Gustave - Slim Tapered + Selvedge Jeans - 16.5 oz.

(27 reviews) Write a Review

Slim tapered +. Compared to our Ladbroke Grove slim tapered fit, the Gustave has a slightly longer front rise and a slightly lower back rise, and the leg is slimmer from the thigh down. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese orange 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 32.75" to 35". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


A note from Tony and Pete...

Our "Gustave" fit was 100% created by our friend, confidant, and captain everything, Mr. Brian Awitan.  He had a pair that he doctored up with the help of a tailor that did not look or fit like anything that we had in our quiver-  an average to low rise, ample thigh room, then a pretty heavy taper from the knee down. I suppose we should have called this the "Awitan" but looking back, he was neck deep with another terrific denim company and the owners may not have been too pleased with our project with Brian.  Life is short.  Work with your friends and make things that matter...

    16.5 Oz. Gustave

    Posted by Tim on 10th Apr 2024

    I absolutely love these genes. I love my Ladbrokes as well, but this is a fit that I have been looking for for years. If you are a tall, slim dude, these will look great on you.

    Lean and Clean

    Posted by Michael Mucha on 1st Oct 2023

    I love this cut in the 16.5 oz. I am 5'8" 155 Lbs. with muscular legs. These jeans are slimming and give you a nice refined silhouette for business settings. Pairs well with a tweed jacket, bow tie and wing long as they remain dark indigo, which I prefer. I can get away with it at our Rotary Club, which is a suit and tie crowd.

    My favorite new pair of jeans

    Posted by Chris on 17th Dec 2022

    Fantastic jeans giving a really slim and structured look. Sit a little lower around the waist than most pairs, gorgeous thick and dark denim, really well made. My most recent jeans buy which have quickly become my favorite pair.

    Ladbroke Grove 16.5 oz

    Posted by Mike on 30th May 2022

    This is a great pair of jeans! I am very happy with the fit and REALLY please with the customer service. If you are tired of buying 'Imported jeans' (from China) and want a great American product, built to last, I would recommend that you give them a try. This is my third pair of jeans from Tellason and I believe they are well worth the money. Treat yourself.

    This is THE jean

    Posted by Corey Landolt on 3rd Oct 2021

    I am a raw denim enthusiast, I own denim from several of the big brands and discovered Tellason about a year ago. It started with their coverall jacket. After receiving my jacket, I knew I needed a pair of their jeans so I grabbed a pair of the raw indigo in the Ladbrook Grove fit. The fit is excrement and the color is breaking in incredibly but I wanted something that fit me just a touch slimmer through the calves. I'm 5'11 and about 170 with an athletic but lean build. This is THE fit for me. The jeans look like they were made for my body with just enough room to move around freely. The build quality is second to none and I've worn them every day since I received them. They are already my favorite jeans and I look forward to really breaking them in.

    Great jeans!

    Posted by Mark Thorpe on 21st Jul 2021

    I am really pleased with my jeans. I bought the 16.5 ounce denim and they are definitely built to last. The taper is steep, which I like. They are slightly lower rise than I have worn in the past, but this doesn't detract. Although stiff (as you would expect), they are surprisingly comfortable to wear. For the moment, I am just wearing them around the house. Will do this for a few weeks before wearing out. I had the hem altered before delivery. Customer service was great and the alterations done quickly. A very happy customer!

    Great heavyweight denim

    Posted by Matt Lyngard on 29th Mar 2021

    You just can’t go wrong with Kaihara Mills denim. And Tellason have picked a good one- the denim is subtle, smooth, crisp, and promises great classic fades, especially in a denim world increasingly filled with too much heavy, slubby denim . The Gustave cut is my favorite and I’m looking forward to their evolution. I think the cut will work really well with the 16.5oz denim.

    The Very Best in All Ways

    Posted by Colorado on 24th Feb 2021

    The best fitting (true to size) and best looking jeans I've ever owned! Moreover, and dare I say, the BEST customer service I have ever had the pleasure doing business with in my life! I am a life long loyal fan now because of how great Tellason's Customer Service is and how much they care about their customers!
