1840s British Boots at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Top boots ended just below the knee. They are so called because the top was turned down to reveal a softer or lighter coloured leather, allowing greater mobility when riding and walking. They had leather or string loops on the inside to help with pulling them on. Top boots came into fashion during the 18th century."
1727-1759 Field coat belonging to General James Wolfe at the Royal Collection, UK - I'm more repinning this as an artifact from Canadian history than anything else.
