“Long live cowboys”

"Long Live Cowboys” is a slogan that Wrangler Jeans has used since 2008. The slogan is also sometimes used by sports teams called “Cowboys” (such as the Dallas Cowboys).


Wikipedia: Wrangler (jeans)
Wrangler is a manufacturer of jeans. The brand is owned by the VF Corporation, who also own Lee, JanSport and The North Face, among others. Its headquarters are located in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, with production plants in a variety of locations throughout the world. Wrangler International is now chaired by Dieter Jacobfeuerborn.

Wrangler Jeans were first made by Blue Bell, who acquired the brand when they took over Casey Jones in the mid-1940s. Blue Bell employed Bernard Lichtenstein ("Rodeo Ben"), a Polish tailor from Łódź who worked closely with cowboys, to help design jeans suitable for rodeo use. This was the origin of Wrangler Jeans. The 13MWZ style, introduced in 1947 as lot number 11MWZ, is still available worldwide. In addition to this, Wrangler has since introduced several other lines that are more designated towards a specific group or demographic. Some examples of this are 20X, Riggs and Aura.

Wrangler also has a line of music accessories targeted toward country music fans.

Wrangler also has a series of football commercials with Brett Favre playing a game of touch football in the mud.
