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.
A note from Tony Patella and Pete Searson (Tellason)
Our first two years of Tellason consisted of us getting out there selling one style (John Graham Mellor Slim Straight Fit) to a handful of shops around the world who loved good denim as much as we did. No big "collection" here, just one item that was built the right way and fit just about anyone who tried it on.
Lucky us, the boys at Tenue de NImes liked what we were doing and quickly developed a reputation as one of the top denim shops in Europe. About one year in with them, Tony met up with Rene and Menno in NYC and noticed something odd with Rene's beat up Tellason jeans. He is a stylish dude so anything would look good on him but in this case, Tony noticed that he had his John Graham Mellor Slim Straight jeans tapered at the bottom. Apparently, half of those Dutch guys who bought our jeans took them to a tailor to do the same. At that point, it was a quick decision to create our second fit (Ladbroke Grove Slim Tapered Fit). Maybe we should have called it the Rene but in keeping with our subtle Clash undertones, Ladbroke Grove (1:02 mark) got the nod.
To say this has been our best selling fit would be completely accurate so it was an easy choice to let this slim tapered beauty be one of our two fits in our Tellason Stock program.
For reference, I’m 5’4” and 130 lbs. Size 29 fit well. Trim, but still comfortable in the seat and thighs. Slightly loose at the back of the waist. The denim, hardware, and quality of sewing were top notch. The rise was a little too low for my taste. I will be exchanging for the Elgin model.
Good fitting jeans, nice feeling denim, reminds me of jeans we would get in the 60s, when jeans where made in SF.
very good quality and extraordinary finishes
Tellason does quality goods and this is no different. The fit is good and I can see that I'm gonna hold onto these for a very long time.
Hands down. The best.
Great fit and feels solid
hi Pete, first of all a very great thank you for your personal writing and greatings. Very personal and "unusual" in our world. I have appreciated it most.. The Jean ist beautiful and as indicated on the website. Great service and quick delivery into our small mountain resort. Will come to you back, soon. yours sincerely Harald from Zürich/Switzerland
I've had these for about two weeks now and am breaking them in. I'm 5'10", 165lbs, slim with relatively muscly legs and a decent rear end. The 31 is breaking in really well for me. On day 1 they were pretty tight and I thought about sending them back for a 32. I'm glad I didn't. I think they are trending towards perfect, not too slim/skinny, but the taper works for me. These seem like a rare value and I'm looking forward to trying the selvedge and maybe also the Blubaugh fit. Well done Tellason.
Quality and fit are superb. These are the non-selvedge stock versions of the Ladbroke. Thought I'd try before I go for the fancy ones. I will now go for the fancy ones. Best jeans I own. Tapered but will still fit over engineer boots. Thanks!
