Crockett & Jones Cottesmore – A Suede Jodhpur Setting the Bar!

Crockett & Jones Cottesmore - A Suede Jodhpur Setting the Bar!

I have never believed that a boot needed to be worn only through the months of Autumn/Winter although this is how they are always marketed and sold. I can understand this if you live in a tropical climate for 100% of the year but for the rest of us city folk who even if we live in a hot place (like NYC in the Summer) often times spend a lot of our time in an A/C controlled environment where any article of clothing can be worn. Now, this train of thought might also depend on the model of boot too, as wearing a hiking style of boot in Summer might be on the silly side of things but a sleek, suede jodhpur in my humble opinion spans the year in its ability to be worn. The Cottesmore, by , defines this train of thought.

Being one of their latest offerings last A/W, I was immediately intrigued by this model, not only for its sleek pattern but also because I love the jodhpur model more so in suede than in any other type of leather/material. I don’t know why but in my brain, I associate the jodhpur with a riding boot, something you wear when going out on your Vespa/scooter, motorcycle, bicycle, whatever form of transportation you have, not being a car. I think that association was instilled by my good friend who always wore and rode his scooter all over Paris. And naturally, he always had a pair of jeans and a Barbour field jacket that accompanied this look, of which apparently stuck in my head as the look that goes with . Being that suede is more casual than leather and for me pairs better with denim, I see the Cottesmore boot as the ultimate jodhpur offering.

I also liked the little detail of the higher cut of the front part of the shaft, while the back was cut slightly lower. The longer extension makes it a touch more elegant as well. This detail, of course, will go unnoticed underneath a pair of trousers but is a nice touch nonetheless. And the thin city rubber sole, makes it appear as a more dressy option but allows you to wear it hard with that tough rubber bottom giving you the best of both worlds of style and practicality. C&J didn’t miss a trick when designing this one!

If this is your first time see the Cottesmore, don’t overlook it just because Winter is halfway over. A good suede boot can be worn through July, giving it only a break in August 🙂

Happy Shopping!
