Jean Jacket - Selvedge Denim - 16.5 oz.

(82 reviews) Write a Review

Jean Jacket made from our 16.5 oz proprietary Kaihara Japanese raw selvage denim (sanforized). Two exterior side pockets, two chest pockets and two interior pockets.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


When you own a denim company, there are choices to make. Do we chase the fashion unicorn and fight for space in the stretchy, flash in the pan latest and greatest, or just relax and make things that could have been made 75 years ago that are still important today. After all, this stuff is made of cotton and like it or not, will wear out at some point. Of course, our eye has always been on quality, quality, quality so at the very least, the jeans (or jacket) you get from us will last longer than the average equivalent out there and will look good along the way.

Naturally, we started with the 5 pocket jean, but quickly aspired to make our own classic denim jacket.

    Like all Tellason gear, it’s tough, it’s cool, and the minute you put it on it’s yours and yours alone.

    Superb quality

    Posted by Jason Y. on 15th Nov 2023

    I've been on the hunt for a good American Made selvedge jacket for a while now, and most of the brands I've encountered cater to smaller frames. Tellason's offering however has more room in the shoulders and arms for guys with athletic builds without drowning the midsection in fabric. For reference, I am 5'10'', 44'' chest, 19'' across shoulders, 29'' waist, 31'' hips, and the XL fits very nicely. Just enough room that I can use my arms without discomfort with fairly snug arm cuts. Other brands I've worked with (3sixteen, Rogue Territory, etc.) tend to bind in the shoulders or end up being FAR too long in the body for someone less than 6' tall. This take on the Type 3 is amazing. Comfortable proportions without looking boxy, and is priced very well. The denim quality is high, with good rigidity and very nice stitch details. I'll be regularly wearing this from now on. If you have an athletic build, (broad shoulders and muscular), you'll love this stuff, its not just for the slimmer guys! I had rapid email responses from Tony about sizing and even got a hand-signed thank you note upon delivery. I love being able to support American brands that pay attention to quality materials sourced from good origins (Japan). I'll be back for the stock denim jacket and the coverall jacket for sure!

    Jean Jacket 16.5 selvedge

    I don’t think I have ever left a review but felt it necessary since I love this jacket so much. The fit is perfect ( large) I am 6’2 175 and the large fits perfect. I like that it’s slightly longer as well. have purchased 3 other selvedge jackets from other companies and disliked them so I finally thought I would give another try and happy I did. Fabric is amazing and it didn’t take long to start to break in. Definitely recommend

    Couldn't find any reviews for the small, so here I am. I'm 5'5", 145lbs and the small fits perfect, like its tailored. This jacket is incredible, so happy I made the purchase! Excited to break it in this fall

    Amazing fit, I love this jacket. I’ve been wanting a nice Type 3 for a while and a friend of mine turned me onto Tellason, I’m very glad I went with them. I’m 5’11”, 200 pounds, and go between large and XL clothing. I got the large and it’s a perfect fit, I can comfortably wear it with a shirt underneath and it looks great.

    Good stuff

    I didn't end up keeping the jacket because it wasn't quite the right size. But the denim quality is superb and so is the customer service.

    Perfect jeans jacket

    Posted by Hans on 17th Jun 2023

    This jacket looks and feels just right. Often take xxl in other designs, but xxxl fits just perfect here, snug without beeing too tight. Good denim, heavy without being uncomfortable..

    I’m 6’2” and ordered the XXXL and it fits. After trying and returning a few denim jackets this one fits. The quality is superb. I highly recommend this one!
