- I belive there were still some Blue Bell tags in 1966
- The Cream color tag remained without Blue Bell -logo until 1970 and from then on black rectangular tag apperears. This changes to black "hang loop" style tag around 1976. White "no fault" tags appear from 1980 on. Black rectangular made a comeback sometime in 1980-90's

Edit: Broken twill was patented in mid 60's to reduce leg twist (but WHY!!) and yes, as you gents point out Wrangler started using it around 1971-73.

The above gives pretty good rough guidelines for dating 60-70's Made in USA Wrangler jackets.

Brilliant Denimetc - another reason why Denimbro delivers
