You can probably get the C&J or Alfred Sargent badged versions from pediwear. I'm not sure which company makes the boots for Brooks. If it's alfred sargent, you can probably get it for about 40% the BB cost.http://www.pediwear.co.uk/detail.php?stock_ID=62
Although the leather used in the BB collection might be better.
I actually had a pair of suede jodhpurs at one point, but didn't have the guts to wear it, and sold it off on ebay (I think another forum member bought it). I kind of regret selling it.... But I already have two brown jodhpurs (One grenson, one shell cordovan polo with a back strap, not a wrap-around strap) and a third boot in suede would have been a once or twice a year shoe. Better somebody else got it and used it more than me.
