Tapered Chino

(58 reviews) Write a Review

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


Tony and I are big fans of a proper pair of Chino pants. We wore them as high school kids early on with more of a preppy tone. Then off to SDSU in 1983, where there were plenty of military supply shops selling old, high waisted Chinos. We got them tapered as hell, which felt more Ca. punk than the preppies still rolling around town with their collars popped and a cable knit sweater draped over their shoulders.

With US textile factories closing, Tony found this fantastic twill, made in Japan. We feel it is the best we have ever used for our tapered leg and straight leg Chinos.

So straight from the SF factory to our HQ to possibly your doorstep, comes our Chino’s.

Enjoy ya'll,

Tony Patella

    These are super comfortable and feel like they will prove more than durable over time. I prefer jeans so I am not wearing these as much but so far I am very happy.

    Very well made

    High quality fabric and attention to detail in construction. But the fit is very baggy for a slim fit. I tried them on before getting them hemmed and I thought they would be OK, but after wearing them for a full day I felt very uncomfortable in them because they were so baggy. Too late to do anything about it now.

    Fantastic pair of high-quality chinos! The fit feels close to their Elgin fit. Not too tight and not too baggy.

    Tellason Chinos

    These are great. I love them so much I got a second pair. The material is great and they fit really well. My only suggestion is to offer them in different lengths.

    Best khakis in the world

    Posted by Michael Levy on 26th Apr 2022

    I love these khakis, and here is why. First, the material is heavier than most khakis, so they have a better drape and don’t look so wrinkled. Second, the fit is perfect—slim, but not skinny. Third, they are incredibly well-made. I’d consider sizing up from your normal Tellason size, however, because they don’t stretch out like denim.

    Sturdy chinos

    I like sturdiness of the fabric and the mid rise slim tapered fit. Well done!

    Comfortable Chinos

    Posted by Nik on 2nd Mar 2022

    I was skeptical of the reviews that said these Chinos fit well and were comfortable at the same time, but to the leap and purchased a pair. I have to agree, after wearing and washing, these Chinos softened up and are very comfortable. The fit is true to size. Not too baggie, not too tight. These Chinos look great and the fabric is very nice.
