There is a shop for XL Mens clothing on Bäckerstrasse, just off Staufacher, and another shop in Oerlikon, but I'm not sure of it's exact location.
Bäckerstrasse 15; it's called Sascha's. However, LiBby is right in that it's a shoe store.

He's actually quite short...hmm, he possibly has an oversized ego.
Jokes aside, I was walking by the sotre one day, and I say a cool pair of ball shoes (basketball). I didn't really bother with looking at the sign or anything so I walked in and I asked whether I could try on the shoes on display. I wear size 12-13 depending on the brand/cut..so I asked for a 12. He looked at me funny and said that the smallest size he had was a 13 and he underlined that it's a store for tall people. Basically, he gave me a lot of attitude for an honest mistake or bad marketing (however you want to put). Either way, I thanked him for his assitance and went on about my business.
Unless it's part of the (unfunny) joke, you've got the story wrong - I'm 194 cm, and the owner is taller than I am. I found him to be a generally pleasant, if very talkative, guy. I'm also on the bottom end of his shoe range (size 47-48, depending on brand) and had no issues. Perhaps you've got the same attitude in real life that you have here, and he recognized it?

Apologies to the OP for going off topic, but in case you do decide to buy your friend shoes, that would be the place to go. Other clothes, not so much.
