The Guayabera is a timeless garment synonymous with latin style
According to popular definition the traditional four pocket guayabera shirt was invented in Cuba for picking guavas. Today the guayabera is considered appropriate attire for formal occasions and is prized throughout the world – from Asia, to Africa and across the Americas and Caribbean. Because the shirt is worn outside the pants and without coat and tie, it is especially appreciated in hot climates for business and elegant social occasions. Guayaberas are also known as "Mexican Wedding Shirts" because of their popularity as the groom’s attire at beach and destination weddings. Details of craftsmanship are the hallmark of great guayaberas. Authentic design and quality fabrics such as pure cotton and linen distinguish the outstanding ones from the ordinary factory produced versions.
