Breeches or Jods?

Ok, so I've looked at both on the web. Have seen both in person, but havent taken that close of a look. Is there any difference between the two types?
Also, are they worth it? I usually just wear jeans, and never has it bothered me. I'm not so big on the tight, nearly up my rectum styling. But if they're as great as I keep hearing I might just get a pair.
Anyone wanna tell me anything and everything they can (or want) on breeches/jods?

Joddys have long legs to sit over the top of paddock boots. Breeches usually have velcro or elastic bottoms that finish just below the knee and are worn with top boots.

I like wearing either jods/breeches/jeans. There are no inside seams on breeches which is comfier in my dressage saddle. But I find jeans just as comfy, as long as it is stretch denim for jumping or trails.

Oh! Ok, so breeches have shorter legs then. I cant stand that, so I better go with Jods if I ever buy a pair. Thanks!
