    New Favorite Jeans

    Posted by Jeff W. on 26th Sep 2021

    I just got these a couple of weeks ago and they are already my favorite pair of jeans. I'd purchased a pair of the Tellason stock straight legs earlier, and after I was so impressed by them, decided to take the plunge with these. Definitely not a decision to regret, and I'll definitely be adding some different styles to my closet. The only thing I wish is that you had these in a black denim (in keeping with a Clash theme, you could dub them your Jail Guitar Doors style)

    Get every weight

    Posted by Matt on 16th Jun 2021

    The jeans are well made, so it took me about five years, but I’ve finally worked through the three weights. (I still wear them all; they won’t die.) They’re all good. No weak links in the lineup. My last two pairs were the heaviest, and I didn’t expect to like these lightest ones as much as I do, but with the heat wave, it was worth a shot. Glad I did. It seems like everything that they make is still getting better. I’m down for life.

    Superb finishing

    Superb finish. I took a 12.5Oz, because there was no more Japanese black in 13.5Oz for my size 34. The best cut for my body is really the John Graham mellor I've heard of a 19Oz ... if that's right, I can't wait to see it. Very happy to have had a handwritten card by Pete Searson. Thank Tellason

    Great fitting, classic pair of jeans

    Posted by Cole on 26th Aug 2018

    No bling and no bedazzling, this is straight forward quality Cone denim. It took a couple of tries, but Tony and Pete worked with me to find the perfect fit. JGM are my new fav pair in rotation. The 12.5 feels more substantial then it's weight - can't wait to break em in. Gents, thanks for making this great denim!

    Superb selvedge denim and perfect fit

    Posted by Flor on 30th Jun 2018

    This is one of the best fitting pair of jeans I’ve ever owned! The 12.5 oz Cone Mills selvedge is a perfect year-round denim in Northern California. The indigo is superb, and if I may add, quite unique.

    More Tellasons. All the Tellasons.

    Posted by Unknown on 17th Feb 2018

    This is my 3rd pair of Tellason jeans, and I keep coming back. I haven't thrown out the old ones, of course. They're stitched and faded and lovely, too, but I always add a new pair every few years so I have some "nice" ones (we know they're all nice). This is my first set of slim straights, and the fit is lovely. Classic drape, but still clean and trim lines. Timeless style. The lighter weight denim still feels substantial. I haven't had them out in the hot, hot weather yet, but I suspect they'll be nicer than my heavier denim.

    I’ll be ordering another pair. From fit to quality, these are the best jeans I’ve ever owned.
