Yes, it did happen up here in whippet and clog land.
I had a Levi denim - trucker - jacket back in the day (1969-70), and would wear it with Sta-prest but never jeans. That would have been too denim-y. for my taste.
Lads would sew their Wrangler back pocket patches on jackets, too - but not me.
I had a couple of pairs (Wranglers) but never a Wrangler denim jacket - they seemed a bit too 'johnny-come-lately' for me.
I was always happier in pants, as opposed to jeans. Still like that though I can, fatness permitting, squeeze into a pair of Levis or Lee Ryders.
As a side issue: BBC 4, Tuesday nights, 8.30, are runnning a never seen on TV series made by Rank, featuring all sorts of things from the very late 50s through the 60s.
It may be worth catching it for hstoric interest.
Apologies to the overseas folks, I don't think you can receive this.
Absolutely loving this series, last night's episode showing the kids playing in adventure playgrounds (lots of concrete around!) and soapbox racing (we called them Dandies in Bristol) was a delight - and as for the East End hop pickers moving lock, stock and barrel to their huts in the fields of Kent where they decorated them with lino and papered the walls! Wonderful stuff.
