Jean Jacket - Selvedge Denim - 12.5 oz.

(17 reviews) Write a Review

Jean Jacket made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese dark blue line raw selvage denim (sanforized). Two exterior side pockets, two chest pockets and two interior pockets.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA 


We start here with our 12.5 oz. proprietary selvedge denim made by Kaihara in Japan. Lots of good denim out there but the fact that this was cooked up by us for our use only gives us a bit of the warm fuzzy...

Cut and sewn in San Francisco, just like our jeans. Made with subtle details that the end user will appreciate such as the side entry pockets and interior pockets lined with a heavy twill fabric that won't let you down years from now.

A ton of denim companies offer this up in their own assortment and those who do not, should. Ultimately iconic, and as that American treasured designer Ralph Lipchitz said years ago, "fashion is over quickly, style is forever"...

Damn right about that.

    I love this jacket

    Posted by Sean on 16th Sep 2019

    This is my second jacket from Tellason. I also have the Black Japanese Selvedge Denim Jean Jacket. That jacket became my favorite overnight and a year later has led to me selling other jackets because they no longer get wear time. I decided I do need to wear more than one denim jacket so the 12.5 ounce Cone Mills Jean Jacket seemed to be the perfect complement to the Black. This has proven to be so true and now more jackets are being sold because when it comes to denim jackets, I will now only wear Tellason. There is simply no match for the fit, finish and premium construction that goes into a Tellason. Add to that the exceptional customer experience and you have what I believe to be the best denim jacket money can buy.

    Superb Fit and Impeccable Construction

    This jacket is an expression of high craft. It is exquisitely made of very nice US-made Cone selvage (I have the 12.5 oz. version). Inside and out, it reeks of almost obsessive care by the people involved in its design and construction. But, for me, the key point is fit. On my 155 pound/ size 40 suit body, the fit seems as if the jacket were custom made. Not too loose, not too tight, with a perfect sleeve length. (Note, here, that I have a 32 inch sleeve length -- the tall and lanky may have an issue with the sleeves being too short.) I also appreciate the subtle understatement of this interpretation of the classic trucker design. Nothing unnecessary is added -- and there is a very welcome absence of external logos. If a jean jacket can be called elegant, this one's it.

    Great quality and fit

    Great match with my Gustave Slim Tapers and boots. Very high quality of course thats mandatory from Tellason. I really like the fit but personally would like it to be a little more slim at the waist but thats purely subjective and nitpicking. Very happy with this jacket that will last me for years. Cant wait to see how it fades.

    Takes me back

    Have had this one over two years, and wear it constantly. I just soak it in the tub or sink and is has a great blue/black fade. Classic close fit denim jacket.

    After trying at least 3 different premium jean jackets I finally found one that is cut and made properly here in the U.S.!

    One of the best jean jackets I have ever worn. It takes me back to the 70s Levi and Lee two pocket trucker styles.
