and Tellason is a great denim brand imo, they're fairly new and their runs are really low but they are really great quality jeans. Cone denim and manufactured in san fran so its great american stuff. Their attention to detail is ridiculous, they have canvas lined back pockets and the threading is really nice. Both the ladbroke grove and the john graham mellor are both a slim fit jean but i personally like the mellor better. These two jeans are a really good comparison i think and have a lot of things in common, like the tanner goods leather patch. but i think it comes down your preference, either american (domestic) denim, or japanese denim.
Ah! Your reply, while I greatly appreciate, doesn't help me make a decision at all! SO beautiful! I guess it boils down to those fades, as I haven't seen any outstanding Tellason examples yet. I like the Mellor's too but it's such a heavy denim! Really, thanks a lot for your reply as I greatly appreciate it.
PS- Thanks for the compliment on the username.
