Gustave - Slim Tapered + Selvedge Jeans - 16.5 oz.

(21 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...

    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.

    Best there is

    Posted by Adam on 2nd Dec 2015

    The Gustave is the best skinny fit jean out there and the 16.5 oz Cone Mills denim is heavy duty stuff! All praise aside, the fit is comfortably loose in the seat allowing for mobility and tapers to the skinny leg I've been used to seeing since high school. All the details are subtle and elegant and the denim is perfect. I got these jeans in the end of November and will be glad to have them broken in by Spring.

    GUSTAVE - 16.5 OZ 16.5 oz fabric is very stiff if compared with my other 14.5 oz jeans, but it is excellent for me as I like the stiff feeling very much. It is natural, raw and prefect. The fit is good as well, the leg opening is 14" is just fit for me with 5"10. It looks very slim and I love this stuff very much.

    killer denim right here

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jun 2015

    Been searching for a slim, tapered jean to add to the collection - something with room to move in the top block but that narrows somewhat significantly from the knee to ankle. The Gustave is it! The 16.5 oz is sturdy but not as starchy/stiff as other denim of equal weight out there. Only had these on for a couple days now, so we'll see how it fades, but it's already softening up even without a soak. This is my first pair of Tellasons and I'm super impressed. The quality and attention to detail won't let you down. Oh, and these guys shipped out the pair literally within 30 minutes of my order going through.

    Really high quality jeans, great fit, great service!

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Mar 2015

    These are really high quality jeans. Great denim, lots of thoughtful details, nice slim fit and they look great. I wear a 33 waist normally and the 33 fit well, maybe even slightly loose, but I imagine they will shirt a bit after the first wash. Deliver was super quick from coast to coast. I highly recommend Tellason.
