The Denim & Boots Podcast - Why Tellason Chose ‘Made in Japan’ After White Oak Closed

The Denim & Boots Podcast, Season 2, Episode 3

In this episode of the second season of The Denim & Boots Podcast, I talk to Pete and Tony from Tellason.

I’ve known the two Californians since around 2010 or ’11 when we first met at the Fire Dept. during the heydays of Bread & Butter in Berlin.

The all-American jeans-focused brand that’s based in San Francisco turned 10 this year. They were Cone Denim White Oak’s 4th biggest client till the very end. Now, their jeans are made from Japanese denim.

I wanted to talk to Pete and Tony about what it was like being forced to find another fabric supplier, and why they chose Japan.

You can follow Tellason on Instagram here. You can buy their jeans (and all their other great stuff) from their website, tellason.com.

Oh, and here are links to Pete and Tony’s favourite The Clash songs:

Tony’s favourite: (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais
