Best jeans period. Fit perfect
These are my first pair of JGM. I have a pair Ankara in black 13.5oz. and I really like them, but I wanted a pair that we're slimmer but still straight leg. I usually wear a 31"-32" waist. I got the 32" based on a measurement of an old pair of Levi's I love. I haven't washed yet, only have had them for about a week. The slim/straight leg opening is perfect. But it's a bit loose around the waist, but that's because of the low rise, I suppose, which is lower than I'm used to. In fact, I wanted the Blubaugh for the slim/straight fit but having a higher rise fit. Unfortunately, they didn't have my size at the time. Overall, these are great jeans. 4/5. Now to break them in!
These are very well made, simple with no BS. With the heavier denim than I am used to I expected them to feel rough but that’s not the case. Customer service was excellent making returning easier for the correct size and the hand written Thank you cards from Tony and Pete were nice. They care about what they do.
I took a 16.5Oz, 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.
Japanese denim is very beautiful.
The best cut for my body.

The fit on these jeans is incredible, and if you're familiar with raw denim, these are certainly the highest quality whether you end up with American or Japanese denim. Even after several washes (sometimes you really have to wash them...) over years of use, these maintain their dye and fit perfectly. I suggest sitting these in a cold-water bathtub for an hour when you first get them. Alterations process is simple and very well-done.
I have a few other pairs of Tellason Jeans in various weights. I decided to pick up a pair of 16.5oz and have mostly worn them while riding so far. They are heavy enough to keep me warm on a crisp morning but still comfortable to wear all day
This is my second pair of JGM. The fit is considered a slim straight but the Great thing is that the jeans are not slim tight. The ones I received the denim material is from Japan. It is a different shade then the White Oak Cone denim from my Sheffield’s but I like the look of the indigo just as well. The jeans are of superior quality and I like the feel and weight of the 16oz. The company has very good customer service and get back to you right away. The free shipping and returns are a plus since I do feel the jean sizes are irregular and one 35 did not fit like another 35. They also offer a free hem which I’ve used in the past. The only minor detail was that I had to send the jeans back for a re-hem this time since one leg was left longer than the other. I can notice the previous stitch line on the material after the repair but I guess is not that bad.
I bought my first pair of Teleson jeans in 2009 at UnionMade in San Francisco -- back when Telleson had only one style -- and it didn't even have a name, but is what became the JGM. Tony and Pete were in the store, but I opted not to meet them, not realizing this would be my jean of choice for the next ten years (and hopefully more). I'm the type of loyal consumer ,who will buy the same thing over and over again, until something goes wrong. Like Levi's 501's -- they changed the cut, but not the number, and they no longer fit the same. I forget what I was wearing in the late aughts, but I tried on the Telleson jeans. They fit perfect, and they cut hasn't changed one bit. A year ago I bought the lighter weight 12.5 oz, and was pleasantly surprised. I'm trying out the new 10.5 oz. now. I love breaking in my own jeans from raw denim, I wash them only when absolutely necessary, and I hope Telleson never goes out of business!
