I mainly wear heavy weight Tellason jeans. So for the summer opted to switch it up and look for light weight replacements and since the only pants I own are Tellason’s I bought the straight leg chinos.
The fit and feel of these pants are amazing and the quality is what you would expect.
The fit, feal and weight are what I like.
These Chinos are cool! Simple, and sweet. After one wash and a hem shortening, I discovered that there was a further shrinkage after the second wash. Fortunately, the shrinkage at the hem line was between 2-4mm. The rest of the pants shrunk slightly at the waist also, but not to unusable or uncomfortable level.
As we speak, I have ordered another pair of the same size and I will receive it on Monday from Tellason!
My only gripe was that when my dog greeted me at the door on the first day I used these pants, he did cause a thread to break on the upper thigh area (real bummer). I had had the impression that the Carlisle fabric was tougher than the stuff used by Dockers and others.
These pants are the perfect alternate to your favorite Tellason jeans. They are comfortable, soft and crisp feeling and, most of all, look really good.
I am hooked on these, just too bad the size I wanted for the tapered ones were unavailable at the time of purchase. Maybe they will be available when I try to get a pair next time.
Just simply an extremely high quality cloth, and super solid non-nonsense construction -- makes it all style and all substance. I hope these are restocked in my size, I'd get several more.
Great fabric, super solid construction, no nonsense - pretty much a perfect pair of chinos. Thanks Tellason!
Outstanding quality and the fit is incredible (not too tapered for a relaxed old guy). I'm 6ft 3in and 83kg - the 33in waist fits perfectly. 10/10 chino that can't be beaten. Wish I bought 2 pairs while they still had my size. Tellason forever.
Stop reading reviews and buy this product!
First off, Galey & Lord closing their plant is like Cone Denim closing their doors... end of an era (or 2 or 3!), buy while you still can! Tellason is known for denim, and I am a huge fan but their biggest secret are the "secondary" items ... duck canvas pants, chinos, sweatshirts. These pants treat you the same way as your favorite jeans, the more the wear, the more they thank you. If I am not selling you on them, I have a 75 year old dad that jumped on board ... he even wears them with just a white t shirt like he did 60 years ago, (from a guy that only would wear collared shirts with khakis till he got these pants!). Good work once again Pete and Tony!
