Judith, I hesitate to jump into this nest of vipers, but twill weave has
been found dating back to the Iron Age.  It is Very Period.

No, they're not Period. They're twill-weave, which isn't Period. If  
the exact same fibers, dye, and buttons (not zippers, of course) were  
used, minus trademarks, but on evenweave cloth rather than twill, I'd  
suggest that they were Period-plausible, but not Period. Ingredient  
use + construction method. Ingredient *combination* is what I think  
we're discussing.

Now, I'm done with this. I've already posted my actual thoughts on  
CONTEST versus CAMP COOKERY, and I'm over it. Let's move on to a topic  
in which someone besides me is spamming the list.
