I have had Tellason jeans for a number of years now and being someone who cannot wear them to work I went for a pair of olive fatigue pants a few years ago to wear to the office. I love the fit of the JGM jeans and slim fit fatigue pants and decided to try the tapered fit chinos when they arrived at Berkeley Supply here in Colorado. Loved them so much I ordered a second pair for my rotation. Compared to the OrSlow slim fit army trouser that I also enjoy I would say the Tellason twill is a little heavier and does not wrinkle in the wash as much. I typically cold wash gentle only when needed and hang dry- then use a steamer to smooth out and shrinkage has been very minimal and they get more comfortable with each wear. Highly recommend these pants!
Ordered my true size and found the waist a bit generous. Washed em and had them taken in and they haven’t left my legs since. Very comfortable and plenty of space to maneuver.
Fit it is perfect, quality garment, love them.
Excellent quality and fit! Never disappointed with Tellason...
Really pleased with these pants. The fabric is light enough for summer but still fells substantial. The cut is just right on the taper. Not too skinny, not too drapey. I bought my normal tag size. They were a bit generous in the waist when raw, so I gave them a warm wash and dried them on low temp. Now the fit it perfect! Be aware that the inseam is fairly long. I'm 6'3" with long legs, and a single cuff makes them a perfect length.
Also, the construction is great. Tucked belt loops and nice button fly with double buttons at the waist. Leg seams are chain stitched but not double-felled. but this give a clean but still slightly rugged look. Looking forward to the wear and aging on these and will probably buy a straight leg pair, too, eventually.
Well constructed. The Carlisle fabric is soft yet durable. The taper is not too aggressive, the cut is not too tight and very classic. They can be dressed up with a shirt and tie or dressed down easily. Not too much shrinkage that I have noticed so far. Overall a great purchase.
I ended up exchanging for a size down and getting the pants hemmed - the guys at Tellason were fast, friendly and efficient with their customer service.
Recently discovered these chinos. What a nice surprise. Reminds me of a pair I had in college that were (almost) indestructible. Great fit, fabric and love the button fly. Thanks Tellason.
I thought I was not going to like these since I am not a tapered kind of guy. They are really not that tight, the fit, material and color is very classic and comfortable. To me the fit is quite similar to the Sheffield jean. I ended up going up a size since I toss them in the dryer. These are not a dress up but more of a traditional military work chino. If you want an alternate from wearing jeans I will definitely give these a try.
I was a big fan of the tapered chino in the Cramerton cloth that was discontinued. I was excited to see that a replacement cloth was sourced from Carlisle. The new fabric is tremendous. I think it actually has a nicer hand to it and washes better than the Cramerton. I would highly recommend these chinos. The fit is awesome and they wear extremely well. Definitely worth every penny.
