Wrangler may not be the first brand that comes to mind when you think of vintage denim (hello, Levis), but thanks to its newest collab with Urban Outfitters, it could be well on its way to becoming another industry-wide favorite.
The heritage brand has teamed up with Urban Outfitters on an exclusive capsule collection of classic, American workwear for summer (a.k.a. what you would have worn to summer camp if you were alive in the '70s).
If you can get past how American Apparel-ésque the whole collection is, it's basically a nostalgic fashion nerd's dream come true. They've got logo T-shirts and tanks, red bodysuits to go with your feathered Farrah Fawcett hair, and denim — loads of vintage-style denim.
From the looks of the campaign images, the high-waist wedgie fit is still in. The fit can be found on a pair of high-rise cropped flares, cheeky denim shorts, and a pair of bell-bottom overalls.
The capsule collection couldn't have come at a better time, especially since Netflix announced it will be bringing the '70s-inspired camp comedy Wet Hot American Summer back for round two next year.
