La Sombra del Arrabal

In this shop you will revive the "times of Gardel," when hats were an essential part of people's wardrobe. Hats of different styles: "chambergos" (broad-rimmed soft hats), funghi, the typical hat worn by elegant Buenos Aires locals representing the style of the men from the suburbs where tango became popular (from the Genoese "Fungo" - mushroom); "gachos" with a large ribbon and black trimming on the brim, a symbol of the city's underworld, the hat that was immortalized by Carlos Gardel. In addition to these conventional hats, there are innovative and exclusive designs. The shop also sells small items and clothing made with local materials such as leather, wood and different types of stone. Do your shopping here while listening tango.
