Reviews for Wrangler Men's Rugged Wear Unlined Denim Jacket
People say Wrangler is really similar to Levis.
No BS light jacket
I've owned and worn the same Levi denim jacket for over 30 years (no, not all the time: that would be weird). It still looks great but occasionally shrinks up (usually after Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years...) and I wanted a larger version to wear during these odd times of unexplained shrinkening (oh shut up spell check: if I make up a word, I get to decide how it's spelled) . My wife is, even as I type, offering rather malicious theories on the unexplained shrinkening and I'm suggesting that she obviously does not know the meaning of unexplained. I apparently have no brand loyalty as I didn't even notice I'd ordered a different jacket until I held the 2 up side by side to compare. Meh: close enough. No pads, zippers, epaulets, or any other unnecessary adornments. Just a classic, clean, light jacket.
Great look, strong, comfortable
Don't bother with that other brand that charges more than double for this still style jacket. If you ever owned a denim back in the day you probably had Levi or Lee. Well, take my advise. I've been everywhere and seen everything. This jacket fits perfect, sturdy, stitches are perfect. Buttons are in for life. Nothing more can be said that wasn't mentioned already. My review is if you want a denim, grab this one. The price is unbelievable. And if you think a name and more money is going to get you some better material and workmanship, your being fooled. I went that route. Sent it back on my for this one got money back! being it was 1/3 cheaper. I didn't care about money, I wanted a good denim. Jumped the gun and went top shelf. Take my word, grab a Wrangler. Came in 2 days, inside pockets, etc... Mine is blue and I noticed only a tiny bit of color run after 2 washes. Slightly shrunk but I honestly didn't notice. I bought a 2x. I'm 190, 6'1". I wanted it slightly bulky in order to wear clothes understand underneath. My experience these were always good at keeping in the heat anyway. Don't hesitate you'll be sorry you didn't get one a month from now on the fall.
Tough jean jacket with a roomy fit for a man who works with his hands
I have worn jean jackets over the years for actual work, not fashion. Thus, I look for my jean jackets to have room in the upper back, shoulder, armpit, and chest regions so that I can freely move, unrestrained. I also look for the denim to be thick and tough so that it won't easily tear if it snags on something. I can no longer wear Levi's jean jackets because even the XXL size fits like a medium and has zero room in those regions that I listed above. I bought this Wrangler jean jacket and it is PERFECT. It has room everywhere, but isn't bulky, it's tough, the color is wonderful, it's warm, and it fits how a man's denim jacket should fit: stylish, but roomy and tough for real work. I usually wear XXL for my tops because I'm a muscular man with a broad back/chest and regular sizes don't fit and the typical companies like Levi make even their XL+ sizes super tiny. This XXL Wrangler, however, fits exactly how a XXL should and I love it. I 100% recommend this Wrangler jean jacket!
You cannot ask for a better denim jacket
My previous denim jackets have been Levi (my gut outgrew them) and I had no idea what to expect from a Wrangler. I wear their jeans and like them a lot so I had high hopes for their jacket. I was not disappointment! The fit was actually much better than I expected. Rarely do off-the-rack clothes fit me very well. Usually if the chest and shoulders fit comfortably then the sleeves will be too long or if the gut fits then the shoulders are loose. Not so with this jacket - it is tailored for a real person. The quality is very good; nice weight denim with solid seams. Some of the button holes are almost too tight, requiring a bit of effort to open, but I prefer the button holes start out tight/stiff and then loosen over time rather than start out easy and get sloppy as the denim softens. The denim is fairly stiff brand new but a couple of washings with fabric softener and some wear is softening it up nicely. I have already sewn a couple of patches to the jacket and will be painting the back soon. I have no doubt I will get many years use out of this jacket.
Awesome Denim Jacket
Was very surprised on the weight and construction of this jacket. I'm writing the review to help others who are facing the dellema of choosing a Denim Jacket . I read reviews on all of them. Especially the Levi's. Trust me, this is a quality product and the price was excellent. I tried on the Levi's locally. It was very very tight, and the next size was a bit better, but the sleeves were to long.... what to do? I read all the reviews and figure I'd give this one a try. So far, not dossapointed, and I believe one washing will make it a taiilored fit . It's heavy, I mean noticeably heave, and works well with either a tee or a hoodie or sweat shirt. Overall, I'm really pleased and my wife wants one! For the price, she'll get one. Great to be casual and layer accordingly. Never usually totally dissatisfied with any Amazon product they promote. You couldn't give me a Levi's jacket now ( well you could give me one) but for the price and quality, I wouldn't buy one .
