Tracing roots in Jodhpur In the 19th centuryJodhpuris were popular among the upper class gentry as riding pants. Down the years they have attained modern connotations but continue to exude an air of elegance. "Jodhpuris look good on tall men. These can be paired with anything on the top, just ensure the length of your shirt or bandhgala reaches the crotch," says Rathore.
Add a modern twist Since the pants are flared around the thighs, you can wear a tailored jacket to balance the look. Instead of regular jutis opt for formal shoes if you are heading to a cocktail party.
