    Damn fine

    I wanted a lightweight denim during these heat waves of 112 in California. Global warming is real, but I’m not going to stop wearing denim because of it. Damn fine pair of American made jeans with white oak. Couldn’t pass up having some of the last in stock cone mills.

    Ankara straight leg 12.5oz jeans

    Posted by Bill on 11th Apr 2020

    The backstory on the site explains that these were originally designed for a guy with burly legs, but that they’re good on skinny guys too. I’m a skinny guy, prefer a well-shrunken 31 waist in these. On me they look and feel like magically brand-new WWII-era work pants, “dungarees”, which is what I actually use them for. The build, of course, is finer than any real work pants today. Love ‘em.

    The old time feel.

    If you are of a particular age these jeans will take you back to your first day of school. These are jeans you have to brake in and soften up. Tellason jeans also have deep pockets. There is plenty of room in this straight cut model. Thanks for a great product and great service.

    Fits me great!

    Posted by Robert H on 19th Apr 2016

    This is my second pair of Ankara 12.5 oz. straight legs. The first one is about 5 years old and started to get holes on the crotch area about a year ago. I had it repaired and its as good as new. This cut fits me really well as it's roomy in the thigh area without being baggy anywhere else. As it aged, I like the way the coloration changed. I'd buy again provided this new pair lasts awhile.

    Great jean for the larger guy

    Posted by Pat on 21st Mar 2016

    This is my first purchase of Tellason clothing. As a guy with thighs and calves on the larger side, it's tough to find denim that fits well, is comfortable, and looks great. These fit the bill and then some. Made in the USA is also an added bonus.
    Definitely not my last purchase! Thanks Tellason!

    Excellent quality and fit

    Posted by James on 3rd Aug 2015

    I've been looking for a quality pair of jeans for a long time that can accommodate my chunky and "athletic" build thighs and butt. The Ankara is a great fit, and has ample room even for me, but not baggy. Nice cut, great quality. I'm a fan and will definitely buy again. Only request now is to have a version of the Ankara with an even deeper shade of blue!

    Perfect fit for me - nice "lightweight" denim

    Posted by Dan on 13th Apr 2015

    This fit is great for me as I have larger thighs and am not looking for a slim fit. I was looking for a lighter denim for the Florida weather and these are the best I've found. The larger back pockets are a little different for me, but I still need to give them time to break in.
