Straight Leg Chino - Carlisle Twill

(23 reviews) Write a Review

Straight leg, button-fly Chino.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA of US-woven 9 oz twill and finished at the legendary Carlisle Finishing Co. (ca. 1956) in Carlisle, South Carolina. Fit guide:


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.

    Damn fine

    Needed something else to wear during times of extreme heat and these were the answer. It’s like if dickies and Ben Davis bred and made this truly American baby. Solid buy!

    Size runs a little small compared to JGM jeans, but fabric feels great!

    Posted by Tim Hyland on 1st Aug 2020

    I've been a life-long buyer of JGM jeans. Life-long meaning ever since Tellason started making jeans, with only one model, before they started calling it JGM. For 9 years, my waist size has gone up and down slightly from 30 to 31 back to 30 to 29. The 29 inch JGM's fit great. I had never bought any other product from Tellason, but I thought the chinos would be good. I bought the 29, but they were way too tight compared to the 29 inch waist on the JGMs. I'm returning them and will order the 30 inch. However, the fabric feels good and solid. I hope they last and wear as long as the jeans!

    Carlisle Khakis

    Posted by Lawrence DeVore on 25th Mar 2020

    Overall a very nice pair of khakis. I wish the material was a bit heavier, but I see this weight of fabric on a lot of khakis, so no complaints. The sizing is the same for me as the Ladbroke Grove, but the fit is entirely different of course. It's still too cold in MN to be wearing khakis daily, so I'll have to write back after a few dozen wearings. These will be a Spring/Summer staple.

    Always Quality

    Posted by Ted Charles on 22nd Mar 2020

    This is my second pair of chinos and 5th pair of pants (3 pairs of jeans). I love your products. They always fit as advertised and are a true quality garment. I would say the only downfall of Tellason products is this; they are such high quality you’ll have a hard time wearing them out and truly needing another pair. I buy more because I love the product. Your customer service is also top notch.

    fit, form and function

    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.

    Love at first sight and first wear!

    Posted by Charles on 5th Sep 2018

    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.
