Ladbroke Grove - Slim Tapered Selvedge Jeans- 16.5 oz.

(25 reviews) Write a Review

Slim tapered fit. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese orange 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  


There are certain things in life that if you wrapped them up in protective plastic when they were new and unwrapped them 50 years later, they would be relevant and damn sharp looking. I am thinking of the '72 Camaro, the Balorama sunglasses Clint wore in Dirty Harry, and the Indie Boot Aldin made that took a beating from Mr. Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

That car needs to be driven how the designers meant for it to be driven. Those boots do not need to stay away from dirt and grime and should never be considered precious. For us, we see this Ladbroke Grove slim tapered fit as that “wrap-it-up-in-plastic-bust-it-out-50-years-from-now-and-look-sharp jean”, full stop.

We love how it evolved from the early days of our one and only, John Graham Mellor slim straight fit. Some of the lads wanted a jean that was more tapered at the bottom so, whammo, the Ladbroke Grove was born.

Enjoy and thanks for your support,

    My fourth pair of Ladbroke Grove. OK, so Kaihara isn't quite as good as Cone Mills, but for me these jeans are still a great cut, fit great, and wear great.

    I’m 6’ 185 pounds and these fit perfectly. Excellent quality and craftsmanship. Haven’t worn them a ton yet but they are starting to break in nicely

    Awesome jeans! If you crave the stiff raw denim of old in a slim and tapered cut, then these jeans are for you. Exactly as described - better than I expected. Communications with Tony and Pete were rapid and very helpful. These are my go to jeans from now on.

    This is my 3rd pair of ladbroke grove jeans. My first pair in this fit were the 12 oz and I loved the fit, but decided to try the heavier denim. I usually patch my jeans as they wear and find the heavier denim easier to repair. This fit in the 16oz denim is turning out to be my all time favourite and I suspect I will keep buying these for regular wear. Once you nail down what fit suits you, you can’t go wrong with anything from tellason.

    Love the jeans, the fit, the quality and the look. I also have the Black and they are both money! Great value for the price. Best jeans I have ever owned.

    Awesome high-quality product! In fact, I just ordered another one (14.5 oz.) a few minutes ago! My first purchase was the stock version to find out the fitting which was perfect.
