I love Tellason. I've been buying from them since late 2022, have a couple pair of jeans and some tops/jackets. When I first saw this shirt, I certainly thought it was a departure from their other clothes, especially since it was linen/cotton. My only experience with these materials were a couple of cheap Uniqlo shirts I bought a while back. Fast forward months later, I actually found size large in Tellason's Crapshoot clothing. Decided to drop $65 + shipping and was surprised to find this shirt! I've never been a fan of grey that much, but I actually like the color on this. I will say it looks closer to the second picture they show, whereas the first one looks much darker than it is. I actually prefer this, I don't like dark grey. Anyway this shirt is built to Tellason standards: meant to last a lifetime! It certainly is lighter and more breathable than other shirts I own. In fact, if you hold it up to some light, you can see through it! But make no mistake: this shirt is durable! Interestingly, it is almost identical to their Topper shirt, but this shirt does not have the two buttons at the cuff; it has one at the cuff and one at the wrist/forearm. Even though this was a crapshoot supply and a shirt I did not expect to get, I can't wait to use it during Spring/Summer/Fall. For sizing reference: I'm 5'8. about 170 pounds, and have a 40 inch chest. The Large is just a bit long for me and only a bit relaxed in the body, but I like the look. I don't want anything hugging me. It fits great at the shoulders too and really complements them. Another great buy from Tellason! If you're considering getting this, just keep in mind it is certainly better for warmer weather. Cheers!
I have to admit I usually don't spend this kind of money on a shirt but I've heard so much good things about Tellason. I am 5-11 and 205 with a pretty big chest and arms and the large was a perfect fit. The quality is phenomenal and it just feels like the kind of shirt you'll have for the rest of your life. It even came with a thank you note and a pencil in the pocket. I'll be buying plenty more from Tony and Pete.
Honestly, a linen shirt is not my usual go-to for any garment or material. The inevitable creases frustrate me. With this said, a linen shirt is not usual staple. I was intrigued by Tellason's take as well as the cotton blend. Three weeks into owning their linen/cotton shirt, I've worn it 6-8 times and washed the garment twice. I recommend washing the shirt the moment it arrives - opening up the fabric. I am 5' 11", and 160lbs. The medium size is just right. What stands out about this shirt is that added cotton, which gives the shirt a bit of stiff heft. Some inevitable crease that one expects from linen - but less obvious. Essentially this is a sturdy shirt. The details and cut are beautifully considered: two buttons on the cuff (make for great rolling of the sleeves), the asymetric pockets make this look more bespoke; and generous collars give the shirt a timeless quality. I was a skeptic where linen shirts are concerned. Tellason - once again - exceeded any and all expectations.
Excellent fabric and fit!
Really love the fabric and feel of this shirt. The linen/cotton blend hits a great balance, great smooth feel and the cut is perfect. I'm expecting some shrink but that will work for me when it inevitably happens. Color is a dark greyish black. If I had any feedback on the design it'd be to add an oxford collar.
Great fabric, great construction, and a soft hand out the box make this a winner.
The shirt is light annd warm, annd the details show a lot of care. I can see how this will be in play for years. Earlier comments on size were helpful. I’m 6’ and 200 lbs and the large was a bit roomy.
Bought this shirt as an item of the week. First purchase from Tellason and I’m an immediate fan. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are top-shelf, and I’m usually pretty hard to please. See sizing info above. I have long arms and an athletic build—shirt feels like it’s tailor made for me. Bravo guys! I can see this is now just the beginning of my relationship with Tellason.
