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.
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.
Tellason jeans may be my new favourites. Shipping was just a few days to Vancouver. And it felt like Tellason valued my business.
Thanks to the excellent service team, I snagged my perfect size and couldn’t be happier for fall! The Stock Slim’s are a fantastic product and I’ll be proudly wearing these everyday.
Needed an extra pair of jeans to work in my rotation. Stock jeans were the perfect choice and price. Great fit and look. My only gripe ... the rear leather label. But it will be covered by my belt.
So...for the last decade plus, I have always tried to buy/ support local businesses - coffee, restaurants, my barber, etc. Since this quarantine though, I have thought a lot about products made in USA. My tools, my clothes, my footwear, good luck with the electronic department. Anyways, I had only worn Levi’s for the last 40+ years and didn’t feel good supporting a business that farms their, once good brand Out to 3rd world countries. Finding a US based denim company is extremely difficult. Or so I thought! Tellason has proved to go beyond what I thought were great jeans! This is my 2nd pair and I have already picked out my 3rd. My pile of Levi’s are going to my local charity. I shall never look back. By far Tellason has the best fit, strength and coloration I have ever slipped my skin suit into. Keep up the good work and please don’t farm your goods out to be made elsewhere.
I initially purchased these one size too small. I reached out to Tellason for information on sizing and exchange. I received a call from Pete. He was incredibly helpful at explaining the fit and process for getting me the correct replacement. I now have the right size and a new favorite pair of jeans. It's the personal service and exceptional craftsmanship that set these guys apart. Thanks Tony and Pete.
I’m not an expert in the world of denim. However, I am very discerning by nature. Every Telleson Jean that I have purchased has been a 10. Yes, as in the Bo Derek and Dudley Moore movie “10”. They fit well, feel good, and force me to walk properly. They adjust one’s confidence. And as for me, as you can probably tell, one can never have enough. I recommend buying more than one pair, lest you risk wearing-out the knees.
