These are really excellent quality. The fit is comfortably snug, with a nice higher rise. They are pretty crispy and coarse right out of the box, but it’s amazing what a single cold rinse, hang dry, and a few hours of wear can do. They soften up, little by little, with immediate fear of knee honeycombs. Beautiful Kaihara denim, and made in San Fran, which warms my heart. I love em. I actually bought two pairs of the 12.5 and two of the 14.5 in the Elgin, because I loved the cut so,much. The lighter ones have a slightly grayish, beautiful tint to them, so not dark blue. The 14.5s are more blue, and a bit darker. I would advise ordering one size down from your normal waist size. I usually go 30, but the 29s are perfect, and they gently give up to an inch in the Australian with wear. Gorgeous denim, love em.
I’ve been wearing my Tellason in the Elgin fit for 6 months now and absolutely love them. I’m pretty average in build, heigh, and weight, but find that most denim companies make the rise too low and the thighs too tight. Pete at Tellason worked directly with me to find my best fit. He went above and beyond to provide individual attention to my questions and I really appreciated that. Forever customer.
I Iike the finish and the fit is exactly a stated on the website
Great fit and quality.
These are my new favorite jeans. The fabric is reminiscent of the way shrink-to-fit Levis used to feel, but these only shrunk a tiny bit. Solid, stiff cotton that breaks in nicely to the body. They went from a bit baggy pre-wash to perfect post wash (air dry). I'm a 5'6" female, slender build, 118 lbs and the 30 fits great (not tight). I like the rise, it's comfortably high in the back and the front is right at my belly button. Perfect!
My wife doesn't know if yet, but she is now in a thruple with me and these jeans.
Great Everyday pant. The taper is perfect for sneakers and boots. The 12.5 oz. isn’t too heavy in the warmer weather as well.
The only thing as good as these jeans is Tellasons customer service. Being new to raw denim, I didn't know where to start for the right fit. After a phone call from Pete, and trying on a couple of different fits, the Elgin was my pick. They're the perfect cut slim jean. Not too tight, not too loose. The slightly higher rise makes a huge difference if you're an active dude. As far as the weight, I'm also really pleased. Even though the 12.5 oz. is their lightest, it's still sturdy as hell and should be great for year round wear. A nice surprise was also that this particular weight has had zero bleeding onto anything whatsoever. Easy to wear right out of the box. If I ever manage to wear these out (seems unlikely) I'll definitely be back for some more.
I thoroughly enjoy the jeans, the quality of the denim they are made of and the craftsmanship in the jeans. I have been complimented about them and asked where they are available and have given them the e-mail address. I now have three pairs of these jeans, two of the Elgin and one of the straight leg Ankara.
