Straight Leg Chino

Straight leg, button-fly Chino.  Made in San Francisco, Calif. USA of heavyweight (10 oz.) Japanese twill.   Fit guide


These Chinos have been a key ingredient in our Tellason salad. Tony and I go back a long way with great memories of buying these up at some of the military supply vintage stores around the campus of SDSU in the early 80's. I remember my favorite shop was down this steep hill across the street from my barbershop (shout out Arnold's). The owners were fantastic and had a sewing machine in the back, along with a fired up kitchen that always seemed to be making a fresh batch of curry!

We would settle on a pair, then carefully instruct them to peg the hell out of them to the point where getting in and out had us pointing our toes straight down like some sort of plié move in ballet class.

Great memories, and I hope those lads down there still have the sense to keep those military surplus dreams going.

Enough about curry and pegging aspirations. Go Aztecs,

    Feels Like Navy Issue Wash Khakis.

    These feel like my old wash khakis when I was in the Navy which I loved. These are made with nicer material - but a little trip down memory lane is cool. Thanks Tellason.

    These are the best chinos I’ve ever purchased. Incredibly comfortable, fit and finish are spot on. These are my other favorite pair of pants.

    Solid chino. Well built. Great looking Japanese twill. I’d like I little shorter rise on these but that’s my only gripe. These are roomy blue collar chinos that can be dressed up easily. Will be in my lineup for years.

    decades ago, I went to a high school with a very strict no blue jeans policy. To get around this, I discovered surplus officers chinos in local stores. All cotton button fly trousers became my favorite pants. Fairly easy to find in denim. My source for button fly chinos disappeared, any queries I made elicited bewilderment. I was skeptical when I saw the Tellesons. My wife encouraged me to try them. She was right. These are bad ass. The fit and feel is spot on. Thanks!

    Impressive chinos

    Posted by Laurens on 13th Nov 2022

    Have been very impressed with these, the fit for me is the big appeal. They have a high enough rise to allow room through the seat and thighs but not too high as to disallow tucking in a shirt. My only gripe after purchasing these chinos in the old Carlisle fabric was that the material didn't match the quality construction and fit. Thankfully the updated 10oz Japanese fabric is a noticeable improvement and really stands out compared to the old material. Hoping that Tellason make these in a few more fabrics as I would buy them all.

    The only chinos I choose to wear

    Posted by Ian Milio on 14th Jul 2021

    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.
