    My first Tellason denim. I am one month in and loving the fit, quality and weight of the John Graham Mellor 12.5oz. Super easy exchange for a larger size. 33 was perfect for 6-3 tall and 185 lbs and still long enough to roll the cuff!

    just right

    Posted by Nicki on 3rd Nov 2021

    I thought it might be helpful to write this review as a woman buying men's denim in a high-rise world. If you're looking for a perfectly straight leg, a nice rise that's not too low or too high (just under what I would call medium) and a slimming vertical texture to your denim, this is the pair of selvedge jeans--whether you're a girl or a boy. I was worried and I have never spent this amount of money on jeans, but I think these will be my "perfect pair." I'm 5'7", 120 pounds, and like things a little loose. I got a 29 and they wouldn't button. The exchange process was friendly, easy, and expedient and the size 31 that I received a little over a week later are just perfect. I truly love these jeans.

    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

    Posted by Dalichoux on 29th Dec 2019

    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
