The word “Guayabera” was originated from the word "Yayabero", a singular nickname for those who lived in the Town of Yayabo River in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba. Although it was first worn by countryside men, it is now very common in all kinds of social and life events. The Guayabera’s varied design makes it the perfectly versatile shirt for any occasion from a casual brunch, a business meeting or beach wedding attire. So no matter where you wear it, you will always suit the occasion, feel comfortable and at the same time project elegance and distinction.
The "Traditional" Guayabera design is characterized for having four pockets, with a triangle detail and a line button. It also has two rows of pleats in the front, three in the back, 27 buttons in total and a hem surrounding these buttons. The back of the Guayabera features the three rows and a triangle, which resembles the Cuban flag.
