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.
Great quality great fit, like all the other items in own from this brand. Each time I open this envelope from Sausalito, I become the 11 year old kid I was , all excited opening his Christmas gift !
Just got these delivered, and they don't disappoint, I held off on these for awhile since they are pretty expensive, but I have the garage jacket in this same fabric and I just love it, and since that mill is going out of business I didn't want to miss out, super glad I pulled the trigger, amazing material and fit, really like this cut as it fits me just right (6'1" and about 187) room too move but clean look. I have been trying to buy less but when I do buy better, its nice to support stuff made in the USA and these are worth it
Very nice but one pocket was not sewn completely.
What can I say, Tellason makes some serious high quality and fantastic looking khakis that look and feel just like what Indiana Jones would be wearing. The tapper look is perfect that eliminates the traditional baggy look, but there is still plenty of room to move and feel extremely comfortable. I highly encourage everyone who wants some great looking pants that actually look slimming on you, but don't feel tight or uncomfortable. I've played college tennis and soccer; so needless to say, I have muscular claves and thighs, and these pants never feel tight. In fact, they're actually the first pair of khakis that look amazing on me! I only wish we could get Tellason to make them in other colors so I can replace my other chinos with these pants alone!
I've been looking for pants like these for years, literally! I finally found them. I read in another review they were similar to army surplus khaki's from the 80's, which is exactly what I was after. For reference, I'm a slender hipped female, 5'6" 115 lbs and the 30 fits perfectly. Also a good length for me. Thanks for making such great pants out of great fabric!
Another great pair of pants from Tellason. I have 3 pairs of the Elgin’s and I got a pair of these chinos for Christmas. Love the weight of the cotton and feel of the fabric. Reminds me a pair of khakis I got at the Army Surplus store in the 80’s, which were my all time favorite pair of pants. The taper on these is just right, not too tight at the bottoms. Anyway, Tony and Pete continue to put out quality products and I love the fact that they are made in the USA.
Tellason nailed it on this one. These chinos have a very nice fit and finish with the usual attention to detail you would expect from Pete and Tony. These are very versatile and dress up or down with no problem. The Carlisle Twill is a nice mid-weight and the inside button flap is a nice touch. You can't go wrong with these.
Tellason’s have always delivered on their products in the past and this is no exception. These are some of most comfortable and well made trousers I’ve come across. The Carlisle twill fabric is brilliant, not too heavy but not too light, either with a touch of sheen only typically found on quality vintage Chinos. The cut is perfect, especially for a pair of tapered fit trousers that retains the slim fit profile whilst at the same time having a comfortable fit around the thighs and top block. The stitch work too is excellent, the best imo amongst US made brands, especially at the equivalent price point of many other similar Chinos. I often struggle to find brands that provide this level of quality product in the market nowadays (outside of a few niche Japanese brands with what most ppl would consider to be eye-watering prices), and will definitely remain s repeat customer for years to come, cheers!
Excellent material, fit and tailoring. Only issue is button fly, which I do not like. My own fault as that was in the description. Good product and service.
