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,

    I love the Gustave. Perfect fit for me. I have the 14.5 & 16.5oz. It’s taken a couple of weeks to break in but awesome quality and the fit has become better and better. Great service, great people to work with, outstanding brand. Thank you.

    There is only one denim brand ...

    Posted by Richard Hearsey on 31st Dec 2016

    ... and that brand is Tellason. From the product to customer service, if you can get your hands on a Tellason garment you will never look at another brand again. Tellason products are incredibly well-made from the finest materials and have a range of products to suit everyone. If you do one thing in 2017, make sure you check out Tellason.

    Wow! These are first rate. High quality and look terrific. Built to last a lifetime. Took a few days to break in the 16.5 oz., but now they are my go to jeans. Thanks for making such a great product here in SF.

    Outsatanding Quality and Construction

    I was looking for a minimal, thick, sturdy, USA made, ethical pair of jeans and I found them! Great fit. Bomb-proof denim. I look forward to trying other weights and fabrics but first I gotta get to breaking these bad boys in!

    Best US made jeans on the market

    This is my second pair of Tellasons, my first Ladbroke Grove couldn't be happier with the jeans. When buying selvedge denim I looked past all the hype and ridiculous presentation of other brands. The simplicity and outstanding quality of Tellasons is why I'm a repeat customer. The fit is amazing. I look forward to seeing what the brand will offer next.

    Killer fit

    Love these jeans. Perfect fit, built to last a life time or two and great service from Tellason. I took a gamble by ordering online and happy I did. My girl loves they way they fit on me and surprisingly comfortable for such a heavy denim. Thanks for the hand written note on a thank you card guys!!

    great fit

    I have a big butt and big thighs but I don't like a wide leg opening. These for great in the thigh and have the perfect diameter at the ankle. The denim is pretty heavy but after two weeks it's starting to relax a break in a bit.
