Easy to Wear, Easy to care for.
The guayabera shirt is lightweight, fresh, and easy to care for. The main goal of this shirt is comfortable, and this is what you get.

The fabric composition of these Clerical guayaberas is 65% Polyester and 35% cotton. The overall result is a lightweight fabric that won't stick to your body or makes you hot in summer with the benefit of not needing to iron.
Four front pockets on a shirt may look overkill, but they are other clothing items with similar features, such as Safari jackets. Our experience, these shirts are comfortable and one of a kind. The pockets are one of the main factors that makes them so unique.
Fits well and is more comfortable than any tuck-in shirt, especially in the hot and humid South Carolina summer! I've bought two and will recommend to my colleagues!

The guayabera clerical shirt has an appealing look; for example, you get the traditional guayabera shirt style and can do either a tab collar or a full collar design, looking just as you will expect on a clergy shirt.
Been an untucked clerical shirt makes a huge difference and our customers love it!.
Very good quality and comfortable. I have several and liked them so much I purchased this one for a friend who was always asking where I had gotten mine.
We designed this clerical guayabera shirt to fit and work with the tab collar (Roman Collar) and full collar (Anglican collar).
We did the tab collar function by creating an opening on the collar to slide a clerical plastic to archive the roman collar look as for the Anglican collar the shirt features two button openings on the front and one the back to accommodate for these full collars.

We measure these shirts from the exact point where the button is to the middle of the buttonhole (see Image); this means that there is at least 1/2 inch wiggle room on every size. In other words, you can move the button to gain that extra inch need it.
Using a collar extender will also make it easy to wear a button-up collar shirt. Most importantly, the collar extender will stretch. Therefor will give you some extra space to make the shirt more comfortable.
