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.
I originally ordered the 29s and they were a bit too small. Exchanged for the 30s and they fit great. The exchange process was super easy and the crew at Tellason was very pleasant to interact with. The quality of the denim is evident at first look and feel and the cut is what I was looking or - slim and tapered but not skinny at all. Timeless look!
Can't believe i waited so long to try these! It really makes zero sense to buy two pairs of sweatshop-made Levis (or, honestly the LVCs, since they're no longer made in the States) when you can get these. Quality of the stitching is supurb, and the fit was great out of the package - I ordered my actual size and the waist fit great - they're snug, but generally I prefer slightly snug out of the box since they'll loosen up and stretch a bit. The color's classic - it doesn't look greasy like some raw denim, and after a couple weeks of steady wear I can see some crease marks setting in and hinting at future fades. These are a perfect alternative to Levis 511s, and honestly, are a much better cut with the higher rise and slight taper. They also have that blue-collar, workwear feel of Cone Mills denim. These are already a staple in my wardrobe, and I'll be buying another pair when they wear out!
Great slim fit, not too “skinny”. Been wearing them for a week now, breaking in nicely. Would recommend highly for anybody who wants a nice rigid denim that isn’t concerned about selvedge.
You can immediately get a sense of quality when you put these jeans on for the first time. I went with the Stock jeans so I can give Tellason a shot without breaking the bank and now I’ll be a lifetime customer. I would recommend Tellason to anyone who’s fed up with cheap Levi’s and other garbage big-name companies. Thanks guys!
This pair of jeans quickly became my favorite pair in my closet. Feels and looks just right, couldn't be happier with my purchase!
I finally found a real pair of jeans.
My new favorites. Price and quality is excellent.
I’ve been buying $50 a pair Levi’s 501 STF when I could’ve had these all along! I’m a tall, thin guy and have never been able to get a pair of jeans to fit right. I didn’t want to buy the newer styles with stretch, I wanted my jeans to feel solid and well made with high quality denim that will last. These Tellason Stock Slim Tapered fit that description perfectly. Fit and finish are beautiful and you can see the quality in the stitching, buttons, and denim.
