Buenos Aires: For serious leather shopping

B.A. is known for leather. Overall, I was not that impressed by the quality and prices, until I met a local who said to go to 666 Murillo. He wouldn't even tell me what it was, but my friend and I took a local bus out there anyway (it's pretty far out, off lots of local maps). It turned out to be a factory store district for leather. Head to the 600 block of Murillo at Acevedo: There is one leather store after another. I ended up getting a beautiful, reasonably priced jacket at a store called Kitaro. Additionally, there are other factory outlet stores scattered throughout Cordoba Avenue from Av. Scalabrini Ortiz to Av. Juan Bautista Justo. You can take local buses or the subway to both areas.
Another general tip is that a lot of Argentinean businesses charge an extra 10 percent to use a credit card, so cash will almost always cost less.
