The straps on my John Lobb jodhpurs need to be undone and re-done each time I take them on/off. I think this is true of almost every maker's jodhpur boots. Chelsea boots are much more convenient.
And if I were you, I'd go for a bal boot to fill that dressy boot need. Dainite sole and you're good to go.
When I say "dressy" boot, I still mean business casual and I prefer something easier to take on and off than a high boot like the typical bal boots I see here and from EG. I'm looking for "dressy" chukkas to alternate with my C&J Tetburys (something a little more sleek than RL MacCallums). Ideally, I'd like a pair of chukkas with Dainite soles and made from ruby shell cordovan, but not many folks here seem interested and I like the hatch-grain leather. I'll eventually order something in ruby shell, but I can be patient...
