My soulbrother Michael Uhlemann Master Chief of Cuisine M. send me some pics of his new Tellason aprons made of 14.75oz Cone Mills White Oak Denim. The apron is limited to 50 pieces and it was sadly for sure the last Cone Denim production – so something really special! The leather patch shows the “TEN” logo standing for the 10th anniversary of Tellason. “Michael is Tellason”, he is the biggest Tellason fan I know and so it is fantastic that they made an apron that he can use when cooking – maybe they did it especially for Michael 😉 who is already longer a very good friend to Tellason’s Pete & Tony and Distributor Uwe E. Maier c/o Amtraq Distribution, who love his way to cook so much and above all his personality and his loyalty to the brand … do you know anyone who has a “Tellason Wall Of Fame” at home? I know!

A few days days ago I visited UWE E. MAIER, owner and founder of AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION in Frankfurt, Germany. He showed me some news, presented in his wonderful showroom – I love to be there … it is like a men’s playground for dry goods. Among other beautiful and exciting stuff I found this wonderful TELLASON jacket coming up next Spring/Summer Season: the 14.75 OZ CHORE COAT. Chore coats, were emerged in the early 20th century, worn by the blue-collar classes of American farmers and factory workers. The guys from TELLASON did a new take on the good old work jacket made of Cone Mills White Oak red line raw selvedge denim. Featuring 2 big lower patched pockets, 1 chest pocket with flap and button and one chest pocket with pen slot. Check the so nice selvedge detail at center seam inside the jacket and nice rounded collar. Like this off white single needle top stitching. Aren’t the original copper patent buttons awesome? So much great details. This new classic will be in the stores from January 2017 onwards. pics | LTG
Damn, aren’t these nice? This week Uwe E. Mair c/o AMTRAQ DISTRIBUTION gave me the new SINGLE POCKET LONG SLEEVE SHIRT by TELLASON in two different versions. The shirt is based on a dress shirt from the 1950s which TONY PATELLA, founder and co-owner of TELLASAON, got in his vintage collection. I love this authentic old-school look, with that big, masculine collar, one front pocket and the “heavy duty” finish. The dark navy one is made of an unwashed 7.5oz twill from japan. Take a look at the Corozo (ivory nut) buttons – so nice. The stripped shirt is made of a Cone Mills White Oak vintage reproduction 100% cotton fabric. Its look is smarter and the wear is it too … not so heavy duty. The fabric has a softer touch – very comfortable and a great look with its stripes. Same cut, but tow different wonderful shirts – both Made in San Francisco, California. For your last xmas buys check the TELLASON site. In Switzerland call or write to VMC and in Germany B74, Riders Room, Jeanslife, Denim&Iron, Bube&König, John Tweed and great Gentlemen’s Skateshop.
