Now that we are entering our 9th year making blue jeans for men who appreciate the honest qualities of Tellason jeans, we are pleased to announce our newest project, Tellason Stock. Our time and energy over the years has helped shape who we are as denim makers. Many of our customers love the "made in the U.S.A." component to our jeans. Others hear about our love the The Clash, some see San Francisco as the most important city in the world for denim (as we do) and want to support us for our commitment to this city.
Along the way, we have met a lot of diehard followers around the world who have shown great support for our brand and who we are as makers. Many of these supporters follow our raw denim life but have yet to own a pair of our jeans. It could be financial restraints. Maybe a lukewarm love affair with the historic shuttle looms making our fabric in the Cone Mills White Oak plant. Whatever the case, it was clear to us about one year ago after we visited Cone Mills in Greensboro, North Carolina that we need to do everything in our power to support Cone Mills, and, to create a raw denim collection that speaks to the men who support Tellason but do not own any of our goods. With this in mind, we are making jeans and denim jackets using a beautiful Cone Mills White Oak denim. This is non-selvedge material and made on modern, efficient looms in the same building where our narrow selvedge fabric is made. It was important for us to continue to make this product in San Francisco to hold onto the inherent value that "made in San Francisco" means to the denim consumers around the world. All of this for under $100 USD.
It pays to listen. When we started Tellason, we listened to our hearts and our minds when we made the decision to source all of our denim from Cone Mills’ historic White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina and to cut and sew our jeans in San Francisco, California. Six years later and [...]
We are lucky enough to work with some of the most important shops and distributors around the world. Each of them come to this business of ours with certain interests, experiences and a passion for great men's clothing. One of our early partners in crime is our distributor from Germany. He has [...]
WHAT IS RAW DENIM? Raw denim is denim in its purest form. Also known as “dry denim”, raw denim remains untouched after the dyeing and/or sanforization process and is not washed or chemically treated. Not only does raw denim last longer, it is more eco and labor friendly due to the lack of chemicals and water [...]
By most accounts, 2015 has been a good year for most people - unless you play or manage the Los Angeles Dodgers organization (sorry citizens of L.A., but our rivalry is just too good not to say something here about it). So to keep the positive minerals flowing, we have put together various holiday packages [...]
This just in- Italian made 100% silk bandanas in blue and orange for the days when you wake up feeling a bit more cavalier than the day before! These measure 26” x 26” and will help you look like a well dressed hero when you hand it to the heartbroken knockout sitting next to you on [...]
Here at Tellason, we are very proud of the fact that our jeans are not only made in America, but that the pocketing, thread, buttons, rivets and leather patches are as well. We’ve become friends with our suppliers and feel it is the right thing to do to support them and their businesses as all [...]
Our efforts to build a meaningful capsule collection for serious Fall / Winter weather includes a close collaboration with our friends and colleagues in Forli, Italy. In 2014, we had great success with a beautiful and classic zip front parka, using a British waxed canvas and a canteen striped wool lining made in Tuscany. For 2015, [...]
We’ve long been fans of what is called “railroad stripe” or “hickory stripe” fabrics. However, we always found pants or shirts and jackets made from these vertical striped fabrics to be too busy for daily wear. Our solution was to line our 16.5 oz. Cone Mills White Oak Coverall jacket [...]
For the past three years, we've had the privilege to have Manifattura Ceccarelli as our brand ambassador representing Tellason in the great country of Italy. Their culture reflects identical values that Tellason has had since the beginning - a love for well made goods, deep respect for where things are made, and [...]