Great Denim Jacket...Here's What You Are Buying
This Wrangler jacket exceeded our expectations. The first thing you notice is the weight. It really is made with heavy duty 100% cotton denim. The stitching is well done. It's a handsome demim jacket. Although it's made in Bangladesh, it's good quality and expected to last a reasonable time. After trying an item on to make sure it fits properly and there are no defects, I always wash clothes before wearing them. Instructions are wash in cold water/dry on low setting/iron if needed. Be sure to wash this alone the first time unless you have a pair of faded blue jeans you want to add a little more color to. Just like their blue denim jeans, the blue dye does run during the first two washings so the wash water will be VERY blue the first time around. I took the jacket out of the dryer immediately so there were no wrinkles and no need to iron. Looked great. The sleeve length did shrink about half an inch which we were expecting. I suspect there might be another half inch shrinkage over time. There are two front breast pockets which are wide enough to get your hand in. Compared to a Levi denim jacket hubby has, these two pockets are just a little larger. He says these pockets are nicer for a man's hand....not too big but not so small you can't use them. There are also two outside side pockets (my husband calls them handwarmers) and two inside side pockets. The inside side pockets are a good size and deep so I think you could fit most anything in them that a guy would carry around... Read More
Best Denim Jacket Made
I've been wanting a nice denim jacket again for awhile now. I've been searching in almost every retail store in the area I live and nobody sells demin jackets no more. I had a Levi jacket years ago and it was a nice jacket. I saw these Wrangler jackets on here and read some of the reviews. So I ordered one in charcoal. When I received it I washed it right away because most denims are stiff and not very soft. When I finally put it on I was amazed how nice this jacket fit. These jackets are very well constructed and very sturdy. This is one nice jacket. It's got 2 pockets on the inside which the description fails to mention. I loved this jacket so much I ordered one in every color. Very satisfied customer, Wrangler rocked this one. I would highly recommend this jacket.
Think Out of the Box....Perfection!!!!
OK...I'm 6'4" 250 lbs Lbs....I challenge anyone to do as much research as I did to find a Cut-Off Jean Jacket for Riding.It Ain't gonna happen.I tried thinking out of the box and thought...HMMMM My last Cutoff Jean Jacket Circa 1983 was a Wrangler and now sits Proudly on my Wall as a Keepsake.I will probably Shadowbox it eventually.It's never been washed except for all the Rain Storms I Rode through.I lived in Florida for 35 Years so it actually has been washed..Just by Mother Nature.I read all the reviews on this Jacket and how they run Big so I ordered a 2XL and Low and behold it was too big.SO...I cut the sleeves off..Washed it and dried it on High heat.Guess what...It fits "PERFECT"!!!! I'm 70 lbs heavier than I was in 1983 so it's nice to have an Old friend Back.I know it's made in Bangladesh but I don't think I own "One" thing Harley that's made in the USA.I used to have a Big Problem with all this outsourcing but if they don't make it here what are you supposed to do? I just ordered a pair of Wrangler Jeans hoping for the same results.I was a Big Levi guy but the chaffing is relentless.Hope this helps other Buyers...PEACE and Happy Riding.
This is a solid jean jacket. I too was always a Levi fan, but their jacket's are not what they used to be (I had them in the 80's, early 90's). Wrangler still makes a nice thick, durable jacket. And with the savings you can buy a second one and still pay what you would for one Levi jacket. It fits slightly big on me (XL for 5'11" 200# guy) but that is how I prefer it. The breast and inside pockets could be a bit bigger, but they were still large enough to carry a phone and/or wallet. I would buy this again.
What a great jean jacket
I think when it comes to jean jackets Wrangler has left Levi's in the dust. This is actually my second time buying this jacket because due to weight gain I outgrew my xl. I originally bought this in black, but this round I wanted it in a more traditional look so I went for the light blue. But the stitching and craftsmanship on this jean jacket is top notch. If it's any help, I'm 6 feet tall with a pretty big belly and the double XL fits me perfectly. Sleeves aren't too long, plenty of room in the chest and upper arms, and a fair amount of extra room in the waist area. Buy this jacket, you won't regret it. PS, I saw some "fashion video" back when these jackets were really trendy and the author said something along the lines that jean jackets are for younger people. Well here in the Midwest plenty of us old timers rock these jackets. ;)
