    I picked these up on Ebay for $300, they look great with jeans, and my GF loves them, so I'm sold.If you like them, they seem to be around.

    Jodhpurs are seriously underappreciated. With a good polish they'll be looking even better.

    Ooh... nice. My only qualm is that the toes are a bit boxy for my tastes.

    Very nice.

    But are they really Zegna, or are they Coppleys made with Zegna leather?

    If nothing else, kudos to Mr. Execstyle for adding more schtick to the forum.

    Jason, what are commonly known as jodhpurs is this style of boot.

    Although I believe there is debate about the correct name and origin etc., it usually refers to these.

    I find it very easy to darken most shades of brown: treating with Obenauf's Leather Preservative with darken it a shade or two, then polish with black polish (don't try to polish cheap leather with black, or you could get streaking). Great boots, Soph!

    --- Thanks Thin, I should have the Vass U last Suede chukkas in days, I will post them up. I pretty much only wear ankle boots casually wth jeans and such. However, to day I'm wearing these with a grey/blue stripe Bor. suiting.

    Does Vass make a johhpur??? or Can they??

    Soph, in a thread that may have been pre-crash, there was good discussion about "what would you get if you could have one pair of bespoke shoes." I thought maybe a U last jodhpur with an extra wrap would be awesome. Don't see why they couldn't.

    I don't think they create custom designs though.
