Fratelli Rossetti captures the both the form and the mystique of the classic Jodhpur in this handsome double strap model in a warm golden tan calfskin. Jodhpurs of this type, with their plain, undecorated front, show discreetly under trousers, appearing to be shoes, until the wearer sits and crosses his legs, revealing the true nature of his footwear.
With its fine quality leather and equally fine full glove leather liningm this boot promises comfort as well as elegance. This is in every way a “dress” boot, suitable for a wide variety of dress, town or country, tweeds, corduroys, khakis or jeans. The limit is only your imagination.
Both the Jodhpur Boot (named for the Maharaja of Jodhpur) and the Chukka Boot derive from the 19th century British presence in India, and the discovery of the game of Polo in the 1850s by British tea planters on the Burmese border with India. The Jodhpur boot was readily adapted by the British at home for it handsome appearance and practical use on or off horseback. It quickly became a staple of the Gentleman’s wardrobe and has never since gone out of style.
