Summerwear: The Guayabera Shirt

A traditional piece of menswear worn by Latin American and Caribbean populations. Recognized for its functionality and style, the garment’s best-known characteristics are its four pockets and two vertical stripes of decorative pleating and/or embroidery. The precise origin of the guayabera is uncertain, though it is believed to have emerged in Cuba in the late 19th century. Also referred to as a Mexican wedding shirt, the garment is popular in Mexico and the American states to its north. 

Here is a selection starting with a classic version, quickly moving to a more casual and streetwise fashionable interpretation of a Guayabera shirt.
