I'm so confused with everyone's thoughts on this?
Breeches definitely do not stop just below the knee or mid calf =/ I'll admit I am a bit of a breeches hoarder, so own many different brands ...and absolutely none of them end just below the knee or mid calf, same goes for anyone I know that owns breeches (literally every english rider in my area, and we're a huge hunter/jumper area).
edit: just did a google search and all I can find is that breeches AND jods used to end just below the knee many many years ago, at least this is what it looks like from the very little bit of info google has. I am sure some are still made that way, but otherwise google turns up breeches/jods that all appear the same and end around the ankle area. If I do an ebay search for jods, regular long versions pop up, but also short knee length and wider ones pop up. If I do a ebay search for breeches all that comes up is slim fitting pants that all would end in the ankle area. So from the looks of it breeches and jods are both generally same length.
