I have a chance of purchasing a pair of a John Lobb Jodhpur boots like these in a Plum Museum Calf:

But, I am just not sure how people react on these boots, as I never owned a Jodhpur before.

Are they considered to be a classic boots, or should I wait for let's say CHAMBORD II boot instead?

I plan wearing the both boots with some cashmere jacket, sweater and a trousers, more of a casual look  ...

I own boots similar to both (surprise, suprise). The former, Jodhpur, is traditionally a riding boot so it looks a bit unique in city wear whereas the latter (I own the Chambord II) has a more classic look.

Both boots would look fine with sportswear although equestrians might ask where you stable your horses with the jodhpur. My wife used to compete in dressage and she always asks me where I hide the horses when I'm wearing my jodhpurs.

@DpprDr HeHe, that was one of mine concerns, but wanted to consult the SF ..

I really do care about the women opinions among everything else, after all, major part of my dressing and shoe selection is done "with a women opinions in mind" and I wouldn't like to look on moments like I just came from my ranch to the downtown to finish some business and forgot to change my shoes .. :P

Thanks for the input, I think I will just wait for something more classic like Chambord II Boot.

I would suggest trying on the Chambord II before buying it. I found the ankle area to be exceptionally wide - indeed, for me, too wide.

Thank you for letting me know!

Personally...I prefer the Jodphur...more sleek than the chambord II

I am contemplating a JL William II Boot MTO, possibly in a navy blue. Does anyone know if the navy option is available in JL Buffalo leather? Thanks.

Send an email to the JL Jermyn store in London, there is a guy David working there, he knows everything you wanna know.

Those are gonna be some nice and pricey boots, especially since they raised up their prices recently ..

I wanted my self to make a MTO order, however, I didn't have the leather catalogue available, and any JL Boutique is too far from me .. So I ended up buying their "season" leathers ..

Anyone know what by request runs into these days?

I'm in the UK

Thanks!

You are looking at a 150-200 GBP surcharge and a waiting period of at least 4 months. Considering that you opt for a regular calf leather, and not some exotic.

Many thanks. Got my eyes on a few MTOs.... worth the wait I'd say....

This may be a novice question but are all shoes/boots under the name William the same last? The website doesn't clarify. I'm going to visit the London store and i plan on trying on the 7,000 , 2511 and William lasts.
