(18 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...

    Heavy enough to stand up on their own

    I've been searching for a great pair of raw denim for a couple years and have not found anything I've wanted enough to deal with the break in. Tellason's are just different. The company is fucking rad, customer service is top notch, and their products just scream quality. These pants definitely take some patience, as it took me nearly 2 weeks of daily wear, but they are now becoming soft(er) and more flexible. Buy yourself some Tellasons's, you deserve it.

    From garment quality to customer service, tellason is the only place worth buying jeans from. Durability is a big deal for me and tellasons are the best out there. They even include a hand-written thank-you card in all orders. Who else does that? No one, that’s who

    Same Tellason goodness in a slimmer fit.

    My other pair of Tellasons is Ladbroke Grove and I like them a ton. These Gustaves, in the same size, are significantly tighter and in the 16.5 weight, super sturdy. They take some wears to brake in, but they are a great jean in a very slim profile.
