These days, there's a lot of denim to choose from. In fact, there's probably more high quality denim around than ever. How does a pair stand out? For us, it's a simple recipe. First we looked to our friends at Tellason, Tony and Pete to guide the project. Then, we began with superior materials, in this case 15.5 oz denim made especially for this run of jeans by Kuroki Mills in Okayama, Japan. Then, we added the kind of details that elevate something to a more considered product. These include half lined back pockets to ensure durability; copper rivets and a copper donut button fly; two-toned chain stitched hems (one thread color yellow, the other an indigo dyed cotton thread); fully lined selvage coin pocket; and like all Tellason jeans, fully lined front pockets. The rear pockets feature the same tonal indigo dyed cotton thread as the hems, only here they are single needle stitched into the back pocket to form a simple "T" shape. Subtle yet striking.
Next was our special contribution: The patch is hand constructed from natural un-dyed leather by the fine folks at Tanner Goods. The leather has been hand oiled prior to being sewn onto the jean, in order to ensure a long and richly aged life. We've also only sewn the top and bottom of the patch, to allow a belt to slide through easily. Frankly, we love this patch.
Like all jeans, over time these will evolve. Unlike other jeans, these have subtle yet striking differences. Beyond the rich natural hand-dyed indigo of the Kuroki denim, the indigo thread, the contrast thread and the hand oiled patch will change over time, displaying characteristics unique to the owner and the pattern of use and care. We feel that this level of attention to detail is what sets Tony and Pete's product above and beyond others in the market. Paired with the fair price and the fact that they are assembled 100% in the USA in San Francisco, we're justifiably excited to offer these jeans for sale.
The fit is modern straight leg cut, neither too slim nor too loose, designed to look excellent on a wide range of body types and builds. All Tellason Jeans come in a 34 inch inseam. The denim is Sanforized but you should still expect 1-3% of shrinkage after the first wash.
This run of denim is limited to 24 pairs at the Woodlands Supply Co. Each pair has been hand numbered 1-24 by Tony.
