 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. I'll try and post the pics of the BlueBell's Wrangler jackets info l have to illustrate, maybe tomorrow or over the weekend.
I am with Dr on this one. I think it is a model MJ. Is it made in USA? Because from the '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.
Hi, managed to get the pics of the 's Wrangler jackets page from my Boon vol4 magazine for you. And here's a deadstock one on ebay showing the tag date as '74 - http: Looking for info on this Wrangler 'No-Fault' denim vest with sherpa lining.
Would that be correct? I can't quite make out the coding to the tagging as it as faded somewhat.How A Men's Trucker Jacket Should Fit/How A Denim Jacket Should Fit/How To Buy A Trucker Jacket
Something along the lines of VNNY? Now I know the same style was available in corduroy, suede and leather in the late 60s all without the W on the pocket flaps.
Now usually, the denim one would come first and the other material variants would follow after. Maybe the denim one came out after the success of the cord version? Any info would be much appreciated.
