This Wrangler ‘Blue Bell’ 11MW (Men’s Western) is in my private collection for a while. It’s an unused jeans with all the original tags like the legendary comic book. This jean is inspired by the rodeo clown pants from the ’50’s. The repro model is the 11MW which was originally introduced in 1947 when Blue Bell changed their company name into Wrangler. The original pair had the arcuate stitch (like Levi’s Jeans) but in 1948 they changed it into the now famous ‘W’ stitch. This repro pair has the great embroidered back with the advertising Jeans, Shirts and Jackets words. It’s made of a 12oz left hand fabric with non-selvage. Even these repro’s are hard to find as Wrangler stopped producing this authentic line a few years ago. Check the jean here below.
