NEW Tellason Fits

My love for these fellas has been well documented. Really dig this company and everything it stands for. Until recently Tellason has only had 2 fits. The original and spectacular straight-leg John Graham Mellor (aka Joe Strummer of The Clash), and the equally amazing and more loose fit in collaboration with Michael Williams of ACL. However recently Tellason has unveiled two more new fits to round out the denim line.

Introducing the Ankara which according to Tony "is a true straight leg that is ~ 1.5" higher in the front and back rise and ~ 1.5" fuller through the leg than the Mellor." This fit is based on the ACL jeans however these are slightly longer. Fun fact: Ankara is the city in Turkey where Joe Strummer was born (his dad was a
British diplomat).

And the Ladbroke Grove which, again according to Tony, "is the same as the Mellor from the waist to the knee and then tapers to a bottom opening that is 2" smaller." Another fun fact: Ladbroke Grove is the area of London where The Clash came from.

All of the jeans are $198, and as of right now, the new fits are made with 12.5oz. Cone Mills denim.
