JODHPURI PANTS: the royal riding breeches

 

 

Getting sick of your run-of-the-mill outfits? Admittedly, style options for men are fairly limited. However, the Indian sub-continent has a rich sartorial heritage often ignored. Sure, you don the occasional Kurta. But that’s where your ethnic inspiration comes to an end.

 

 

Enter the Jodhpuri Pants; Introduced by Maharaja Sir Pratap Singh of Jodhpur, these decidedly regal riding pants have been the go to choice of Polo players for over a century. More recently, renowned Indian designers like Rohit Bal and Manish Molhotra brought these “royal riding pants” to the runways.
