*Neuwertig – Vintage HAWKINS (Royal Warrant) Jodhpur Boot:42.5D
Classic Jodhpur Boot
A light weight classic Jodhpur in full-grain calfskin, English made by a traditional jobber firm holding Royal Warrants. This has an all-weather composition sole and low-profile heel armoured with hand-set horse-shoe nailing, a straight forward boot, suitable for horseback or city street. It will show as beautifully with a tailored suit as with jeans.
Size: Marked 9E UK…..correct for a US 9.5D…….Continental 42.5D, for the medium width foot. I recommend a slightly generous fit for all boots, allowing for the wearing of a heavier sock, in Winter for warmth and in Summer for ventilation.
Condition: Near new; may only have been worn once.
Royal Warrants: Currently only 850 persons and companies hold warrants to the British Royal Family. The Royal Warrant signifies there is a satisfactory trade relation in place between the grantor, the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales, and the company. Some Royal Warrants have been held for more than a hundred years. The granting of a Royal Warrant is an important endorsement of the grantee and indicates their products or services to be of high quality and the grantee is permitted to display the coat of royal arms of the grantor in his product, as seen here in the liner of the shoe. Most Warrant holders are members of the Royal Warrant Holders Association. Richard Peck, is a former submarine commander, is its current secretary.
