Ankara - Straight Leg Selvedge Jeans- 12.5 oz.

(23 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.

    I’m glad I pulled the trigger!

    This pair was my first foray into the world of raw Selvedge denim. I did some research and Tellason had the fit I was looking for with their Ankara fit. After getting them and being impressed with the fit and quality of the jeans I promptly ordered two more pair in different weight denims. I’m hoping Tellason will add some heavier denims to their lineup. They will have a customer in me in the years to come. Great work!

    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.

    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.
