  1. Tough as nails 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2019

    My 16.5 Oz Ankara denim pants are tough as nails. I work hard, and these pants keep up with my daily routine. These are the only pants I wear, frankly, the only pants I have to my name. I have 4 pair of Tellason 16.5 Ankara denim pants to my name. Two pairs of 34( summer size) and two pair of 35.(winter size) . There is no need for a closet full of denim. These jeans are meant to be worn everyday, meant to be worn hard. The size is spot on, true to size. American made, in the American CMWO or the Proprietary Japanese Denim, high quality denim that just can’t be beat.

  2. Finally figured out my size in these. Very happy with them. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jun 2019

    I've only now noticed that this denim is described both as "raw" and "sanforized", something I would have thought a contradiction in terms. I'm used to raw selvedge denims shrinking 2 inches in the waist the first time they going in the dryer. These won't do that, and until now I'd put that down to the thickness of the material. 32-inch waist wouldn't shrink enough, so I gave those to a lucky friend with a larger waist and ordered 31-inch. Unwashed, they're just a tiny bit loose. My one-time-only inaugural machine-dry should take care of that perfectly.

    Otherwise, these are my idea of the Platonic Ideal of American jeans, and, amazingly, they actually are 100% American jeans, made in San Francisco from American fabric.

    My only worry now is that with Cone Mills shut down, I'm going to be tempted to stockpile

  3. For guys with thighs! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Feb 2019

    I'm so happy with my purchase! I swear I've been looking for the perfect jeans for years and I finally found them. All the other jeans I've tried are too tight in the thighs. These fit perfect! Amazing fit and American made. What more could you ask for.

  5. 3rd year, 3rd pair 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2018

    Each year i buy these jeans. Im built like a linebacker so jeans are hard to find. These make the grade. I wear them everyday. I work in a manufacturing and warehousing. I have a desk and i am on the floor for work and they hold up perfectly. I even hunted in them last year. They werent lucky but they held up in the desert. Nothing stops cactus but its a cool story and they didnt rip apart.

  6. cool, but very tough fabric 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Mar 2018

    Hard to write a review for a pair of jeans that will last me 20+ years, all I can review is the first week I’ve had them.

    My father always told me; “If you want to buy something you will use a long time, then buy the best possible version of it you can afford.” I used that advice to buy these jeans, as the fabric is very, very tough; the jeans could almost stand up by themselves. I don’t know how long it will take for them to break in. I like them so far, wore them a few days, but they are so stiff, I’m walking around looking like I have knee damage, and I can barely climb into my Jeep, ha ha. I want to wear these awhile and get them somewhat broken in, but it looks like I’ll order more. Strong thick fabric, perfect sewing and stiching...

    One thing: the legs are very long. I’m 6’1 or 72 inches tall, and I swear there is about 7 inches of denim I need to hem. The hemming will cost me about $20 here in Hawaii, if I can find a place that has a machine strong enough for this fabric. Company said I could mail them in to them, which is cheaper, so I’ll probably end up doing that.

  7. love my Tellason 5 Star Review

    What can I say. I love them..... I own another pair of jeans and a hoodie from Tellason. All quality, durable and comfortable.

  8. First but not last pair 5 Star Review

    Exceptional quality and fit! Very pleased withe these jeans!

  9. The best jeans 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2017

    I was initially reluctant to spend $200 on a pair of jeans. But after reading such great reviews I decided to take the plunge and purchase a pair for my husband. The quality of the jeans is amazing. I've never seen such great detail. My husband was so excited receiving the jeans that he put them on right away. He loves the look, fit and feel of the jeans. I see another purchase in our future.

  10. Finally found a great pair of straight cut jeans 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2017

    These jeans are exactly what I was looking for. Not a bunch of flashy bs, just good quality denim in a straight cut. These are the best fitting straight cut raw denim jeans that I have found. Plus, made in the USA is something I look for in all my purchases. Not the last pair of Tellason Jeans that I will own.
