    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    These feel indestructible

    Posted by Bradley on 27th Aug 2016

    My previous favorite jeans tore in a few places in under a year. Tried to find alternatives, but everyone seems to be selling weird stretchy blends of cotton and spandex or similar. Found these on the hunt for 100% cotton jeans built to last. Still need a bit of wearing in (slightly scratchy texture on the inside, and very stiff), but these feel indestructible. Fit was true to size. Looking forward to having these for quite a while. Oh, also, had some quick back and forth with customer service on sizing. Very quick and helpful responses.

    Great quality and even better service

    Posted by Zack on 9th Mar 2016

    Great fit. I'm 5"11 180lbs, pretty athletic thighs and the 33 is the right fit. I have a 32 as well but the 33 allows better freedom of movement in the crotch. My thigh measures 24.5" and any bigger would be extremely tight, as in can't tie your shoe tight. The free shipping both ways to get the right fit is priceless and mine always arrive in two days. Pete and Tony provide the type of service that almost surprises you with hand written notes and phone calls to double check things. Best online ordering experience I've ever had. I own three pairs of tellason pants and will likely own more when mine wear out.
