These new “Breaker of Legs” uses cotton woven from 100% Australian family grown cotton.
Famous for their immense quality, this denim is extremely durable and long lasting with the promise of truly awesome fades.
We have been using the rope dyeing technique which is believed to be the greatest dyeing method for yarns.
These components combined makes for a very rigid and robust denim with a uneven/slub texture.

SOSO’s Heavyweight Champions – “The Breaker of Legs” weighs in at 33.14 oz, or 939g, is woven on vintage GA1515 shuttle looms, one of the first generation shuttle looms ever produced for the denim industry. These shuttle looms needed to be manually adjusted to handle the weight and rigidness, while generally you can just turn the machines on. Also in this special case, the weaver needs to overlook the meticulous process from beginning to the end. It takes approximately 2 whole days for our tailors to produce ONE pair of 33.14 oz jeans!

These Heavyweight Champions will be available in three different denims.

SOSO Indigo x White Weft Classic Redline Selvedge 33 oz
SOSO Indigo x Indigo Weft Classic Redline Selvedge 33 oz
SOSO Black x Black SOSO Signature Thick Red Selvedge 33 oz

    It has been six years since we started this journey into the world of custom-made selvedge denim. What a journey it’s been. Over the years, we've worked hard to respond to the feedback we’ve received from first-time and returning customers. We’ve been learning on our feet, trying to create better fits, find the best denims, and trying to provide a world-beating product at an unbeatable price. At the centre of this process are our fits. Even the smallest change to the silhouette can make or break the experience for the customer, so we’re continually working to refine our fits and make sure that there is consistency from one size to the next and from one style to the next. We can now say that we have done what we set out to do. You can now move between fits with complete confidence. If, for instance, you are a 32 in a Skinny Luke, you can confidently purchase any of our other fits in the same size. There might be more taper or more room in the seat or the thigh, but it’ll still fit right in all the right places. No more guesswork. With our revised fits (described below), you can now pick and choose from our range of contemporary and classic cuts. Whichever fit you choose, it’ll be a perfect fit.

    All revised fits are currently available from 2020-10-23

    Johan, Jannis & Fredrik
    We’ve built our brand around the idea of family, and we’ve approached our fits in the same way.
    The SOSO fit family consists of eight men, each with his own particular story and style.
    We’ve given each of them a little back story, and we hope this will help you pick a fit that aligns perfectly with your style.


    Luke is the youngest brother in the family. He’s on the cusp of adulthood, but he’s still a kid at heart. He’s thin through the hips and thighs, but he’s getting stronger with each passing year. 

    His style has never been rigid. His look changes slightly with each year, adapting to the latest fashions, but he never throws his old clothes away. He simply wears them a little differently, pairing them with new trendy pieces. 

    The Skinny Luke is perfect for those who are looking for a thoroughly modern fit complete with high waists and tight fits. Because the fit is designed to hug the thighs and calves, tapering right to the ankle, it’s best for those who are on the slender side. If comfort is important to you, stick to the lighter weights. The Skinny Luke looks its best in our 10.5 oz. stretch. 

    If you’ve found that your jeans tend to gap in your lumbar region, the Skinny Luke will suit you right down to the ground. The waist is tilted slightly, rising a little higher in the back than in the front. This ensures that, whether you’re sitting or standing, your waist will sit right where it should.

    Skinny Luke is similar to: Lee Malone, Wrangler Bryson, Levi’s 510, Nudie Skinnyl Lin, Edwin ED85

    Darryl is the most popular member of the family. He seems to fit in no matter where he is, moving effortlessly between professional and social settings without ever seeming out of place. He’s been working as a graphic designer in the big city, but he’s always got time for family. He’s only a phone call away—and he always answers the call. 

    His style tends more towards comfort than his younger brother Skinny Luke. He’s not on the cutting edge of fashion, but he knows that his look is never out of style. He’s comfortable without being too loose, casual without being sloppy. He’s versatile and always at home in his clothes. 

