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.
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.
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.
