Fabulous Original Late 1940s 40s Vintage Bottle Green Elephant Ear Jodhpurs Riding Trousers
These fabulous riding trousers were made from a heavy bottle green twill in the late 1940s / early 1950s. They were cut in a classic jodhpurs style with a tightly fitted waist and huge elephant ear hips tapering to a slim fitting calf. Leather stirrup straps have been buttoned into the trouser cuffs and the jodhpurs fasten with five buttons on the wearer’s left hand side. Small functional waist pockets add a practical feature and soft suede patches have been sewn to the inside of the thighs and knees to extend the wear of the trousers and add a classic equestrian style detail. Inside, the seat of the trousers has been lined in cream cotton and there are no maker’s labels.
Rise: 12 1/2”
The jodhpurs are in very good condition with only a couple of tiny pinholes and some fraying to one of the belt loops as pictured. There is also overlooking to some of the seams, which is not uncommon on period sportswear and only present on the most likely to fray seams.
