    My favorite Jeans

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2019

    Bought this same pair again since I wasn’t sure how much longer the 16.5 oz cone denim would be in stock. This fabric is awesome and I think the JGM cut is perfect. These jeans fade really well too. Honestly my favorite jeans.

    I am 6' 180lbs. trim build.

    Wear size 32 X 34 in Carhartt
    Wear size 31 X 34 in Dearborn and DSTLD

    I needed to order a size 33 from Tellason and cuff the pant legs...

    Love these pants!

    It is a stretch to say a $230.00 pair of jeans is a bargain but I bought 2 pair of Tellason in 2012. I wore those jeans 6 days a week for almost five years. These jeans last. I tried another US made brand for half the price and they did not last a year. Look $230 is a lot to pay for jeans, but if made in the USA means something to you and you are looking for a quality product that lasts, these are your jeans. I just bought two more pair. See you again in 2023 Tellason.

    Sizing is all over the place

    Posted by JAK on 13th Jul 2017

    These are my third pair of Tellason jeans and I want to love them but they are way too baggy. I ordered the same size I usually wear in Tellasons and they were so tight I couldn't even close the fly. So I ordered the next size up, still too tight! I ordered another next larger size jean I've ever worn before because I didn't want to do the go around again. Basically got tired of the back and forth and my local dealer doesn't carry this model. So now I've sucked it up and been wearing jeans that sag which looks terrible. I highly recommend only buying these jeans in person since the sizing is so off.

    The quality of the denim, the fit, and workmanship are the best I've seen.

    One Pair of Jeans to Rule Them All

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2017

    If you want to simplify your life by purchasing a very few, but extremely high quality items, this denim is the way to go. Breaking them in and wearing them has become a hobby.

    High Quality

    Posted by Jared Crook on 3rd Jan 2017

    I've been wearing my 16.5 oz JGMs for about 4 months now and they are my favorite pair of jeans. The fit is phenomenal. Not a skinny jean at all, but not too baggy at the ankles or crotch. The 16.5 oz cone denim ages beautifully and is some really durable stuff! The jeans are very high quality and the price is well worth it. In my opinion, Tellason makes the best jeans on the market. The fact that they're stitched up in San Francisco using denim from North Carolina and hardware/thread sourced in the USA as well makes them that much more great to me. Well done guys, well done!

    Buy USA

    I have the 16.5 oz and the lesser weight, both in the slim fit - Mellor. I'm 5'10" with a 33 waist and weight 180 lbs. They're stiff because they're new, but the fit is great. If you have thicker legs, they're not too "skinny", just slim.
