Ankara - Straight Leg Selvedge Jeans- 12.5 oz.

(25 reviews) Write a Review

True straight leg fit. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese dark blue line raw selvage denim (sanforized). Button fly. Extra heavy pocket bags. Bottom of back pockets lined for durability. Leather patch by Tanner Goods, Portland, OR. Graduated inseams from 34.25" to 35.75". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


Sometimes, less is more.  In fact, a lot of times, less is more.  Less crappy clothes, less crappy food, and less crappy hot sauce.  You get the message- trade all of the bottom dwelling, no-effort goods for a few dibs and dabs of better made, more focused goods out there. I start these write ups and tend to drift off.  Let me put this back on track and say that our Ankara straight leg fit is probably less complicated when we explain the details of what makes this jean click.  Two words-  "straight" and "leg".  That is it.  Like a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich sitting next to it, cut on the diagonal, of course...  It just makes sense and sometimes that is exactly what you want to cook up on any given day.

    Tellason Ankara

    I´m actually owning some Tellason Jeans such as Elgin, Blubagh and Jgm at the size 30" and they all fit good. Now I`ve got the Ankara 16,5 oz, size 29" and these are my absolute favorit trousers. Fantastic look, feel and shape - perfect fit.

    Ankara Straight Leg Selvedge Jeans 12.5 Oz

    Excellent quality, as was expected. Ordered the wrong size and Tony called me to help sort out my needs and get a return label to me so I could swap to the correct fit. He also talked through some basics of raw Selvedge denim which was so welcome, as I’m brand new to the hobby. Exchange process was easy and painless. Customer service was so great that I came back for a belt. I could not be happier with my entire Tellason experience experience!

    These jeans have just arrived here in New Zealand. Bought these along with a Tellason denim jacket. The ulitmate, timeless, classic jeans. Amazing quality. Can't wait to wear them in.

    Ankara 12.5 oz.

    I've worn most of the tellason jeans and all are fantastic but the Ankara 12.5 are my favorite. I wear a size smaller in the Ankara vs. jgm or Sheffield. Just the classic straight leg done to perfection.

    Decided to try a more generous cut for my jeans and after a lot of reading and comparisons, decided to try the Ankara. FIrstly, so happy with these jeans (14.5 oz) - excellent weight and skillfully made. Secondly, these are a generous cut, so perfect for a more athletic leg, so easy to move and live in.

    The absolute best. Look no further

    I wish I had tried on the Ankara a decade ago! Would've save me a lot of $ buying other selvedge jeans from other brands. If there is one pair of selvedge jeans you should own, it is this one. The fit is unbeatable and very flattering. All other details and the customer service are out of this world.
