Photo above of Sexy Sexy clothes shop in Sheffield, and I'm looking for as many details and stories as possible about this legendary Sheffield shop.

Owned By Rex Caplan

Managed by Tony Smith 

What do you know about Sexy Sexy? Did you shop at Sexy Rexy? 

And why was it called Sexy Rexy?!!

BBC Sheffield and South Yorkshire piece from Thursday, 17 September 2009:

Sexy Rexy and other shopping stories

Another 'Sexy Rexy' thread on this site says the shop was 'owned By Rex Caplan and managed by Tony Smith'.... hence the 'Rexy'?

'Sexy Rexy' thread - January 1 2008

I was going to ask the date of the photo, as the car parked on the left of shot is a 'K' plate 1971-2, so can't be any earlier than 1971 (September 1st change was it?). Any car buffs out there recognise the model? I thought it was a Vauxhall of some marque (Viva, Cresta, Victor, Viscount) but the single headlight, the upright section on the bumper and and the model badge on the leading edge of the bonnet don't fit with these???

Then I look on Picture Sheffield and the image is dated 21/11/1972. At this time, I would just be out of short pants, so unlikely to be a customer of this 'boutique'! lol

Not sure I'd pay £16.95 for a suit now :)

Get yourself down to 'Primani'/ 'Pradamark' and you'd get the suit,matching shirt and tie and probably still have change out of fifteen quid! :P
