Jodhpurs For Sale! (Horse Not Included)

According to Amanda Harlech, Kaiser Karl's muse "...coming up, I think it's jodhpurs and a tiny jacket, so dig out your tiny jacket and wear it with some breeches, and wrap a scarf round and you've got a look - and you can do it yourself now, before the things come into the shops."

And I would have to agree. Because jodhpurs found their way out of equestrian shops and into retail stores when Balenciaga's Nicolas Ghesquière decided it was about time for Fall 2007:

Demand for jodhpurs has been so phenomenal, Imogen Fox of The Guardian reports that Harvey Nichols and Selfridges both have waiting lists for jodhpurs that cost hundreds of pounds. At Harvey Nicks, every single one of the store's £645 Balenciaga trousers are reported to "go straight to the personal shopping department, bypassing the shop floor entirely!"

The good news is, The Gap and Diesel are said to have their own versions for those with budget constraints! Whoopee!

Hmmm, I can't help but think if this look was inspired by this photo? I tell you! Charlie's Angels were really on to something!

P.S. Keep your eye out on tennis whites (on the right) as well! Vogue's heavyweight September issue featured tennis outfits as worn by today's tennis greats!
