X clothes started off on the corn exchange side of Call Lane and then moved to the opposite side of the street,then eventually moved to Boar Lane. I thought they might be the same - they did move out and I thought that went with a name change/new business.

X Clothes to Ted Moult. Has ever a thread veered off topic in such a surreal manner? What next the Harvey Nichols, Colin Crompton connection?

Is that really where Crompton used to get his flat-caps?? Or, where the pies were delivered from - when he used to rings his bell & announce that "T'Pies Are Here!!"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFZ_RSSG4CY
