Ladbroke Grove - Slim Tapered Selvedge Jeans - 12.5 oz.

(9 reviews) Write a Review

Slim tapered fit. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese dark blue line raw selvage denim (sanforized). Button fly. Extra heavy pocket bags. Bottom of back pockets lined for durability. Leather patch by Tanner Goods, Portland, OR. Graduated inseams from 34" to 36". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


Our Ladbroke Grove slim tapered is our top-selling fit -- it has a low front rise, but the delta between the front and back rises is a bit greater than other low-rise jeans. Literally no one wants to see your plumber's crack. The leg is slim and tapered, but they're not extreme in either characteristic.

As for the name, Ladbroke Grove is a road in West London where these guys (among others) shook things up back in 1976-77.

    Stylish, USA made jeans

    Not only is this style a timeless classic, the construction of the jeans is superb. As a worker in the textile industry, it’s evident that a great amount of care was taken in not only the cutting process, but also the quality of the stitching. The denim selection is very high quality, too. These are the epitome of San Fransisco made blue jeans.

    Great product

    This is my second pair of raw selvedge jeans and I love them. Very quick delivery to the UK. I took some time looking at different cuts and sizes. Many of the latest designs in EU are so tight that jeans become uncomfortable if made of non-stretch fabric. This cut is a great compromise, scores on fit and comfort.

    very beautiful jeans

    denim and finishings are the best but I think that it has to be, from knee to down, more tapered (up to 18-19 cm down), for my taste. Hello Tony, FORZA NAPOLI .

    Great Denim Great Company

    Posted by bryce on 18th May 2015

    I had a question on sizing and wanted to get my perfect fit. I sent an email asking for advice and was personally called back. Tony spoke with me on the phone and helped me understand the different fits. He also stayed in touch with me as I was super picky and ordered several styles to try one. In the end I went with the Ladbroke. The color and denim is awesome! I'm really excited to see how they fade. The Ladbroke was the prefect fit for me because I like my jeans to sit lower on my hips. Great jeans, great company!

    Great fit & feel

    These are my third pair of Tellasons, but first Ladbroke Grove style. My others are JGM's (14.5 and 16.5 oz.), which I also love, but I wanted something more tapered. The fit is accurate. I like the lighter weight and the taper is not overdone -- just right. Based on previous experience, I expect these to wear like iron and age with grace and style.

    FIt, Fabric, and Attention to Detail

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Nov 2014

    I have had this pair approximately six months and they are my favorite pair by far. They don't even go back in the closet. The White Oak Cone Denim seems to breath better than the Japanese denim. Conversely it also feels heavier than it's 12.5 oz rating. The break in is amazing it the way it forms to you over time. In my humble opinion it also fades better than the Japanese denim. Not used to this "vertical fade" people seem to appreciate with the Japanese material. Best of all I think is the fit. Slim enough to look sharp without looking like I am an old guy who is trying too hard. They stack well with boots and look great with sneakers. Every day I wear these jeans is a good day. I have a lot of good days.

    I've finally found my jeans

    Posted by John Petroff on 27th Aug 2014

    After a long search, I can finally rest. The Tellason Ladbroke Grove 12.5 oz is my favorite pair of jeans. I love the cut, the build quality, the All-American sourcing and production, the list goes on. They are the perfect jeans for me.
