In the movie The Outsiders, Ponyboy wears faded Wranglers with the back pocket patch torn off. I remember freeze-framing the movie, curious about the same thing, and the back pockets had the W stitching. I think they also had the darker rectangle on the pocket where the patch tore off, which is pretty common since they fade really easily, but don't quote me on that. (Maybe I'm just picturing that from some of my dad's jeans; he's worn Wranglers for work 6 days a week on average for about 30 years). Wranglers have the highest rise of any jeans I've ever worn. I just measured a pair I have, and the front rise is 12". Haha, I can't really believe it but I just tried them on (I'm still at the parents' for the holidays and saw them in the closet) and they don't fit anything like I remember. I picked these up at a western store about 3 years ago for a cowboy-themed event I was going to and have worn them about half a dozen times since (always with cowboy boots to western-themed events) and I remember them being ridiculously tight. I was going for the stereotypical ultra-tight Wrangler-butt look and saw they had a new slim-fit Cowboy Cut, 936DEN, so I picked up a pair in my usual size, 30x32. I think they're slimmer in the thigh than the regular Cowboy Cut 13MWZ. Anyway, at the time they felt skin-tight, but I just compared them to the 3sixteen SL-200x's I wear all the time now and they're not any tighter. I think part of the reason they felt so tight was perception, since I wore looser jeans then, and part of it is the placement of the pockets, due to the higher rise. Since the back pockets are up on the fuller part of the cheek they feel much tighter. The front pockets are harder to get into and out of for the same reason. Anyway, other than the high rise (which, in your case, is what you're after), the biggest turn off with these jeans for most people is the color. Their regular indigo color is kind of bright, but they seem to have more colors now, including a new rigid color which I've never seen in person. On the plus side, they're tough jeans, heavyweight with copper rivets at all the stress points, and usually under $30. I might actually start wearing mine once in a while.
