Sheffield - Straight Tapered Selvedge Jeans - 16.5 oz.

(43 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 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 35.75" to 36.5". If you require a hem, please contact us directly after receiving your jeans.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA  


Design a piece of clothing and that shirt, jacket, or jean will age well, or will age poorly.

Sweat the details on the front end so when you are old and surly and combing through ancient pics of yourself, you see yourself in a pair of our jeans and you whisper in your own ear, "damn, not too bad".

Growing up in the 80's has me not saying this for a few photos, probably the result of dating this young lady that worked at Charlotte Russe. She convinced me that the Generra parachute pants and half shirt combo was the winning formula for 1985.

Ahh, the classics, the non regrettable. We work hard to fight the good fight to create fits that can pop into any decade and make you feel like a well dressed man. Enter the Sheffield jean. This was taken directly from our mid-rise, straight leg, Ankara. The adjustment was easy - from the knee down, taper it to the point where the leg opening is 1.25" narrower at the bottom.

Our 16.5 oz. selvedge denim is the burliest of the four fabrics that we make and as of now, we are well stocked. Grab yours today.

Enjoy and grazie 1000 for your support,

    Incredible pair of jeans. Extremely heavy duty but not so much that they are an inconvenience. Diehard 501 stf fan and these are like those with a slightly higher rise. Slowing building a collection of heirloom pieces that I can pass down to the kids and these will be in it. In retrospect i could have ordered a 31 rather than a 32 but I imagine with a wash they will cinch up a bit. Already contemplating purchasing another. I

    My favorites!

    I love the Sheffields -- not super skinny, but not baggy. Enough taper to but not too much taper. Just right all the way around. I think these are my new default jeans. 6' 4", 205 lbs and the size 36 fits nicely.

    Sheffield 16.5 oz Jeans

    These are heavyweight, great looking jeans. Before ordering I was concerned because they are listed as midrise jeans, but when I put them they are slightly higher in the waist, which I really like. The indigo color is a great dark blue. The denim is stiff and within the first week of wearing them they are showing very cool creases and look like they will fade nicely over time. I also like the slightly looser thigh, as I have muscular legs, and these allow good movement. I’m really happy with the fit, the denim and the look of these jeans. I will definitely order more.

    Perfect Pants

    Got a pair waist size 34, fits perfectly. Got them hemmed at a local tailor and started breaking them in the same day. Incredibly comfortable, they immediately look amazing. Couldn’t be happier with them.

    This is my first pair of Tellason denim and I have to say that I'm extremely impressed with the quality and workmanship in my pair. No issues that I could find anywhere. Excited to get this pair on the journey!

    The company knows what they are doing, it's very good that there is such a company. I've been wearing jeans since the ages of 5-6, it's been since the 80s of the last century, I always like real indigo denim

    Jeans the way they were meant to be. Beautifully executed, outstanding craftsmanship and materials. Worth every penny. My 6th pair of Tellason’s. I’m a loyalist. .
