Jean Jacket - Black Japanese Selvedge Denim -13.5 oz.

(35 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


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!

Best from HQ,

    Can't wait to break it in.

    Kept sleeping on this, as the last couple years have been hard. When it came up on discount as "Item of the Week" I finally bit. It's a keeper like my other tellason jackets. Tony has fleas.

    Done Buying Clothing Unless Its USA Made

    I want to give this 5 stars right out of the box for quality, fit, and customer service. I also got the 16.5 oz in indigo and I will do a better review on both of them later when they're broken in. I also want to make a point to address fit for other people who dont know what size to get. Most will say to size down from your shirt size for an authentic denim jacket fit. I disagree. I am 5'11", 200lbs, 44" chest, 34" waist. Based on the other comments I initially ordered a Large. It fits ok at the waist and shoulder for a trim look but the fit wasnt my style. I ended up going with an XXL and its perfect. Alittle looser fit and way more comfortable. I can wear it over a hoodie. I wear XL in most shirts.

    My first Selvedge piece

    Posted by John on 31st Dec 2022

    I bought the Stock Coverall and wanted to do an exchange in person in a different size, and Tony was absolutely great to chat with! While there, I asked to see the black selvedge version of the jacket and my partner loved it on me and ended up buying it for me as well. Bothe the stock and selvedge versions are amazing and extremely high quality, and I always get compliments from friends and strangers when I wear them. Side note: I needed to size up from a S to a M, as I have a broader shoulder and chest area for my height (5’6” 155 lbs athletic build).

    Exactly what I wanted

    Posted by Travis on 17th Dec 2022

    I’ve been looking for the perfect black raw denim jacket and this is it. Very well made and just simply a classic. I’m 5’11” and weigh about 170lbs, I went with the medium and it fits exactly how I hoped. I can layer a light hoodie or heavy shirt underneath without it feeling too tight but it also isn’t baggy or too loose, which I didn’t want. I was on the border of getting a medium or large but after following the measurements they have listed I went with the medium. A large would’ve worked also if I wanted more of a work/oversized look, but that’s not really my style. This is my first piece from Tellason and they have earned a lifelong customer.

    I’ve been wearing the jacket for a few weeks. It’s fantastic! Great fit. Nice trim look. 5’10 180-185 athletic build. Size large fits perfectly. Lots of compliments. Still breaking it in. I’m sure it’s going to get even better like my Tellason jeans.

    What I have come to expect from Tellason

    Posted by Ross on 26th Sep 2022

    I stumbled across Tellason two years ago while watching a Todd Blubaugh episode on YouTube. This lead me to buy a pair of Ankara jeans. I now own three pairs of Tellason jeans and a few jackets. The quality and cut are excellent and the jeans and jackets just get better with age regarding comfort and look. My new Black Japanese Jean Jacket is just starting that journey, but straight out of the box I can see that it has the Tellason DNA that will reward a lifetime of hard use. Also living in Australia I have been impressed by how quickly my purchases have arrived.

    I have three years of hard wear on this jacket and have yet to damage it. It doesn’t have so much as loose thread yet. It is a perfect weight, the cut is great, and it really becomes your jacket after some wear. I can’t recommend it enough.
