(41 reviews) Write a Review

Mid rise slim tapered fit. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese red 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 34.75" to 36". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans. Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


Meet our Elgin 14.75 oz. mid-rise slim tapered jean. This fit was developed after listening to some informed and opinionated customers who dug our Ladbroke Grove low(er) rise tapered jean. Their request was simple and single minded - make the Ladbroke Grove longer in the rise.

One meeting with our pattern maker, Pam, and bippity boppity boop - the Elgin was born. Our factory whipped up a prototype and it was perfect. Nothing at all to change here. We jumped into production and carried on with our day. Nice when things go easy on you once in a while...

If you have our Ladbroke Grove, know this - the Elgin has a rise that is 1.5" longer and the rest of the dimensions are exactly the same and our 14.75 oz. fabric (like our 12.5 oz. and 16.5 oz. fabrics) are proprietary from Kiahara since 2019. This is something we are extremely proud of and understand that it takes many hands and a common goal to create something special.

Thanks for reading and cheers to you for keeping this little denim engine cooking!

    Have been buying Tellason jeans for 15 years, exclusively, best fit/quality… and made in USA. The BEST.

    Elgin 14.75

    I really like the quality and look of these jeans. Initially I thought I’d get them hemmed by the service provided by Tellason, but I decided I like the rolled up look. They look great with my Red Wings.

    never knew I was "slim" before now

    54, 190, 5'10. I was a boy up when TuffSkins came in slim and husky, and I wasn't either. But these "slims" fit like my 501s except they make me look thinner -- tailored legs taper toward the ankle. Stylish with a sports coat, and comfortable for all day, except maybe not for a day of walking around -- then I'd want more room in the legs. Mid rise means no plumber butt. These feel "dress up" and stylish, and are world's above my 501s in terms of their feel on my body.

    I feel the 34inch feels bigger than my usual 34s I hope it doesn’t get much looser as I wear them in. But then again maybe I’ve dropped a bit of weight! Otherwise the quality is excellent, hard to find good denim in Australia. Thanks.

    These are hands down the best fitting jeans I own!! I can’t wait to break these bad boys in… Tony and Pete were super helpful as these were my first pair of Tellason’s. They most definitely won’t be my last!!

    Elgin-Mid Rise

    Posted by Max on 6th Apr 2022

    Really like the mid rise on these, a rarity, much better than most jeans that have a too low of a rise. The fit is slim, snug, not skinny. looking forward to the fade.

    Born To Be Worn

    These are my favorite Tellasons because I'm a higher-rise, slim-tapered kinda guy. The cut and quality is superb. Based on my experience with my other pairs, they will last approximately forever or thereabout.
