Ankara- The capital of Turkey. A nutty choice to name a jean? Not really to us since that is where our favorite front man was born back in 1952.

Pronunciation can be a funny little game in life. You meet a lady named "Kirsten" but you end up saying, "nice to meet you Kristen" then she says, "it's Keersten" and you feel like just calling her "hey there" in the future so you don't screw her name up and get corrected again. Ankara is that way.

Put the emphasis on the front half of the word? Maybe. Put the emphasis on the second half of the word? If you are English, yes. Pittsburgh is not that way. Just say Pittsburgh and you are done. This is a good time to check out what I mean and watch the glorious SNL intro from Christopher Walken for the Foo Fighters. Where does the emphasis go? You decide what sounds better.

Cheers ya'll,

    Best Jeans I have ever bought in my life

    Posted by Brandon Long on 17th Sep 2021

    The fit is perfect! Not to baggy and not to tight. These jeans are a true straight fit. For people who are looking for those true straight denim blues these are the jeans you are looking for. The material and craftsmanship of these jeans are in a league of their own. I don’t have to look for jeans ever again. I can’t wait to see the fades these jeans will create. Thank you Tellason for these amazing jeans. A true fan and now a true customer.

    best fitting jeans so far

    Posted by Gil Mizrahi on 18th Aug 2020

    i have been into selvedge denim for a little over 2 years now, I have tried multiple brands in different weights of fabric and so far these are the best fitting ones among all that i have tried. I lift weights, so I am built wider on my thighs and most of jeans are either too tight or too loose. These are the perfect balance. Enough room, without a baggy look. The 14oz fabric feels extremely versatile. Not too light, not too heavy, perfect for everyday use. Also feels like its going to be getting insanely nice fades, really can't wait to wear em out. Thanks Tellason, for making an amazing pair of jeans for me to enjoy!
