This time of the year is always pretty dry in terms of breaking news but we stumbled across this lookbook from the Revolver shop out in San Francisco. It highlights some of the goods in their Fall 2011 collection, shedding light on a solid lineup of brands, most of them being very new to the industry. Included in the mix are Metsa, Yuketen, Baron Wells, Makr, Tellason and a few others. (via the189)
Tanner Goods collaborates with San Francisco-based denim label Tellason for this Roll Tote bag. It’s extremely portable and features high quality fabrics and craftsmanship throughout. It’s available in three editions, each with particular leather and denim detailings. A few of the fabric options to choose from are 12.5oz denim, 10.5oz deadstock duck canvas from Graniteville Mills, and a heavier 19oz black waxed canvas. The attached should straps allow the bag to be rolled up and tucked away, adding some functionality to a great looking piece. (via hb)
Here’s a short video highlighting San Francisco’s Tellason, one of the country’s most promising denim labels. Founders Tony Patella and Pete Searson talk openly about the brand’s history and its current state while also giving us a mini-tour of San Fran as they visit some of the local stockists.
Open now in SoHo is The Pop Up Flea‘s third coming and this time, it’s bigger than ever. The list of brands on hand this year is tremendous with some of our favorite labels showing up for this once-a-year showing. Atop the list of notables is Michael Williams‘ own ACL & Co., which teamed up with San Francisco-based Tellason for a special pair of denims that debuted last night at the opening of The Pop Up Flea. Mark McNairy also showed up with some of his finest shoes, including his collaborations with Engineered Garments and Bass Weejuns. For the first time ever, L.L.Bean’s Signature collection was shown outside the label’s Freeport, Maine shop.
We could honestly go on and on about all the happenings at The Pop Up Flea but you’ll have to just go in there and experience it for yourself before it shuts down on Sunday. Saturday the 20th, it’s open from 11am to 7pm and Sunday the 21st, it’s open from 11am to 6pm.

Raw denims are a dime-a-dozen these days it seems, but we love the Tellason‘s dedication to detail and the American labor force as well. The raw selvage denim comes from Cone Mills’ White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina while Tanner Goods of Portland prove the leather labels. Final construction is handled in San Francisco, where the company is also based. Note: We actually covered the label back in November when Belfast’s The Bureau took stock of their jeans. See what we thought of them here.
Tellason’s John Graham Mellor denims really set the tone for what we can expect from the California-based label moving forward. This is a limited run of only 200 pairs, with the first batch selling out pretty quickly.

From San Francisco-based denim company Tellason comes their premium selvage 5 pocket jeans. They use selvage denim from the famous Cone Mills White Oak plant in Greensboro, North Carolina, which is then cut and sewn at the independent jean company’s San Fran location. The leather patch is made by Portland’s Tanner Goods. They’re a standard straight leg with a slim cut and blessed with some fine details like the leather patch from Tanner Goods. Also, there are only 240 pairs available, with each being individually numbered by hand.
