    Great denim. Bought a size up from my waist size to accommodate athletic build and it worked out great.

    So impressed and appreciative of the quality and attention to detail. Also that Tony took the time to explain how this pair will fit over time. I'm 6ft, 155lbs, and size 30 fits perfectly. It's slightly tight around the waist since it's brand new but it'll give into a perfect fit. I didn't want too much bagginess and this is a great fit and the perfect black/material. Happy I found these guys!

    The only black jeans you will ever need!

    What I appreciate most is that the time that Pete (co-owner of tellason) took to answer questions I had about their denim. Pete not only answered my questions but explained their philosophy as a company and wanted to know about my interest in denim. This is my second pair of Tellason denim and I have to say that their attention to detail has increased! Their denim always has a one of kind quality feel, significantly better than any pair of jeans I have worn. FINAL THOUGHTS: These jeans are built to last and I will not have to worry about what abuse I will throw at them at work or at home. It will add character. I can say with experience that they’ll keep feeling and looking better as time and wear make them my jeans.

    Wish they were a little cheaper, but they’re worth every penny. I am planning a second pair of these black ones and a pair of the 16 oz ones as well soon. I also own a jacket from this company and all is quality. Love the fit, material, etc. I rarely review. I’m looking for a page on how to wash them because I still haven’t and I’ve had these jeans for quite a while now lol. Like a few years. Embarrassing but I swear they don’t smell haha

    Super high quality, crafted jeans, supreme attention to detail, the fit was perfect. The passion, and their obsession for everything denim truly comes through on the product. The Japanese Selvedge has become my go to jeans for both casual and smart. The over experience from the App to the Web, from the ordering process to delivery just made it a tremendous experience, it's a brand you can truly trust.

    The best jeans, the best fit.

    I own two pairs of Gustaves (these black Japanese selvedge ones, and a pair of the standard indigo 14.75oz ones I purchased a few years ago), and they're the jeans I wear literally everyday. I don't know if there's a stronger endorsement I can give than that. I'll keep buying Gustaves every few years as long as Pete and Tony keep making them.
