Sheffield - Straight Tapered Selvedge Jeans - 16.5 oz.

(27 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


Not only is Sheffield the name of the city in England where The Clash played their first ever show on July 4, 1976 (with Buzzcocks and Sex Pistols!), the home of Premier League surprise team Sheffield United, and the home of our friend Ben from @clobbercalm -- it is also the name of our mid-rise straight tapered fit. This week's Item of the Week is the Sheffield in our proprietary Kaihara 16.5 oz. selvedge denim.

By the way, if you're ever in Sheffield, look up Ben and buy the lad a proper local beer, he has an affinity for watery American beers we're trying to remedy!

    Awesome Jeans

    This is my second pair of Sheffields and my second ever pair of raw denim but my first in this weight. I love it! It's only had a few wears so far but I can already tell they'll be my favorite once worn in.

    best fitting selvedge jeans in the market

    Posted by Gil on 7th Sep 2020

    i have tried over a dozen of US made selvedge jeans and nothing beats this one. I was extremely happy with the Anakara but these are even better. Was a little worried because usually not prefer tapered jeans. I got these on sale, my Ankara's are 14.5 oz and i really wanted to get a 16 oz pair so I took a leap of faith. The taper is super subtle and actually feels great. Recommend getting maybe 0.5" longer inseam than usual for a double cuff, the selvedge ID on the Kaihara fabric is insane good =)

    Even though this is heavy weight 16.5 oz, this jeans is very soft touch.

    Perfect Fit for me

    As with all Tellason products, my Sheffield pants are made with the highest quality, components and are breaking in like a dream. I have three pairs of Sheffields, 12.5, 14.50 and 16.5 oz and for me, all have a specific purpose. My 16.5 oz are actually my favorite. Absolutely love how they are breaking in. If you’re on the fence about making the purchase, do it. You wont regret it!

    Made in U.S.A gotta love the 16.5 oz

    These are great pants from the cone mills denim to the leather patch and thick rivets. I’ve been wearing them since the day I bought them. I’m hot soaking them as I type this this is the first time they have seen water. Look forward to buying a denim shirt soon. Get your cone mills denim before it’s gone !

    Super high quality. I'm happy to have jeans made in the USA. They fit me pretty tight around the thighs but that's my problem for not calling ahead of time to find out if they'd be roomy enough. Weightlifter thighs don't fit so well.
