Loved this shop and the helpful English speaking sales team. They patiently measured every belt for me till I found three the same length in different styles. And I saw every other customer get the same personal attention. I found out about the shop from the TripAdvisor forum discussions so it was very welcome.

It was all about shopping for Mr Myth at - Silvia y Mario - on a rainy afternoon adventure. We spent well over an hour sorting through racks while T tried on many items he liked until he found the one. Or should I say two. The first an awesome lambskin bomber style jacket and the second a goat skin... More

While we were on vacation in Buenos Aires this week I hoped to find a good leather factory so I that could have a copy made of my favorite coat which I had bought in Florence, Italy 15 years ago. I had read of this shop on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Silvia herself worked with... More

My first trip to Argentina, and having researched leather shops, I decided to make contact and visit the shop of Silvia Y Mario. I am so glad I did, as leather shops are everywhere, and the choices can be overwhelming. Silvia personally greeted me and walked me through the entire process. She is passionate about her trade, and you can... More

So glad we went. Very courteous, friendly and helpful. Fashionable styles with so much to choose from. They will alter any jacket to your taste and have it ready in a day or two, or make it from scratch to your exact measurements.

This is a great leather good shop. They have a lot of mens and womens jackets, sweaters, and accessories. I got a bomber-style men's jacket for $350 USD ($5600 ARS). My girlfriend got a few cashmere and silk blend sweaters for $35 USD ($550 ARS). The staff speaks English well, so it is easy for non-Spanish speakers. The door is... More

This is a great shop right next to Florida Street. They have many different styles of coats and jackets. We bought two jackets. Mine needed to be fitted and since the store has their own factory they were able to make the adjustments. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Well worth a trip there. R

I wanted to buy a leather jacket and was told this was a good shop to go to. Casandra was the sales representative that helped me choose a jacket. She then had it altered it so that it fit me (alterations are included in the price). It was ready in 2 hours as we were leaving that evening.

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
