And some of the photos you sent me back then showing the details and material:
Would love to have a Norfolk jacket in Irish Thornproof.
Was keepers tweed a catagorie made by various makers (or labels) of tweed, or was it separately labeled? In other words, might you see a Harris Tweed keepers tweed or a Donegal Tweed keepers tweed?H.Johnson said:With respect, this doesn't look like keepers tweed, which is a tough, closely woven fabric.

Marc Chevalier said:Don't know.
Having owned jackets with the vintage material shown above, I can say that it neither looks nor feels quite like Keeper's Tweed or Thornproof cloth. Whether it's called "twist" or "homespun", the stuff is VERY scratchy and sandpapery, crisp and dry to the touch, and porous (though only upon close inspection).
