Sheffield - Straight Tapered Selvedge Jeans - 16.5 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 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!

    Perfect Fit for me

    Posted by Jasalvas on 15th Jul 2019

    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.

    Great jeans

    These jeans are a through back to my youth, although, they are not shrink to fit. These jeans are heavy, although, I believe there is a heavier weight denim available. I just got these, so I haven't really broken them in, I think that takes some time. No doubt these jeans last a long time, and I look forward to them getting softer and having a faded look.

    4rth pair

    Posted by Jonas Rake on 13th Mar 2019

    This is my fourth pair of these. Perfect fit, beautiful denim. I never would have spent this kind of money on jeans in the past, but I can honestly say they are worth every penny. The quality is the best you can get, and they will last. Can't recommend enough. Thanks for making such a quality product!

    Another Home Run

    Posted by Charles on 5th Sep 2018

    As other reviewers have said, it's like the Ankara with a taper. After the initial soak, I found the pair to be closer fitting than the my 2018 Ankara (12.5 oz), but this is probably because it is a 16.5 oz. Otherwise, this pair is really a solid build.
