Levi 501 jeans label – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are five major shopping centers in Managua where you can find stores such as Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Chanel, Swatch, Guess, and some local stores that sell high-end merchandise. You will find almost every popular brand of clothes here in Managua. The price of clothes imported into Nicaragua is a little more expensive in Managua than in Panama or Miami, but it is cheaper than shopping in San Jose, Costa Rica, or in El Salvador. We have very competitive prices here in Managua.
 
There are also a lot of stores here in Nicaragua that sell knock-offs, where, for example, one pair of Levi’s jeans costs only US $10. It is obviously a knock-off, but that is what ordinary people buy. You can go to a real Levi’s store and pay $30 to $40 for a pair of jeans.
 
Nicaragua has anything that your pocket can afford. You can choose between going to a knock-off store or to a store that sells the more expensive brands.

There are lots of clothing stores in Managua, Nicaragua. You can purchase both locally-made clothing and clothing made in other countries. The only thing about clothing made in other countries is that the price is a bit expensive in the stores.
 
Alternatively, you can get clothes in the local markets, but depending on how much you pay, the clothing could be either of good or disposable quality.

To buy good clothes in Managua, Nicaragua, I recommend instead, that you buy excellent quality fabric at the Centro Commercial Market and have a tailor custom make  the clothes for you. It will cost less than US $30 for custom clothing, including fabric. I had a beautiful skirt made that fits perfectly. Lots of people do exactly this here in Managua.

Yes, there are a lot of stores in Managua, Nicaragua to pick from where you can buy international and national clothing. You can go to malls or markets, whatever you feel more comfortable with.  Actually just in Managua we have 5 different malls. We don't have expensive designer clothes, but you can find popular brands such as: Moose, Quicksilver, Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger and so on, and the best part is that everything is affordable. There are also stores where you can find brands like: Christian Siriano, Steve Madden, Nine West, etc. Basically in Managua you have lot of options in clothing, it's up to you where to buy!
