Jean Jacket - Black Japanese Selvedge Denim -13.5 oz.

(52 reviews) Write a Review

Jean jacket made from a Japanese red line proprietary selvedge 13.5 oz. denim.  Interior and side pockets.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA  Fit Guide


I own one suit. It is black and fantastic and made by Sir Paul Smith. I enjoy wearing it, no doubt, but when you boil it all down, I am a denim guy, not a suit guy.

At the risk of getting yelled at for being underdressed by someone's grandma, who had a bad day when they realized that her Apple Genius Bar appointment was never confirmed, this black jacket may be a nice replacement.

For example, spilling anything on a good suit can really put a bicycle pump in your front wheel on the night, but dripping some chili dip or a chunk of chevre on something denim will barely move the stress needle.

So have a look at this dapper classic denim jacket and enjoy it!

    Perfect midweight denim jacket

    Posted by Beej Powers on 4th May 2024

    I have many jackets. Maybe too many jackets. But I couldn’t pass this one up. 13.5 is a pretty perfect weight for a midweight jacket. The cut is very nice. I’m a shorter guy with a big chest. This fits fantastically. Usually the arms are crazy long to get the chest the right size. This one is perfect. And I really appreciate the placement of the hand warmers. They’re not on the very sides of the jacket like some, they’re front of center where hands naturally fall. I know more expensive to produce but worth it. The black selvedge is very crisp and clean but it doesn’t feel like I’ll have to fight to break it in.

    I’m a big dude, 6’3 255lbs, so it can be hard to find a good fit. XXXL fits great, and looks even better. Classic style, classier looking in black. Stellar Tellason quality.

    This jacket fits close to the body, is sturdy and will age very well. It is a versatile look; good on your motorbike as well as for going out at night. It will be a classic in your wardrobe. Just buy it.

    Getting that human touch on every order is truly the best. You can tell that it’s a small company and they deeply care. Never have been disappointed with anything I’ve purchased. I own the black selvedge denim jack and the stock indigo. They both fit fantastic and there isn’t a stitch out of sort. Can’t wait to break the black denim in this summer on motorcycle trips. It’ll be in my saddlebag all summer. I recommend this product, great fit, great quality and just a good looking piece.

    Very well made. So much so, I got some jeans right afterwards. Fit is smaller than I anticipated. I’m 6’4” 210. XL fits great, but may want to size up next time.

    Top of the line fit and finish

    Outstanding color, fit, and finish. Strong rivets and buttons. Well-made and fits like it was tailored for me. I am 5'9" and wear a 42" athletic coat. Sleeves fall perfectly. Collar is very well cut and the points connect well. This coat allows some shrink to fit with a bit of room for my size. I recommend buying your true size.

    Perfect Jacket

    Posted by Jim Conley on 12th Jul 2023

    This is one of the nicest denim jackets I have owned. Not a stitch out of place, and the quality of the denim is outstanding. At 6'4", 210lb, with a 45in chest and 36" waist, I chose the 2XL. Tellason jackets are the only denim jackets that seem to fit me perfectly in the sleeves, the back and front length, and in the chest. I wish they were a bit more tapered in the waist, but not a big deal.

    Solid Jacket

    Posted by Andrew on 27th Jun 2023

    Pete and Tony make me feel like I am their only customer even though there are probably thousands. I'm going turn this jacket into tatters but it will take years get there! 6'3" 210 lbs and was recommended an XL by Tony and it fits great. Shrank up a little around the chest and waist after a soak but surprisingly none in the arm length or shoulders. Was a bit scared when I saw the color of the water in the soak but the jacket is still BLACK. Solid jacket.
