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.
The Jean looks nice and the cut is perfect. However, I’m unable to use it as it transfers the dye too much and it has stained my car and clothes. I washed it three times and still transfers a lot of due.
Typical Tellason quality, best cone mill jeans raw denim, just like my other straight leg Tellason stick, only a little more figure-hugging. Thanks Pete, thanks Tony for an excellent job. Danke Euch Beiden für hervorragende Arbeiten in Eurem kleinen, exzellenten Unternehmen, macht weiter so. Michael aus Berlin
The Tellason slim tapered fit may be a great fit to try even for those who assume slim fits aren’t for them. This is a good cross between a slim fit and a traditional straight leg. With a subtle amount of taper. Without a doubt this is a better version of fit for me than the 501 ever was. Especially with the detail la and button fly. The Cone Mills non-selvage is almost the same denim used in the classic 501 stf (just heavier), with the same famous all-American blue color that Cone is known for. It’s a bluer indigo than the Kaihara Japanese selvage Tellason uses for its selvage line. And Cone denim always promises to give great vintage fades. These come with all the amazing Tellason details - you just save on the fabric price. I especially like the white tag. I’m looking forward to having these in rotation.
It's still early in the process of breaking them in, but I was immediately impressed with these jeans. The buying experience was easy, and shipping was fast. I immediately took them to a tailor to get the length right. The quality and construction were clearly good from the start, and the fit is perfect. Highly recommend!
I’m thrilled I found Tellason and can’t wait to continue supporting a small business that produces superior products. Their jeans fit exceptionally well and will last me a very long time.
I bought this pair of Jeans as Christmas gift for my hubby who loves denim. He is impressed by the solid craftsmanship, the cone mills fabric and the style. It only took a few days to arrive Hong Kong which is another big plus.
Good quality raw denim and solid craftsmanship in these jeans. If you don't care about having white-lined cuffs broadcasting that you spend $200 on your jeans, Tellason Stock is a good move. I decided to give a small American manufacturer a shot after feeling disillusioned with buying department store Levi’s 501s. The slim tapered jeans from Tellason stock look good with sneakers and heritage style boots. The leg opening won’t accommodate the padded collar of my work boots, but that’s ok. I got my regular waist size of 30, and the waistband fit great but I will note that the tightness around the seat and crotch was uncomfortable at first, but has stretched out after 3 days of wear. The 14oz denim is substantial and will wear in beautifully over time. Thanks Tony and Pete for making affordable high quality jeans.
This was my first pair of raw denim jeans. They fit very nicely with a tapered fit but not too tight. Looking forward to breaking them in more
Amazing quality! I was very impressed with the quality of the product and also the customer service they took the time out to contact me directly as I wanted the jeans hemmed to my length before delivery. I will be supporting and referring friends to this business. Vote with your dollars made in USA and high quality your not gonna find another pair with this level of quality for $100 trust and believe. This is an American Legend in the making.
