Value for Money

Clothing in Buenos Aires is fairly cheap and plentiful, but bear in mind that the quality may match the price. Pay particular attention to seams and hems; stitching isn't always superlative. This is true even with international-brand items, which are often labeled "Made in Argentina."

Local brands come at even lower prices in the discount outlets on Avenida Córdoba (4400 to 5000) and in the unofficial new shopping zone, Palermo Outlets, between Malabia and Serrano—most chain stores have a branch here. End-of-season sales can work to your advantage, too. Remember, when summer is ending in Buenos Aires, it's just beginning in North America and Europe.
