The Tellason Stock Jean Jacket is made in San Francisco, California from 14 oz. non-selvedge sanforized Cone Mills denim. Two exterior side pockets, two chest pockets and two interior pockets.
Of course, we will always be true to our selvedge story. The whole tale speaks of what we love about real denim culture and the details that make this an important part of the denim landscape around the world. We are equally proud of our products built with non-selvedge denim from Cone Mills.
Back when Cone Mills was open in Greensboro, North Carolina, we felt a very strong urge to give them as much business as possible, sensing that more denim makers were taking their denim purchases overseas to save a few dollars. This never entered our orbit. In fact, we were talking about building jeans and jackets the same way, at the same place (San Francisco) as our regular selvedge products, but using a non-selvedge fabric, which takes the price waaay down.
Once we committed to our Tellason Stock project, we met with our friends at House Industries to figure out the branding part of things. We sent over some old pants we found at a police officer supply warehouse that had interior labels that were very simple and utilitarian minded. About a day later, the wizards at House Industries showed us their interpretation of a scaled down, industrial oriented branding story and that was it.

I have wanted to buy this jacket for a long time and finally pulled the trigger when it was on sale for Labor Day. It is incredible for the price. Extremely solid construction, minimalist, built to last. Bought it to be handed down to my son someday and I know that it will make it to that day. I’m 5’9” and 185 lbs with a 32” waist and broad shoulders. I’m glad I went with the Large. I wanted a little bit of room to move and this has just the right amount. Not sure if it would fit a heavier weight hoodie under it, but a lighter one or flannel for sure. Cannot wait for the fall weather, this will be the daily. Cheers guys
Quality jacket, perfect for cool days. 6’4”, 195 with broad shoulders. Large in most everything else, but XL for this jacket. Size up for a better fit!
I think this jacket is really the jeans perfect. The fabric is very solid without being too thick, hot and stiff. I think too many jeans fabrics lately are wayyyy to thick for comfort. This one is great. The only jacket I took with me on my recent trip to Europe and I loved it. Got caught in a rain storm and used it on a ship when it got cool at night. Nice big pockets and awesome cut.
Put simply, I could not have hoped for better.... I just got it a few days ago: just a real winner overall. Keep making items like this, you guys. Given how this jacket is and the Stock jeans as all, I will try some of your shirts next. Onward and keep doing what you do... Quality wins.
I’m incredibly happy with this purchase. I’m 5’11 and 180 and the XL fits perfectly. I wanted something to replace my beloved seven year old Levi type III trucker jacket and looked high and low before deciding on this one. It’s well made and the cone mills denim is crisp and beautiful. I researched the heck out of this purchase and tried on a number of other type III trucker jackets (including IH and PBJ) and chose this one based on the simplicity of the look, the well made construction and of course the value. I’m very impressed with Tellason. Looking forward to living with this jacket for the next 7 years.
I am 5’9”, 150lbs & a medium fits perfectly on my shoulders & torso. I either have short arms or sleeves run a bit long, but it’s no problem cause I’d cuff the sleeves regardless. Excellent weight denim, and extremely well made. I cannot believe there is another denim jacket on the market that could beat this quality for the price.
This is a perfect, American made, denim jacket. Comfy (i.e., not too ridged) and yet will wear in well. Perfect for Spring into summer when we still get flashes of winter temps here in the Midwest.
This jacket is terrific. I gave it a 30 min. cold soak, hung it out to dry, and then put it on. The denim has texture and attitude and isn't in any way fussy or decorative. I bought a new jacket in the first place because my son, who just turned 18, asked if he could have my old jacket (much repaired - different brand). But when he saw the Tellason he changed his mind and very politely asked if he could have it instead! Of course I gave it to him and now I'm going to buy another. Seriously, its that good. He's leaving for college in a few months so we won't be twins (a least not very often)
6’ 2”, 210. Emailed & Tony recommended XXL, which fits absolutely perfectly. Just enough room for a sweater or heavier shirt underneath. Comfortable right out of the box. Have had it a week and it’s already a total favorite & feels better with each wearing. A great investment.
