26 Jan Tellason Jeans: Tough Textiles, Classic Cuts, Made in America
In keeping with the current revitalization of American-made textiles, we bring you Tellason jeans. These selvedge jeans are sewn in San Francisco (the original home of blue jeans) with denim made in Greensboro, North Carolina, at the Cone Mills Factory. Cone Mills White Oak, to be exact. There’s quite a few different brands using that same denim now, as it is just that good. Tellason makes 7 different cut of jeans, with one for everybody, whether you like Slim Taper (the Gustave) or Straight Leg (the Ankara)
Our personal choice is the John Graham Mellor, a slim straight cut that is the perfect marriage between comfortable and form-fitting. They come in 12.5, 13.5, 14.5 and 16.5-ounce weights. The denim is raw and unlined, but sanforized, so they won’t shrink when they need to be washed. (But seriously, we recommend not washing them whenever possible – your jeans will look that much better, and be that much more comfortable). The inseams are graduated from 34.75” to 35.75”.
But all Tellason cuts are excellent. As mentioned, Tellason makes all their jeans right in San Francisco, and is dedicated to making the highest-quality denim possible right at home here in America. And since we’re fans of all things USA-made, we can get behind that. The rivets, zippers, thread – it’s all American-made. They’re dedicated to the craft of classic jeanmaking, and it shows. This a brand you can feel good about buying from, and their pants are built to last a long, long time.
