Back then, Wrangler jeans (and Lee as well, for that matter) used the same double arcuate stitch design as Levi Strauss on the back pockets. Tsk, tsk. I like the Wrangler coin/watch pocket shape and stitching in the picture above. It looks very clean and modern for it’s time. Wrangler was button-fly up until 1947 when they introduced a new model- the 13MWZ zipper front.

Never could stand the Wrangler watch pocket. It is completely covered by your belt, and therefore completely useless. And that’s where I put my motorcycle key.
If this is wrangler, why it has Levi’s arcurate on back pocket?
