Tellason Stock- Slim Tapered Fit

(67 reviews) Write a Review

The Tellason Stock Slim Tapered jeans are made in San Francisco, California from 14 oz. non-selvedge sanforized Cone Mills denim. Our Slim Tapered fit has a low-to-mid front rise and "normal" back rise with a button-fly and the bottom of the back pockets are lined for durability.  Post try-on hemming info here.


Tellason Stock- I remember Tony and I trying to sort out a name for our non-selvedge jeans and jackets. For some reason, it did not come easy. I harked back to high school and thought about the car culture back in the early 80's.

In Southern California, there were a bunch of tribes but the dominant vehicle of choice was the VW Bug. Within this iconic car, was the Cal Bug crew and the stock crew. I was part of the stock crew. We did everything we could to get our Bugs looking like they just rolled off the assembly line in Germany. The Cal Bug crew did the opposite.

Dual carbs, lowered front end, dump the wind wing for a one piece side window, dump the front turn indicators on the two front fenders, install a Hurst shifter. The list goes on and on. I did not have the pocket book for these modifications so I stayed in my lane.

Like everything else we do, we make and name stuff from our experiences and hopefully it fits with whatever the hell we are trying to accomplish. Tellason Stock is a tight little program focusing on high quality, non-selvedge Cone Mills denim. We make two jackets and two fits for our jeans.

Enjoy the ride and thanks for listening,

    Best American Made Denim

    Posted by Corbin S on 20th Jul 2023

    These are a great pair of American made denim at an amazing price. I bought my fourth pair of Gustave at the same time as the Stock. The Gustave are perfection in my opinion and the stock slim tapered are close behind. The Stocks are less rigid, being easier to break in. They fit just slightly looser in the leg than the Gustave. The stocks use the classic dark orange thread through out, they do not have any of the signature Tellason splash of yellow thread on the back and side. The rivets are a much brighter copper color. The Stocks feature the ‘T’ stiched into the back pockets with jacron patch saying “TELLASON STOCK” in blue type on a white background. These are just some of the additional differences I noticed. These are such an amazing pair of denim, and for the price! I would recommend these to anyone; especially for people that aren’t a little crazy about denim detail, or just getting into denim, or if you have a specific use that will thrash your pants.

    I am extremely pleased with the jeans I have purchased from Tellason. All three pair are stock, 2 slim and one regular. The fit and finish is top notch. I’ve been looking for solid jeans made in the USA and these are great! Perfect weight, great color, and great service. If you are on the fence, go for it, these are amazing. I wait for them to go on sale occasionally and buy them then. 5/5 stars!

    Tellason Stock Slim Tapered

    Posted by Evan L on 11th Apr 2023

    6ft 6in, 32 waist. Skinny/athletic build. Perfect pair of jeans...only to be outdone by Tellason's other offerings. Waist, seat, leg width, and length are all perfect for me. It's like these jeans were personally tailored. 11/10 amazing product.

    Stock Slim Taper

    Posted by Jake on 4th Apr 2023

    After a few weeks of break-in, I can easily give this 5 stars. The color and fabric feel are great. I am 5'11", 175 lbs, ordered size 31. It was snug at first but stretched a bit after a cold soak, hang dry, and wear. The waist and seat are now perfect; however, I found the thighs to still be too tight for comfort. I suppose I have "athletic" thighs after all. I had to forcefully stretch out the upper thighs to make them comfortably fit my legs + phone and wallet in the pockets. Don't let that discourage you! The Stock program seems to be a great deal for entry into raw denim. High quality for the price. I recommend this cut for the skinnier guys and the Stock straight cut for those with thicker thighs/butt. These are good jeans in their own right, but they also serve as steppingstones for sizing correctly for Tellason's pricier raw selvage options. The Stock slim taper's fit corresponds to Ladbroke Grove, and Stock straight to Ankara. If you're like me and these thighs are too tight, perhaps the Sheffield is the best to upgrade to.

    These are hands-down the best "buy for life" jeans for the buck. No selvedge, but who cares. Unlike some of the jeans out there with more artisanal fabrics, these are reinforced where it count, so you won't break a belt loop or button off the first time you try them on. I'm 5'10 and have a lanky build, and the 31s fit me perfectly. They have a timeless rock and roll cut, with enough space in the leg opening to accommodate cowboy or engineer boots, but tapered enough to look great with Chucks as well. Classic. One thing I'd like to point out - these do not seem to be vanity sized the way other brands are. If you work out and want the thighs to fit, order your actual size or one size up, because they will tighten up after the first wash. The handwritten note made my day. I could've easily paid this much for import Levis and there's no way the owners of the company would've hand-signed a postcard with the packing slip. I love supporting companies like Tellason, and will continue to do so. Thanks guys!

    Slim tapered Stock jeans

    Posted by Paul Alberghine on 2nd Jan 2023

    I’m 6 foot 2 and 208 lbs and the 38 Tellason slim Stock jeans fit perfectly. I usually take a 36 but order fed down correctly after reading site and comments. The quality and craftsmanship is obvious and I cannot wait to break them in. They need to be hemmed about an inch but want to cold wash first before altering. Hoping for more 38 in other pants as I love this company.