    The Slim Darryl has a medium rise—not too light, and not too high. There’s a little more room through the hips, but it’s still slim in the top block. The thigh fits snugly, but the taper is subtler, leaving a little more room through the calf.

    Slim Darryl is similar to: Lee Luke, Lee Rider Slim, Wrangler Larston Medium, Levi’s 511, Nudie Lean Dean, Nudie Grim Tim, Ironheart 555, Edwin ED80

    Jeremy is the oldest brother in the family. He might not be as popular as Darryl, but he’s always the life of the party when the family gets together. Jeremy might not ride his skateboard as much as he used to, but he can still hold his own on the half pipe. He’s got a family now, and his lifestyle is more sedate than it used to be, but he still knows how to cut loose. 

    Jeremy is a software developer, and the dress code at the office allows him perfect freedom to choose a style that works for him. He still loves his hoodies and sneakers, but he’s also perfectly comfortable in wool cardigans and even the occasional blazer. He used to wear his jeans slung low on his waist, but now he prefers a medium rise that sits comfortably right where it should. 

    The Tapered Jeremy works well with heavier denims than with lighter ones, but, thanks to its generous taper, it can be difficult to get in and out of in superheavyweights. It’s the perfect fit if you want plenty of room through the thigh and top block but a more fashionable cut below the knees. Pairs very well with slip-ons or sneakers. An excellent choice if you want to wear the same pair day in and day out. 

    Tapered Jeremy is similar to: Lee Austin, Lee 101, Lee Darin, Wrangler Texas Tapered, Levi’s 512, Ironheart 888, Edwin ED55

    Clark is the rowdy cousin. He’s the athlete in the family. He never turned pro, but he was a stand-out star on the varsity team. He still plays hockey in the winter and soccer in the summer, and he’s got legs like tree trunks. The kids take turns trying to knock him off his feet, but he’s rooted to the ground. 

    Because of his ample thighs, Clark has always had to settle for baggy, shapeless clothes. Recently, though, he’s found the perfect fit—a pair that gives him the freedom to move without hiding his athletic figure. His jeans are practically his uniform. He’s got four pairs (heavy for the colder months and lighter for the warmer ones). Now that he’s found the perfect fit, he never wears anything else.  

    The Loose Clark has a shaped yoke that provides an almost-tailored fit for larger men with power in their legs. The thigh is wide enough to fit bodybuilders who never skip legs day, and there’s a pronounced taper towards the ankle. Perfect for the man who has all but given up on finding the perfect-fitting pair.

    The Classic Selvedge Fit is the father of our family. He cares deeply about history and legacy. The walls of his study are lined with old family photographs, and, when the whiskey has been flowing, he’ll tell stories for hours—stories about the old world and the new. He knows how to spin a great yarn. 

    The father of the family has always been a stylish man. Many of his favourite pieces (his well-worn flannel and his tattered Storm Rider) have been with him for decades, but, like him, they’re classics that never go out of style. He may be going grey, but he’s a true-blue classic—the glue that holds the family fast. 

    The Classic Selvedge Fit is built to last, so this is the fit we recommend if you’re considering any of our denims north of 18 oz. With a high waist, a generous thigh, and a slight taper with a levelled foot opening, the fit is the best way to make heavy selvedge comfortable for most body types. Pair it with a mid-weight Type III denim jacket and a pair of boots and you’ll be ready for anything. For a more youthful look, try it with a plain tee and a pair of white sneakers.

    Uncle Billy has always been something of an outlier. When everybody else was wearing polyester and silk, Billy wore cowboy boots and denim shirts. His 1,000-yard gaze and perpetual stubble have always made him a hit with the ladies, and he’s shacked up with a few of them here or there, but nobody seems to be able to tie him down permanently. He goes his own way—always has, always will. 

    Nobody can remember ever seeing Billy wearing anything other than boots. He showed up at Jeremy’s wedding in jeans and boots with a case of beer under one arm and an airline stewardess under the other. He’s comfortable in his own skin, and it shows. 

