We found this shop in 2012 while visiting Buenos Aires, we bought 2 children's jackets at the time, we now have a 3rd grandchild and ordered a jacket for her also. The quality of leather and workmanship is excellent! I would have no reservations ordered another jacket from them. Great folks, great products! Muy bien' !! Gracias

Two colleagues and I from Ireland bought two capes and a reversible jacket from Silvia y Mario's in June. Quality very good and competitively priced and staff extremely helpful. On returning home we realised we had travelled without a belt for one of the capes. A simple email solved that problem as Ariela mailed a replacement belt immediately and without... More

If you're looking for good quality leather goods at great prices in BA, look no further than Siliva y Mario. As someone who doesn't enjoy shopping and generally feels overwhelmed by endless choices, the staff made me feel very comfortable as soon as I walked into the shop right up until I completed the transaction. The style of leather jacket... More

First off, if you mention trip advisor they will give you a 5% discount, so if you're reading this you're already ahead. My wife and I stopped in based on the existing reviews from trip advisor with the intent of replacing her old leather jacket with a new one. We ended up leaving with not only that but a jacket...

We had been told about this shop but without its name, we found it. Sylvia y Mario is a wonderful leather shop, they will make you a leather jacket to your measurements in 36 hours. They have many shapes and colours to choose from and are very happy to use your design as well. The reversible goatskin is amazing and... More

Purchased mens vest of very nice leather for very reasonable price, after shopping at three shops recommended by Park Tower hotel concierge. They made it to order in two days and the fit was perfect.

Purchasing leather in Buenos Aries is certainly what most tourists do. However, make it easy on yourself and make your way to this store. Near Florida, M.T. De Alvear550. Don't be hesitant that you must ring the store to gain entrance(not uncommon in BA). The quality, the style, the fashion is well worth it. (& we visited almost every leather... More

This shop was recommended to us by our tour guide. His suggestions were all on target so we stopped in after visiting the Galerias Pacifico. All the staff were friendly and helpful and not at all intimidating. The store is in a leather goods area where shop keepers are on the sidewalk trying to get you into their store....very off-putting.... More
