Question Back in time, shop name help

Walk down Piccadilly approach and head towards Market Street. On the right , the corner of one of the roads was a shop. It sold all sorts of clobber and you went downstairs into it. The shop wasnít on the front facing Piccadilly, it was pretty much 1st shop down whichever street. Please help an old man with fading memory.

Just googled, you are correct. Iím convinced it had a more exotic name.

I can now rest easy.

Think Iím thinking of a different shop in the same area. A place on the corner of a side street that sold Ďcasualí clobber, Sergio Tacchini and the like.
