I have been on the lookout for a pair of tall brown Field boots for years and only recently I found the exact right pair of boots at the lovely little specialist shop for hunting clothes and accessories: the Vintage Tack Room.
Brown Field Riding Boots; Heavy-weight cavalry-twill riding breeches; and a British Warm: dressed for Bike Polo
The boots are old, but well-kept. The leather is soft and has beautiful hues of browns and burgundy. Toe and heel are protected by metal caps.

The paintings by Sir Alfred Munnings are always a great source of sartorial inspiration, and the portrait of Major Sir Eric Bonham mounted on his beloved Grey Lady is no exception. Notice how dashing the Major looks in his uniform with field boots.
