I have never owned a leather jacket and think it would make a great main souvenir from my trip to Italy this summer. I will be visiting Venice, Rimini, Florence, Cinque Terre and Rome. I'm not rich so I need to get a balance of price and quality.
Which of these cities has the best prices/quality of leather jackets for women?
Would it be better to buy one at a street market or should I stick with a real store?
Do I negotiate a price?
With today's weak dollar, am I better off buying one in the US because the prices are just too steep for americans?
What do I look for in a jacket that makes it high-quality and long-lasting?
What would be a typical price for a classic women's jacket?
