Unlike Harris tweed, Donegal tweed refers to a style, and not the origin. Here is a"Donegal" by Pendleton, my favorite jacket:

And here is the real thing, Donegal from Ireland by Magee:

Of all the tweeds, Donegal is the "tweediest".

Says who? It refers to the origin.


There are no legal restrictions on the use of the term "Donegal Tweed", so anyone anywhere can use it to describe their product. Much of the Donegal tweed sold today comes from China. Of course, it also is used for tweed actually from Donnegal. I would prefer if they used the term "Donegal Style" for those not made in Donegal. Regardless of the origin, it is my favorite tweed.

This is my first Harris Tweed jacket. In fact it’s my first vintage jacket. It’s a beautiful green colour with double back vents. If I’m not mistaken the label dates the jacket or at least the fabric as been made in the 40’s.
