Established fetish enterprise
Basement erotic shopping, featuring a huge selection of leather, rubber, fetish, sex toys and accessories. No longer the domain of its original 1980s owners, Expectations nevertheless remains a serious contender for the serious fetish consumer despite a marked decline in available leather goods. In April 2011 Dutch-born leather business Mister B opened an in-house 'Shop-in-shop' boutique Mister B stall here, and Mister B product appears to dominate the Expectations website, with a noticeable expansion of its retail presence following a shop refurbishment in August 2015. Other brands such as Barcode also have plenty of shelf space here. And as of 2015 a new team is overseeing the leather production. Tube stations: Old Street and Liverpool Street. Expectations closed at the end of December 2016 and will re-open, refurbished, in July 2017 as the London outlet of GEAR Berlin [see entry].
