WRANGLER 13MWZ(late 1960s)

 It is 13MWZ that appeared as the successor model of 11MWZ in the 1960s, and one that seems to be the one of the late 1960s that used left twill denim. The details are unchanged from previous Wrangler jeans. Although in unused condition with gluing, the dyeing of the fabric is noticeably much thinner than in either the earlier or later periods.

It comes with a flasher, but not a gimmie book.
It's pretty thick and straight. Levi's 501 at the same time is slightly tapered, but this one is not tapered from the knee down either.

It shows the 1968 National Cowboy Champion Larry Mahan, so it seems to be made in 1968 or 1969.


The bluebell mark is taken from the plastic patch, and a circle R is placed at the bottom right of the rope Wrangler.


The tab is also visible because the flasher is slightly attached to the lower eye. Black tab with ○R.


Made of cloth." Letters such as "14oz PLUS DENIM", "LOT 13MWZ", and "SIZE 28X29" are slightly visible.

coin pocket

The left side of the coin pocket is reinforced only by cannubis and not by rivets.


It is double stitched. Single stitching at the hem.


Over 14oz left twill denim. The dyeing is thin throughout, but it is thought to be due to the fact that the weft is well visible. Compared to Levi's denim from the same period, the nips are noticeable.
