Glencheck; Prince de Galle - see glencheck

pattern commonly used with a wool fabric, which has large checks in two or more colours, created by colour warping and throwing on a background of fine design. Typically in twill weave from worsted or carded yarns. Used for men's suits and jackets, and ladies' suits and coats in elegant, sporty design. The name is taken from the Scottish Gaelic "glen" ("family"} and the English "check", the pattern by the clothing of the families distinguishes them from one another. The name of this pattern varies from country to country - in France, for example, it is known as "prince de Galle", in Austria as "Esterhazy".
