Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

An inflation calculator I found on Google says that the £7.19.6 they were asking for the suit is now worth £141.40, whilst the 21/11 for pyjamas is now worth £19.43. Interesting that they advertised that price as 21/11 instead of £1.1.11 (as they did with 2 other prices which were just over £1), but I suppose it's just to make it look cheaper than it is - the same as nowadays items are priced at amounts like £9.99 because it doesn't have the same impact as £10.00.
