    Fourth pair of Gustave black jeans, tenth pair of Tellason in total. Haven’t worn any other brand of jeans since 2016.

    I have a few pieces from tellason now and really appreciate their absolute top notch quality. These black jeans are perfection. From the moment I put them on they fit perfectly. The denim is sturdy and smooth and I know will age beautifully. These might be my new favorite, although I say that every time I open a tellason package. Well done.

    Insane quality

    Posted by Riley on 29th Sep 2023

    I have worn these over a thousand times. I’ve had them 6 years and I think that’s a conservative estimate. Kinda sad I haven’t met my goals to outgrow these as a thin manlet but hey at least these jeans fit. I bought a second pair and only wear them on occasions when I want pure black jeans. The old pair has formed an insane patina of grey/black. I’m thinking of grabbing another pair soon, just in a slightly less slim fit so I can start the patina on those before I outgrow these. One of the rivets did come out of the watch pocket. They sent me a new one with my new jeans order at my request, but I botched putting it in so I’ll have to have a local person do it. These jeans have been to both coasts, all across the country, on mountains, in oceans, camping, snowboarding, to countless concerts, in countless mosh pits, to multiple jobs, through multiple romantic experiences, to parties, holidays, events… I have lived in these for years and they deserve nothing less than 5 stars. Thanks for making these. I’ll always come here for my selvedge. I got a pair from Gustin and they were maybe 1/2 or 1/3 the price and the fit and quality was just nothing like these. This brand is THE jeans brand. Period.

    Gustave Black

    Posted by Evan L on 11th Apr 2023

    6ft 6in, 32 waist, normally 36 inseam. Skinny/athletic build. Same excellent quality that I have come to expect from Tellason. Perfect fit from waist to leg width and inseam. Masterful quality as usual.

    Gustaves in Black

    Posted by Chris on 26th Mar 2023

    Fantastic pair of jeans. I had them in blue, bought this pair in black and just wore them as part of a smart-casual conference shindig with a nice white Oxford shirt. Very sharp jeans, really slim look. Very well made as with all Tellason jeans.

    I now own multiple pairs in the Gustave fit and I love all of them (fit, fabric and all). Can’t wait to break all of them in! Do yourself a favor and order now

    GUSTAVE Slim Tapered + Black Selvedge Jeans 13.5 oz. Japanese Selvedge

    Posted by Dave Rodriguez on 21st Sep 2022

    Literally my favorite jeans ever I have ever owned. Super tough. Super cool. I have a pair that I bought a few years ago that are nice and broken in, so this newest pair is the backup. The fit is perfect and the black is super extra deep and dark, which is just the way I like it. When they break in, they crease and fold in all the right ways and look even cooler. Only thing is they're tough and unforgiving until you break them in, but totally worth it. These jeans are what made me take notice of the Tellason brand.
