You may be wondering how jodhpurs differ from riding breeches. Well, whilst breeches tend to finish at the calf, jodhpurs are longer in the leg and finish at the ankle. Jodhpurs are designed to be worn with ankle boots, jodhpur boots and paddock boots whereas breeches are best worn with long boots. Jodhpur boots are classic riding boots that you won’t want to be without. Ankle height and with ankle straps and low heels, these boots are functional, comfortable and fashionable. Classic jodhpur boots feature two parts, the vamp and the quarter, which are made from a single piece of leather. The boots are fastened with a strap which wraps around the ankle. There’s a loop at the back of the boot through which the straps are passed. These days, new styles feature straps which do not wrap entirely around the ankle but which offer the look and practical qualities of the original designs.
The Origins of Jodhpurs
You might also have thought about where jodhpurs may have originated. The style was actually first worn in India but was a riding pant which was tight at the calves but which flared at the hips. Then, in 1897, Pratap Singh who was the son of the Maharaja of Jodhpur, visited England with his polo team. They were sporting riding pants which were said to have been designed by Singh himself. The pants made a big impression and were quickly adopted in this country. At first they were only worn by men as women were not yet wearing trousers and were still riding side saddle.
Before the invention of the Jodhpurs, tall boots that extended to just below the knee were worn with riding breeches. But the revolutionary design of jodhpurs meant that tall riding boots were no longer required. This was because the new style of breeches protected the inner calf from rubbing. Jodhpur boots for men and jodhpur boots for women were and are a major boon as they are so easy to put on and take off.
Jodhpurs for Women
In the 1920’s women had become somewhat more liberated and began to wear jodhpurs. Their flattering shape soon saw the pants arrive on the catwalks and one of the earliest adopters of the style as a fashion statement was Coco Chanel. Jodhpurs remain both the practical and stylish choice for riding but today’s designs benefit from the latest technical fabrics too.
