Acc to Villarosa's The Elegant Man:
Quote:
Its name derives from the heirs to the English throne who, from the days of Edward VII, often wore garments made of this fabric.
Weave: twill weave. A milled cloth obtained from carded yarns.
Weight: 13-16 ounces
Uses: jackets, suits and pants.
Characteristics: Saxony, so-callled because it was originally woven with wools from Saxony, should be soft to the touch, with very little nap. It is onrmally in a glen check design. Garments made of this material, and those made of flannel, pose problems because htey must rest and thus cannot be worn over long periods of time.

Simplifying it'is a (carded) flannel-like cloth with 2x2 twill instead 2x1 twill.
