Straight Leg Chino

(28 reviews) Write a Review

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,

    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!

    Just like I remember.

    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.

    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.

    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!
