What about these:


I'm quite tempted by these grain Chelseas as a versatile casual option. It could likewise benefit from a more trim outsole, but that really doesn't trouble me much on a casual boot.

What about them?

I’m not a huge fan of jodhpurs. They always look great until I try them on. My pants leg keeps getting caught up in them and it just leaves an odd silhouette at my leg.

Good to know. Is the price difference with CS Chelseas justified?

Those Jodhpurs are okay - I don't love them, and can't really say much negative about them, either. Jodhpur is a style of boot that's really hard to get right, and unlike chukkas, derbies and even Chelseas, I've rarely come across a moderately priced pair of Jodhpurs that gets close enough to really right to inspire a purchase. I have two pairs of Jodhs - by G&G and Bonafe - and both are pretty terrific.

I'm not sure exactly what the price difference is between the L&T and CS and can't comment on justification as I have yet to handle a pair of L&T in person. I'v been very happy with all three of my pairs of CS. I've read reports that the material quality is a bit better with L&T and expect that will prove to be true. Hopefully I will be in a position to form my own opinion before long, but I'm waiting for the full array of Skoak boot offerings to hit the market this season.

Being a man of modest means, the Herring (Loake) George Jodhpur is on my autumn shopping list.

My size suddenly became available and I ordered a pair. Fingers crossed. I'm doing one for the group! The sole does not seem to support the arch as much as CS shoes.
As a minimalist I had difficulty justifying the purchase but then I realized Redwing boots cost $320 so...

I own, and am a fan of, Justin Fitzpatrick's Genesee jodhpur boot.

Just received them. They remind me quite a lot of the Beckett Simonon pair that I sent back: the glue smell, the protruding sole and the look of the leather. Not sure how much I like them.

Another similarity with B.S. is that the left one is tighter (near the ball of my foot) than the right, which is unusual.
