Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ Kids Jeans From The 1970′s

This Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ kids jean is from my private collection. The jean is very worn-out by a kid as the knees are completely destroyed. As many kids jeans, also this one, has a zipper, made from non-selvage left hand fabric. Because the jean is washed some many times it feels really soft.

It was in 1947 that employees of ‘Blue Bell’ (the previous Wrangler brand name) voted on the name of a new line of jeanswear designed specifically for cowboys and rodeo riders. The name decided upon was Wrangler. In the year 1948 they replaced the arcuate stiching into the “W” stitch on the backpockets. What’s also nice to mention is that the first Wrangler pocket labels were made from pressed card and then in plastic for a simple reason, when a leather label and a leather saddle come into contact, they stick and Wranglers were designed for cowboys. It’s a pitty that Wrangler doesn’t make the ‘Blue Bell’ line anymore. This means that these items are hard to find, very rare.

Evisu Denim Jacket Lot 3641

This Evisu denim jacket with lot nr. 3641 is from my private collection and is about 10 years old. The jacket is inspired on the famous Levi’s Jeans Type 2 trucker jacket, original 507XX, introduced around 1953. Inside of the jacket there is a nice plain and red selvage. The sleeves has a nice worn pattern. But what makes this jacket really special are the embroidered pockets, with the Evisu seagull logo. Check it out.

Evisu Jeans: Tribute To Levi’s Jeans

A while ago I bought this nice worn in special edition from Evisu Jeans: Homage to Levi’s Jeans. Evisu brought a homage range years ago where they showed their love to the Big 3 denim brands: Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. All the jeans were made with the unique specifics from each brand. I own this whole tribute collection in unwashed (raw) condition, but lately I came across a nice worn in pair of the Levi’s homage. The jean is made from right hand fabric, selvage and has the famous red tab, but painted ofcourse which is known of the Evisu brand. Check the jean below and check also the link with my previous post from my raw versions of these three Evisu homage jeans.

Latest Vintage Found: Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ Denim Jacket 8MZ From ’50′s

This Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ jacket 8MZ is my latest vintage found. This jacket was introduced in 1951 as the second edition Wrangler jacket included a zipper. It’s made of 8oz left hand denim, the feeling is extremely soft! It features golden/yellow selvage behind the zipper, elastic side details, sleeve vents, one breast pocket and two hip pockets.

The previous owner wore this jacket a lot as the denim is faded completely, a lot of holes and damages and the jacket also got some several chlorine spots. A true nice piece of a worn-out denim item. Perfect addition in my private collection!

Selvage Biker Jean 1958 MotoRoamer by Pike Brothers

Pike Brothers came with a great innovation for the hardcore bikers and denimheads, the ultimate motorcycle protect jean. The model is called 1958 MotoRoamer and it’s the first selvage motortcycle jean with EN 13595-1 certification! They teamed up with a European PPE manufacturer who specializes in bullet proof vests and protection gear for military and police forces. The result is a combination of our hard-wearing 11oz selvage denim jeans and a removable inner pant made 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® – an extremely robust combination, as the pant will withstand 12 seconds of abrasion, keeping your skin protected! Really nice to see this new combination for the bikers and denimheads! Great job Fabian!

My Latest Vintage Catch: Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ Jeans Window Banner

My latest vintage denim treasure is this old Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ denim banner. The banner is in a deadstock never washed condition. They used to make these banners in small numbers, only a couple of hundred, because the silk screens weren’t so strong as nowadays. This one is made on a light weight plain right hand selvage fabric. Made from the colours red, yellow and white. Most of the Levi’s banners are also made with only these three colours. These banners were made as advertising material for the shop windows. Very hard to find and true collector items. Think this one is from the ’70′s but can also be older. If you have some more info about it, please send me an email: info@long-john.nl

Universal Works

In late 2008 Universal Works was born, with the Autumn Winter 2009 as their first collection. Universal Works aims to mix the great British clothing heritage with a modern, more international feel, clothes that reflect the personality of the owner. The ideas come from a humble blue-collar background but one that knows how to dress well and live well. They wanted to create a brand that offers great fits and great quality at a fair price. Below their Boncoura 5 pocket cinch back jeans.
