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.
Raw denim for $100. Designed by tellason. These may not be quite as nice as selvage but they are damn good and for $100 are kind of a no brainer for anyone on a budget or looking to dollar cost average their clothing purchases. Based on 2 weeks of occasional wear, zero regrets buying these.
I really like the crisp material. It has a nice thick feel not floppy like much of what you could get in the big stores. I will miss the clean and refined fabric Cone is known for. The fit is nice and tailored quite well to give a sophisticated look. Plainly these are humble jeans but they are by no means dad jeans.
Bought these Tellason stock as the price point was attractive - jeans look and feel like more expensive selvedge denim - very pleased with this purchase
I could not be happier with my choice. The fit and finish of the Tellason Stock denim exceeded my expectations. I have been slowly converting my wardrobe to made in the USA goods and Telleson is offering a first quality denim product for an amazing price. I will be a repeat customer.
I own some tellason ladbroke jeans.. Im very happy with them.. So... When I saw that had a line for less than a hundred dollars, I had to have a pair.. Excellent quality and locally made.. Doesn't get any better.. Mike c.. Santa Rosa
