Tellason Stock- Slim Tapered Fit

(72 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,

    The best. Period.

    Tellason continues to amaze me with their quality and value. Pound for pound, this company punches above its weight. You’ll not find a higher quality pair of jeans at a price like this. Fit runs true and is comfortable in all the right spots. Run and grab as many pairs as you can afford. Also buy their selvedge jackets. I own two. Thrilled.

    The Real Deal

    I'm wearing these for the 3rd day in a row today. I'm 6' 3", 192 lbs, and the 34 in waist is perfect. I am really liking these. Can't wait to get them worn in, and then buy my next pair! Thanks.

    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.
