The jodhpur is a wonderfully old-fashioned, traditional English boot. I'm not prepared to pay Edward Green prices for one (though I do own some Edward Green shoes), so I bought the Crockett & Jones "Cottesmore". Beautiful lines - slightly elongated, with a rounded toe.
The colour is quite superb - a rich 'aristocratic' chestnut brown, which is at least as good as Edward Green's chestnut, in my opinion. It's slightly darker, with a lovely rich colour.
I intended buying Crockett's chelsea boot, but it has an ugly squared off toe, which disrupts the lines of the boot. My eyes simply froze when I looked at it. It would be better on the 341 last. That said, and of course this is my own opinion, I believe that the jodphur is a more interesting style than the chelsea boot. It's less conspicious, eccentric, and fits wonderfully.
It depends really what you want - if you intend roughing it, R.M.Williams might be a better choice. Not as nice (leather, colour, etc not as good), but very robust and hardy boots all the same.
Sanders have some on offer - about the price of Loake. Due to the complexity of construction and the fact that more leather is used, I'd wouldn't drop down below Crockett's myself.
Horses for courses!
