We offer a full range of colors and sizes in authentic Guayaberas

Guayaberas, also known by the names Mexican Wedding Shirt, Chacabana, Guayabel in our New York City boutique located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Should you be in the area we recommend coming in to try on our shirts, however if you are outside our area or unable to come in we are happy to assist you.

If you are buying the shirt for someone else it is helpful to know the man's jacket size or the woman's dress size as a reference.  If you are buying for a child it is helpful to measure a shirt that fits the child and compare to our guide below.  Our shirts are 100% cotton and could be prone to shrinking, so it is important to keep this in mind before purchasing so that you follow the proper care recommendations.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns about sizes. Returns and exchanges are allowed within 14 days of purchase, however we ask that you contact us first with the concern before shipping the item back to us.  Returns are handled for store credit only. 

 

Men's Short Sleeve Size Guide

In our experience the men's Guayabera Norteña in short sleeve is one size smaller than the man's jacket size, which uses the chest measurement as a reference. Men who like a tighter fit should go two sizes smaller than jacket size, but they should keep in mind this will also make the shirt shorter, with the bottom of the shirt just slightly lower than the pant waist line.

Women's Guayabera Sizing Guide

Guayaberas are traditionally worn by men, however our shirt makers in Merida Yucatan have created a stylish feminine version for Huitzilli.  It features the same high quality craftsmanship as our men's guayaberas, including open-work, pin-tucking, and embroidery.  These elegant details make it perfect for any "business casual" outfit and the soft 100% cotton manta is ideal for warm climates.

The women's guayaberas are darted, more fitted at the waist, and finished to a blouse length. Sizes roughly follow women's bust sizes, see chart for below for details.  If there are any questions on sizing please feel free to contact us and we will assist you in any way possible

Infant, Children, and Adolescent Short Sleeve Size Guide

Our children's guayaberas sizes do not run true to age as in US sizing. It is actually very helpful to measure one of your child's existing shirts for a reference, please see shirt measurements in this chart.  For your convenience we have estimated the approximate sizes for ages based on our experience - however keep in mind that children's sizes vary greatly so when in doubt please call or email us for assistance. When ordering for an event with a very tight time frame we recommend rounding up instead of down, since a shirt that fits a little big is preferable to one that is too small.