    The Billy Bootcut has a medium rise and a tilted waist. They’re comfortable through the thigh, slim through the knee, and they flare slightly. They work best with high slip-on boots. If you frequently wear motorcycle boots, cowboy boots, or engineer boots, you should have at least one Billy Bootcut in the rotation.

    Billy Bootcut is similar to: Levi’s 527, Ironheart 463S

    Sten is the artist of the family. The middle child, he has always felt the need to be a little different. He plays the accordion, writes short stories, and there’s not a wall in the house that doesn’t have one of his paintings on it somewhere. The bond between Sten and Darryl is one of the tightest in the family. The two are almost inseparable. 

    Sten’s fashion tastes are constantly changing. He’s on the slim side, but he’s a little shy about his skinny thighs. He wears his jeans a little higher on the waist than his brother Darryl, frequently pairing his denim with a tucked in oxford and, when he’s feeling particularly dandyish, with a waistcoat.

    The Straight Sten has a comfortable but narrow fit that works very well with tailored button down shirts. An essential pair if you want to dress your denim up and down.

    Ralph is the uncle who dresses up as Santa Claus every year at Christmas. He is a fixture at the family table, and his belly laughs bring a smile to everybody’s face. He’s the biggest member of the family, but he carries himself well. He’s as strong as Paul Bunyan, and his hugs are legendary. He’s got a heart as big as Texas. 

    For Ralph, easy breezy comfort is key. He’s the oldest of the three brothers, and he drives a train for a living. His clothes suit the role. He gravitates to vintage workwear styles, and he always wipes his brow with a bandana he keeps tucked in his back pocket. 

    The Relaxed Ralph is perfect for larger men or for those who are drawn to more vintage workwear styles. It pairs perfectly with a Type II denim jacket, and it looks best with a bold rolled cuff over a pair of black engineer boots. 

    Ralph is casual and airy.
    Ralph has a higher, tilted waist. He has a loose thigh width, slightly tapered towards the foot opening.

    Sally is a classic that is heard by name. This fit has been inspired by the early 50’s and check out the iconic pants Levis 501.
    If you do not want to wear your jeans tight, this is the perfect classic fit. She builds on a normal waist that lies slightly on the hip.
    Curved over the hip and has a regular silhouette over the thighs.

    Unlike her little sister, it has a wider thigh width and a straight fit from knee to foot. It’s perfect to go up one size for the looser boyfriend feeling. Not too loose not too tight completely perfect for the average woman.

    Sally’s waist is normal high with curved hips and airy thighs.
    The knees are straight providing that perfect fall.

    Regular Straight Sally is similar to: Wrangler Wild West, Nudie Straight Sally, Levi´s 501 Lady

    Had the breakers for 200 wear days and enjoyed it every day, what a fun piece!
    Stiff only in the beginning, always heavy, more breathable as it seems…dare you!!!
    (Don’t forget to size up one or more)

    I have been wearing these jeans everyday for over a month now and I have gotten so much joy out of them. They are soft and heavy and absolutely perfect for the winter months. Break in is a bit of a challenge but that just comes with the territory with heavyweight denim, especially the heaviest denim in the world.
    Everyone in the office thinks I’m a lunatic for wearing them, which is fine by me since I really am crazy about denim. 🙂
    It doesnt help that I brag about them to anyone that will listen and have them feel my pants.

    They are not as uncomfortable as you might imagine, IF you get the right sizing. Give yourself plenty of room in the knees and in the crotch area. I recommend getting them in the relaxed ralph or in a custom cut similar to the relaxed tapered fit from unbranded denim (if you like a bit of taper). I would also caution against getting a button fly with this material. You WILL NOT be able to button it, I promise you.

    Jannis (one of the cofounders) walked me through my entire purchase and was incredibly patient and helpful as I tried to make up my mind with a bunch of inane questions about sizing and store policy.

    Looking forward to buying some 41oz jeans from SOSO someday after they one-up N&F’s upcoming 40ozs! 😉
