When you put your choppers into a good meal, the brain can quickly go to "what are we having for dessert?" before the first bite. I suppose we asked ourselves the same question when we started making blue jeans 12 years ago, but instead of my signature peanut butter / chocolate / banana shake, we set our sights on well made Chinos, much like the same pants we tracked down in the early 80's from the military supply shops. Ours are made with a beautiful twill fabric by Carlisle in South Carolina and cut and sewn in San Francisco.
These chinos are a year round staple for me. The Carlisle fabric is quite durable, holding up well to years of heavy use both indoors and outdoors, with a softer hand than typically expected from a twill weave.
Usually 33" waist, bought 33" waist and they stay up without a belt, but aren't too tight.
As usual with this brand, a classic item of quality and style that will surely last a lifetime ! Straight fit as a pretty wide leg opening, so you might want to consider the tapped one . I do own and enjoy both .
A feeling of pure quality. Great color, fabric, and it is comfortable. This has quickly made its way as my top chino.
I've been searching for years for great chinos, and finally these have satisfied all my needs! Great cut, durable fabric, perfect colour. Amazing work by Tellason as always!
As a teenager we use to rummage through new old stock at The Workingmans store Dowtown San Jose, Ca... This was when the original owner was still alive. We’d find great Khaki’s made in USA from material spun here in the good ole USA... People were starting to shop malls back then for import merchandise. We as teenagers wanted great workware, especially being Union Tradesmen so we only had a few stores we shopped. Red Wing back then didn’t even have an import side of the store, they gave us a discount when we showed our Union Card... I’m 60 yrs. this is b4 all this workware became fashion. Anyways, back then if you sucked your gut in and could button the jeans, you knew you had the right size because they’d stretch to a perfect fit.. I bought these chinos and couldn’t remember how we fit them back then. A 36 waisted I bought because I’m 6’1 at 230 lbs. I fit my jeans at 35.. I had sent back the 36 because to snug I had thought. They sent me 38 because no 37’s. I was swimming in them. sent them back. Bought some Blubaughs at 35 (See my review). So I had to try one more time, the chinos in 36. Sucked my gut in, button them up and after 15 minutes if not sooner, a perfect fit.. I’ve washed them and they didn’t bounce back snug... Perfect! Need me some green Army pants now that I know Tellason’s sizeing. Hopefully they always stock Chinos, Green Army Pants, and blubauges because all you need is the basics... The ones that are in the know, know what the hell im talking about. Great freak’n Chinos!! Build a great Vietnam era Army Pant straight leg button fly. And you’ll be spot on Tellason. Stay with it
I like chinos when I want something a litter dressy than jeans but still relaxed and comfortable. The fit and construction of these chinos is excellent. This brings me to the finish of the fabric which is better than any other chinos that I have worn. They shure do bet the heck out of Bills Khakis.
Bought two pair of chino's.... The more you wear and wash them... the better they get. They now have that real broken in look and feel.. They are Real Chino's....... Thanks lads... For Excellence Clothes and a Excellence customer service, regards John
This is an excellent pant. Its excellent quality is unusual in terms of material, crafting and fit - I highly recommend these. I bought two of them.
