|English term or phrase: gun checks|
|Wooly tweeds are key for caps, gloves, neckwear — even bags. Tartans, plaids, gun checks, houndstooths, herringbones. Tweeds and leathers combine for warm, sturdy items |
|Cuadros Príncipe de Gales|
I think it could be a typo for "Glencheck" which in Spanish is "cuadros Príncipe de Gales". You can see the two links (on the English one, at the very bottom of the webpage) below. Hope it helps! Cheers!

Following Taña's and Charles' indications, and going further in the second page on the English website I mentioned before,
I have also found that Glen-club checks are called -Strathspey checks-and, even though, it is not exactly the same, it could be similar to what we called -tejido de "pata de gallo"-. The thing is that, we don't make such a distinction between so many types of checks in Spanish. Thanks Taña and Charles! I hope it helps Analia!

cuadros "Gun club" (de dos tonalidades)
Los "cuadros Príncipe de Gales" corresponden a "Glen paid" o "Prince of Wales checks"...
"Glen plaid (short for Glen Urquhart plaid) or Glenurquhart check is a woollen fabric with a woven twill design of small and large checks. The name is taken from the valley of Glenurquhart in Inverness-shire, Scotland, where the checked wool was first used in the 19th century by the New Zealand-born countess of Seafield to outfit her gamekeepers, though the name glen plaid does not appear before 1926. ***Glen plaid is sometimes nicknamed the Prince of Wales check***, as it was popularized by the Duke of Windsor when Prince of Wales."
Also referred to as "Dog-tooth" or ***"Gun-check", Houndstoth fabric has it's origins in woolen cloths orginating from the Scottish lowlands. Houndstooth refers to a distinctive two-tone pattern characterised by broken checks or abstract four pointed shapes****."

In an early reference to houndstooth, De Pinna, a New York City based men's and women's high end clothier founded in 1885, included houndstooth checks along with ** gun club checks ** and Scotch plaids as part of its 1933 spring men's suits collection
"All-Around Suit ..... houndstooth and **gun club checks**, gabardine and calvary twills."
8) Beautiful Midweight Gun Club Check Jacket by Corbin Canvassed
This is absolutely gorgeous! Featuring fully canvassed construction and a full lining, this is one of the most beautiful ***gun club checks** I've seen--my pictures come nowhere close to doing it justice! The checks are a mixture of dark tan, mid-blue, sage green, and black on a mid-tan background with a beautiful rust check overlay.
