Tourists usually get accosted along Calle Florida by leather touts. I believe the prices there are much higher.
Walk along Avenida Corrientes to the area between Avenida Callao and Avenida Pueyrredon. You should be able to find shops selling leather goods, like wallets, belts, etc... that are reasonably-priced.
