Wrangler held an event at The Northern Pub in Manchester, England for Turkey Day. At the event celebs such as Brooke Vincent, Jody Latham, Marlon McKenzie, and Bez all came down to check out what Wrangler had to offer and for some of the free Wild Turkey Whisky cocktails.
At the event guest were able to browse through the Autumn/Winter Collection while listening the live acoustic versions of Kid British. This was a the last of the “Local Heroes” events held by Wrangler. They also took over Whisky Mist in London as well as Mahiki in London and Dublin. How many of you readers attended any of the Wrangler parties?
Indiana Jones Harrison Ford was spotted out and about in Brentwood, California grabbing a coffee and running some errands. We have never featured Harrison on DenimBlog before so I thought it would make a nice change. I absolutely adore the Indiana Jones movies, they are some of my favourites!
Harrison was wearing an old pair of Wrangler jeans which he paired with a brown leather flying style jacket, a black t-shirt, sunglasses and black loafers. I can’t believe he is 68 already! He’s still looking really good for his age! Are any of you a fan of Harrison and his movies?

The second Wrangler Stop Thinking event was held on October 30th 2010. Wrangler challenged four thrill-seekers to take part in a Drag Race at Santapod Raceway, rocketing down the 1/4 mile track in just 8 seconds. This is the latest in a series of adrenaline-fuelled challenges that Wrangler have been hosting. Their Stop Thinking campaign encompasses Wrangler’s brand ethos, encouraging us to throw caution to the wind and run with our instincts.
For Saturday’s Drag Race, Wrangler’s Facebook followers had been asked to guess the activity from a cryptic clue, then to reveal their racing name (eg Bob ‘The Bullet’ Jackson) and finally to explain, why are you in such a hurry? From these answers, four speed demons won their seat in a Drag Car.
Along with having their adrenaline levels dialed up to 11, each seat winner enjoyed full VIP treatment at Santa Pod race track in Northamptonshire and were kitted out in Wrangler’s cool contemporary autumn winter jeans. Wrangler’s next wild event is being prepped now, so stay in touch via the Facebook group.
Remember we told you about Wrangler’s challenges called Stop Thinking? Well the first event took place and it was a sky dive! Four ordinary members of the British public jumped out of a plane at 13000 feet above the Belgian countryside.
They had responded to the challenge laid down by iconic denim brand Wrangler: “If you were asked to drop everything at a moment’s notice and just go…could you?…would you?”
Following in the footsteps the viral seeding of Stop Thinking film in September 2009, Wrangler followed up in August 2010 and September 2010, persuading thousands of fashion fanatics and jeans lovers to sign up to its mysterious Stop Thinking website. These daring souls were posed a series of cryptic clues, which hinted at a wild, crazy, life-changing event that they could be part of – if they were prepared to Stop Thinking
Danni Osborne, Graham Newlands, Matt Doughty and Kelvin Fred-Horsfall were the selected few who braved the challenge, their journey can be viewed at http://www.stopthinking.co.uk. The countdown has begun for the next Stop Thinking call to action. You can view the videos of the events on the Wrangler YouTube channel by clicking here. The sky dive video looks amazing! I’m glad they all did it!
