"Doctor Who swaps Harris Tweed for Chinese rip-off as BBC sell replicas for £360" http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbiz...6908-23148531/

FURIOUS Harris Tweed makers have hit out after BBC bosses ditched Doctor Who's trademark jacket for a Chinese fake. Matt Smith had worn a 1960s vintage jacket made from the traditional Hebridean hand-woven material. But when the 11th Time Lord's latest series began, makers were disappointed to see he had ditched the luxury pure wool. Their upset turned to anger when a Sunday Mail probe discovered the Beeb had dressed him in a Chinese rip-off that is 20 per cent acrylic. And they have struck a deal to sell the "officially licensed replica blazer" for £360.
Now this is just wrong. WTF where the BBC thinking?

You should know the daily record is full of crap.

The one they use in the show is still UK made tweed tailored on Savile Row. I think you can still get the fabric at W. Bill. The one they're selling the legions of fanboys, however, is made in china.
