Jodhpurs in their original shape

Originally jodhpurs were tailored to be flared around the hip and snug-fitting just below the knee. Today, modern stretchy fabric means that the flare can be removed without compromising the flexibilty and support of the riding pants.

Four years ago jodhpurs were part of the autumn/winter 2008/2009 collection from Nicolas Ghesquière for  Balenciaga. The former designer from Hérmes, JeanPaul Gaultier, copied the idea from Ghesquière and tailored a dream in leather.

It is best to wear these pants with riding boots or with authentic Jodhpur  Boots. It is also possible to combine them with Chelsea Boots.  If you would like to look taller, wear one colour from head to toe.

Absolutely no-go: Jodhpurs should never be worn in combination with high heels. Whoever does this commits a serious style “faux-pas”.
