Tellason x Simple Threads Giveaway

I’ve been extremely stoked on the new 14.75oz red-line Tellason’s that are just now surfacing. What makes these unique is the fact they are constructed from an exclusive denim made just for Tellason by Cone Mills of NC. A beautiful fabric with an amazing indigo-y hue in a nice weight fabric that will definitely fade amazingly. Made in America goodness, all the way down to the buttons, rivets, and the patch made from my friends over at Tanner Goods.  There’s really not much I can say about these jeans that I haven’t already said, I just wanted to give someone a chance to own a pair of the new denim – in whatever fit, and in whatever size they want. Good luck!

The fits:

John Graham Mellor: The signature fit. Mid-rise. Slim-straight leg with a tapered opening.

Ladbroke Grove: The new mid-rise slim fitting model. Tapered opening.

Ankara Straight: A straight fit jean with more room in the thighs & the seat. Modeled after the collaboration between ACL & Tellason.

Q&A with Tony himself:

Q: The majority of your denim is sourced through Cone Mills – was it important to use a domestically produced denim for Tellason? Or was there more to it?

A: Yes and yes.  We really respect what Japanese mills create when it comes to denim fabric, there’s certainly no denying the beauty of their fabrics and the passion they put into it.  That said, it is our opinion that using US-made fabric is the right thing to do.  Not only does Cone White Oak fabric age well, it also performs really well with regard to shrinkage and stretching due to their superior sanforization (many thanks to the house of Strauss for that), but if we love the idea of the White Oak mill and it’s history, it is our duty to support it and help keep the jobs in Greensboro, NC.  Additionally, shipping fabric from Japan, either via boat or plane is very expensive and our jeans would certainly retail for significantly more if we used imported fabric.

Q: So what’s next? Anything new on the horizon?

A: Yes. As we speak, we have a denim shirt, weekender bag with Tanner Goods, and a collaboration with Smith+Butler in the works.  Our core will always be our three fits in our two fabrics, but it is fun and interesting to do these other projects.  Another, potentially very interesting project is in the beginning stages now and hopefully it will come to be every thing we hope it to be.

Q: Tellason jeans are cut & sewn right in San Francisco – where you & Pete both live – Was it important for you guys to be able to have this much visibility of your manufacturing?

A: Absolutely. We’re in the factory almost every day and have the ability to monitor every aspect of the process. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  3. Thanks for doing this!
    I really hope Tellason will be available in Toronto soon. As far as I know, nobody carries it.
    I’m glad I was able to pick up a pair when I was in San Francisco last August. Worth every penny.

    I’ve really been considering buying a pair to go with my APC NS. When the jeans I like cost as much as they do I can only buy once a year maybe. I’ll just have to buy a new tannergoods belt to go with my new Tellasons.

    Tellason was actually the brand I was going to make my first real raw denim purchase. It’s just a beautifully made piece of clothing and I was going to buy it.
    And then a cop gave me a speeding ticket for going 3 over. Anyway, maybe I can get lucky!
