Sheffield - Straight Tapered Selvedge Jeans - 14.75 oz.

(33 reviews) Write a Review

The Sheffield was taken from our Ankara Straight Leg fit, and tapered from the knee down by 2 inches at the leg opening. Made with our proprietary Kaihara Japanese red 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 35.75" to 36.5". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA


Ten years ago, We had a few fits in the stable with ambition to have a few more, in due time. We form our opinions, we get some feedback from people who know denim and are not afraid to share their viewpoints, and we pull the trigger when the time is right and head over to Pam's place to get a pattern started.

I was in Boston then, participating in an open to to the public event put on by Boston's own, Ball and Buck store. The venue was an incredible old brick warehouse, which basically describes a lot of that old city. Anyway, I was there to sell some pants. One dude stepped up to my fold out table full of jeans and spoke about what he wanted in a jean. Now, we are in "hockey country" so it seemed like every man around spoke about their love for hockey and had the legs and bunz to prove their commitment to their sport. They were also in need to have a tapered leg on a fit that suited their burly thighs to show off their new leather Alden boot or whatever. I tried to get them into our Ankara straight leg fit but you can tell that they were bothered by the straight leg effect of extra fabric below the knee.

The event was over, I sold some jeans and thought how many more I could have sold if we had a jean like the Ankara but with a tapered finish at the bottom. That was enough of a message for Tony and I to get going on our newest fit back in 2011- The Sheffield- mid rise, straight tapered jean. See, we listen once in a while...

    Sheffield - 14.75oz Jeans

    Posted by Peter Goldman on 2nd Apr 2024

    Kids bought me a pair some years ago as a gift (Thank you Richard Sachs). Thought the price was crazy but didn’t want return a present so I put ‘em on. Years and at least 10 pairs later, they’re all I own. Great quality and fit. You get what you pay for.

    As usual, Tellason knocks it out of the park with these 14.75 Sheffields. First soak and a little wear and they're already getting soft. Definitely my go-to from here on out.

    Extremely satisfied

    Tellason denim is hands down the best jeans I’ve ever worn. They offer several fits and finding the perfect one is part of the journey. Tony was very helpful in guiding me through the fits and helping to find the perfect TWO for me. Tellason has the best customer service on the planet. As a small business owner, it meant a lot to me for Tony to pick up the phone personally and reach out to me. You definitely have me a new customer for life. ¡TELLASON POR VIDA!

    Good Jeans For Big Thighs

    Posted by Aaron Marin on 15th Jul 2023

    Love these jeans. The weight of denim is my favorite. I have big thighs, so room in the thigh and more important the front rise was spot on. The inseam is also great, I am 6'4" (193 cm) and 275lbs (124kgs), so finding jeans that fit AND look good on me like skinnier guys is hard to come by. I purchased this first in black, and then recently purchased them in blue. Service is excellent and I like supporting brands from my childhood hometown.

    Great jeans. And better service.

    When the original size I purchased was too tight in the thighs the team was quick to get me a return label and send out a new pair, which are perfect. With their tightly woven edge and attention to detail, these jeans offer a distinct aesthetic that I absolutely love. While they require a bit of breaking in, the superior fit and comfort make them a worthwhile investment for denim enthusiasts who appreciate the blend of Japanese artistry and American manufacturing that Tellason offers.

    Sheffield 14.75

    Posted by Dino Pellegrino on 6th May 2023

    I don't have different jeans for different purposes, I wear my Tellason Jeans for Everything. They work hard fit great (maybe a little slim in the ass and thigh) so maybe size up a bit it you have a manly build. Work or play I'm in them day and night! Thanks Pete & Tony!

    breaking in

    Posted by Michael Greenwood on 29th Apr 2023

    These are breaking in just fine. Perfect fit and taper. Tough as needed. I also bought a slim tapered pair but I'm not wearing them until I need to break in a new pair.
